There is 44mags you carry and 44mags you shoot. There is a huge trade off in recoil and accuracy. I briefly had a S&W 329. It is the lightest 44mag and by far recoiled harder than any of my 454 Casulls. In my handgun hunting experience, a S&W 629 6" is as good as it gets as far as carrying it all day and not giving up any accuracy. I hunted for years with the 454Casull. 454Casulls are too heavy of a platform to carry all day and over kill for deer. A 6"-6.5" 44mag is perfect.
I wouldnt sell this particular gun for twice what I paid for it.
