I'm looking to purchase my first hand gun, and am seriously considering the Ruger Blackhawk Convertible. I'm deffinately looking at revolvers over semi-autos because they're less complicated for my experience with guns. I liked this one because it gave me the option of switching between a .357/38 special and a 9mm, nothing wrong with a little variety. If anyone has any views on the blackhawk or some other guns that I might want to consider I'll listen. Don't want my first gun to be something I'm not perfectly happy with.
