    Ghosthawk that's a great gun! I had one years ago that I've kicked myself in the rear for selling, just a great shooter! Since Ruger released the Single Seven Bisley there seems to be a bunch of these NOS Single Six Bisley hitting the market. Out of...

    My experience with the 327 FM is that almost everyone gripes about the double action revolvers having a hard trigger pull. I started replacing springs in one of mine and polishing a little. It would shoot 32HR mags with SP primers 100% but with...

    I guess I'm a coffee snob. I buy whole beans, grind them rite before I brew them in a moka pot and make my own triple cappuccino. One a day for pennies and Starbucks gets no money to fight me with. Win win!

    Then your obviously on the other end of Tennessee! On this end a 400 yard shot is often in the cards, so, I'm looking for any inch or under at 100.

    Very interesting commentary here. I really wasn't asking about end of life from disease or aging processes. The comment about when a treatment is prolonging life, or prolonging death is a very good way to put it. There's really not much difference...

    I probably got a little wide on the 50 yard groups, they probably should have been in the .2-.3 range. I still contend the wind is a huge factor for the 22LR at a hundred though, UGE! The marksmen get separated from the shooters real quick when the...

    Is there ever a time when assisted death is permissible by God, and not murder? Do you believe everyone who commits suicide is hell bound no matter the circumstances? I'm interested to hear others theology on this matter.

    If the rifle and ammo will do. 5 or .6 at 50 yards, it'll do MOA at 100 yards, it's the conditions that's a beast when you stretch the legs of the 22LR! I've shot a few groups that would easily go under a nickel at a hundred, but only on those rare...

    Why o why would anyone want a 30 carbine in a revolver now days is beyond me. The only reason for the black hawk to exist was to use up cheep 30 carbine ammo in your little Iver Johnson and a handgun to go with it. The 327 really just steps all over...

    Are you referring to the 32 H&R magnum? I was on gun broker earlier and you'd think Ruger just came out with the 32H&R Bisley there are so many of them for sale! I wonder if it's because of the 327FM Bisley becoming available?

    For those who may not be aware, and gripe about the DA trigger pulls on 327FM DA revolvers. The proper (factory) primer is a small rifle primer that takes more umph to reliably kick off, than a small pistol magnum primer. If you do trigger jobs...
