    I guess I was too lazy to write the 2 extra letters in Murphy. As far as the 4" 45, I had looked high and low for a 4" nickle 25-5 but I just couldn't find one that didn't require a first born as a payment. I finally found one in about 98% for $850...

    That SBH Bisley is a lot more comfortable to shoot without the square trigger guard for me. My middle finger would be numb from a range session with it. Those are good looking stocks on those two Randy

    Thanks for the well wishes. I am a pretty good PT'er. 1: because I am afraid not to and 2: because I have got fish to catch! I am giving these catfish a break right now but they are in trouble this fall.

    My son bought one of the same guns and he had to send his back to Ruger and have another from sight out in it. No problems and the turn around time is quick.

    I just got out of surgery yesterday at 11:00 and the therapist had me walk about 300’ this morning. Pain is not bad, about 3 or 4 on the 10 scale. Going home this afternoon.

    Yep, my surgeon uses staples on the incision. They come out pretty easy once they are cut in the middle.

    1 1/2" for 10 shots is pretty darn good. It is a realistic indicator of what to expect from a rifle. The only problem is that they are usually harder to boast about because they get bigger that 3 or 5 shot groups-in most of my guns anyway. I hate...

    I don't know how good/bad your vision is but I'm in your camp with not wanting to scope that rifle. I put a Skinner Express sight, F/R, and it works for me. I have had my share of eye problems and if I concentrate, use the right size aperture rear...

    Lucky you! The accuracy of the newer Mini's is better than the older ones. My gunsmith says that if you put a .040 or .045 gas port in them to reduce the violent ejection of brass, that they are more accurate. Keep us posted on how you like the gun.
