    Thumbs up An American Classic: The .44 Magnum

    What other caliber has such a mystique?

    You can go anywhere in the world and others will associate a large wheelgun with the infamous Dirty Harry and his .44 Magnum.

    It's a true classic in every sense. Power, accuracy, versatility. It has it all.

    True- there are other upstarts more powerful, some are downright brutal, but, they are not true to the orriginal moniker: "the most power handgun in the world".


    An American Calssic: The .44 Magnum- post em up boys.

    I love shooting all of my handguns but this one still makes my jaw drop.

    Oh sure, go ahead and taunt me with your .44 pics. I still could kick myself for selling my .44 Ruger Redhawk. I really regret that move.

    My trail gun: a Ruger New Model Super Blackhawk .44 Mag with a 5 1/2" barrell. Simple but effective.

    Thumbs up

    Here's mine, A Ruger Super Redhawk with 9.5 bbl and a Simmons 4x32 Scope It's a definite rush to shoot a 44 . I had a Redhawk that I sold to get my Para LTC. I still miss it. But getting this makes it a little easier.

    Question

    Hey guys,
    I was wondering where and how to post 516 pieces of 44 mag assorted brass? I couldn't find a sales section!
    Some is once fired, some twice and some new! I might sell my dillion dies also.

    Randy

    Classified section is here

    I believe you can't see it till you hit 100 posts though.

    My 7.5" Redhawk, with 180 grain JHPs loaded over a stiff charge of Winchester 296 ball powder.

    Nothing wrong with this pic. Sure, it's not magazine-quality but it clearly shows just what kind of blast you're dealing with when a 44 mag goes off. Very nice

    Yeah, that's what I liked about my Redhawk. It doubled as a handy flamethrower.

    Have I mentioned lately how much I miss that gun? Man, I can be an idiot sometimes.

    Yep, gotta love the .44!
    I have a 7.5" Ruger SBH, I hope to go hunting with it this year (if I get drawn)

    I'm saving my money and will add a S&W M29 (pre-lock) to my cabinet one of these days!

    So many toys, so little $$.

    How do I like the .44 Magnum?

    Let me count the ways:

    Rugers:





    And, Smiths:




    I DO like 'em.

    Please excuse. The bottom Ruger is only a .44 Special.

    Oops! Forgot one. this Ruger was absent the day the family portrait was made:



    Its an old three screw. Was a studded barrel model, now gelded.

    Thank you, Robert.

    I was hoping you chimed in.

    Beautiful line up ....and yes, now I'm really jealous.
