How viable is it to carry a 44 Magnum everyday? Posted on May 9, 2023 by PrepHole Contributor How viable is it to carry a 44 Magnum everyday?
Very if you're not a pussy
Plenty of people in Alaska do it everyday.
None. If you need to carry a firearm every day it's time to get some marketable skills and move somewhere safe.
Welding and pipefitting aren’t high paying, marketable skills? You fucking retard.
Well then weld and "pipefit" (is this code for taking a dick up your ass?) somewhere where you're safe without a gun. If it comes to a shootout it doesn't matter if you're right or wrong, you die often. Better be somewhere with no shootouts.
The fuck are you that you’re getting into gun fights with bears you drooling retard?
You must live in SanFran because you’ve got dick on your brain 24/7.
people get shot everywhere on the planet retard. and you'll lose 100% of gunfights that you don't bring a gun to.
>you'll lose 100% of gunfights that you don't bring a gun to.
There was a parking attendant in New York, guy ran up and shot him in the stomach and he simply took the gun off the dude and shot him back
Yes, but not every thug will be courteous enough to use 9mm.
You think 45 aarp is going to do any better?
.357 Chad would
I'm not saying that I would prefer to get shot by a bear blaster. I just don't think it's likely to encounter either one in the hands of an evildoer. They're both cartridges for turbo autists, like me. I own a 357 mag revolver.
I'm more of a centimetre guy but .45 Automatic Coon Penetrator would be pretty good too if you could get a double stack mag that wasn't the size of a fucking coke bottle.
also I'm totally stealing the .45 AARP bit. It was e-boing IRL for a solid minute.
I'm curious as to what manly and based job you do.
>manly and based
Sounds like you're insecure about making 34k a year.
Yeah ok sure, now tell me what is it that you do?
Operations manager for a vegas casino.
Ah so a colossal gay.
The unarmed are simply not human.
>move somewhere safe.
You are a blind, blubbering, pants on head, shit eating retard. Nowhere is "safe". The police will not be there to protect you when something or someone goes bump in the night. Freedom isn't safe. It's dangerous. It's awful. It's abused by scumbags to take advantage of the vulnerable. It is also the least worst way to live, and I will defend it. Every bitch ass shit like you that complains about "safe" doesn't deserve to live free. You can be free or you can be safe but you don't get to be both. And if you're willing to give up your freedom to be safe you'd do us all a favor by hanging yourself.
he's another gay /int/ war tourist.
To be fair your risks of experiencing random violence and other criminal activity is inversely proportional to the amount of morons living nearby.
Ha ha I am an idiot, I meant directly proportional.
>PLEASE DO TERRORISM ALREADY!
>Nowhere is safe
I go through your fridge while you're sleeping.
Can u take it easy on the milk? Got my kid this week and she loves that shit. Ill pick up some apple pie for you on payday
I'm rolling down Rodeo with a shotgun, you centrist WASP turd
>a big shot banker like me doesn't ACK
Why do you think the elite want to ban guns?
Dude looks like that Sargon guy
Man if you have the lawful ability why the hell not
Because if someone gets the lawful ability to carry guns that means all kind of scum and retards get the lawful ability to carry guns and the risk of them being empowered to shoot you is by far bigger than you getting saved by your fucking fuddpiece?
Basically telling me to live somewhere where i can get a gun so i can protect myself with a gun from all the people who get guns by this retard policy is not far removed from telling me to go to Bakhmut so i can get a tank to protect me from all the Russians who might come with a tank after me.
I'd rather face no tanks and no guns in my daily life, thanks.
Inb4 what if someone gets an illegal gun - that's the point of strict gun bans, so illegal guns become difficult to get as well.
just admit you only came here because of ukraine you worthless gay
I literally did. Suck my dick about it. From what I've gathered Ukraine increased the quality of discussions massively here.
>Because if someone gets the lawful ability to carry guns that means all kind of scum and retards get the lawful ability to carry guns and the risk of them being empowered to shoot you is by far bigger than you getting saved by your fucking fuddpiece?
nope, criminals are less likely to rob you if you have a piece, ,you can check the numerous studies done on this, feel free to take the L and jump off your nearest pier lol.
>so illegal guns become difficult to get as well.
Man, that's genius! We should do that with stuff like cocain and heroin! Ooo! And it should be totally illegal to rape, kill, and rob! That would stop people from having and doing those things! Society would be better!
Fucking mongoloid retard.
By definition, laws don't stop criminals from doing the things they do. They don't get their guns legally. They get other people to buy them, or they steal them. Gun bans and every other form of gun control have absolutely no effect on how well armed the criminals are. They only affect how well armed law abiding citizens are. Shinzo Abe was murdered with a gun in a country where no one other than the military and police may purchase a handgun or a rifle. You cannot stop criminals from having and using guns. You CAN allow law abiding citizens to also have guns so that they have the tools with which to defend themselves in a free society. Your 'no guns' world is a pipe dream that does not and will not exist.
The logic/idea that "some people just shouldn't have guns because they're bad so nobody should have guns." is just... goddamn I don't have the words to succinctly encapsulate the level of retardation there.
"Some people can't be trusted to drive, nobody should drive."
"Some people can't be trusted to drink, nobody should be allowed to drink."
"Some people can't be trusted around children, nobody should be alone with children."
Far more lives are saved by guns than taken by guns. Take guns from law abiding citizens and only criminals have guns? Yeah, great idea asshole.
