Well they are no more accurate than a S&W 29 or the Ruger Redhawk. You still have to watch what you buy as not all of them are built like a tank. I think everybody wants one just for the fun of shooting them. I would like to get the Ruger Blackhawk in .44mag. I had one years ago but let it go in a trade. I like to have it in the 5 3/4" to 6 1/4" range. That should work well at to about 50yds. The old Rugers are a tough gun. There also the ones that get blowed up the most around here. These hog hunters think they got to put a stick of dynomite in one to make it work. Good luck.
