So the wife does not like toting around the 44 super blackhawk. She loves the power and pop of it and just loves shooting it. Scary I know. The first time she lite it off she just looked at me and smiled and I thought Oh (*^( she likes it. She and I fish all over alot. We do get seperated on the river a bit, around 20 to 100 yards apart. She is looking for something to carry. She is an excellent shot, alaska girl, been fishing up here over 30 years. She and I saw the Taurus 44 with the 4" barrel and she liked it. I have a Gloc .40 semi but she is not impressed with that. What do you all think of this gun? Also any suggestions on a handgun for a lady (whos is kind of small 5'2 140lbs but not scared of any weapon) to shoot. She has shot everything from the 454 to the 22 and all inbetween. I appreciate any input you all have.
