      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".

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

      The one in my avatar is 27 years and it's still like new. I also have the box it came in.

      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.

      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.

      Nice stuff guys...

      Esp the Smith above.

      If I owned that gun, I'd be feelin' 'lucky'.

      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.
