OK, I can see that POV. I view GP/SP/SRH as self defense/woods guns and I only use them in DA mode (I own four). If I want to have fun I drag out my Flattops in 357/9mm/44spl...one more round, no waiting! I guess I need to think about the GP as a fun gun

A 5-shot .44 would be cool but I'm still waiting on a 10mm version. I'd love to have a Clements conversion but really want Ruger to step-up and make a factory version....

It would be sweet in.45 L . After all, what!'s a couple hundredths of an inch between friends?

3" for carry, 4" for general purposes, and 6" for target/hunting. I'd buy all 3 versions....

Big slower bullet for plenty of energy but without the noise level of a 357 magnum. After having to fire a 357 magnum indoors without ear protection, I switched to a 44 special for home protection.

Have you tried shooting your .44 Special indoors without ear protection for the sake of comparison?

Don't!
Even though it might be minor, still permanent ear damage.

Don't do it just to experiment!

According to this chart (I cannot attest to accuracy), the 44 special would be slightly quieter than the 38 special, but still more than enough to damage your hearing.

How loud is your gun

I would not encourage discharging firearms indoors without hearing protection for any reason except an actual defensive situation.

I've seen that chart before but to me it's somewhat questionable. For instance, I can't believe a 20ga shotgun is only 1dB louder than a .22 pistol.

Getting back to the op's post I would absolutely buy one either 3 or 4 inch and as far as the other calibers posted I would probly lust after those as well!
