thx for the ideas.

where did the idea of DEEP POCKETS  come from?   @--0--0117 @--0--0117 look what you started Bo @--0--0105 heck, i still have to work to make sure you all get your ss checks @--0--0100

i'm not going to go nuts. it's going to be a worker. i'm leaning toward a semi. i've carried the 357 on my side for 15 years and only played john wayne one time and scared the crap out of the invader. (*&^&%# (*&^&%# it will take some abuse since i use it for woods and field work, but will have very limited actual use. it's a security blanket in case i become the hunted

gut- i'm surprised you can hit a 55 gallon drum at 20 yards w/ the .410? i bought some bird shot for my .44 and it was a total spray w/ a 7" barrel. at 10 yards i would just shot around red squirrels. i saw the pattern in the snow. i was really disappointed

Yari, for a camp gun the Taurus "Judge" public defender is perfect. You have choices, .410 shotgun ammo, the defender ammo has 3 copper discs and "00" buckshot, at 20 yards all shot will cut through a 55 gal steel barrel, (been there, done that) OR you can use the .45 ACP ammo in hollow point or the defender ammo that is available. Regular .410 ammo in 7 or 8 shot game loads are good also for snakes, all the others will take down a bear at 40 yards and under. If you need more than 5 shots you better be fast on your feet. LOL  (*&^&%#

I have a stainless steel Rossi five shot revolver with 2" barrel I keep in the tractor.  Nice little gun.

Maybe in a week, it will start to feel like home again...have sooo many projects in the pipeline....

Well, I got a major accomplishment completed today, got the Camry back in the garage, we have been using it's side of the garage as a lay down area....

But have discovered a downside to the flood, 7 of my Browning Game Trail Camera's are missing!! hopefully I will find them is some remote location, but I am down to a couple of area where my stuff is!! So far the Mrs. has been saying could they be here or there, and as the process continues and these areas are uncovered, there are no game trail camera's in those areas!!! It beginning to look like they are gone......along with 12 CD's, their covers are still in there but the CD's themselves are gone....the several hundred that I have left are all guys know what I am thinking about this....

Its either the ServPro guys, there were 6 guys over here in the 5 days they were here.  Or it could have been the Mexican Crew who was doing the roof of the house. They were here and gone in one day...several times I had to leave the area and could not watch them.

But besides the downside of this effort, it is going together rather well...slower than my wife wants its to. So she was surprised when I move the Camry back into the garage....we are waiting for a couple of more shelves before we can complete the move back into the gun room......

Well, you could sell your 357 ammo to your sister . . .    ##$%#12    Only if you're on good terms with her though . . .

Taurus is probably the strongest in the lower end of the price range for .357 revolvers.  Since you have really deep pockets (isn't that what Bo said?) you could go drop a couple grand on a Colt Python.  I have a S&W 686 with a 5" barrel - really a nice handling & nice shooting gun if you don't mind a little extra weight.  A bit higher than a Taurus but still in three digits unlike the Python.  Ruger's GP100 is also an option at a similar price to a 686.

But then if you open the semi auto can 0' worms, you got choices galore in calibers, brands, frame sizes . . . .

Yari - here's a bit of info cut from a Wikipedia page about Taurus.  I knew there was some affiliation between the two brands but didn't really understand what it was.

In 1997 Forjas Taurus purchased the rights & equipment to manufacture Rossi brand revolvers. They currently manufacture three .38 Special models and four .357 Magnum models under the Rossi name, manufactured in São Leopoldo, Brazil.

the first 3 shops i checked said "sold out". either they are limited production or just not widely carried.

my dad forced my hand this weekend. he took the 357 back that i was using for a cabin sidearm to give to my sister.(this sill baffles me for many reason i won't get into) now i'm seriously in the market for a cabin pistol. i'm long on 357 shells, but i'm leaning toward a semi.

Day 80 and I moved the car back into the garage...yippie! The Camry was smiling and started making funny noises...LOL...but today is a milestone sort of speak. I moved the car in and went to Northern and bought a couple of Dollies for the totes that contain the gun power. Had some of those 27 gallon Black with Yellow top totes that during the flood put the gun powder in something I can grab and not blow up the neighborhood during a fire...something I can grab and throw out in the will be hard on the old back but think I can do it....put both totes of gunpowder on dollies that rolled underneath the easy and quick.....

Yes I donated 60's stereo equipment some HK tube amps and Sherwood tube receivers and some 80's Yamaha Integrated Amp and Tuner to make room for the totes and other small containers. Will have to get another steel shelves like shown in the picture below one more dolly and store the third of 4 totes on slowly but surely it looks like we are getting trip to HD or Lowe's for the shelves and Northern for another dolly, that is where I got the two today from....If I put the 4th tote on a rug that slides, then I will be able to put another small totes on top of it and use it as well....
