I'm a big fan of short barreled big bore handguns. Mostly because I'm a fan of the .44 and .45ACP ballistics.
I have carried a 3" 629 a lot and shot the shit out of them even more. I had one that I got from Hortons as a special run that after a thousand rounds the barrel started unscrewing (so much for pinned barrels).
That being said let me tell you what I know about 3" and 2 1/2" 44 mags. First of all, technically a 3" anything would be considered a snubnose. You can call them snubnose but they are big fucking guns. On your hip or in your hand, you know they are there. As big as they are, mine disappears in a k frame IWB holster. Good gun leather makes all the difference.
Second, being the mass is there, non ported ones are a pleasure to shoot. Really alot more hype than reality. I admit I reload to 1000 fps but that is still above 44 special levels.
Third, on the fluted cylinder, I have heard that the unfluted cylinders are heavier to tame recoil, stronger because of added metal. I got it because it looks cool.

If you want to ccw a big bore revolver and want to dream I have shot a five shot, 3" 44 special built on a S&W K-frame that was pretty cool. It was a mix of stainless and blue parts so it looked special to boot.

As a plinker the 5'2" chickee poo is handling it just fine.


Home Defense duty loaded with glaser safety slugs, speedloaders loaded with Black Talons replaces that tacky little pamplet in the bottom drawer.


Guns make great photo subjects

Well done Steve.

I don't know if you are saying I am wrong(?) or applauding me for speaking the truth??? But we do not have to measure any pressure to prove that an unfluted cylinder DOES NOT make an S&W Model (6)29 any stronger..... The bolt stops are cut directly over the chambers in an S&W N-frame and this is the thinnest/weakest link in the S&W N-frame cylinder, whether it be fluted or unfluted..... And I will throw another "monkey wrench into the whole works....there is a certain amount of metallurgical "proof" (read theory), that fluted cylinders may be stronger in that they allow for a certain amount of "stretch" as opposed to "pure resistance" at peak chamber pressures.... Even if true, it wouldn't make a bit of difference in an S&W N-frame, as they will "let go" at the cylinder bolt stops, long before the flutes would come into play. Regards, Steve

My dad didn't really know that much about the unfluted cylinders. He said he thought it was somebody being lazy at the factory
