My wife has her eye on my 6" 629 in a shoulder rig, wants to carry it as "the" firearm for protection. Have had in stock or store a couple of hundred rounds of PB .430" 250gr. Keith style bullets from Mt. Baldy now loaded with/in .44 Special cases, with 7.5 gr. Unique with WLP primers crimped with the Redding Profile Crimp die Series A
Knowing full well she is not a handgunner of any sorts I SUSPECT after shooting some 50 rounds of practice shots she should be versed enough to have the mind set to use the proper hand technique to deal with the standard bear-BooBoo.
I am hoping after I turned down her use of my .40 smith some yrs. back and the G20 she can do well with the Smith. It has the weight and bbl. length for sight control, as she mentioned she likes the balance and the pointability. Now for just getting used to carrying it around-it does now offer me a strong sense of greater assurance of self protection when she heads out to pick her berries or .........
I won't introduce her to my loads in the mag class, figure these Keith loads to do what is needed. Am I correct? Better than a sharp stick or a poke in the eye for sure!
