45 Colt and 44 Mag can both be loaded to very powerful rounds but they are big cartridges so generally pretty heavily built guns. 9mm and 45 acp are both good self defense rounds but they aren’t the best choice for hunting in Alaska. 

I personally like 357/38. You can do everything from barely putting holes in paper using light 38 special all the way up to black bear defense with hot 357 rounds. I suspect I’d like 44mag/44 special in the same way, though I don’t have one at the moment. So if you are not interested in 357 and are looking for a jack of all trades sort of caliber, that’d be my choice.

I like the Redhawk 44 mag with a 5.5” barrel

or the S&W 629 6” barrel

I understand the interest in using 9mm and 45 acp in a revolver but I feel there are better options for those rounds in a semi so other then maybe needing only one type of ammo for a semi, revolver and pistol caliber carbine or using it for competition like IDPA, I am not sure there is a lot of practical benefit in them but sometimes it’s not about practicality :)

Split the difference. Easier to handle and more comfortable to shoot that a .44, much more power than a .357 for when you need it = .41 Remington Magnum.

Not easy to find, but a 41 in an S&W Mountain gun, or their Scandium framed models have always been on my list. Wish they would make an L-frame in that caliber.

Thanks, makes a lot of sense.  I do have the 357 already and it's always been a favorite caliber of mine.

Just want another is all, not worried about price per se or purpose.  just one more

Then this thread is meaningless.  You aren't giving any information to help you make a smart decision.  Good luck and enjoy your next wheel gun.

 not at all, in my initial post I was clear that I'm open to different calibers and ideas. Typically what that means is people will provide their opinions and you can take them for what they are worth. I'm totally open on what I want that's the beauty of wanting something different in that it does not have to be specific! In any event I've decided to buy another 357 and I'm going to buy a Colt Python. The Anaconda looks interesting as well but I do love the 357 round.

  some of our fellow board members really do have some gorgeous pythons.

Ruger Blackhawk Convertible can fire 357mag, 38spl, 9mm.

S&W Governor can fire 45acp, 45lc, 410shotgun. Also available with a laser. 

Or you could get a crossman bb pistol with revolving cylinder. 

I'll look at that with another permit.  both sound interesting.  thx

Throw back gun days..old school setup but very cool...

Edit: does Ruger still cut their ring grooves on the Redhawk anymore ? Ill have to research that..

yes, they still do different part # for pistol with cuts adds 80.00 to cost. which is good deal..

    • Thanks. I bought a Chiappa RAK 9 which according to the manufacturer will take standard AK furniture. The RAK 9 came with the fuggliest polymer stock/pistol grip I've ever seen but it also came with the hardware to install a standard pistol grip. I really want to put traditional wood furniture on it. Would you recommend any particular seller? I found 1 Apex Gun parts.
    • I’m interested with a possible +1. I know weekdays are quiet but don’t know about the weekends either.
    • Here's the OP original post: So, it sounds like it's his go-to tool. Those are great, and something everyone needs to consider. Here are some other points of consideration, how will you defend yourself from different areas of your home? If you're sitting in the family room, and a perp kicks in your front door, getting to the locked safe in your bedroom for your H.D. AR15 is going to be a real problem. Everyone needs to do a walk through, and war game every area of your home, and how you'll react if a intruder comes through various doors. In many cases, it might require having quick access tools in multiple places. Is placing multiple AR15s in different rooms the solution in your houses? It's not in mine. Many people think they can buy a AR15 or shotgun, and stick it in a locked safe in their bedroom closet, and they're protected. That's a really poor plan. That plan is as bad as the people who install a Ring video doorbell, and think they have great a video surveillance system protecting their home, or buy one fire extinguisher and put it in the garage, and think they're safe from fire. Home defense is a multi level, multiple ring system, that requires various tools and plans. Here's the motto I live by: One is none Two is one And Three is where you want to be
    • Vmax rounds are awesome!  And yeah, miss with ANYTHING and drywall isn't stopping it.
