    I know what I want. I want a normal size gun with a lot of power, just for fun.

    NO comp or ported barrel. And more power than the 10mm. I think the 45 Super is pretty close to the 10mm.
    So, I think that only leaves the LAR grizzly which is no longer produced.
    Desert Eagle and Wildey are both huge. And the 460 Rowland is strictly a comped affair.
    Have I missed anything?

    Feel free to chime in, I'm just bouncing around ideas.

    A friend of mine has an AMT 45 win mag thats very fun to shoot. I believe he had it ported though.

    How did you like the trigger on that? I assume it is a single action?
    It's a shame they don't make them anymore.

    Very nice trigger from what I remember(S/A). Lots of power too! He paid $600 I believe and had a gunsmith to drill a few ports in the barrel, replace a few springs. Very nice looking gun. Pretty cool for woods carry.:cool:

    "Normal size" and "lots of power" are rather ambiguous qualities and likely mutually exclusive.

    ...were you actually under the delusion that a "normal sized" handgun chambered in a caliber that is abnormally large & powerful for normal sized handguns would actually be affordable???

    :rofl:

    Clearly.

    I guess it's made of magic metal.

    Probably comes in a cardboard box, though.

    I'd say pull you head out the sand and be satisfied with a 10mm pistol, more than enough power for what needs to be shot. If you feel the need for that much power go get a rifle, big bore hand gun to satifiy your urges for power.

    Real world semi autos like the 10mm pack quite a punch, it is what I carry and I don't feel the need for more power inside a 100yards.

    How about the 44MAG 'AUTOMAG' Dirty Harry's gun in the later movie's

    I;m pretty sure I know a place that has one. Can't remember the price...I believe it was around a $1000 NIB Chromed too, just like Harry's

    The thing I don't like about revolvers is the horrendous blast that comes out at the cylinder gap.
    I couple years back I had been carrying my 10mm for quite a while. Had done lots of cool stuff with it. Killed foxes, deer, shot competition, all kinds of stuff. But I decided to try a Smith 41 mag. So I got one, and loaded up some mid range ammo that roughly duplicated the top end stuff in my 10mm. I shot it for a while and liked it a lot. Then I realized at some point I was going to have to shoot this thing without hearing protection eventually, when dogs are attacking my livestock I'm not walking back to the house for ear plugs.
    I took it out back and fired ONE shot with no protection. It about wiped my ears off my head. I've never done that again. My 10mm auto never caused such noise to hit me.
    Never again. No more revolvers for me.

    I've never put my hands on an automag. But I would honestly be afraid to fire one. Because if something broke or wore out, there are not replacement parts to be had. I'd look at them if they still made them.

    I read about the 30 carbine a long time ago. I had thought they said they were only good for varmint hunting, very light bullets going moderately fast. It was a long time ago.

    at 100 yards or so, yes. at handgun ranges of 75 feet or less, does a bit better.
