However, I wonder if you carry your GP44 these days, or have you fondled one yet?

I know a guy who was Hunting and had a guy linp into camp with a .44 Magnum
bullet in his lower leg.

The guy had been wearing a Old Model Super, and chopping kindling at the same time.

Somehow the hatchet hit the hammer over a live round in the chamber.

That said: it was an experine to live by and the transfer bar would have saved the
guy from the accident.

Unless an Old Model, I always load 6 rounds.

5 for the 5-shot Rugers.
Keep in mind that some revolvers were rimfire not just 22lr. When center fire came along a simple method already used on a 58 Remy was available to centerfire revolvers. Rest the firing pin between the case heads, you can hit it all day it will not fire the revolver. The problem with that is it does leave marks on the cylinder between the notches.

Conversion cylinder for the 31 caliber Colt pocket pistol was made with a notch cut between two cylinders for this purpose so the gun could be loaded with 5 for matches.

I carry my revolvers fully loaded as long as they are centerfire. The mark it leaves does not concern me.
