I enjoy Ruger and FA single action revolvers but the FA 97 is my favorite gun of any type. A 5.5" 44 special has been my "go to" deer hunting gun for several years now. I've had excellent success with this revolver with iron sights ( green fiber optic ) but the adjustable Trijicon RMR is even better. It's much better than irons early and late in the day and can still be carried in a belt holster.
Of course, this revolver can only be appreciated by a handloader. If I couldn't load then I would be looking for an FA 97 in 41 mag.
