    I've been to a Barber 3 or 4 times in the past 51 years. My Barber is also a very good cook and Grandmother to my Grandchildren:smile:

    Carnauba Red melts at 135 degrees. I have used it for years in rifles, and handguns, with out issue, even leaving ammo in a hot car. I don't live in Florida, but have seen triple digit temps here in SOUTHERN [smilie=1: Ohio. I can definitely...

    Long, long ago, I spent a week at the Ray Chapman Academy, in Columbia, Missouri. That week, we had a record breaking heat wave. It was something like 113 degrees and the outdoor range surface was crushed white lime stone. It was like being turned...

    I have a number of both Rugers and Smiths. If I were asked by the original poster to recommend a specific revolver for his needs, I would, without reservation, recommend the 686 Smith. I have both a CS-1, 4" and a 686 with 6" barrel. Either of them...

    Bigslug, One thing I learned after my vision went south, when you put a good red dot on the shorter tubes, the difference in barrel length becomes a moot point. It has been a half century since I owned an S&W 1950 Target and the later heavy barrel...

    Char-Gar; Knowing how much you like the .45 ACP revolvers, you sir, have my deepest sympathy! I would NOT want to be without my 625 (625-8 JM Special). However, I do understand, as I recently gifted my youngest son my treasured 5" Model of 1989...

    Outpost75 is right on point. However, I have a 625-8 JM Special with a 4" barrel. It requires clips when using .45 ACP cases. It also handles .45 Auto Rim cases perfectly. It has near perfect throats for my .452" home cast bullets. It shoots under...

    Froggie; I see absolutely NO reason, these days of solid head cases, to even consider recessed chambers. I still believe that the .32 H&R is the best caliber for reasons I have stated above. The .327 offers NOTHING that I need. .357's are...

    Green Frog; That is a brilliant post! What an excellent view of things "as they are"! I, personally, would be interested most in a field piece that would also be used a LOT on the range. My first choice would be a near copy of your 616 but...

    No disrespect intended on any of the above comments. However, what I envisioned, was simply approaching Lipsey and/or Talo regarding having a run of SS K-frame .32 H&R Magnums at a reasonable price (similar to the available Model 66 which retails...

    Hickory; A "write in" would have a much greater chance of working if Lipsey were the recipient. I would seriously doubt Smith or Ruger would respond to us. However, Lipsey has the power to order several thousand units if they could be convinced and...

    Beagle; Your post set me to thinking. It would be very hard to intelligently disagree with your "wants". I, a few short years ago, I picked up a VERY nice Model 15 at our local gun club from the sale table. It was priced really right and was in at...

    I polish all of my brass. That habit was ingrained in me from my IPSC days when my 1911's put everything on the ground. I have a large Dillon Vibratory tumbler and have a timer in my utility barn where I do my casting and tumbling. I just accumulate...

    GhostHawk; That Ruger Bisley looks like a DANDY! I predict a GOOD shooter if you are able to match the cylinder throats with your cast bullets. I had a Single Six .32 H&R with 4 5/8” barrel and it was an excellent performer with both .313” and...
