I'm usually not much of a revolver guy, but I picked up this .44 Special 4 5/8" Bisley Flattop last week and have finally had time to snap some pix. I'll shoot it as soon as the flatlanders next door go home to MA, but I'm sure it will be a keeper. Originally made as Lipsey's exclusives, I think they're now cataloged. They used the medium sized all steel .357 Blackhawk frame. Perfectly balanced and an intuitive pointer.

For some of the local Filers who know me, yes, this is a Ruger program gun I got from Dick. See y'all in Concord on Labor Day W/E.

Nice!! And it is chambered for the sweetest centerfire handgun cartridge known to man!

I keep meaning to pick up a standard 4-5/8" .44 Special Blackhawk but something always comes up.

American Rifleman has a great article that emphasizes using the single action revolver for protection i.e. carrygun--Gunsite teaches a course..looks interesting, they even teach speedloading for a SA!

That was the first thing I read this month. Some good tips in the story but the course would be awesome to take.
