Finally a topic I can participate in lol. I've got a few. I love my mark II. The 22 is a great deadly gun. It will go through Kevlar. Good in bounces around but first have the power for a through and through.

I've got several guns and shoot often.

My Ruger doesn't have the"Bull Barrel", but wish it did. Still a great gun to shoot, and very cheap to do so. Actually, some of you gun "guru's" may can help[ me actually identify my Ruger model. It looks like a Mark II or Mark III, but says neither on the gun???

Here are the 3 handguns I own. The top is a 10" barreled Wildey chambered in .44 Automag. The middle is the Colt Model 70 Govt. model .45. The bottom is my old Smith & Wesson K-22 Masterpiece.

That's an interesting assortment. Did you get the Wildey after the Dirty Harry movie, or after someone else did and didn't like the .44 magnum. I ask, because I did that. I bought a pristine six inch model 29 after someone else saw Dirty Harry and shot it six times and didn't pick it up again.

I forgot to mention,but I also have a 9mm WWII German Luger that my Dad brought back from overseas in 1945.
It's been at my Uncles place,locked up in a safe for years.

I got the Wildey because I loved it in the Death Wish 3 movie. The one that Dirty Harry shot in Sudden Impact was an AMT Automag. Totally different gun. My Wildey is almost identical to The one Charles Bronson shot except for the cartridge. His was the .475 Wildey magnum, and mine is chambered for the .44 Automag cartridge.

Yup, I stand corrected. That brought back great memories of two movies now.

So, how does it shoot? I've never seen one in person. I would bet it is sweet. Good call on the .44 magnum caliber. Does anyone still make .475 Wildey?

The Wildey is in new, unfired condition. And it is a 44 Automag cartridge, not the 44 magnum. Two entirely different cartridges. The Automag is based on the 30-06 or 308 cut down and inside reamed to accept the 44 caliber bullet. It is based on a rifle cartridge. And yes, they still produce the .475 Wildey.

I have a few can never have to many. I work in a gun shop & it's great. As far as some were saying that you need at least a .40 Cal. For protection. This is what I've been told & we tell others it's all about shot placement. ImageUploadedByTapatalk1349407448.841043.jpg s&w 357 mag. ImageUploadedByTapatalk1349407479.924008.jpg ivery Johnson 22.

Just chiming in from the distaf side, I love my Ruger .22 single six, but it does lack your chrome barrell. I mostly pack it on long walks in the bush--- live far enough north there are few people problems, just bears and wolves---- not into killing them, just making enough noise to scare them away! Any other old ladies packing iron out there? olde deeres
