I just picked up a new Super BlackHawk Hunter at the big gunshow in Phoenix today. What a mad house. No joke; I waited in line about an hour and a half just to get to the ticket counter. That doesn't count the 25 minutes or so waiting to park the truck.
There was more people buying ammo than anything else. My guess is that most of them weren't reloaders.
The sight of it reminded me of pictures I've seen of the food-relief lines back in the Depression days of the 1930's. Folks would walk out the gate of the gunshow carrying cases of ammo and looking like they'd just recieved a box of badly needed food to tide them over for a while.
Now back to the original subject; This new revovler is a replacement gun for the Desert Eagle I've been shooting for a couple of years. With the Desert Eagle I was basically limited as to the type of bullets I could shoot out of it because of the gas operated system it uses to cycle.
Lead is much cheaper. I work right next to the tire department at my job so, I get the lead for free. No one ever gave me Jacketed bullets for free.
Anyhow; Do any of you more experienced SAA Revolver guys know if either Hogue or Pachmayr makes Cushy aftermarket grips that will fit on a SBH Hunter model?
I know they make them for the older Blackhawks with the square trigger guard but, this revolver has the round trigger guard.
The answer to my question has more than likely aready been answered in one of the thousands of threads on this forum site. I just wouldn't know where to begin to look for it so, I thought I'd ask.
