Oops, I shot it past 50 yards (52 yards)
Facing away, aimed for spine and got it. Puny cartridge should allow for precise placement.
I want a 629-3 or older, 6" for hunting, 4" for general carry (I can get on fast with a 4" but find the more crude sight radius to be a 50 yard max use thing- for me).
For deer (and groundhogs) I like a .44 better.
And with that, for long D work, 8 3/8" or 9.5"...........makes things a lot easier.
