Was at my local dicks and they had 444 on clearance for 180. They also had 4 44 mag for 280. When I looked at a few of the rifles the barrels were marked like a accessory barrel. Is that normal with the last run rifles? I asked if the 44 were gonna go on clearance. I was told not as long as they are still being manufacured. I told them they have been Handi have been discontinued. After playing on his computer looking for them to prove me wrong he gave up looking after not finding any in inventory. Said he would look into it. I'm hoping they get discounted. Then will get a few for Christmas gifts. Gonna go back Wednesday see if they are discounted. I can hope at least.
