Quick review of S&W 44 mag 629 4"
« on: September 26, 2017, 11:09:26 AM »
Picked up a new S&W 629 4" in 44 mag from @carpsniper2 last spring. 

My one-emoji review is as follows:

 :tup:

Have run a few boxes through it, shoots very well for a 4" barrel. Much better than I thought it would. Trigger is excellent.

Bleach bottles drug behind the boat on a 50' tether (early season deckhand there), as well as old coho spoons at 45 feet (by my hand), don't stand a chance.

Thanks for the easy transaction carpsniper -

It is PURE coincidence that I had my deckhand practicing on an erratic surface target at about the approximate range and size of a sea lion's head...   :chuckle:

Ok, jokes, jokes. I wouldn't risk my everything by plugging a sea lion, no matter how much I hate them. I just accept feeding them is a cost of doing business, and they often bust off a spoon with the fish they stole. 

And I really hope they "get the point" when they're passing my stolen fish the next day...

Thanks Coach, I'll tighten it up!  :chuckle:

Think those are Silver Horde Fiesty models, but any dead spoon is a potential target imho.

I've had that same gun for 30 years.  They are awesome.  Good shooting.
Look man, some times you just gotta roll the dice

So many free days, so few fish....
