Is it just me, or is the idea of ANY .44 Magnum for self-defense terrifying? If you have maybe three bad guys lined up in tight single file that kind of penetration potential might make sense. But then I once saw a guy at the range shooting a .50 Desert Eagle he swore he carried concealed for protection. Talk about an express ticket to Lawsuit City!
I'm not saying there's no place for .44 Mag. There is, definitely, and the Rossi looks pretty cool. But I'd sure listen to the folks saying to load it with .44 Special, and maybe get a Magnum with at least a four-inch barrel for protection against big, fierce animals like bears and boars.
