Thanks to someone in the wish list thread posting a picture of one of these, I had to have one. It was lust at first sight. Plus I needed a .44 magnum in my lineup again. I sold my BIL my Super Blackhawk probably 20 years ago.
I just put 20 reloads through it chasing my pattern around before realizing that I don't like the orange blade as the glare off it is hard for me to center in the rear sight, so on went the red dot. I was going to put it on eventually anyway. It's an Ultradot Micro HD. 2 MOA. That should work. Now to reload a bunch more and sight it in

I've read about guys swapping out the grips, but they fit my hand perfectly. And the trigger breaks at what feels like 4 lbs in SA. It's very crisp, so it may be heavier than what it feels. DA is super smooth. Recoil feels like a 1911 with the ports.
I need a major reloading session. I'm not going to be happy with just a hundred rounds or so lying around.
Fine lookin' sixgun you have there! I tip my hat to you for having good taste in wheelguns........!

Very nice! I generally prefer Ruger revolvers but those S&W Performance Center revolvers are awesome and seem to me to be in a league of their own. Great looking revolver!
Excellent firearm. Yes, ammo will be on the pricey side, but these guns don't need to have thousands of rounds put through them.

I saw that shockwave. I was thinking of picking up a box because I only had 20 rnds reloaded at home until I saw the price. That's ridiculous, over a buck a round for a common pistol cartridge.
Sweet. Fine looking handgun.
