3 Cribs SR
The .44 Shepherd can only fire six rounds before being reloaded, and unlike the other pistols in the game, it cannot be fired rapidly. It makes up for this with incredible stopping power and pinpoint accuracy. One shot to the chest kills a regular enemy in Saints Row, while it takes two shots in Saints Row 2.

- In Saints Row 2, homies and enemies inside vehicles can shoot the .44 Shepherd at a much higher rate of fire than possible (at a rate similar to the VICE 9). This is particularly evident during the Fuzz activity with friendly police officers.
