Why You “NEED” A .44 Magnum (It’s really quite simple)

Now, before any of you fans of high capacity 9mm’s get your panties in a bunch, just hear me out for a few minutes.  When we think of a Smith & Wesson .44 magnum, we (almost without exception) think Of Clint Eastwood in his iconic role as Detective “Dirty Harry” Callahan. In fact, it was because of Eastwood’s role, that Smith & Wesson sold a ton of these pistols and since has even achieved a cult-like status among fervent gun owners and collectors.

Over the years, this iconic S&W pistol has had it’s up’s and down’s in it’s sales, but every body I know who own’s a S&W, owns  a .44 Magnum.  Yes, they’re heavy, expensive and the ammo is expensive, but one well placed shot with a .44 magnum will do the job ( and NO ONE can deny that). In fact, I’d say that among my pistol collection, this bad-boy is one of my personal favorites. Anyone STUPID enough to break into my home in the middle of the night (and survive) will agree with me when I say, when you look into the business end of this pistol, you get religion VERY quickly.  And if you’re still not convinced, at least take the time to watch the video below.
