it's a dang good price if you have need of it or if was of use to you. but a 2.5" barreled 44 Mag. is not exactly a range gun! but it would make a bear stand up and take notice! if you have no real need for it, then IMO, it would be money wasted, because it would probably spend more time in a gun safe.
personally myself i shy away from guns that i would not use on regular basis or have a particular need for them, irregardless of the price. much better to spend the money on something that would be used and enjoyed.
