And a Ruger SP101 because a no rust stainless compact .357 is always useful if you spend any time outdoors.

Ok that's 2 guns and 2 more mouths to feed but since when was our addiction supposed to make sence?

On a funny note...
I sold an XD .45 yesterday and my wife said GREAT, what are we going to do with the money?

When I told her I had my eye on a different pistol she said...Tack, you've only got TWO HANDS! How many guns do you need?

I said Baby, you've only got two feet but that does not seem to keep your shoes from multiplying.

Tack

I agree completely about a dirty Harry gun, an I think I've decided on a .44 because the 500 is pretty impractical to shoot frequently.

I think I'm going to have to keep that one in mind. That was an excellent point.

I have a 629. That is a stainless 44 mag Smith & Wesson. I like the 4 inch barrel. It is not as accurate as a 6 inch. But I carry it sometimes. The 4 inch hides easily under a normal jacket. I also have a 586 in .357. But there is just something about a .44. Anybody that owns one knows what I am talking about.

I agree 100%. My 629 is my absolute favorite gun even though I only shoot it once or twice a year.

.44s and .45s are worthwhile using and packing as described above. Looking at the long list of pistol calibers, I wondered where the .357 was?? .38/.357 is the spine of any "collection" of working handguns- found everywhere in many variations with all kinds of ammo available. Inexpensive ammo available and widely handloaded with simple tools.

My old well worn 29-2 S&W .44 has been with me for over 40 years. The older Smiths make better holster guns.

+1 on that Tack!

Look for a vintage S&W. There is something about a vintage Smith wheel gun in the N or K frame that sends piss-quivers up my spine. Like a vintage M1911A1, the history seems to morph from the ageless stocks and provide the shooter with a glimpse of brilliance from the giants who's shoulders we walk on. (Elmer Keith, Jack Weaver, Col. Charles "Boots" Askins, Thell Reed, Jerry Miculek to name a few.)



My M29-2 (circa 1980)

And/or



My M19-3 (circa 1970)

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!
