Finally go my revolver and lever gun in. So much different then a 9 45 or even the 10 with stiff loads. the full power 44mag was the first time i went whoa and actually felt the recoil lol and this is with a 6 inch stainless model (seen miculek talking about the scandium 4 inch HECK NO!) lockup is tight, 5/6 cylinders were .004 gap and one was .005. pulled the side plate off (screws have never been touched) and checked the interals, will grab a spring tool so i can pull it out and give it a good cleaning i doubt it has ever been opened.

Also grabbed some 5 star reloaders with a stand in a custom black with red blood splatter for grins.







and just cause its a matching 44mag my new henry all weather in 44 mag. PEW PEW PEW

Nice setup brother!

When you head back East, don't discount either of those in the woods for deer, or hogs if the opportunity presents itself.

My friend had health issues and can't do long guns. He does the 460 for deer and hogs. It rocks. The recoil isn't too bad, considering.

Hope you get a chance to try it.

My wife loved shooting my 6" 629, even with 300 grain hog busters in it, she wasn't recoil sensitive at all.

Oldest brother has a pair of 2 inch X frames, a 460 and a 500 mag, he's not recoil sensitive either, but I refuse to shoot either of them! Or my Dad's Bond Arms derringer in 45-70.

I like my wrists the way they came, unbroken, thank you!

But my 629 is a pleasure to shoot. And if you stuff it with mild .44 specials, it's really easy to burn through a couple of hundred in an outing with no ill effects.

Nice additions Gixxer!

Nice trail gun too!

44 special is a great idea to get more enjoyment out of it!

that was my plan, with the long travel periods i will bank a bit of cash and probably book a nice hog hunt or finally take my GF's godfather up on a hunt up in the wilds of alaska. the revolver will be my go to in both those.

I think you'll have more fun with the Henry. Probably some decent recoil but not going to blow your shoulder out.
