.500 S&W. Love the way it shoots and feels. Of course, can't beat the looks it gets at the range too javascript:vwlrg('/wcsstore/SmWesson/upload/images/firearms/163500_large.jpg',540,300)

I like the 22.caliber and the 357 magnum

I like the 357 mostly because I don't have a S&W Model 500

I really wouldn't mind having the 41 magnum
Or a 44 magnum

So for now my model 19 S&W 357 will do just fine.
It has done a good job so far.

I have a custom 1911 in 40S&W, just a great shooting pistol.
When deer season rolls around I drop in a 10mm barrel. Just
a little more case capacity for more powder.

41 mag fan for life. Elk,deer,bear, and mountain lion have all fell to it. 44mag power and a whole lot of accuracy. Most people don't like them because avalibility of ammo. Reloaders should look into this caliber.
