Firing Line: 07/06
Re "Cowboy .38 Specials: EMF Is Our Pick,
Ruger Gets A Buy Nod," June 2006:
Thanks for your great review of the Ruger Blackhawk and some of its competitors. Coincidentally, this same handgun was "reviewed" in another magazine in the same month. What a difference! While the competing article was basically an uncritical description (and complimented the transfer bar mechanism, which you found problematic in your test), it largely compared the new Blackhawk to the original.
