Cause they are fun! You don't tell me how to spend my paycheck and I won't tell you how to spend your welfare check.

Re: .22's r fun to shoot, stupe, so WHY .44
Why spend 10X the cost on a standard house restroom when one in your bedroom (like a cell) works just as well for a lower cost?

Why pay more for the ammo?
because we can afford to.
And if we can afford to, then why should you care?
I own several guns that I enjoy shooting simply for recreation, including my .338.
but, since it costs more to shoot my .338 than it does any of my .22's, I guess I shouldn't shoot my .338 any more?
give me a break!
Just more jealous whining on the part of GunKlutz.

Why the 44? Besides the fact that its fun, I just like it and can shoot it well.
I just love it that you're afraid of N frames and can't shoot them well.
Your jealousy suits you but you'll never have green eyes.

.22s are fun
.30+ cals are Fun
Big bores are FUN.
It's a matter of scale.
Some of us can handle .22s without a compensator. Most of us can handle calibers which begin with a "5", or a metric designation that begins with a "2" or "3".

And I bet dragging a main-battle-wheelbarrow isn't fun! Nor being without guns and just reading gun rags.
So, stupekid, you can just sit there and have NO fun, the others here can go out and shoot anytime, anyplace, with our .22s, 5.56, .30 cal, 9mms, .45s, etc... etc... etc....
So who is the stupe here?

I don't shoot .44 special, but my total cost for loading .45Colt is just primers and powder. I have no idea what primers run currently, but I paid from $3 to $4 per hundred for what I have on hand. Powder is another 1-2 cents per round, so less than $3 per box of 50 - or 6 cents per round - for my centerfire stuff. I view the cost of ammo simply as "the cost of replenishing/replacing what I shoot". So since .22LR pretty much has to be bought as factory-new ammo, compared to shooting my own centerfire ammo, current market conditions mean that the rimfire stuff is roughly six times more expensive for me to shoot than my .45 colt or .38 special. What a strange year...
Reloading is good, if you shoot enough to make it worthwhile.

Shooting lots of calibers is fun. If you have the ammo or the budget for the ammo, then who cares what anyone shoots?
Unless you’re suffering from petty jealousy.
I try to shoot all my calibers on a regular basis. Nothing wrong with being proficient with your firearms.
