Default New revolver

I was thinking about getting a new rev. handgun and was looking for some opinions. I have a .44 s&w model 29 and love it not only for the look but the feel as well. I was thinking about getting a .45 long cult what do you guys think?

Thinking about some cowboy action shooting?

My $0.02, I would get a .357 mag, so I could use less expensive .38 spl for trigger therapy. Ruger GP100, S&W 686, etc. YMMV

45 LC are cool but expensive to shoot even if you reload. I use a couple of .357 revolvers for CAS. Also have a couple of levers chambered for the same round. That is what I would recommend. But 45 LC is a pretty sweet round and if that's what you want, go for it! For more info on CAS go to: http://www.sassnet.com/

I am not a Cowboy shooter. I do however shoot single action 6 guns. The new Ruger Lipsey 4 5/8" SS .45 Covertable .45 Colt And .45 ACP is a fine handgun. This is the New Flat Top version on a .357 frame and the old XR-3 grip. The warning is on the bottom of the barrel. The chamber throats are all cut .451 and the trigger is a good 3 lbs. The Ruger is very close to that well balance Mdl.P Colt. It is a great off hand revolver. Lipsey only had 500 of these made in SS and 500 blue ones.

Hi Ryandean:

As you already have a large bore, it sounds like you just want another toy to play with. Nothing wrong with that. There's a lot to be said for a good 22 cal revolver. Cheap and fun to shoot, and no reloading. There are tons of them available in both DA & SA styles.

A step up would be a good 38/357 revolver in either DA or SA. I have a GP100 and it is very versatile. Once fired 38 special cases are super cheap to purchase.

You already have a large bore with the 44 Mag. And that can be down loaded to 45 ACP velocities which is what I do with my Readhawk for 99% of my shooting with it. This tames the big Redhawk's recoil down to almost a 22 but still gives me the power of a 45 ACP. Very pleasant to shoot all day long, and still plenty good for defense.

I'm just giving you some food for thought. But if you really want that 45 long colt, then by all means, go for it.

If it were me i'd take a walk on the wild side and try that new S&W Governor,.45LC/.410/.45acp,what's not to love about that?If I wanted a cowboy single action i'd go with a Ruger.

The .45 Colt is a fantastic - and hugely underrated - round. If you buy ammo on-line, it'll be no more expensive than any other large bore. And it'll give you a range of power like no other handgun, from light cowboy loads to higher power than a .44Map +P. And always with less recoil and a larger diameter projectile -- the .45 colt is a true .45 (0.452") whereas the .44 Mag is actually 0.429". That's an important difference if trying to bring down prey or stop and attacker.

In .45 Colt I have: S&W 625 Mountain Gun, S&W Governor (.45Colt, .45acp, .410).460S&W (also chambers .454Casull & .45Colt), and Ruger Alaskan in .454Casull / .45 Colt. Looking for a S&W 25 Mountain Gun.

Plus you can load it with 38 special for target practice which is cheaper
