Not a dumb question at all!this may be dumber than most of my questions, but are the Single action revolvers (let's say a blackhawk) meant to be fired one handed?
This. For me, the Ruger Bisley grip is much more comfortable to shoot, especially for hi-octane loads.Not a dumb question at all!
Personally, I've never found the "standard" single action grip very comfortable to shoot single handed, compared to say a S&W double-action revolver grip. Ruger (and others?) make a "Bisley" grip frame on some of their single actions that are MUCH more comfortable (at least to me) to shoot one-handed. The hammer spur is typically lower on the Bisley guns as well, to enable easier single-handed cocking of the hammer.
If you don't own a single action, but are thinking about buying one, I strongly suggest you handle a Bisley grip as well as the "standard" grip frame, before you decide which is for you.
Say what!....you may not deserve a single action...LOL! I can't fondle any of my single actions without throwing on a gunfighter rig and doing a few steely-eyed fast draws...and the lever guns, gotta do the Lucas McCain "Rifleman" intro a few times with each fondlingnot on purpose. LOL
For what it's worth, my first name is John and my middle name is Wayne. Never heard any jokes about it though.Say what!....you may not deserve a single action...LOL!

That doesn't look like a Bisley set to me, maybe the grip best I can tell with the white on white. But, the trigger also looks off and especially the hammer. Still pretty guns though.+++ on the ruger new vaquero bisley I picked up this consecutive pair a year or 2 ago and love them. They are 38/357 and i am only 5ft 8 max and these fit my hands perfect when gripping to shoot. I realize my finger is in the triggerguard as i was about to uncock it when the pic snapped. The gun is unloaded.
