    Sample of one - my brother had a mid 1980s model 65.
    It never failed, exactly. But it did manage to go out of time and develop end shake repeatedly while sitting in a drawer between range trips.

    These are by far the most "one size fits most" grip solution I have found. My Model 66 has worn these grips since 1991, and practically every one who has ever handled or fired this revolver preferred...

    I am sure that there are a good number (though likely dwindling daily) of informers, spotters, double-agents, Shi'a militia dead-enders, and what-have-you giving accurate target damage assessment...

    As a soundtrack accompaniment, along with the crowd yelling I hear a bunch of dogs barking, hubcaps clattering, a couple of .38s touching off, and a set of bagpipe drones starting up, out of tune, of...

    Godspeed, you Soldiers, Sailors, Marines, & Airmen.

    I'd be happy if Colt's Manufacturing Company were to gain a lot of civilian customers and become more viable as a company. Plus, there will be more large refined American revolvers in the wild.

    No, the RIP was for Mr. Reichard.
    I too have lost track of George. I hope he is well.

    He also taught me to shoot; and all the revolvers I...

    Probably the only political tune this New York-based, Memphis-inspired band ever did. They were living in London, UK at the time.

    This is about as necro-posting as I have ever done in 20+ years of Internet presence, but I have watched a good armorer (then Sr Deputy George Knox, San Francisco Sheriff's Department, circa 1988)...

    Blues has it right. It won't be carried for long, either.
    I intend to keep it in good shape for my grandkids.

    And my regards and thanks to Sergeant Major Padgett, too.
  20. Who do we like for non-kydex J frame pocket holsters?

    I am starting the process of learning to pocket carry. My current piece is a c. 1980 Model 36 no-dash; it has a lot of family history, and the bluing is in pretty good condition for a 40-year-old...

    The 1989-90 640 .38 Centennials were my intro to modern J-frames. I would happily carry one in any of the barrel lengths they offered.

    Dang, George (May I call you George?) I've seen posts of yours that exhibit an acerbic slant, but never quite so savage nor so bitterly funny. Thanks for that.
