    Hog and Ruger .44 Magnum Red Hawk story

    Less than a month ago, JonJen advertised selling his Ruger Redhawk. A friend of mine wanted one and they made a deal. My buddy has bagged 4 hogs with it since that time. Here are some proof photos

    This is my serious Joe Outdoor'sman friend who will sit in a tree stand from 10:00 p.m. until 2:00 a.m. with it 10 degrees. He is much more serious of a hunter than I am, but he always brings home the bacon, venison or whatever he is hunting. The only hunting I was ever more successful at was wing shooting. He holds Boone and Crocket Texas records with Compount, Long and re-curved bows, so I wasn't surprised how many hogs he has taken with the Redhawk. He has taken two others with his Compound bow during the same time frame.

    Just another side note, JonJen was a great seller to do business with and I think all parties involved were happy.

    You have no idea how well that makes me feel that:
    1. The pistol is getting used as it was intended to be used.
    2. That it is in the hands of someone who appreciates it and has the ability utilize it. She was a pretty Safe Queen while I had her, But now she is out of the closet!!!

    I wouldn't be doing right if I didn't make note that Lonestar Jake managed to get all the parties together in this transaction. Everyone was a class act....well the seller may have been of questionalbe character being from the big city and all.

    Seriously, thanks for the update!!!! And thanks for the kind words.

    I stopped to take a good deep look at the photos. At how thick that brush is around him and the hog, then at the other photo where the hog is laying on that bare sandy soil. For the greatest part this photos could have been taken in black and white there is so little color in them. Yet to me it screams volumes of TEXAS loud and clear. Only a Texan could love such a soil, landscape and openess. Beautiful in all it's glory.

    My friend, Mr. Joe Outdoor'sman, has made the observation that his primary goal is complete penetration to have a better blood trail to follow. Magnifying these two kills, it appears both were head shots and I think these two little piggies dropped where they stood.

    I think the other two he shot as well as the two taken with his bow wondered off and died. He eventually found them in daylight only 30 yards from where they had been shot. Shooting at night, it is easy to lose track of which way the wounded animal goes. As Mr. Joe Outdoor'sman said, You see a blinding ball of flame followed by a green wall of smoke, (he uses a green illuminator light) so you don't see what direction they are going.

    He has been using the 240 grain hollow points he got from JonrJen along with the Red Hawk, but has ordered 300 grain hard cast flat points to develop his own load for hogs, again, wanting complete penetration.

    Great story, it sounds like all involved had a great deal... well except the hogs...

    Hopefully in a couple of weeks I'll be able to fill the freezer with some myself!
