I was about ready to get a Glock 20 and a 6"KKM 10mm barrel. I would be using it for when I go backpacking. No big bears around me.
Then I got thinking about getting a Ruger Redhawk 4" in 44magnum. I've never shot a big bore revolver but have wanted to. I was handling the RR 4", along with a S&W 629 44 mag, at the local gunshop and they felt great in my hand.
I'm wondering whether it would a fun gun to shoot at the range and whether I could handle the recoil. I've shot plenty of 1911 45ACP but the 44 magnum would be a major step up in firepower and recoil.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
