blackhawk for two legged varmit? why a six shot, single action revolver for that. that gun would be an awsome hunting gun, but for 2 legged varmit.... id atleast have a double action for that. my 2 legged varmit guns are my taurs modle 85ul 38 spc. (like 1.5inch barrle, waighs like 11 oz.. great for cc) and my S&W sigma .40 (15 shot .40cal)

Oh, that Blackhawk was just the first one I bought. But it was quite a few years before getting more 'toys' to deal with them 2 legged varmints. Have an XD-40 and 1911A1 that are a lot more effective in dealing with them now.

I had a S&W 686 .357 with 8 3/8 barrel with a Leupold on it a few years ago,Shot a buck with it and it fell in it's tracks,it will for sure work with proper shot placement.You should just limit your range.

Extremehunter007, I also have the Sigma in .40 caliber, I would rate the sigma as a poor choice for a "new shooter" or a woman wanting a handgun for self defense.
The sigma doesnt have very good accuracy and I know it wasn't designed to be a hunting weapon it's sole purpose is for close range self/home defense but I would hope a new shooter would have a little better accuracy than what the Sigma offers.,,,, there's no safety mechanism so to reduce the chance of an accidental discharge, the trigger pull is purposely set at the factory to require more force.
To me, nothing about the sigma says "good choice handgun for beginners"
but that's just my opinion..
Good Luck...

i like my sigma. the trigger pull is a little long and heavey,and probably the reasone most call it inacreate due to the trigger pull. but i seem to hit my targets well with it.
