And I readily admit that's my only real reason for liking it. Nothing is fail-safe, but I trust the old magnum's record with that load. Reliable feeding, looking cool, and less muzzle flip than a .40 are just icing. I wouldn't like it for those reasons alone.
Plus, I usually dislike a middle-of-the-road or split-the-difference approach to most things. I want to be on one side of the fence or the other (never say always, but usually). Were I a revolver affectionado, I would not carry a .41 mag when I could have a .357 or .44.
