I decided to try a red dot scope on my Ruger Redhawk .44 mag and went with a NC Star cheapie just to see what it would do. It looked real good until I fired the first shot then the thing came unglued. The laser quit and the objective glass is now rattling around in the tube. HA HA, oh well a cheap lesson learned. I still like the idea of having a red dot on my pistol, I just wanted to know where to start and if anyone has had any luck with them and what kind they use / recommend. Thanks!
