    Hey, I love a Smith wheelgun as much as the next guy; however, to allege that the Ruger revolvers aren't as well-made is malarky IMHO.

    I've always liked SA revolvers and a Ruger super Blackhawk in 44 mag with a 7.5 inch barrel minimum has always been my dream gun. Though I would take a freedom arms over a Ruger if I could afford it.

    Depends on what winning hands down means to you.

    I have a S&W prelock Trail Boss. It is indeed a fine 3” .44 magnum and shoots like a dream.

    I would not even dream about loading the cylinders with the stuff I load for hunting for my Super Red Hawks. The Smith would disintegrate at the molecular level.

    The triggers on the SRH will smooth out, you just have to shoot enough to make it happen.;)

    Yes to all that.

    My first GP100 had a wonderful trigger and even S&W fans couldn't believe how nice it was.

    My secret? A lot of rounds through it. A lot of dry fire too. Thousands of cycles on it.

    Absolutely.

    If it just sits in the safe until you go to the range it will never get smooth .
