Thanks for supporting DWF


I went to a bookstore and asked the saleswoman "Were is the Self Help Section?" She said if she told me, it would defeat the purpose.

Happy to contribute to and support an outstanding forum. I’m not a collector but have been a DW admirer, owner, and shooter for many years (1984). I fire a few calibres and tried to find a higher quality (accurate!) factory firearm in each that I wanted/could afford to play in. I’ve never for a moment been disappointed in the 44mag choice, the DW. Much the opposite, it’s been so impressive in performance and appearance and has made me proud and happy, every time.

And it’s never let me down! – maintenance free except for the careful cleaning I give it every time I fire it.

And it’s truthfully only shot full load – 240gr Nosler JHP; federal fc, prep’d, brass; federal 115 primers; and xx.xgr H4227 (can I edit in my actual load later?). A load recommended in IHMSAs 1982 ’Reloading Guide for Handgun Accuracy’  – Signature Edition (they used a 10” (1 in 18.75”) DW for load testing! And this load has always worked for me in my 8” config.


To find a group of individuals who share in the DW passion as much as I do is just marvellous. There are no DW purchases in my future but I’ll continue to hang around, and treasure my DW. I’ll try and contribute where I can but it will be hard because of quality of the collective knowledge – encyclopaedic!

And I’m really enjoying the pictures. They are of such a high quality and depict some incredible pieces and packages. I thought the ‘And Now For Something Completely Different’ (got the MegaSet!), by IMSA80x80 was exceptional. Had me going to google.

My greatest DW pleasure is taking it to the range and firing very small groups, so I can try to contribute on reloads/reloading  and accuracy topics.


And very happy to be here.

Congratulations to management
