and if use a lw, compact .22,llike a 6" long, 18 oz, 2" at 25m Smith 2214, you can ALSO have a useful centerfire, like a lw Commander in 9x23win, for the SAME total handgun wt as the monster SA revolver, LESS cost, and a LOT more utility. 18 ozs +28 ozs=46 ozs, and the sort of 90 gr 9mm jhp's most useful in the 9x23 weigh a LOT less than 325 gr .45 slugs. 235grs less, along with a lesser case wt, so say, 250 grs each. Say 50 grs for the .22's. So, 9 rds of .22lr, and 10 rds of 9x23, versus as many rds of 45 monster loads, saves another lb of ammo wt. you can use your "shotloads' in the monster SA, on birds, to maybe 25 ft, but the 2214 can take them to 25m, quite handily. If you dont CARE if you miss half of them, it can serve to 50m, too. Some people just LIKE wasting time and money. I don't.
