    Good deal. I had one in blue, many years ago. Paid about the same for it IIRC. I didn't shoot a lot of magnum ammo in it, I seldom do in an gun, but 44 Special level loads were great.

    Enjoy it.

    Years ago I had a Ruger Blackhawk in the .44 mag/spec and loved it. Only problem I ever had was that the grip was a bit small for me. Although not large is statuture God gave me long fingers. I truly enjoyed putting .44 special rounds through it. With my grip, I had trouble with .44 magnums. At the time I was not into reloading so I traded it (stupid mistake made years ago) but I did enjoy shooting it. We used to shoot "pig" steel targets at 100 yards and believe it or not, I could actually hit some of them. Mine was blue. You have a fine pistol there and it should give you years of pleasure.

    In several ways, your gun is very similar to my Virginian Dragoon (the 'old model' would be even closer). My gun is a 'knuckle duster' shooting magnum loads; is yours?

    Thanks for the compliments gentlemen...!!

    My good friend felt that the $350 price tag for a hand cannon he didn't use anymore,

    and that wasn't too far off from the original price he paid for it NIB was fair...and I didn't argue !! ;)

    The Blackhawk was a sweetheart with .44 Special loads and hit POA /POI at 50 yards...and with it's weight

    and long 7.5" barrel, it barked with authority with the .44 Magnum loadings as we rang steel the other day.

    =============

    VT: I find the "plow handle" grip allows the gun to roll a little bit in the hand when heavy loads are fired,

    so that, and the shooting gloves I wore more than kept any felt recoil to a minimum off the Caldwell Deadshot

    Shooting Bags I used as a rest for the 50 and 100 yard shots I made on steel at the farm range my buddy owns near Chalfont, PA.

    Shooting gloves! That's the ticket. Next trip to the range, The Virginian, gloves and heavy loads.
