Review of the Ruger New Model Blackhawk .357/.38 / 9mm convertible
I just picked up a Ruger New Model Blackhawk .357/ .38 special / 9mm convertible. My first impressions are great. Shooting the .38 and 9mm have low felt recoil. Point of aim out of the box is a little off, but its raining, so I will make adjustments asap when its not raining. I have large hands, so the grip could be a little more comfortable, but a Hogue grip should fix that easily. I didn't shoot at paper, so I have no groups to speak of, but I'll post up some later on. Thus far, I see it as a great purchase and something I should be able to shoot a lot due to it being capable of shooting 3 calibers.
Will post up a couple pics later on.

Yeah, I was wondering about how that would work out. I reload and a friend of mine casts bullets. Thats one reason I bought it, I can play around with loads.Weakness of attitude becomes weakness of character!

I would think it is an excellent survival gun due to the variety of ammo it can shoot should the "day after" the SHTF senario ever arrive.
