Whether it is hunting for trophies or to put food on the table, there are few tests better for a shooter than taking down some game. In the times before guns, bows were commonly the tool that people relied on, requiring that they often get closer to their prey. With the development of more advanced rifles, today’s hunters are able to shoot from farther and farther away, allowing them to often take out game hundreds of meters away. Of course, some hunters prefer the challenge of getting closer to their prey, which is why they might look for a big-bore handgun to do the trick.
While there are a great many to choose from today, selecting the right hunting weapon can be an important decision. Some of these big-bore handguns are designed specifically with hunting in mind, making them an exceptional choice. When you decide that it is a revolver you are after, you won’t find many more ready to deliver than the Ruger Redhawk. Designed with the most advanced features and offering a variety of calibers to keep you on target, this exceptional firearm is sure to help you catch whatever it is you are after.
Learn About the Ruger Redhawk
Offering the choice between a classic hardwood or recoil-reducing Hogue Monogrip, the Ruger Redhawk was designed to ensure anyone could get what they are after. Its trigger relies on a single spring mechanism, which provides a light and crisp pull. To ensure the most reliable operation, it uses a triple-locking system, which secures it in the front, rear, and bottom for the best cylinder alignment. Your accuracy is further supported by colored front sights as well as adjustable rear sights, which features a white outline to keep you on target. Thanks to its rugged stainless steel construction, it was designed to handle use in the field while firing those heavy magnum loads. More importantly, the patented transfer bar mechanism ensures that you avoid accidental discharge as you go about your business.
