    A Redhawk with the Old Uncle Mike's aftermarket grip, is the best feeling big bore revolver I've ever handled. I have them on two of my Redhawks. I wish those grips were still available.
    The Ruger six series revolvers are my favorite medium frame revolver. I have an older 4" stainless security six that's a joy to shoot and a pleasure to carry in a belt holster.

    I think the Six series is the ultimate evolution of the double action revolver. As good as the GP is, I think it is a step backwards in most ways.

    I had a 8” stainless Redhawk in .41 magnum about 30 yrs ago, with Uncle Mike’s grips...know exactly what you’re saying Steve. Sold the gun to one of my brothers and he still has it to this day. He knows if he ever sells it, I get first dibs.

    Last fall
    I saw some taurus's at my local shop
    Very inexpensive.
    So I bought a g2c and a g3 and let my sister choose the one she liked
    She liked the g2c the best.
    Later they got a g3c in so I bought
    A couple of those
    I like that size and can shoot them as well as my fullsize.
    No failure's of any kind in many rounds
    Through them.

    The GX4 subcompact was just released
    It's a all new design
    And trigger system.
    No restrike
    It externally looks like my tx .22s

    I tried Pachmayr and Hogue but neither were as comfortable as the Uncle Mike's.
    I'd like to find a 5 1/2" RH in .41M. The one below is .44M.

    I’m interested in the GX4 as well and how it performs.

    There is data that indicates:
    .45 - one round
    .40 - two rounds
    9mm - three rounds
    Everything else - empty the clip

    I couldn't resist any longer and put a Taurus G3C in layaway jail. 3 mags included, Glock sights compatible, surprisingly good trigger pull: I guess there are worse ways to spend $265.00. If it likes my cast bullet loads we will have a winner!

    Nothing wrong with that...I like both my G2C and G3C.

    Either the Glock 19 when I have a little "space" or Spring Field Armory xds45 when I don't. For female?? S&W M&P Shield (9mm), nothing comes close to weight, recoil, performance at that price point :) ( My female shooting partner clicks down those steels one right after the next with one as well )

    I have a security 6 with 4" barrel in blue with a Pachmeyer grips, spring kit and trigger job. I used to shoot competition with it 30 years ago. Well over a thousand rouns through it. I also have a GP100 in 6" stainless. Nice gun but not the same love as the security 6.

    Had a GP-100 and never could shoot it as well as the Six. Traded it even on a Marlin 336 Texan, a very good decision!

    Heres a couple more of mine: Taurus 856 and old school Charter Arms Undercover, both .38 Special. I feed 'em the Lee 358-150-SWC over 3.1 grains Accurate Nitro 100 for a very accurate 712 fps across my chrono. Gave them some exercise this morning in fact.

    My S&W 637 .38 took a swim on Sunday. I was helping dad push the boat onto the trailer and I took a tumble into the lake. The 637 was in my pocket along with two reloads and got soaked. When I got home I dried everything off as good as I could and gave the revolver some WD-40 to displace the moisture. Yesterday I took the revolver and all the ammo that got wet out for a test fire. Every round went bang like normal. Its not uncommon that my ammo gets wet, since I do most of my fishing by wading creeks. From what I can tell a brief soak doesn't affect the rounds, I guess seating the primer and crimping the case mouth waterproofs it just enough. Still, I relegate them to practice rounds just to be on the safe side.

    I always sealed rounds I carried on float trips with a little lacquer around the case mouth and primer. Never had one fail to fire.
