    Texas by God,

    I can attest to that FACT. = I once carried a Walther PPK in .32ACP & that I carried every day in my BDU trousers pocket & loaded with "high-speed" JHP. NEVER felt "under-armed", when I carried it, either.

    These days, my little S&W Shield in 9x19mm (NOT much bigger than a PPK) is my EDC piece & I feel "nekkid" without it on my belt. = HACKS ME OFF when I go onto post & cannot lawfully carry it.
    (The SAFEST place for my handgun is in the holster & on my belt, imo.)

    yours, tex

    Not saying the 9mm isn't an effective worthy weapon ,I just prefer my .45ACP. It's been putting bad guys to rest for well over 100 years. - CASTER
    Betcha didn't know that 9mm has been been giving bad guys dirt naps for about 8 years longer than the 45! I think it came out in around 1903

    .455 Eley, also known as the .455 Webley in a Colt New Service from 1915 and the .250-3000 Savage in a 1950's Model 99F. Both are surprisingly accurate!

    Dad converted his .219 zipper custom target rifle to a more common caliber of 225 Winchester in the good ole days. "Strike Two!" Lol

    My current favorite is .30-40 KRAG, also playing with a Stevens lever action chambered in --- CAL .30-30 REM --- but I just shoot plain old .30 Rem in it. It's marked STEVENS HIGH POWER , model 425, very accurate with cast loads.

    Here is one no one else will mention... .41 Swiss Rimfire. I hope someday to make the brass drawing tools to start making these.

    And so little love for the venerable .43 Spanish....... Currently my favorite loading bench BP torture device. Both in a RB and Peabody Military Rifle.

    In the last week I watched two movies. "The Man Who Would be King" and "Zulu". Both were in the same relative time period. Both had lots and lots of Martini's. There must be a lot of those floating around England and Europe yet. Would be a nice thing to plink with.
