I'm reaching out here guys.
    HERE!
    TAKE Two of these and go to the range and call me tomorrow if the itch/rash persist!

    I bought mine after I got my Marlin 44...that thing about having a long gun and handgun in the same caliber. I got it, loaded it with 240 grain factory rounds and learned quickly what the guy at the gun shop said...I didn't enjoy shooting it. I loaded my own with Trailboss and got it to be a bit more fun but decided that it's primary purpose is for someone who wants to hunt with it after spending money and time to find grips after grips to make it more comfortable to shoot. I'd be surprised if I shot more than a few hundred rounds through it.

    Now I have a 357 Rossi on my list to share ammo with my Dan Wesson Model 15 and my hopefully soon to arrive Taurus 605.

    AHH--the revolver was Military issue before the 1911, just saying beto idea is another pie in the sky.

    Don't have a 44 but I got a 41 mag, had three 41 when I use to hunt.
    now I keep this just in case I want to go hunting and for the good memories I have with it.
    Not going to be buying anymore of these or a 44 I don't think?

    A .32 H&R Mag & a .41 Mag are both still kinda-sorta on my want list. Not high on it, but they're there...

    Just a doggone minnit. The highly esteemed Samuel Colt designed that plough-handle for a reason! The thing slides in your hand to eat up that "recoil". I have a Ruger ( ETA: 10-1/2" barrel) SBH that I regularly shoot max loads of #296 powder and a 240 grain bullet. And it is fun, especially to watch my skinny little granddaughter who can hardly hold the thing up with BOTH hands fire off a couple cylinder-fulls.

    Now the same recoil in a DA revolver is a different thing.

    I'm suggesting, like was mentioned before, go rent couple or find a friend who has one or two - fire a boxfull and see for yourself, and I'll bet you are filling out the paperwork in a heartbeat.
    You must be careful what you pretend to be, because in the end, you are what you pretend to be.

    Where, exactly, is this itch of which you speak?

    “Violent crime is feasible only when it’s victims are cowards. A victim who fights back makes the whole business impractical. - Col Jeff Cooper

    With over 200 million firearms in private possession, in addition to a collective ammo round count of over a trillion rounds, it should be obvious that we in the firearm community and culture are NOT the problem!

    Governments don’t create human rights; they either recognize them or suppress them

    Since everyone is parading their Dan Wessons, I didn't want to feel left out.

    I think it's a case of Wild Hare induced dermatitis. Where the Hare crawled up I ain't saying.
