Just saw a Rossi 44 mag 2 in barrel for 259. Sounds amazing. Tell me why this is a bad idea.
If you have never shot a .44 mag is such a light revolver, be counting your blessings.
Physics. The smaller the mass, the less energy needed to move it.
It may be okay with .44Special, but the .44 Magnum will get your attention real quick.
In that small of a gun it will kick like a mule. just sayin.
Don't be a sally. Go for it. If you don't you'll just regret it later.
If you want it buy it-
Don't expect to hit much with it
If you have $259 to kick around then go for it. It probably won't be your favorite gun. It's gonna kick like crazy. If you just want a cheap range gun, and don't mind the kick, go for it.
7.62x25 mm handgun yep I said it now go do your research.
Most don't have to research it but WHAT does it have to do with a Rossi 44
Yep yesterday I ate a Turkey sandwich yep I ate it. Now go do your research on sandwiches.
If that's the one, I say go for it. It looks pretty good. Load 'er up with some .44spl and it'll be great.
i think shaker got confused as to what he was doing.
I'll go along with confused
If you want if for self defense, it'll be perfectly OK loaded with some stout .44 special ammo. Plus if you want to impress (or intimidate) yer friends at the range you can take along some .44 mag ammo, but .44 mag in a .44 snubby would be kinda iffy for self defense.
Is it just me, or is the idea of ANY .44 Magnum for self-defense terrifying? If you have maybe three bad guys lined up in tight single file that kind of penetration potential might make sense. But then I once saw a guy at the range shooting a .50 Desert Eagle he swore he carried concealed for protection. Talk about an express ticket to Lawsuit City!
I'm not saying there's no place for .44 Mag. There is, definitely, and the Rossi looks pretty cool. But I'd sure listen to the folks saying to load it with .44 Special, and maybe get a Magnum with at least a four-inch barrel for protection against big, fierce animals like bears and boars.
Yeah, you get a lot of noise, but noise at that level doesn't damage body tissue, except maybe eardrums. Also the recoil can make follow-up shots slow or maybe wildly off target. But you can carry .44 Special ammo in the .44 mag revolver, which is pretty good defensive ammo without the nasty recoil.
