Picked up this Ruger Redhawk this pass weekend. It's a new one in 45acp/45colt. I took it shooting today and it did well. Had some miss fires with the 45 acp loads but I'm going to try a different brand of ammo and see if it happens again. If it does I will call Ruger. So next time I will shoot 45 acp first and then 45 colt. Maybe it had some crud under the extractor star. Anyway the 45 colt loads went bang every time. My one complaint is the trigger pull, stiff to say the least. I'm going to have to give this one a lot more trigger time to get use to it. I've read else where others have the same complaint. The 45 acp loads were Fiocchi, I'm going to try some Remington factory ball. Now for the pics. Here it is with my S&W 25-2. love the 45 bore.
