    I feel like my Sig is a hand cannon. I know I wouldn't want to be looking at the wrong end of it.

      I used to have a S&W .460 XVR. I got to where I could shoot a pop can consistently at 30 yards with it. I took it deer hunting and I missed by 10 feet. This gun is so heavy it requires every ounce of concentration to shoot it straight. It is like holding a rifle in one hand and shooting it. I traded it off on a S&W 629 .44 magnum. No regrets.

        I tried the Taurus Judge. I bought it for my wife. The 410 recoil was brutal. Too much for me let alone my wife. I sold it immediately. I believe the darringer will be difficult to hold on to when fired. I too am a 629 fan or 29 for that matter. I have had several encluding the hunter version that I have now. I also like the Ruger Redhawk in 4 inch. Amazing trigger pull for such a big gun. It's built in such a way that I think that you could beat a tank apart with it.

            I love my .45/70's and had looked at a .45/70 5 shot revolver. I would definitly think of that as a hand cannon. The thing was freakin huge, and the ultimate in home defence.

              I have a Ruger Super Redhawk Alaskan. I call it the Little Monster. It's a .454 Casull with a 2 1/2 inch barrell that kicks like a Government Mule! My buddy and I went to the range right after I picked it up with a box of Buffalo Bore 325 grains! I loaded it and hefted it... and set it down and shook my head... my buddy looks at me and asks "Ever have a gun you were afraid to shoot?" Answer: Not until today!... So I picked it up lined it up and fired it up... Buddy laughed and laughed.... When i asked him what the hell was so funny.... Answer: Dude your arm looked like a five year old girl's with a .44 magnum in it!... I just held the Little Moster out and said Your Turn!... Apparently I was able to hold the look of pain in somehow because he took it ... fired it... and set it down to hold his shoulder.... he said it felt like a Mule Kicked him in the shoulder... that's when I fessed up and said "I think it broke a bone in my hand!"

              We finished the few boxes we bought though. I got the gun for when my buddy and I go to Alaska fishing next year. I've got a bad knee (really bad) and can't run very well so I figure if it comes down to a bear wanting what I have... I will give it up... unless it wants me... then I will go home with a bear rug!

              As far as shooting goes, it is pretty accurate out to 25-30 yards and is much easier to handle with .45 LC for practice. The full loads really do a number on active targets (watermelon, water jugs, full soda cans, unopened tomato sauce etc). The trigger is a bit heavy, but I'm good with it being that way.

                I have the Ruger Redhawk in 44 mag. with a 3 inch barrell. It's the first .44 I've ever had that I preferred over the Smith 629. The trigger pull is awesome, crisp and light (about 8 lbs) for that size revolver. I've not shot anything bigger than a 44 and I don't think that I want to. I'm amazed at how the Ruger products are built. I think that I could take that Redhawk and beat apart a Abrams tank with it. Have fun in Alaska.

                  I have a Ruger super blackhawk hunter 7.5" 44 mag. For hunting in the brush and swamps were I hunt it is fast and lite. It has had a trigger job, new hammer and trigger and night sights with custom grips no scope. I know my comfort level for hunting with this gun is between 50-60 yards. When I bought it I was torn between the super redhawk and the super blackhawk but the super blackhawk will handle hotter hand loads ( that I will most likely never shoot). I went with it because I liked the clean single action lines it has. As for hand connons I have fired 3 different S&W 500's 4", 8", 10.5" and none of them was fun.

                      I also have the Super Blackhawk 7.5 44 Mag. in stainless or nickle or what ever they are referring to it as these days. I don't take it out much mainly stays in the safe . It's kinda pricey to shoot these days.

                        I have a Bond Arms 410/45LC. I like it. It stays in my entertainment center to clear a path to other firearms.

                          I want one, with different barrels, I've really been thinking about one as a backup gun
                          My weapon can kill, it isn't limited to mere assault

                            S&W Model 27-2 3 1/2" barrel. Nickle plated with target trigger and hammer. Had to laugh when an admirer described her as a 'fire belching weapon of the gods'.

                            Edit to add..... .357 of course. Does anybody have a 27-2? I ask because I'd be interested to know what your preferred load is.

                              I have 2 Lew Horton S & W revolvers. One is a 629(.44 mag) stainless with a 4" barrel that shots about an 8 foot flame with each shot and the other is a 686 (.357 mag.)with the 2 1/2 " barrel. They are both fun to shoot, but if the target is more than 5 feet away, you may not hit it. My dad refers to them as belly guns.
