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 you can find some good deals on Ruger Blackhawks in .357 if you go with another wheel gun. I just saw one on an auction site start at 300.00 first bid and the pistol looked great, it had some use marks on it but not bad- Just an idea.

I remember when Rossi use to be an big importer of wheel pistols, and I won a few of them. Bought the before the 97 sale to Taurus.....Like many of you I don't not have a problem with the pistols, I use to reload my pistol ammo (still have some of the dies and powder around) but today I don't reload my own pistols and have switched to Standard ammo for them....I won one each of them - a 38 Special and a 357 Mag...

Flint, CCI has known about the bird shot problem with their Shot Shell Ammo line for years, so now they have come out with #4 shot that will penetrate a lot deeper than the old bird shot did, I have already switch the ammo in all of my Wheel revolvers that I have at strategic location around the house. Also have purchase 3 judges and a public defender all of them have the special ammo with disc and shot in them....wish they made a 2" version for them, but my first judge has a 6.5" barrel, good enough to do some rabbit hunting with it...LOL, but did shoot some #6 in it and the range was surprisingly good with it....but the other two Judges (5 shot) are the standard 3" barrel and the S&W Public Defender (6 shot) has the standard 3" long barrel configuration....Check out the available ammo for the wheel guns....
