    Default What’s the longest handgun barrel you have?

    For me it was a Virginian Dragoon 357 with a 7.25 for years but recently it was beat due to my acquisition of a Smith 29-2 with 8 3/8 barrel. Funny how tastes change. A decade ago I was only interested in four inch or less revolvers. Now I seem to be of the longer the better mindset. I’m currently looking at a 29-3 with silhouette barrel (10 5/8”) and strongly considering starting the search for a Ruger Super Blackhawk with the 10.5” barrel.

    This got me wondering what barrel lengths the forum members are using. I’m also hoping some of you have experience with the extra length handgun barrels and can share your thoughts.

    The longest barrel I have is the one I was born with. The second longest is 5.5".

    My ZENITH Z-5RS has an 8.9 and it shoots pretty good, my Ruger Blackhawk has a 6.5" but I can't give a report as I have yet to shoot it.
    I know where Hunter's been.

    I don't discuss that one in polite company.

    Or here.

    Other than that, 2-5" 1911s and a 7.5" AR.

    I dunno... Never paid any attention. what's a G19 got? How about a full size 1911?
    Everything else I have is smaller.

    Unless we're counting AR15 pistols.

    Had a 686 8-3/8 that I regret selling.

    Have an AMT Lighting stainless .22 cal Target semi auto with an 11" tapered barrel. Circa 1980 maybe. Forget when I bought it, but somewhere back then.
