I just joined the club a week or so ago, and have decided that I enjoy being a member to this wonderful club. I am now looking for new grips along with a perfect holster to winter conceal carry mine. I have been looking to get better pictures but it has rained all week.

I wanted to make a 44 magnum club thread for anybody who has one to post their stories, pictures holsters and grips. I just cant seem to get enough of them.

Thanks guys.

I'll play. .44 Mag is one of my favorite cartridges. This here's a S&W 629-1 on which I installed compact grips. It's not comfortable with full power magnum loads, and it's a pussycat with .44 spls. Mostly I shoot intermediate power reloads.

So far, I've not jumped into this caliber, but the 5.5" stainless Super Blackhawk is calling me!!!

The 44 Magnum and the reloader go together like bread and butter. It's the most versatile and accurate handgun caliber there is. I have four of them ranging in barrel lengths of 3,6,10, and a Winchester lever action with a 16 incher.

I can join this club. This picture is of a doe I shot last November on opening day of deer season. I got her from about 40 yards with the revolver pictured, a Smith and Wesson model 629-1, with an 8 3/8" barrel. It wears a Weaver scope, 2x, with Houge grips. The grips have a homemade screw that doubles as a 1 point sling mount, which helps to steady the gun for offhand shooting. I shot this deer with a handload of 270 grain Speer Gold Dot Jacketed Flat Point, over 20 grains of H-110. I got a complete pass-through at 40 yards broadside, (of course), and she went about 50 yards before falling dead. I can't wait to kill another with this gun this season. In the off season, I plink with 240 grain cast lead over unique. It wasn't a trophy buck, but good table meat nevertheless.

My Grandfather started the .44 mag tradition in my family with one of the original Ruger Super Blackhawks. Then my Dad got one. My Dad got me mine for a college graduation present. Guess that makes me third generation .44 magger in my family :)

Put a scope on my Redhawk and took it out for the first time today. Found that I have rifles that are not as accurate as this thing. I was truly amazed. Working up handloads with 240gr EK bullets for comfort and speed. I do not know what powder the red box ammo is loaded with but the 2400 I use is pleasant to shoot.

I am so impressed with this handgun that I will be hunting deer with it in Arkansas this year.

Bad cellphone pic, but I'll take something better later. My Ruger Super Blackhawk, and
I'll also get a pic of my Marlin 1894 too.
We were shooting out at my wife's family farm in GA this weekend, and with the Blazer rounds, the SB was a real pussycat. I'd have felt like plinking if ammo wasn't so pricey. Definitely the first caliber on my list to start reloading.

I have S&W/Hogue .500 Magnum monogrips for real Magnum use - great for absorbing some of the recoil impulse with the resultant padded backstrap. Below is my 6" sporting those grips, a SS Weigand ramp, and a Weaver H2 2 x 28 handgun scope:

this is my first and (currently) only .44 mag but im afraid i have fallen in love with the caliber! :D i had been planning on getting a couple different .357 revolvers (probably still will, someday) but for now i think those plans will be replaced with more .44s. definatly looking real hard at a 5.5" redhawk, maybe a 9.5 super redhawk to set up with a scope specifically for long range hunting. gotta get through the holidays first lol.
