New Deer Slayer

Postby ranwin33 » Thu Dec 01, 2011 1:26 pm

Purchased this handgun the week of Thanksgiving. Been wanting one for the last several years, and my wife, bless her heart noticed me looking one over at Cabelas and said, "if you have been wanting one for that long why dont you just go ahead and buy it." Well I did not get the one at Cabelas but I did purchase one from a local gunshop in one of the small towns nearby.

Shoots like a dream with minimal recoil. Even my daughter shoots it with no complaint.

Ruger Super Blackhawk Hunter
.44 magnum

Now I just need to spend some time with it, maybe scope it, and get ready for deer season next year.

Have not purchased a holster yet, looking for a shoulder rig of some sort. Something like this: http://www.sportsmansguide.com/net/cb/s ... x?a=221814

Will do. I will probably get it when they offer free shipping again.

Would you have any recommendations?

Leather or nylon would be a preference. Not much more than $100.

That is a sweet looking pistol. It will certainly look great in the holster you're looking at too.

I guess you're first decision will be if you are scoping it or not, and then what holster will work for you.

I also just purchased a deer pistol for next season. It's a Magnum Research Lone Eagle that shoots a 7mm-08 rifle bullet. I bought a nylon scoped bandolier holster for it for $30 through Cabela's. It might be a little rough inside for a nice finish on the gun like yours, so a leather holster in a similar style would be my advice. I saw some on the Midway USA website in leather, & they have reviews by previous buyers that may help with your decision.

Thanks for the tip, I'll check out Midway USA.

For the time being, I won't be scoping it. Althought that might change by next deer season.

How about a picture of your gun.

It's a rear loading single shot that has a cocking lever near the front that sets the firing pin. You just rotate the breach 1/4 turn, load, and then rotate back. I put a Weaver Classic 2.5-8 power scope on it.

I have an old model super blackhawk myself. Its 44 years old, but man its by far my favorite hunting pistol. Want a smooth but powerful handgun that will easily take down a deer? Get a ruger .44
