    If you want talked out of it, then the .44 Remington Magnum is a lie. It's really less than a .43 caliber at .429".

    Go for a .45 ACP, .45 Colt, or a .454 Casull. They are all .45 or slightly bigger.

    Yes, I owned a 44 Magnum at one time. After a few range trips like this, I decided that I really did not need one any more.

    Yep shot them until I couldn't hold them; Ruger RedHawk 7.5" ss, Ruger NM Super BlackHawk 7.5", S&W 29 6.5" made when the firing pin was on the hammer.

    Now I keep them around for those "manly men", most of whom don't get through the first cylinder, not your store bought stuff.

    I agree with Ron and Krusier!

    I had the same itch a while back. Went to my LGS with cash in hand. The store clerk was very helpful up until the moment he said "you aren't going to enjoy shooting this",....

    I left with the cash and not with the gun.

    Spent the cash on Gin and Tonic instead. Tastes better than Preparation H.

    I owned several, including three different S&W M29s. That was decades ago when I was young and adventurous. The older, wiser & more practical me doesn't really have that itch any more.

    If You get one make sure You take up reloading if You don't already, factory ammo is pricey at close to a dollar a round.
    I have a Taurus model 44 and enjoy shooting it, the hardest part of a range trip with it is putting it away.

    You are getting a lot of comments along the line of "It's makes no sense", "You are not going to enjoy shooting this", "Only good for bears and hunting". Some of these comments maybe close to if not dead on correct. However, if you go shoot a 500 magnum a few times, you will begin to notice that the 44 magnum is kind of a sissy round to fire.

    So, what's it going to be? Well, do you feel lucky punk?

    Personally I recently sold a Rossi 44 magnum and don't miss it at all.....but then I never fired it either. And if I do get the need for personal hand and wrist abuse well there is always that trip to the closet that can be make. The closet is where I keep my Taurus 444 44 magnum titanium beast. It's not the beast that my Taurus 500 was, but then there is a reason that I no longer own my Taurus 500.
    I have often heard that "Change is Good". If this is a fact, why does history tend to repeat itself so often. I'm guessing that it is so we can learn from our mistakes that change is good?

    No, no, no, you absolutely do not need it. In fact, you know you really don't want one.

    Now, however, it is your civic duty to keep the economy rolling, so you must buy one, but you just don't need it.



    [please PM me and I'll send you my transfer agent's address so you can ship it to me because hey, you don't need it and you don't want it.]

    They're extremely accurate and fun to shoot. Even without reloading, ammo is available in a great range from mild to wild. While none of it's dirt cheap, it's not so high that you can't afford to pop off 40 or 50 rounds with some regularity. I enjoy my big heavy 44 mag so much that I had to buy a smaller, lighter 44 mag. The top is my S&W 629-6, the bottom is my Mdl 69 5 shooter. If you've never shot a 44 mag, is it as bad as you think? Probably not. Notice that both of mine have Hogue rubber grips for a reason, but they're both quite tolerable in moderation. Do you NEED a 44 magnum? Maybe not, but if you like revolvers there's no reason NOT to have one (or several)


    I shot these 5 shots yesterday at 25 yd offhand with the 629. 2 1/8" group. That was with 240 gr ammo at about 1050 fps. Enough to know you're shooting a magnum, but not enough to hurt. I shot 25 of those yesterday and another 25 at about 1300 fps, which is just about enough.
