Looked at and held the new Ruger 44 special at the LGS yesterday. I really like it. Passed on it though. Mainly because it would be another caliber to keep stocked up on. It had a price tag of just under $600. The pistol, reloading dies, bullet molds or bullets, and brass combined, I think I could justify the price of a Redhawk. Don't care for the 45 Colt /45acp version because standard moon clips will not work in it, but the straight 45 Colt or the new 357 Redhawk. I already have components for them. Still the 44 special is a looker, but so is the 357! Maybe I should just build another MSR and get the revolvers out of my mind!
