Re: A 44 Special by Hamilton Bowen

Lee...My first trip to the Bob Marshall Wilderness in 1986 resulted in a similar experience. We had all gone to bed in our tents and about 1 AM the horses in the corral started going crazy. Turns out a grizzly had come into camp, spooked the horses who kicked down the fence and scattered. The wrangl...

Re: A 44 Special by Hamilton Bowen

Lee...I haven't carried this .44 much, but it shoots great. I have a short barreled S&W 44 Magnum I have carried on several elk hunts in the Scapegoat Wilderness of Montana. A short barrel is a must when on horseback (or on a mule, which I actually prefer :) :) ).

Re: A 44 Special by Hamilton Bowen

I bought the stag grips in the mid-90s from Lynn Laudise. I wish he was still with us as he always found the neatest Ruger handguns and accessories.

Re: Old Model Blackhawk

Bill is correct that a former owner "customized" a BKH40. We will never know, but it would be very interesting to find out why those modifications were made.

Re: Plum frame RSS5

This Blackhawk 44 Magnum (s/n 475) was shipped in December 1956 and has a plum frame. It is not as striking as the frames of the .22 and .357, but kind of neat.

A 44 Special by Hamilton Bowen

I collect mainly revolvers in 44 Magnum caliber (Ruger and S&W), but most enjoy shooting guns in 44 Special. The gun below started out as a .357 Magnum and was converted to 44 Special with a 4-inch barrel and lanyard ring by Hamilton Bowen. It is a fun gun to shoot and carry. :) Bill http://www.foto...

I received my copy yesterday and have only scanned it so far, but it is another hit! Love the engraved Super on the cover. :)
