looking for
 
I'm looking for a stub nose revolver in 45-70 for concealed and carry any one know where I can get one?

Why 45-70? Kind of an overpowered round for a snub nose. Why not .357 magnum or .44?

I agree with Doc, a .357 would be adequate. Add to that you can practice with .38's and it is a winner!!

Thanks dune, I'd think the muzzle rise and recoil from a 45-70 would be a little much to handle in a small platformed snubbie.

Even if you could find a snubbie in .45-70, the gun itself would be so big and heavy it wouldn't be good for concealed carry... Imagine carrying around a .500S&W snubnose, that big of a gun with a cylinder as long as the one on a Taurus Judge:eek:

If you feel you must have something excessively powerful for a carry gun, why not look at a Taurus Raging Bull in .454 Casull?

Physics, the one course I hated.
For every action, there is a reaction.
It takes more energy to get a heavy object in motion than it does for a light object.
The .357 Magnum is still a round that is compared to when talking stopping power.

Are we serious here? This thread is obviously a joke. C'mon now. . . .:rolleyes:

Why would anyone want a revolver with a barrel shorter than the cylinder? Look at the Smith .500 &.460 with 2 3/4" barrels. What's the point?

Just get a .460 S&W or .454 Casull,they are both .458 cal like the 45-70,and I believe both guns will also shoot .45 long colt ammo too.
