    I may still find a way to make it out that way and take you up on your offer... I'm not scared by recoil, but I know what my limits are as well as my preferred delivery "style", if you will. I don't mind a big slow, almost black-powder like shove. A huge sharp jab sucks though. I'd rather shoot hot 310gr pills out of a .44 Mag than hot 220-240gr versions... That's why I like the .45 Colt in a SBH, SRH or similar build gun as it can be loaded down to gallery gun/pepper popper loads or up to 300+gr pills pushing some kinetic energy with penetration to spare. The .41 is just a neat cartridge though and I love it in Dad's Model 57. I just really like the heft and balance of the SRH and with a trigger job it's everything the Smith is and more.

    I agree on the .41M.
    I've got a 4" M57 Mountain gun that's a pleasure to carry and easy shooting.
    I've also got a couple Ruger Blackhawks in .41M. A 4 5/8" standard and a 6 1/2" Flat top. Both of them are very manageable, even with stout loads.

    Although I've got one and love shooting it, the SRH is surpassed in butt ugly, only by the Taurus Judge.

    I posted this in the other thread, may as well do it here too seeing it's the hunting and shooting thread.

    We had a small competition going last night for rabbits. The rules were pistol only and they had to be over 50 yard shots. Our group on our ATV finished the night of with 18 of them. Needless to say we won:D

    We got dope out to a mile with 308's before we switched to 50 and 338. The SASR gives me wood. We are shooting at the Ridge line right below the windmills.

    Here is a pic of the Ridge we were shooting at looking to our shooting position. We got the guys out to 2700 and hoping to get them well beyond 3000 if they've got enough adjustment in their scopes

    There is nothing like ELR shooting. I'm very blessed to be able to have the opertunity to help out with the class.

    It doesn't get much better than being with a bunch of like minded guys on a 40,000 acre ranch doing what we love.

    A couple of my most used fox rifles, I use a 100w spotlight to locate the fox then switch over to the torch to shoot.
    Government is giving $10 per fox scalp at the moment, allows me to buy more guns and saws.
