    I can't believe I didn't post some .44 holes next to some .38 holes.

    Friend of mine has a Taurus 450 (45 Long Colt), it isn't bad to shoot, lots of power from that cartridge. Handloaders could brew anything from mild to wild for it.

    It is a discontinued model now, but if you can find a nice used one...you would certainly have a well made and powerful revolver.

    My cutdown 1917 is lighter than a similar sized K or L frame with underlug. I think it has something to do with the big holes in it.:)

    What SharpsDressedMan said. Light carry, big boom.

    This Ruger .44 Special Sheriff's Model has just a slightly longer barrel, and a similar holster by Sparks. [​IMG][/URL][/IMG][​IMG][/URL][/IMG]

    It's easy. First, use a gun belt that will hold up the gun and not allow it to flop back. Second, a holster with lots of forward cant will reduce printing. Finally, the stocks should not extend too far below the bottom of the frame. Don't use rubber grips; checkered wood stocks won't rub against the body and don't "grab" clothing. Reloads are carried in Safariland COMP loaders in #371 Safariland holders.

    I double the choice of the Colt Lawman .357 snubbie. Its like a M80 going off in front of you but its controllable.

    What, that little pea shooter? :evil:

    That is a 22-4 with the ruined OEM barrel removed, and a 2" Stainless .45 ACP barrel and Unfluted .45 ACP cylinder fit. Ball detent assembly installed for proper lockup. That was a PITA to track down the correct Company. I had Dave at Defensive Creations in Alliance, OH put her together after I tracked down the parts. I did not have him do any outside blending work, though.

    She is as tight as a drum. I think he consulted with the gunsmith over at SDM Fab. If you handle it, it's pretty darn kool.

    A sincere thank you. On another note, I am thinking about having Dave hook me up with an AMD-65 like the one on his website (http://www.defensivecreations.com). I handled that exact gun, pretty darn sweet. Finally tracked down a pristine base gun for it. Or maybe a Delta Elite 10mm if I find a worthy base gun….God, I am ill! :evil:

    Anyway, don't want to sidetrack this thread.

    The L framed 242 and 296 are plenty light but rather bulky, the kydex holster I have for them is still bulky so these clip draws eliminate the holster and go a long way toward comfort and concealment.

    BTW, the .38/.357 snubbies that have been posted are only "large bore" in the alternate universe their owners must be living in; they aren't in this one.

    I looked a long time for this combination of Pug, stainless and factory bobbed hammer. It just looks right.

    Well if a 3 inch is a snub...

    [​IMG]

    The one on the right is a 625-2 .45 ACP.

    With .45 ACP ammo is shoots one hole groups at 10 yards.

    And it also handles .45 Supers fine.
