These two Blackhawks arrived at my LGS today. I'll be picking them up first thing tomorrow!



The Talo Birdshead .45ACP arrives on Monday and the other OM 3-screw BH .30 carbine (1971 - not converted) arrives Wednesday.

Man......have I got some shooting to do real soon!

What a nice pair. I would switch the grips though. The wood belong on the 357 and the rubbers' on the 30.

The rubbers are going on my .44 when hunting. I'm looking for wood for the 357 now...

A tidbit of advice, if your going to hunt with your .44 with the rubber grips, it would be best to do all your shooting, load development, ect., with those grips on it. Getting everything good and going with wood grips and then changing to rubber just for hunting will change your point of aim, because your grip will be different. At least that has been my experience. YMMD.

That's a good point. I'll take that advice seriously...
