S&W Governor

The world is upside down. S&W followed Taurus.

I would be more interested if it were 45 Colt and could not shoot 410.

I like that it also accepts cal. .45 acp, it makes it more versatile.
The brochure for it didn't dl will it accept .45acp with half or full moon clips?
Do you know the msrp?
Demand stringent background and mental health checks on your politicians.

When Sturm Ruger copies the Public Defender with the amount of steel they put into their Alaskan, then, it will be my time to buy one of these.

Why?
Because it would not have as long a cylinder, and you could have that same space be barrel. which would give more velocity. Also it would have less jump to the barrel. What does S&W sell for compact 45 Colt revolvers?

Much easier to find a compact .44 Mag eh? It seems like .45 Long Colt has largely been relegated to Single Action Revolvers and as a loophole excuse to manufacture sawed off pocket shot guns. Not that I'm complaining though. I love my Vaquero TALO Anniversary, and my mother loves her pink handled Judge.

Didn't Taurus also have the 7 and 8 shot .357mag before S&W?

How can the Governor accept 45 ACP? Isn't it "chambered" for .410 cal?

But forget all that. What I want to know is whether the Governor can be modified (or purchased threaded) for a suppressor!

Wow, I just realized that this a 2-year-old thread. Maybe I need to direct my thoughts elsewhere...
