What next, 44 magnum or .50 AE isn't overkill either? That's game caliber. I'm not going to dispute that it's effective, clearly it is if it can take down bears and other large dangerous game, but...

That's just the thing though, "less effective"? I'm not saying I'd take a .22 instead to preserve hearing, but I wouldn't say a 357 magnum is more effective so much as it's overkill. To me the magnum...

Yeah, I don't know why someone would think earplugs + earmuffs wouldn't give you more reduction. I know it's not going to add up, but I've tried shooting at indoor ranges with just my Sordins on and...

I've seen it lock up on people at the range. The odds may be very unlikely on it happening, but all the same I'd rather not have an extra point of failure especially considering how useless the lock...

I'm not in a rush, but the problem with a new one is that terrible lock. It really makes no sense, and while it can be disabled I don't like messing with any factory installed safety mechanisms....

What version of 629 is this?

I have a co-worker who's selling a pre-lock 629 with 4" barrel. I already looked at in person once and forgot to check, I don't want to ask again because it would depend on which -# 629 he has and...

Oh I came so close today. Two gorgeous S&W 44 mag revolvers at the gun store, one was a 6" 629 Classic with rubber grip, brand new, $849. The other was a little snub nose 3" 629 with a real nice...

I went by a Walmart just to get an idea on ammo price and availability. Couldn't find any 44 special, but I found a few boxes of 44 magnum (50 count). $40-$45, ouch. I've been paying between $28-$40...

Interesting, any idea why this occurred? Is it that the 357 round is lighter and goes faster and thus goes a bit further than the bigger 44 round? Also are you talking 44 mag or special?

Thanks for this, I tend to "go to" using over penetration when I think what I should say is if I miss and then it goes through the wall behind them. The only stuff I'd have a more legit concern about...

Thanks for the advice everyone, I realize now what I shot was a Ruger Super Redhawk 7.5 at the range. I'll be going back to shoot it again and will shoot it first rather than last this time so I...

44 Mag Recommendations

So I've kind of had a desire to own a big bad revolver for some time. I already have a 45 ACP Ruger 1911 which would be my carry piece if/when I carry, but I want something with a little more wow and...

Thanks for the opinions so far, found out it is a Gen 3 LE trade-in used for annual certifications (not an officer's carry piece). It has night sights, two 17 rd mags, and a 30 rd mag. I know people...

What's a Glock 17 worth?

Hey there Glock fans, I've had someone offer me a Glock 17 in trade for something I'm selling. I have a good grasp of the true worth of what I have, but wanted to know what a G17 is bringing these...

Seems like my last reassembly might have fixed it. I've cycled a dozen rounds and only had this problem happen three times now. This couldn't be related to any other issue like with how I rack the...

It was just a field strip, didn't get any further than that. I can take a picture of it completely apart if that helps more, I've taken it apart and put it back probably 3 times now hoping one of...

Not chambering rounds properly

So this is the first time I have field stripped my 1911 today. Actually a veteran 1911 owner did it for me, and even applied lubricant to the spots where they needed to be. I went home, and I've now...

Thanks guys, I am not totally opposed to the plastic - just afraid it would leave lots of scuff marks on the finish. If there are ones with a soft lining on the inside to prevent this, then I'm all...

Sorry, I rented the G19 at the range. Most of the guns I've shot have been range rentals, since that's the best way I've had to familiarize myself with them. I bought the 1911 based on many factors...

Haven't tried any other mags, these are the factory Ruger metal mags so I'm a bit surprised that they would be the problem since it's what they shipped with the gun. I'd still like to try more break...
