    For me there aren't many experiences that beat shooting a top shelf highly tuned revolver. This experience ranks right up there with sporting around town in a 1970 Hemi Powered Cuda and laying a little rubber down on the street. Though it has been many years since I have sat behind the wheel of a vintage hotrod, recently I was afforded the opportunity to review one of Smith and Wesson's latest hotrods the S&W 629 Competitor. Let me tell you this is no standard 629 it is truly one on steroids. Built on the time tested N Frame this Performance Center revolver has been through an overhaul with new innovation like a weighted barrel and the bead blasted finish making it easy on the eyes.

    Neat gun! That "latest hotrod" has been around for years though.

    While I prefer single actions for 44s. That looks awful nice!

    Ive a Uberti Cattleman, peacemaker replica, and, boy, is that a fun gun. I shoot 45 colt blackpowder loads: 255 g bullet, going about 900 fps. Most enjoyable.
