The kick is so bad it takes at least one second to re-aim that thing. It's a hard weapon to handle.
Maybe I'm thinking of something else, but are you talking about the S&W Chief's Special? Didn't they quit making that revolver?
The reason I ask is because my dad had one, along with a 45 luger revolver, and they were stolen several years ago. I thought about getting him a replacement one, but I was never able to find one.
I'm thinking about getting a handgun personally. I have several rifles (and even a blackpowder) but never been into handguns much. I'll probably get a tazer for the wife (she hates guns) but I want a handgun. Any recommendations (will use for hunting as well)?
