    ...I'm out right now...


    ...been through an original Charter Bulldog .44 3" in the mid-70s...excellent and reliable


    ...Nickel Pug .44 in the 80s...

    ...Smith 696 in the last 5 years
    ...Taurus 431 Stainless and 455 Stainless in the last 3 years...

    ...don't have a .44 at present...but the virus may re-present at any time...holding out for a Smith, though...might be awhile...they made a run of stainless 3" iron sights models about 15-20 years ago and called them 629...that would be perfect...

    I'm very interested in eventually picking up either the Model 624 or Model 625 exactly like the nice ones Dogboy13 has. I'd like to work around concealing a big-bore N-Frame. Love those two cartridges.

    An out-of-state friend has a Model 625, seen below (top), that I've shot on a couple of occasions. Wow! What a revolver! Very accurate, as in match-grade. Just a really nice gun all around.

    I have often thought that a Charter Bull Dog 44sp would be a very good car carry gun.

    44sp 200 gr. HP is very effect.

    B-b-but your name is Snub44! How can you not have a .44?

    I'll pass on the big bores. The .357 is enough punishment for me.

    ...if you'll shoot a steel-framed .44, you'll see why they were so popular...in .44 Special

    ...I've never fired a .44 Magnum in a revolver...and won't...I don't even shoot .357 anymore....38+P instead...but the .44 Spl is fun...and manageable as a .45ACP from a 1911...from an N-framed revolver...

    I've never actually fired them side-by-side, but I believe (subjectively) my .44 Special Bulldog is considerably milder to shoot than a full-house .357 in my Security Six.
