My comment about the S&W X frame is one of those .... maybe comments. I have still yet to find or discover a reason, why I need one here in Montana. The .44 Magnum covers all our needs
for hunting with a handgun. The weight of the .500 Magnum is much heavier than any 629 offered.
But I do have one .500 Magnum that I like, and I'm sure you have already seen the BarBQue that has been shown around the net.
That truly is a Smith & Wesson Man's grill.
I truly really like the .44 Magnum and don't find I need any other caliber.
