I have been thinking more and more about what purpose heavy caliber double action revolvers serve. From heavy loaded 357s up to 480s why have a double action revolver? At the range you are going to thumb back the hammer to be as accurate as possible. When you see that deer coming in you are going to pull the hammer back and settle in for a good shot. On the big kickers you can't get the sights back down out of recoil fast enough that you can't cock the hammer. I can see DA in 38s, 32s and 22s but on the big stuff I don't get it. I like my Redhawk but I find myself shooting it as a SA.
