I like something a little smaller than 44cal. I have found at the end of the week when I look back at all the bad guys I had to shoot 44 was over kill and makes unnecessary mess to clean up.

What do you carry your 27 in?
Right now, just an old Hunter 1100. Eventually, I'll get around to making a new holster, but I have to do one for my M&P first.

I am NOT concerned with total concealment. My shirt pulled out over it is sufficient for my purposes.

The Model 29 is a heavy, bulky beast.

.44 Rem Mag is definitively diminishing returns for self-defense. The .44 Special is an excellent self-defense cartridge. Either way, it's heavy, bulky, limited to six rounds, and it takes too long to reload another six. On top of that, you'll have to take your eyes off of a criminal who's putting rounds on you to reload it.

If I were going to carry a revolver for self-defense, it would be a Model 60.

There are too many excellent quality semis on the market to make a revolver a wise self-defense choice. Check out Springfield Armory's Hellcat: https://www.springfield-armory.com/h...eries-handguns

I've read that a copy of the Hellcat endured a 20,000+ round torture test without a single malfunction. I doubt whether many revolvers could do that.
