    I pulled the trigger on it, so to speak. I got an S&W Model 24-3 with a 3 inch barrel. It looks like it is basically the Lew Horton, but it was not part of the order. Like it was an over run. It looks basically new.
    I am excited, I guess I will get the dies so I can reload it.
    I wanted something unique and I already have a Redhawk in 44mag. I will let you all know how it goes. Iím hopeful to carry it at least occasionally.

    Congrats.

    Unique for lighter loads and 2400 for some @ss smackers.

    Sweet!

    Easy caliber to load!

    As I said, I prefer .44 Russian and 200 gr bullets loaded to about 750 fps. It's pleasant to shoot but thumps the target.

    For defense another 100 fps is all you need. JHP's, Gold Dots, and XTP's are available.

    Check out GT Bullets. He makes nice, soft LHP's in a few weights.
