Would you guys say that a 7.5 inch barrel on a .44 mag is too much barrel to have in the field?

    Nope! The longer the barrel, the longer the sighting plane which translates to improved accuracy.
    Personally, I think a 12" barrel is max.

      Like Bubba said and maybe a few more feet per second as well. It should carry well in a cross-chest bandoleer style holster.

        I find th 7 1/2 good enough to blow a swimming water mexican outta the water at 50', shooting offhand.

        Butt a Uncle Mike's shoulder holster works well with the 12" barl.

              Dallas -

              Ye called fur an antzer and ye gottit!

              Dawgz cain't spell.

              Butt Ah must seize the opportunity to note thet yore attitude and inexperience has caused ye to engage in prolonged locking of the horns and redundant re-belaboring of points with at least one very patient , informed, and acomplished writer on here.

              Ah will go so far to suggest ye look for humor, rather than seeing the world through jaundiced eyes.

              Ye are looking at the world through a piss filter.

              Nobuddy is interested in witnessing another of yer fault-finding expeditions or adamant assertations of irrelevant political views.

              So lighten TF Up!

                  Too much barrel. And too much gun.

                    Hmmm. Someone needs to check his blood sugar level.

                      I've shot 44's at variance of lengths and I prefer the 7 1/5. Any shorter and it really gets loud including lower velocities.

                      21.0 grains of 2400 behind a 255 Keith Cast works fantastic!

                        Skeeter Skelton's favorite hunting handgun was a Ruger Blackhawk .44 Magnum with a 7 1/2" barrel.

                          Sir E. Keith claimed to have killed a mulie buck at like 425 yards with a 4" M29!
                          Wasn't there!
                          Didn't see it!
                          It was a magazine article!
