I'm a bowhunter and after nearly getting stomped into the dirt by an irrate cow moose because I accidentally wandered in between her and her calf, I wanted a special sidearm for the hunt. So I bought the 629 with a 2 1/2" fluted barrel. The idea is to have a weapon that has both a bark and a bite since after all, I really don't want to have to shoot a moose or a bear or any other critter in self defense. And this gun definitely has a bark! I'm confident that if the situation arises, the report itself will stop any animal long enough for me to make tracks out of there. And if I'm wrong, well, it is a .44 Mag after all.

The 629 isn't the ideal concealed carry weapon, but I can hide it well under a jacket or heavy sweater. In town, I load with .44 Specials. (I think a .44 Mag is too much in the city.)

Despite the short barrel, the 629 is very accurate. The rear sight adjusts quickly and easily for elevation and that comes in handy since I'm changing loads often. My only complaint is that the stainless finish is difficult to keep clean on the cylinder, around the flutes and on the front sight. But if you're into hand cannons, the 629 is a great choice.

Yeas, it has a serious kick. But the large neoprene grip makes it relatively easy to control and after repeated shots, it still feels more comfortable than some smaller guns I've shot.

Serbu super shorty! I have yet to try the Knoxx breachers grip but I love recoil and as far as recoil per $ the srebu is hard to beat :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

For the life of me I can't figure out how any gun can have too much power

Its more easily figured out when you are on the receiving end. To much penetration is sometimes confused with to much power, thats an extra unintentional hole in some one/thing else.

I've got a 5", 4", and 3" 629. I love them to death. The 4" incher is my favorite. With Iron sights, it can hold a 4 inch pattern at 100 yards. I've not seen the 2.5 inch backpacker. Got any pics?

I have a 629 Classic in Stainless, mine has a 6" barrel. I love it. I don't mind the longer 6" barrel, I have even carried it concealed in my work bag :D I have some hand casted rounds with gas checks that I love to shoot out of it! 23.5 grains of 2400! and it has plenty of bark!
