New Redhawks, who's waiting? Who's Buying?

The larger of my LGS has one on the shelf. Thus, I felt obliged to visit with them. I'm liking the some aspects, but going to wait, see what pans out.
New price is $875, with haggling expected at this famous place, made so by a TV show, or possibly their annual machine gun shoot, that's still pretty steep for a snubby with wrist twister grips...

I have an Alaskan in 454 and can shoot the 454 but of it but 50 rounds is my limit. 45 colt heavy 120 rounds or so is fine.

Howdy Andre, tempting because .45 LC & .45 a.c.p is a dynamite dual. I've had them both at the same time before and did I ever fall over for the LC. There is simply no more versatile round that can be chambered in a carry handgun.

Everything from cowboy action, to grizzly to personal defense. And in the right gun very easy to control and with a bullet slightly bigger than the a.c.p.

But I simply can't justify that kind of money unless I can carry it and I'm not totting around 40 + oz. I want Ruger do something perhaps in the SP101 series and I want it over 25 oz but under 31 oz. With 30 oz being the real sweet spot for me.

Yeah, that's a lot of cash. I think I'll wait and see on those.

Not a huge fan of the snubbies. In a 4" barrel I'd buy one.

I never buy the "new thing" just out (well almost never, I jumped on the 1st S&W M69 I saw) at full MSRP. New guns I buy are usually on clearance to make way for a new "improved" model. The main way I acquire my guns is by being a "bottom feeder". I let others buy the guns new and take the depreciation. Then, when they get bored, need a transmission rebuilt, need to hire a lawyer, or want to get rid of the gun for any other reason I'm there to make a fair offer. They get more than the pawn-shop would offer, and I get a bargain. The key to it all is a buddy of mine that repairs appliances. He's a born talker and he asks anyone with visible gun cases or trophy mounts about their shooting and hunting adventures. In the course of the conversation he always mentions he is looking for old guns they may be interested in selling. He primarily looks for semi-autos he can flip quickly for a profit. If they bring out a single action he calls me. All four Ruger revolvers in my avatar (two .45lc Vaqueros & two Single Six convertibles) came to me that way. They were all between $300 and $400. The most expensive Ruger Revolver I own is the minty 1981 Super Blackhawk 7.5" .44mag I bought from a local gentleman for $450. I have no plans to ever spend $875 on a revolver.

I love my 69, but it had damaged rifling from the factory (bulge ring ) and they replaced the barrel and I had to send it back AGAIN because of force cone erosion near the top after 250 rounds. Might be an alignment issue as well.

I'm interested in the new Redhawk. I won't be able to afford it until my FLGS's Ruger Days in August, and by then my wants may have changed.

After I send my .45 ACP-LC Redhawk back for the 2nd time, so Ruger can "finish" getting the gag out the action........I may consider getting one of these.
