Smile "North Coast" Newbie

Greetings All,
After acquiring my third S&W wheelie I figured I might just come on board to share knowledge and if not careful just might pick up some. My first was a 617 6" "ten shooter". That was enough to get the "hook" into me. As of late I've gone to the other end of the "power spectrum". Recently picked up a Performance Center 629 44 Mag with the 8 3/8 barrel. I topped it with a Trijicon RMR 7 MOA. That one impressed me so much I decided to go BIGGER. Today I'm picking up the "Long Tom". The Performance Center 460XVR with the 14" barrel. Going to take that to Texas next month to hunt hogs. Can't wait to get it to the range and verify what I've been told is its "laser like" performance with the Hornady 200 gr FTX ammo. Putting a Aimpoint Micro H-2 2 MOA on top. From the videos I've watched that BIG brake really tames the recoil. But I've been warned about how LOUD it's gonna be. That's OK. They make muffs and plugs just for that reason.

Welcome from Wisconsin, Bob!

You'll scare the hogs to death with the sound alone, LOL.
