Thanks for the positive comments. Got pics on the Bragging board now just gotta figure out how to post them here.

I have been an avid bow hunter in PA for over a decade and have also enjoyed rifle, inline muzzleloader and flintlock hunting. I reload for every caliber I own and only own double action revolvers and semi-auto pistols. No single action revolvers yet. I started to really enjoy these older Dan Wesson Revolvers and have enjoyed collecting and acquiring varying barrel lengths. I am very much enjoying this open sight handgun hunting. I own two handgun scopes with rings for my Ruger Redhawks and a nice base for my Dan Wessons, but I am enjoying the open sight hunting for the time being. When my bifocal wearing eyes finally get so bad I can't make a shot using open sights, I think I will switch to the scopes.

Good shooting! My first big game with a handgun was a record book black bear with a DW 741. Still kicking myself for selling that one.

A FRIEND OF MINE SHOT IHMSA STANDING WITH A 741. HE IS A VERY GOOD SHOOTER AND THAT 741 WAS MAYBE THE MOST ACCURATE IHMSA REVOLVER I EVER SAW.

That is awesome about the back bear. Got one in New Brunswick, Canada with my bow. Too bad about the 741 you sold. I shot the doe with an 8" but I have a 6" and a 4" that go on the 741 as well. One of the fun things about these DWs is the interchangeable barrels. If I ever have to sell some guns there are several that will go in front of the DWs.
