    Ruger list these rips on their website for the wrangler so I would assume close counts. I figured much so I just need another screw then. I realize nothing is perfect and these grips look really nice and just have some space between them and the...

    Wow my grips came in today for midway USA. I was surprise when they came in a bubble pack envelope because I know Ruger packages their grips in a plastic container. When I open them I was pleasantly surprised that the grips were not damaged. They...

    The WFN GC'ed bullet cast of 16-1 alloy will give all the penetration needed or wanted. No, expansion is not "needed" but it kills quicker. That may be of benefit in thick stuff in Florida as it was in thick stuff where I hunt simply because the...
