I love the lines of this old gun and would love to have a few "desk top" photos to add to my collection.

Anyone have some sharp photos of 4" .38-44 Heavy Duties they'd care to share? :roll:

IIRC... Carl has one that he captured on photo a few weeks ago. It's around here somewhere...

Carl, that may be the ultimate in aesthetics, particularly the outside shot. "She Who Must Be Obeyed" walked by as I was admiring your 38/44 HD, I asked her what she thought of it, she replied "gorgeous!"
I whole heartedly concur . . .Oh what the heck, let me add "stunning!"

Great sugggestion Moondawg! That is one of the very best looking handguns ever built.

I kick myself for all those cheap .38-44s I dropped like a hot potato at gun shows through the years because, upon examination, they weren't .44s.

Of course I also kick myself for trading a nickel 4-inch Model of 1926 for the blue 5-inch I have now.

Only a few of many things I could kick myself over.

Well here's an image that I am currently using as an avatar. This is a transitional HD with the long-throw action.



Only four holes because that was all I had left. This was the last target of the day.


Here's what it looks like on the other side:


July of 1946 -- not quite a birth year gun, but since I showed up in July of 1945, I consider this a belated first birthday present to myself.

Wow, you guys are my heros! Great pics and they are really appreciated. The 4" (and 3 1/2") N frames are favorites, and I'd love to have a 38/44.
