You could always use it for hunting there's lots of people that use big bore handguns for hunting as the primary weapon It would be a lot easier than carrying a rifle around and still has enough knockdown power. . It also depends where you live if you live in the woods with brown bears I don't know Alaska or something moose and you come across them often you may want something a little more powerful for the worst-case scenario.


If I had a full-time job and was three years older (21) I would make him an offer on that

I was thinking about looking at them in the Spring with my tax check,not at the moment. I think I've got everything else I need and a 44 automatic is just something I've always wanted to have.I've never even handled 1 and my hands aren't all that big.I'll just have to look at them and decide then.

Picked up my 10/22lazer today.
My next purchase will be a Revolver with a laser
A .357.
Don't know what make yet.
Will be awhile,
have to get over the shock of filling out ALL the paper work.

Shade, check out the S&W Performance Center 327 models. The 327 TRR8 has upper and lower removable picatinny rails and the TR8 has an integral lower rail and a removable top one. Both are 8 shot, cut for moon clips and have excellent trigger jobs. They are on an N frame so they shoot really mildly with .38s.

I'm looking for a small .22 pistol. Beretta 87, 71 come to mind and FEG RL61 would be a plus. Finding any of them is a challenge. A friend of mine picked up an immaculate Beretta 87 this week, and it has inspired me.

Trying to get an exception for the hunter's two max handgun rule. I could try for the exception (the German feds gave me the OK for an AR), or apply for a competition license. Well anyways, I am looking to buy a 44 mag as a replacement for my HK USP .40 during my night hunts. The freaking Russia boars seem to be getting bigger and scarier every year. The only .44 mag I can purchase is a Taurus.

http://www.frankonia.de/waffen/kurzwaffen/revolver/categorylist.html#f_s_kaliber=.44+Mag.&page=0&last Selected=f_s_kaliber

Anybody have luck with the Taurus?

Ruger SR22 would scratch that itch for you also. Small, light, accurate sights and is not fussy about what you feed it.

No personal experience with the Taurus wheel guns. But I've heard stories of long, terrible trigger pulls on an otherwise dependable gun.
