H&R 44 American Bulldog

Post by wjbarricklow » Sun Sep 25, 2011 1:16 pm

I'm sure you've all seen these old 44 revolvers. My question is why did they die out? With all the advances in metallurgy in the last 100 years, why can't we get a moderate or low velocity five shot 44 revolver roughly the size of a J-frame or detective special, like they had back then?
...and they think I'm compensating for something?

In the days of the old west a 6 shooter was as common as cell phones are today and just annoying if they go off in a theater.

Why doesn't the Charter Bulldog or the Taurus 445 meet you needs?
