I was just wondering what would be a good revolver for the hands of a youth. i can kinda shoot a 12 gauge but pistols are a different scenario. please help me, im looking for something that is still bad ass dirty harry smith and Wesson stuff.

A 44 magnum for someone your age Im assuming you are a teenager is just to much gun. If you can afford it buy a 357 magnum with a 5 or six inch barrel and shoot 38 specials out of it. On days you want to be a bad ass you can shoot 357 magnums out of it. I paid about 500 dollars for my ruger gp 100 in 357 magnum and I just really enjoy this gun.

I have a ruger sp101. It might be something you would like...only problem is if your under 21 you might have a hard time obtaining a handgun.

Agreed, my father has the SP101 great little gun and the GP ones are great as well, they shoot forever, look great in stainless, are well priced and did i mention, shoot forever?

Welcome to the forum!
We have a section for "Introductions" and your input there would be appreciated.

The type of firearm you are looking for (your description of the firearm you want makes you sound like a wanna-be, by the way) is often found used.
Some believe they have the gonads for a .44 mag and find out that they are better suited by a .22lr to start with. So they fire maybe 6 rounds of the .44 and then get rid of the gun.

I have both and would suggest a .357mag. It's cheaper to shoot using .38spl for practice and has more than adequate power using .357mag. for hunting or SD. The .44mag is ill-mannered, (forget quick second shot target acquisition), and expensive to shoot, even using .44spl. That said, if size really matters, go for the .44mag.

Self defense or cool looking?

Used service six or security six (ruger) are great guns. And 4" barrels are good.
