The video is a review of one of the creator’s favorite revolvers – the Smith and Wesson 629 44 Magnum Hunter. He starts off by saying that his father had a .44 Magnum when he was growing up, which he tried to shoot and was put off by the experience. He then realized as an adult that revolvers do have their benefits.

The S&W .44 Magnum was made famous in the 1970s by Clint Eastwood’s iconic “Dirty Harry” movies, where he points the revolver and utters the famous line, “Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?” Following the movie’s success, the .44 Magnum was the top dog and the hand cannon of the time, with everyone wanting a piece of the action. The revolver was eventually replaced by semiautomatic pistols and newer revolver models, but has remained a classic.

He says that the .44 was something he knew right away he needed to have, describing it as a gun “you know you want to sell your truck, your kids for.” He goes on to fire the .44 in a series of shooting tests, saying its compensator does an effective job of handling recoil. The .44 he shot as a child did not have a compensator, which accounted for his traumatic experience.

Aside from its specs, he says he wanted a multi-purpose revolver, one that he would be able to hunt large game with, aside from practicing at the range, given that he does quite a bit of hunting. The scope he mounted on the revolver was sent to him by Optics Planet, a red-dot that turned out to be a good sight, not losing its zero no matter how much recoil there was.

He recommends the .44 Magnum revolver to anyone, saying it’s a fun, interesting gun to have and to shoot, and he always shows it off to guests coming in for a visit.
