S&W 340 .347...now that's getting bit and drawing blood! I've had red marks from my PPK's slide, but I never bled like this! Looks like it would hurt!

That's hamburger!!

Too light a revolver with too heavy a load ..... was it not Einstein who said for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction! Old Albert forgot to mention that can be bloody business!!!

Edward Newton was Isaac's idiot brother. He's the one who decided that firing full-house .357 Magnum loads out of a 12 ounce revolver was a good idea.

When firing my 638, I take a "high thumb" hold on the revolver. I don't know if one could get away with that when shooting an ultra-lightweight with full house magnum ammo. It might not be possible to control, or even hold on to the revolver with such a hold.

I'll see your wimpy .357 mag and raise you to the ULTIMATE in stupidity...the S&W Model 329 in .44 MAGNUM!!!!



Yep...no punishment holding a 26 ounce handgun (that's only 10 ounces over a pound!) and firing full power .44 mag loads through it.:rolleyes: And the excuse given for those who buy this sick joke....

"You can wear it on your hip all day and hardly notice it's there".

LOL...yeah right...until (God forbid) you actually have to SHOOT this thing. You will get one shot off and the gun will probably end up pointing at the sky (if it doesn't fall to the ground) and you will be jumping around screaming in pain. I fired full power loads in a Model 629 4 inch and with Pachmayr rubber grips I was still in a good deal of pain. It got so bad I was "counting down" the number of rounds left before I was finally done and could quit the torture.
