I've heard/read that the 44 special is an extremely flat-shooting round; this could be important if you "feel threatened" from halfway across the parking lot.

I've not shot the 44 special, myself.

To me it "feels" more like a 45 ACP/Colt than a magnum round.

BTW, my 629 has had a make-over : http://www.firearmstalk.com/forums/f16/make-over-bertha-42114/
