I see no reason to get a 41 mag it serves no purpose for me.
My sentiments exactly. I have 22s, .357s, I have .44s (.429) and .45s.... The .41 just doesn't fit. I can load .44Mag up or down to meet my needs so 'recoil' isn't a factor as mentioned above. If you are not a reloader, you can still load .44Specials if recoil sensitive. Not so in .41Mag. There is no denying the .41 is a good cartridge (a reloader's cartridge in my mind).... It just doesn't fit into 'my' stable. In fact .... If the 22LR/Mag can't, the .357 can, if the .357 doesn't do it, I can reach for the .44Spec, if it can't handle it, the .45 Colt will . Big and slow is way to go... So where does even the .44Mag fit in? Hah! Another range 'argument' ....errr discussion!
A clinger. When guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns. Single Action .45 Colt (Sometimes improperly referred to by its alias as the .45 'Long' Colt or .45LC). Don't leave home without it. Ok.... the .44Spec is growing on me ... but the .45 Colt is still king.
