    Soldierboy,
    I'll probably buy a .44 mag ih one year or two.
    I just love the looks of the superredhawk, something pristine and powerful, plus the unfluted cylinder is a killer.
    Also the S&W 629 PC with a comp is great.

    Right now, I'll settle for the .357 mag though, starting shooting .38 sp's, as per very sensible suggestions given above.

    So far, I did not change my mind about the 627 PC 5". Unfortunately the V-comp is not for sale here in Italy, the regular model will do though. I also pretty much like the idea of 8-rounds moonclips, approaching semiautos capacity.

    I'll just wait a little while to let ideas settle..., in the meanwhile I'm shooting the range rental: a S&W 686 6" .357

    Super

    mccoy: Sir; I have the Super Redhawk and Super Blackhawk in .44
    The Super Redhawk will never be a looker, but I wouldn't trade it or sell.
    A lot of fun, for a lot of gun.
    FYI; .44 specials work fine in the .44's
    stock up now
    just in case you think I forgot: You now have a .357

    Superredhawks: nice beasts, actually I realized the top one hosts more powerful rounds than the .44 mag...., sorry have yet to get familiar with all the available calibers.

    Another .44mag reminiscent of one of those big, busomy beauties:

    the S&W 629 8" performance center.

    Reviews are pretty good... All right, I agree, reviews can be bought, but, the looks of her sure make me drool...



    On a more serious note: this is apparently the 1st .44 mag which in Italy has been classified as a 'sportsweapon'.

    Regulations here allow you to detain no more than 6 sportsweapons and no more than 3 'common weapons'. Unless you apply as a collector, with a gunsafe and so on.

    Also, recent proposal of regulations restricting the use of weapons may strongly suggest handgunners to go for the "sportsweapon" items.

    mccoy: Sir; tell us about the Country. It sound intriguing, impossible but intriguing.
    There was a thread asking about something of your region or something like that.
    What about starting something called ?FROM OTHER COUNTRYs?
    with pictures.

    I'm interested. Thanks

    Craig,
    Italy is a country smaller than most American States, yet there is a variety of sceneries. Lots of art and history for sure. A few hours driving, or train or couch and you can usually go and visit Florence, Rome, Venice.

    These are the main destination of American tourists. Many more quaint places. Where I am, on the coast, I can stroll along the beach, or I can drive an hour and hit the mountains at 7000 feet altitude, or drive three hours and I'll be in Rome.

    Cuisine is delicious. Sure most of our women know their way around a kitchen and some guys as well, I used to cook when a young lad.

    In the other thread an American paratrooper who was based in Italy exchanged a few words in Italian. Italy is an allied country. I love that. The States have always been a benchmark for freedom and democracy, even though, of course, nuthin' is perfect in the domestic front...

    What kind of pics would you prefer? I'm going to attach some in this or in another thread...

    mccoy: Sir; sounds good. Do another thread. There was an Aussie here a while back maybe New Zealand, was a fellow from England.

    We are a patient bunch mccoy, (I think) so just keep us posted as you progress. And have fun while doing it. I've been shooting for around 60 years and am not ready for the modern big boomers. I learned long ago that the Macho game just gets you hurt. If I need more than .44 mag I will get a long gun.

    TOF,
    you are the voice of wisdom.

    I've been foolish enough in my early youth and now that I approached middle age I can bide my time.
    Probably more than a shooter got injured by those monster revolvers, and had to stop using guns for a while.

    Sure patience will keep me going a long distance. hope so.

    And...congrats for your 60 years shooting (started from the cradle, I reckon...)

    My three choices would be

    S&W 625JM
    S&W 686 plus 4" barrel
    Ruger GP100 4" barrel

    In that order. With the 625JM way in front of the other two.
