    Difference between MK1 and MKII.

    Try to eliminate the word "need" from your gun vocabulary, you'll be happier.

    Love that fluted barrel ! I hope it makes the gun a bit muzzle heavy,I have never held one.

    Can You Handle The .44 Magnum?

    I like to shoot a cylinder full of full house loads out of my 2 3/4" Redhawk about once a year. I figure that's enough to prove what a manly man I am!

    Revolver for MIL

    Good thing I have a strong heart. It made it clear to me that it would discourage any dog or human from bothering me. It's a good alternative for anything other than a gun fight.

    Revolver for MIL

    You might consider a stun gun. I quit carrying a sidearm when I dog walk, and carry a zapper now. Cheap on eBay. I tried it on myself,and wished I hadn't.

    Where are the collectors?

    This is the most thought provoking thread I have read in a long time. Many of the comments and suggestions apply to me . Am I delusional about the value of my firearms to : collectors : the general public : my family : myself ???

    How about a MK II “snubbie?”

    I wonder if the pressure pulse is affected, compromising reliable cycling? Needs a lighter mainspring?
