Revolver?
 
I have decided on a Colt Gold Cup National Match as my next handgun purchase, however, I feel that everyone should one at least one revolver.

The issue I'm having in my decision for revolvers is that I already own a 500 S&W handi-rifle and I don't know if I want buy the 500 revolver or a 44 mag. I wanted to try and keep the different calibers to a minimum (I have .22lr, .22 mag, 12 gauge, 30-30, 270, .338 win mag, 7.62x39, 500 S&W, .45, and 10mm) but a 44 mag would be a more practical revolver.

So basically I'm looking for some input to help the future decision I'll have to make between limiting calibers versus practicality of the said calibers themselves.

I think you're past "keeping the calibers to a minimum".

If the revolver is just for a hooting and not SD, why not find a nice .22 ? It will be cheap and fun to shoot.

You're in this deep already, what's one more mouth to feed? :D

.44 gets my .02

I already have an m&p22 to go plinking with and I wanted a revolver with some bang. Just haven't decided how much bang.

I know I know haha I decided to keep it to a minimum a little late but I guess it wouldn't be that bad since .44 is cheaper than 500 and more plentiful around me.

S&W 686 Plus in 357 Magnum. Lots of bang but not the bulk of the 44 Magnum.

IMHO, no collection is complete w/o a 4" .357 Magnum revolver. S&W 65, 66, 686. Ruger GP-100 or the older but still worthwhile "Six" series - Speed Six, Security Six.

You need a 357.

If you want to keep the number of calibers to a minimum, consider a revolver in either .45 or 10mm.

The S&W x25s are fantastic revolvers, I have them 625 Mountain Gun (.45Colt), 625JM & 325 Night Guard (both .45acp & .45Auto Rim), and Governor (.45Colt, .45acp & .410 but not Auto Rim). The .45Colt can have the cyl cut to allow both Colt and acp for about $100. The .45acp is my all around favorite caliber, having it in these revolvers plus 4 1911s. The .45Colt is perhaps the most versatile ctg and can be loaded hot to exceed .44Mag+P energies. I have it in the Mtn Gun and Governor plus .460xvr and Ruger Alaskan .454Casull/.45Colt (the .454Casull is a fantastic caliber if you want serious power.)

The S&W 610 is another excellent option. Chambers .40S&W and 10mm, giving you nearly the horsepower of a .44mag in the 10mm and a very manageable .40S&W for range work.
