329 night guard 2 1/2" barrel. Does anyone have one? Or have they shot one? I'm wondering how it handles. Is the recoil all that bad? I like recoil, but would I be able to put 100 rounds through it at the range and still be able to drive home? Any help?

I have a 3" steel-framed RB 44mag Smith and it is a handful. I put SB grips on it and that helped.

That 2.5" 44mag would be a beast!

No experience with the Night Guard, but I have shot a 329PD...I can only assume the Night Guard would be very similar

And yes...the 329PD hurt!! It wasn't even particularly fun with my light handloads.

I would shoot .44 Specials in it.

I had a 5-shot 44 back in the 1970s. It was light weight and nice with rubber grips and highly accurate with specials.

No way I'd shoot full-house magnums out of it...

Hold out your hand, ask a friend to smack you with a baseball bat in the web of your hand. Less expensive, similar feeling....

.44 Mag and '26 ounces weight' do not really mix...

Neither do .357 mag and thirteen ounces weight. (340PD)

I have a 327 TRR8 357/38 and love it. Recoil is ok with either 38+p or 357mag. I also have a 325 Thunder Ranch 45acp that is a little too much for me. I like the gun, the balance, moon clips, accuracy, "6 for sure," all of it...except the recoil from one handed shooting. The really short barrels might be a different story on the accuracy out to 35-50 yds. My 325 is for sale on this forum for that reason...otherwise, it would be a keeper.

I'll let you guys know on Friday...I just bought one. :supergrin:

I have a 629 with a 3 inch barl...and it's a handful with the right loads. With specials it's not bad.

I'll wear roller skates and fire rapidly. We'll see if I can shoot and retreat at the same time. :supergrin:

Really, for a proper test I should get some Barnes Copper solids or some 300+ grain .44s and a doctor to splint my hand. :supergrin:

The 629 weighs 41 ounces....

The 329, ...only 27 ounces...

Yeah. Should pack a pouding for the shooter. My bet is specials are the best load for it...and that's why I bought it. I wantd a .44 special.

love my 329PD 4"

and the recoil...
come on guys, its not that bad. :dunno:

my dealer looked at me funny when ordering it, and asked if my wrist was still intact the next time in, I just laughed and said, "yep :supergrin:, love the gun!"

Off the top of my head my loads are;

240gr lead @ 1300fps - target
240gr GD HP "+"
300gr GD uni-cor @ 1150 fps...:wow: 4 the big tooth critters

but the beast is probably
200 gr GDHP 44 spl @ 1700+ fps... can you say muzzle flash!
SD load to end em all.:shocked:
