    IDK but I wouldn't want to be on the receiving end of a .44 mag

    Long as he diddnt get 6 rounds of full house 180 grain in your chest! That’s an impressive feat.

    Of course he wouldn't. I am not stupid. Despite grandpa gunslinger's odd little fantasies, people don't slowly walk up to you and tell you they are going to knock your ass out to rob you. And anyway, it's more likely I'll be the one acting in self defense, when he has a little hissy and reaches for his hip cannon.

    yep, one quick swing... grandpa's brains on the wall, all his guns in my pockets.

    It's a great self-defense round in a short-barreled S&W, but the limited capacity of most revolver's cylinders make them a bad choice. I wouldn't want to get shot at while I was trying to reload.

    Glock 19 with 15 in the mag, one in the chamber, and two spare magazines is a better choice.

    I would pay your air fair to see that. That guy most likely you could pull it off, he is a trickshooter, but some of those old farts wouldn’t shoot you for your attempt, but they would rape your butt with the bat.
