Yeah, I'm still looking for some .44 special ammo, but it's on hold for now. Some stuff has come up so I'll have to just sit tight for a bit.

Spittinfire, that is just an awesome find.

It just amazes me that people buy such a fine revolver and then just put it away and probably never fire it, or fire it once and put it away for years. (an antique or true collectable I can understand-but that is a really fine shooting gun).... I shake my head in disdain for them......and then I smile when I hear that someone found it as a bargain and bought it and will shoot it, appreciate it, and take care of it. I am glad that it will now be properly used and appreciated.

As much as I like my Blackhawk I would have been on that Smith like white on rice!

Great snag spit!

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Have no fear, my friend. I have plans for this pistol and if nothing changes it will spend some time at the range and in the woods.

629-1's go from about 450.00 to about 590.00 these days so I'd say you did good. I have a large collection of 44 Magnums, and I love tham all. One of my all-time favorites is my 629-6 Classic.

You just can't go wrong with Smith & Wesson.

My collection includes:

Ruger Vaquero 44 Mag
Ruger Bisley 44 Mag
Ruger Redhawk 44 Mag
S&W 629-6 Performance Center Hunter 44 Mag
S&W 629-6 Classic 44 Mag
S&W 329PD Airlite 44 Mag

Congrats Spit, it must be a sweet Ruger to make you pass on that Smith.