Again, do the world a favor and have a nice day.
Is this bait or are you really this much of a bitch?
I'd live in the fucking Wold West if it were possible.
Gunfights are fun, I've been in a few (former zogbot) and anyone who tells you that they are NOT fun is either lying to avoid looking crazy or he's a pussy.
No (you) for you, since you're such a bitch-made gay.
Post your gun or get the fuck out gay
As viable as every other carry gun. You'll never shoot it anyway, just live out your Dirty Harry fantasy.
If you can carry it comfortably and consistently no problem at all
If your only criterion is "have it on you with no concern of concealability" then it's easy. I'd probably choose a chest rig because walking around with 3 lb of gun on your hip all day is not good for your back or your joints.
>with no concern of concealability
I have a 5.5'' SW29, with a shoulder holster I can even fit it under a college jacket.
>walking around with 3 lb of gun on your hip all day is not good for your back or your joints
How much do you weigh? 40 lbs? I bet your wrists hurt when you shoot anything bigger than .22
Of course any time anyone gives practical advice there's someone to accuse them of being a pussy. 44 mag is more gun than I need, not that there's anything wrong with people who do. 357 mag is a real comfortable shooter for me, though
>but anon I wear a burlap sack and I can conceal an rpg under it
That's great. nobody gives a shit
Everything's viable if you're a based open carry chad.
Based. ARfags and Glocksuckers cope and seethe because they look at-risk to everyone when they open carry.
This word should be a 7 day ban. It's pretty much what everyone else said. If you aren't worried about concealing or wear baggy clothes, are willing to deal with the discomfort of lugging a hunk of steel around in a thick ass holster that supports it well, and worried about bears, go live your cowboy dream. I mean do what you want anyway, the odds are it's enough for whatever you go through in life. If you live in a shit neighborhood then double stack is the way to go.
At the end of the day its a handgun. Will it be as easy to carry as an LCP, P365 or a Glock 19 sized gun? No, but it's doable if you're autistic enough to want to larp as dirty Harry.
a 4" N-frame, a 629, weighs about as much as a full-size 1911 and holds almost as many rounds; it's perfectly viable if you think you need that kind of firepower readily at hand.
that might be a little too big for practical purposes in which case for you I'd recommend .38 snub nose. The magnum they use that in Africa for killing elephants
Colt Python 357 4.25 inch > Everything else
Think you'll find the best carry revolver is actually the S&W 332, 32H&R, 2.0 inch.
And it's for that reason you're not admitted to the based lounge.
Way too long
do you feel lucky, punk?
>he doesnt colon carry a 44mag
Very. Elmer Keith carried one daily and he was old as dirt. No reason a fit, handsome young man as yourself couldn't one.
I follow the Elmer Keith twitter account and I want a 44 more than ever.
Pretty viable. If you don't want to carry a large frame revolver like a S&W29 or Ruger Redhawk, there are five shot medium frame guns like the S&W69 or Taurus 44 Tracker. Both are tge size of a S&W L frame. Overall weight for the Tracker is 35 ounces unloaded.
Here's the S&W model 69. It's the same frame as the 686, so 686/586 carry gear will work with it. Ith integral comp on the Taurus really helps tamp recoil down for follow up shots, so that's a consideration.
Good info thank you
If you have to ask you will miss and hurt your wrist.
>How viable is it to carry a 44 Magnum everyday?
Open carry, sure.
Concealed carry is kinda dumb, you should probably be shooting .44 SPL or some other caliber since actual .44 Mag in a small frame concealable gun will be a bad time.
I love my big ass Super Blackhawk but mostly shoot .44 spl with it.
A man's got to know his limitations
It's not comfy to IWB carry. You'd basically need to open carry if you want to be comfy.
I think it’s great but idk maybe a little over the top?
It all depends on what you're willing to compromise. A .44 magnum derringer is plenty carryable if you're willing to compromise on capacity and a .44 snub nose is not much fatter than a full size carry handgun so you could feasibly pocket it if you're not too small. Just be aware that powerful handgun cartridges in carryable form factors are a bitch to shoot and expensive to feed for questionable necessity. .45 LC +P and 10mm are pretty close to .44 magnum in performance out of a short barrel but probably give you better options. .45 LC/.410 derringers are cute little woods guns and a glock 29 is still a bitch to shoot but has much more capacity.
For how close 10mm and .44 magnum are at that barrel length, according to BBTI a Cor bon 165 grain bullet the 10mm one will be going 142 fps faster, probably because of lack of cylinder gap and a hair higher maximum pressure.
.44 magnum is a seductive round but you're making a lot of compromises, mainly cost, if you try to make it do it all.
Picrel is a Glock 29sf and a S&W 29 with a 6.5" barrel bu just cut off the barrel in your mind. The Glock 29 also happens to be about the same size as a 3" barrel model 60 so that should put in perspective the compromise stepping up from .357 makes in revolvers should you choose to carry one.
It's plenty viable.
5 shots of .44 Magnum is enough and if your state allows open carry, go ahead and get a 4 inch barrel.
I open carry a 1911, and sometimes a S&W 64-8.
Revolver is fine.
I wish I had open carry in my state
Go to a state that does and never vote for sissy- bitches.
Florida is too precious of a state for me
I just wish that we didn't have tradcucks in our legislature
Tennessee is comfy for non-yankoids.
