Re: Birds head or traditional hog leg?
Yes, the Ruger Birdshead is a chunk, but on this 'new' frame not any more a chunk than an orig. Colt's Mdl P. and the 45acp is sweet in it. The 'old' Blackhawk sized frame birdhead was out of proportion for me. The new model birdshead fits into a back bluejeans pocket like made for it and just a bit deep in a front, slip it in and go for a walk.
But if you actually want to use the basic sights rather than just point & shoot I suggest you dont get a shiny sighted gun.
BTW, mine shoots cookbook loads for 200gr. cast to the sights if I do my part (getting harder all the time.....).
