    Tell me about the Taurus .44 mag

    I'm looking at purchasing a .44 mag 4" Tracker for sometimes carry.

    I'd like to hear the pros and cons of the Taurus Tracker version from those who have owned them, or currently own them before I make a decision.

    Tell me all about them please.

    That's a hard one to conceal but fine for open carry. It'll certainly "Make Your Day"

    The 4" Tracker -5 shot shouldn't be any harder to conceal than a 4" 5-shot .357. I was looking at one a couple months ago and believe it would be concealable. JMO

    I believe the tracker series you get 7 shots with a 357 mag. That being said, both are going to be pretty big guns.

    One thing to consider with a 44 mag. is overpenetration. Depending on the load your going to carry, it might not stop inside your intended target.

    I looked at Taurus when I was looking for a 44 mag, but decided on a Ruger Redhawk with a 5.5 inch barrel. Of course this is for hunting and not concealed carry.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    I'm 5'9" 160lb wet. Anything I carry is open carry

    I just want the BIG BANG! (Flash grenade style)

    I've been looking at .44's as I have 2ea .357 magnums already and my daily carry is a G30.

    I'm mostly concerned with durability of the Taurus as compared to the S&W. Anything I should be aware of??

    As I stated I'd have to get a truck to conceal it. Open carry it is!
