Ok. So, really only one big gun… but that’s OK.
When I was switching jobs I promised myself that I’d get myself a gun of some variety when I got my new job. It was a toss-up between a 30-06 and a .44 Magnum. I set the criteria based on the properties of my next job and after I got the job the choice was made for me.
The gun in question is a Smith and Wesson .44 Magnum revolver.
I had a .357 that was one of my dad’s guns back in the day:

They are both formidable, but I would be far more afraid of one of these:
The one thing I have to say is that while developing a load for this cartridge, the gun beat me up. The grip, right where it met the inside of my thumb, started rubbing my skin under recoil. Over the next 120 rounds this led to a blister.
