    I am very pleased with it. Best I remember it was about 9 months, but well worth it. I now have a 44 special 5 inch factory Ruger as well. Love the medium frame revolvers, especially those starting with a 4 :) I will probably hunt with the 44 some...

    I will be hunting with my Clements 41 Special this year. I made me a walking stick with a hand loop, gotta see how I like the combination. It makes for a nice walk in the woods:)

    I agree that gage is pretty meaningless, but 28s are expensive factory and hulls for reloading ar scarce. I will use the 410 for specific instances but same issue with ammo cost. I also never use or encourage 1 1/8 loads for clays, have shot too...

    Great post, lots of truth. I would add that the comb height is a major concern for most youth and many adult ladies. If the comb is too low their “shooting” eye will drop below the reciever and they will be using the off side eye, unknowingly. Worse...

    44 special would be my vote as well. Beats out the mag in my opinion due to the existence of Bulldogs, M696, and now Gp100s. Nothing in my area that a Skeeter load won’t accomplish that a full bore 44 mag will. Out west, I might feel differently. I...

    That 20ga doesn’t look new. It still wears some scars, but it now looks well care for. The Remington guns from the teens and 20s were rust blues. Look at original condition m14 rifles and M17 shotguns, that finish wears very well. And it doesn’t...

    I hate the things! My dive knife was half serrated, I know they cut rope better. I donít cut much rope, when I do the sharp plain edge does fine. Most of what I do with a knife a normal grind is best, and way easier to touch up. I have been known to...

    I like carbon steel, but top end stainless is ok in a kitchen or pocketknife, well sometimes. I like the easy touch up on carbon steels and Damascus. Actually the quality most recognized for stainless is a turnoff for me. I like the real patina that...

    Can’t answer your specific question, from experience. I can tell you that a hollowpointed 379449 clone will go end to end thru a Tennessee deer, shattering the ball at the hip joint before exiting. I would think it would do the job you ask, but...

    I have an RG 2 version with GC. I like it, used it on a deer last fall out of a 6 inch 41 special. Using 13.(canít remember) of 2400 it was running 1100+ when I shot it over a chronograph this spring. Was plenty and then some for the deer, alloy was...

    I think you will be well pleased with the rust blue finish. I have done several including 2 Smith M36 snubs. I carry one of the 36s when I wade fish and after several years it shows no deterioration of the finish. It gets wet and stays wet for hours...

    Another nice shot with a fine rifle, and cartridge! That is some beautiful country, so different from our Tennessee big woods. Collecting fine older rifles is nice, hunting with them is the icing on the cake. ��

    I have to agree, the Yildiz folder is a great little gun, all 3.3 lbs of it. Handles wonderfully and makes a cool walking around gun just as they built it. If you get one to convert to a rifle, two things to know. First, just buy two, you will still...

    There is an alloy calculator in the sticky threads. Cast some solids with a good flat like a WFN or. 429421 and go kill a deer. That allow you have is fine, I would just not use it with a deep hp. It probably won’t expand (429421) but the deer won’t...

    In that alloy I would use the cup pin or solid. That high ratio of antimony to tin will, in my opinion, fracture the petals off the deep hp leaving you less mass for penetration. Might be fine, might not if you hit a major shoulder bone depending......
