44 is a great round, I agree with you on getting that. I would get one in 454 as well, just to have one haha. The different loadings for it are great. But not in a 2 inch barrel......

It would be the old black and white cowboy movies hands down, let me explain!

Those dudes knew how to get more "bang" out of their buck from their revolvers ammunition while increasing ammo performance and accuracy. We today in the modern age would do well to improve our performance to the standards of our cowboy ancestors.

Back in the day, to increase ballistic performance and accuracy traveling 40 MPH on horse back they "slung" their revolvers forward extremely fast toward their intended targets with great success!

If your not a history gun slinging exhibition buff, here's the finer points.

On horse back you gain an additional 40 MPH to the velocity of the projectile, that's why they always shot at the horses full speed and not a trot or gallop.

They also added allot of additional projectile velocity by the sling. Properly done as witnessed in many Roy Rogers / Lone Ranger black & whites... The arm (usually the right one) is lifted very high at the 12 o'clock position with revolver in hand. Then with a blur of a Bob Gibson fastball, it is flung forward to the POA, right before the POA is reached the centrifugal force generated retracts the index finger and engages the trigger press with highly accurate results.

If not for this ingenious technique, I doubt the West would have ever been won, therefore you and I probably wouldn't have been born and be here talking about how our forefathers were better shots than you and I and how we have a debt to old black & white cowboy movies.

So there you have it, history in a nut shell.

Dirty Harry was pretty good as far as making the revolvers look good is concerned, but he said he loads his Model 29 with "light specials", then fires at a bad guy and sends him flying thru the wall. Realism is not a strong point there.
I kinda liked "Quigley Down Under", 'cuz he says "I don't have much use for revolvers", then wastes the BG. Then he says, "I said I don't have much use for a revolver. I never said I don't know how to use one". But then Quigley wasn't using a DA, so "never mind". But Krazy Kora was hot.

One seriously stupid use of a revolver was in the old "Barnaby (Barnababy) Jones flicks. One time a BG was shooting at Barnababy from about 100 yards away and missing, so Barnababy whipped out his snub-nose .38 from his coat pocket in a fast draw, fires immediately from the hip, and shoots the gun outta the BG's hand at 100 yards. Maybe his gun fired little Sidewinder missiles, or some kinda "meat-seeking" missile.
