I can"t decide which 45Colt Ruger to buy, a 4" Ruger Redhawk or a 5.5" Blackhawk convertible. The gun would be used as a sidearm, not primary weapon for hunting, woods bumming, and self defense. I would use it for targets of opportunity. I live in SC and hunt deer , hogs, etc. There are no large bears anywhere I have ever hunted but I might make some trips out west in a few years. I already have a 45ACP for self defense, so it would be nice for the ammo commonality with it. It seems like the double action Redhawk would make a better self defense gun. Does anyone have any experience with a Redhawk adapted to shoot 45ACP with moon clips. My son just bought a Blackhawk and I have been shooting it some and like it alot. I did some internet research about a Glock 20 in 10mm and that sounded like a perfect hunting/self defense gun until I picked one up, felt like a brick. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
