This is not the best picture I have ever taken, I use the shotgun method of photography. This is m S&W Model 58, the finest social revolver ever made! (Or, it would be if they loaded proper ammunition for it).

Funny you should ask as I just took it out last week with my ps90,fiveseven and fired the 3 for the first time.

The reduced load 1400 fps 350gr. JHP, was quite enjoyable. about the same as a 44mag. Now when I stepped up to the 1900fps 325gr, It almost hurt my hand(not my wrist). Kind of like when you hit a rock with a baseball bat. Anybody, and I have personally heard a few, who claim you could break your wrist shooting the stubby, is smoking dope. Granted I am a bigger guy 6'3" 250lbs, but my buddy who is about 180lbs had no trouble. The barrel did rise a little, but nothing to be concerned about leaving sight marks in your forehead. :? Accuracy at 25yds was pretty good as I kept all shots on paper and most within a few inches of the target.

I am considering using it as my conceal carry as the extra weight (5lbs ish) won't bother me. Its just a ***** finding a holster. I figure the shear size would be a hell of a deterent. My saying is "If it breathes, my snubby could kill it" Bear, rhino, cow, squirrel.... It doesn't matter, I predict one shot, one kill!! It just might be hard explaining to a jury why the exit wound is big enough to put your arm through. :lol:

Here are my wheel guns. On top is a S&W 686 Plus, 7 shot 357/38. Next is a S&W 386 PD, 7 shot 357/38. and last but not least is my S&W 340 SC, 5 shot 357/38. The 386PD is going to have some work done and have the conversion for full moon clips.

I'm sure to catch grief about this but I just went and picked up my Taurus 44SS6 .44 mag yesterday...here it is along side my SA XDm 9:



The stock grips a re terrible! To small for my hands and skinny as well, I have a set from Hogue on order (monogrips). It's off today to my gunsmith to get the trigger smoothed out...can't wait to shoot it.

Well....guess I can make fun of myself, the Taurus went back, what a pile of crap! The build was garbage, this fit and finish was terrible and the thing has a cylinder lock problem. I plopped down the extra $185 and got this fella:



.44 Ruger Super Redhawk...build like a freaking tank, should have bought this one in the first place. At first I really didn't like the looks...funny enough it's starting to grow on me though (not sure why).

I guess I look at it this way, the Ruger has amazing grips and included scope mounts, something that would have ran me an extra $75 for the Taurus (grips and mount). Figuring the Ruger was $699, the Taurus $529, adding $75 to the Taurus only puts it some $100 less than the Ruger and that price is WELL worth the better build quality.
