Ruger Bisley 7-1/2 inch in .41 Magnum. Owned it a long time, then sold it, then bought another, which I also sold after finding a Freedom Arms Model 97 6 inch in .41 Magnum.
Thought I'd be the only one.
About fifteen years ago, at age fifty, I came on here and asked for advice about choosing my first handgun.
A couple of buddies had Blackhawks in 357, another a Taurus 92C in 9mm, another a Virginia Dragoon in 44 mag, and an Uncle had a Colt Trooper III. (I think it was a III)
Anyway, I knew I wanted more than a 357, and something a little less usual. Nor did I need everything the 44 mag had to offer. And I wanted target capability, targets which would satisfy a life long rifle enthusiast.
I was considering an EEA Witness in 10mm or a 41 mag revolver. The guys here, Bob, 41 Keith (RIP), P Weed and a few others, guided me toward a Ruger in 41. Of course there were those who told me I HAD to purchase a 22 rimfire. That only an idiot would buy a magnum for his first handgun.
I think it was Bob who sent me a link to a guy with five Davidson's Ruger bisley Hunter revolvers in 41 mag. Buy it now $500. I sent him the money for one and purchased a Nikon 2x20 to go in the Ruger rings. 500 cases, a couple pounds of H110, a pound of Unique, 500 Berry's 210 gr bullets, a couple hundred Sierra 170s and a couple hundred 210 gr XTPs got me through the next six months.
Then Bob came out to Idaho and explained that Handguns were not meant to be shot like a short barreled rifle. Thus I started a search for a DA Smith in 41.
That first 6 inch Smith is gone now. Replaced by my pride and joy, a Smith Mountain Gun in 41. Also joining it in the stable are a bunch more Ruger SA and DA in 327 and a Taurus Titanium in 41 for carry. And I did finally get that 22 about a year ago, a Bisley Single Six five inch.
