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.
Dead Bears, the only good kind.

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

BTW, my 629 has had a make-over :

The only 357 magnum to me is the Ruger Security Six!!
