Just bought this 3.75" Talo edition Ruger Super Blackhawk. I'm totally wowed by this revolver. Finish is great, balance is exceptional, trigger is amazing. I say this having had a 5.5" Blackhawk in .45 LC that I could never warm up to. Recoil should be stout with the short barrel and I'll lose some velocity, but it looks so good I can deal with it.
