I purchased one of the first M44 models in 1995, like the Tracker but in Stainless and paid more back then that the price you showed. it weighed 53 ounces and was wonderful for hogs, most 44 Mag loads will suffice on hogs. I currently carry a 2 1/2 " Stainless Tracker in 44 Mag that I found at a gun show and weighs 31 ounces. Currently my CCW. Do you have to pay shipping and transfer fees not included in the price? In Florida at the gunshows, there is a dealer that has a display so large that he rides around in a Segway. They always seem to have good prices on Taurus guns. I paid $350 for my Tracker snub, wish I would have bought two. Hope you enjoy the Tracker if you buy it. Shoot a box of UMC 180's at the indoor range. A big fireball with the porting and the blast is unreal. I have had many people move down the range to avoid the noise and blast. Remington lists them at 1600 fps, not sure what it will do out of a 6 1/2 inch barrel. Enjoy!
