I am interested in getting the opinion of people you have shot the Smith and Wesson Model 629 revolver in different barrel lengths. I have shot the 6" barrel and it was doable. S&W has it available now in 2 5/8", 4", 5", 6", and 6 1/2" barrels. The longer barrels are heavier guns so that probably makes them easier to shoot.. Are the shorter barrels difficult to shoot (feel, recoil, etc)? I am interested in hearing about shooting .44 Magnum cartridge.(I know that the .44 special cartridge is a different animal and easier to shoot).
I am looking at getting a pump shotgun for use in knock down steel matches. I am interested in the Remington 870 and I have a few questions: 1-What length barrel would you recommend? I was thinking about the 26" or 28" as it would allow me to add a large magazine extension to the end of the barrel. btw: I won't be using this for clays as I would eventually like to get either an over/under or side by side for that. 2-I am assuming the more shells that the magazine can hold the better (from the speed of reloading sense). But will too long a gun with too many shells make the gun too front heavy? Any other thoughts/suggestions will be appreciated.
