    I put my pinky under the grip. You will get used to it, and I think it provides a more stable consistant grip. I can shoot both the plow handle and the bisley accurately, but for heavy loads I prefer the bisley. Make sure you check your throats. I haven’t seen one yet that were correct from the factory. I love my single action Rugers, but they usually take a little tweaking to get them just right.

    Very nice...someday I may trade my Redhawk 44 Mag for a 45lc. I love the big bore...but the magnum is hard on my hands...and these hands are getting older now.

    redhawk

    The only stupid question...is the unasked one.


    Not all who wander....are lost.
