I don't know about the 629, but I really like my 29-2. It's got a bit of a kick with Magnum ammo, so frankly, I shoot mostly 44 special ammo in it. With that it's an easy shooter.
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him would not perish, but have everlasting life.
