    I admire companies like that too. The problem is that Taurus isn't one of them

    They’re too heavy and big to carry

    I’ve heard S&W’s new guns are supposed to be built stronger, cylinder has a double lock up, sleeved barrel is supposed to add something, heck I don’t know

    I sorta liked the older pinned barrels, but I never had an issue with a S&W not handling 44 mag ammo that I loaded. Never bought Underwood ammo. If I wanted more than the .44 was able to give I used the .454.
    Seems this thread is drifting a bit from origin...and I am part of the drift! :eek:

    Have fun firing 460 smith mag out of that short a barrel- that level of torque won’t exactly be fun

    Well, obviously we disagree. I consider Taurus to be as good as a S&W.

    I am still waiting, the 942 22 WMR is still not available. It will be a great day when I finally get a shipping notification.

    The last time I shot one of those...after my hand stopped hurting...I thought maybe "too much of a good thing." :D

    For some reason I just can't seem to be impressed by the S&W500

    I might be one of the very first in the country to get one.
