    It's a fine nightstand gun loaded with three 00 buckshot each cartridge.
    Not so good at skeet. With no. 9 shot, skeet targets can be hit from stations 1, 2, 6, 7 and 8. The longer shots from 3, 4 and 5 the pattern has a huge hole in the middle. Double action on doubles is a bear.

    I still laugh at the gun store counter clerk who tried to sell me one. According to him, it was just short of a nuke in destructive capability.

    MmmmHmm. You know, down the street around the corner but easy enough to walk around and find your big black Lab.

    At first he claimed it was his. Dunno what made him change his mind. :loaded:

    I have had one for a while, but it pretty much sits in the safe. In my experience you could shoot 00 buck at someone 15 feet away and all three pellets might miss. I carry my 629 with shot rounds I reloaded myself for snakes. It’s light enough to be uncomfortable to shoot with 45. It’s a great idea but ultimately trying to do too many things.

    Someone that would steal a dog, IMO, is just a POS scum.

    A dog thief should be shot and drug somewhere that the boys can eat the carcass.

    I don't like thieves in general, but specifically dog thieves.

    Depends on which way the barrel is pointed I reckon.

    Had a S&W Governor for a while.
    Solid gun.
    If I had land to run around on it would’ve seen more use so I sold it.
    Too large for concealed carry.

    I have a long barrel I wear when I’m working around the house/ranch. It has taken many many rattlers and is awesome at it.

    I think it gets more use then most dispatching unwanted things and chicken killers.

    I fired a S&W prototype Governor at SHOT one year. Looked way nicer than the Taurus.
