Not mine

My buddy has an S&W ported revolver called "The Trailboss" in .44 magnum with 3" barrel. I stupidly fired it ONCE without hearing protection. My ears rang for two days afterwards. Even with headphones on I don't like to shoot it much more than a cylinder full at a time.

Mine is a toss up between a short barrelled .357 mag and a Ruger Blackhawk .45 Colt with my "Ruger Only" hand loads.

S&W 460 XVR... By far my loudest hand gun.

Ruger Alaskan

My loudest gun is my Ruger Super Redhawk Alaskan .454 Casull loaded to the max charge and bullet weight.

That 2 1/2" barrel snub-nose is LOUD !!!!!!

Loudest I ever shot probably goes to a TC in 44-440. Loudest I own recently went to the Coonan .357. It is pretty ridiculous on the decibel level but a lot of fun to shoot.
Seams like once we the people give what, at the time, seams like a reasonable inch and "they" take the unreasonable mile we can only get that mile back one inch at a time.

No spelun and grammar is not my specialty. So please don't hurt my sensitive little feelings by teasing me about it.

Probably a 44 mag. NAA semi auto in 32 acp is amazingly loud for its tiny size.
