Met a guy at the range one day that had a lightweight 44, Struck up a conversation with him while he was trying to bring the feeling back to his hand. He was shooting 300 gr Buffalo Bores and was getting ready to use it on bears. He was telling me that it always shot a little low and left. So, I'm thinking that he's developed a buck anticipating the recoil. Having a mdl 29 of my own, I asked him if I could take a couple of shots to verify it. My first shot hurt like a mother, and was out a little @ 9 o'clock. I looked at my hand, and there was a slight abrasion on the webbing. I didn't want to take another shot, but felt I should just to verify the first one. My second one landed right next to the first. This one hurt worse than the first. Looking at my hand, showed a split in the webbing, and was actively bleeding. We then discussed the difference between carrying a light gun that you can't hit squat with vs. a heavier but more accurate one. He was gracious enough to give me his empty brass. Minor consolation for a wound that took weeks to heal.

A little "restoration" project that I just acquired - Rossi Model 69, .32 S&W Long. It's a copy of the S&W Post WWII Hand Ejector of the same caliber. Fortunately, hammer and trigger return springs for the S&W J frames will fit the Rossi. The rest is cosmetic cleanup.

One of my favorite Big Bore snubs - S&W 396NG Night Guard. This old scadium framed gem is chambered in 44 Special. I never feel under gunned with this L-Frame.

I’ve bought and sold/traded off A BUNCH of guns in my life, and I have almost no regrets letting them go. However, I had a pre lock 396 with a 3” barrel, and I kick myself every day for getting rid of that one. I still have my dies and components for loading for that gun.:sick:
