    Here's one observation:

    When vetting semi-auto pistols, we'll occasionally see them run with cheap ball range ammo, then choke with quality defensive ammo. That's pretty rare these days as modern...

    That's lovely.

    I discretely carry a 4" GP100 in a Simply Rugged Sourdough Pancake with the IWB straps. It's a smidge smaller than your Triple Lock, but not by enough that I think it would make a...

    I wouldn't at all be surprised to find out that the actor who voices The Mandalorian studied every line of dialogue Clint Eastwood delivered in the '60s and '70s.

    Can I muddy up your thread and say I've been doing the same debate, only with a 640 Pro and the SP101 Wiley Clapp?

    The AHBC is a pretty big pack. I've been considering buying one as an overnight/weekend bag, as it's just small enough to use as a carryon.

    The Marlin 1894c manual says they won't feed wadcutters, so of course I had to try it. They work "well enough" if you work the lever briskly, but it certainly isn't smooth. The ideal would be to feed...

    It's funny you should mention that. I was shooting 148 grain wadcutters out of my 18.5" Marlin 1894c today. It's probably not hearing safe enough to shoot without ear pro, but I did it a half dozen...

    I wonder if there are stability issues with the 190 grain bullet at subsonic velocities in common .30-30 twist rates? That's total speculation on my part. I also hope to see load data, and odds are...

    On a somewhat related note, Hornady has announced subsonic .30-30 ammo, and the related component bullet.

    A 16" to 20" Encore or Contender in .30-30 with a can would be a useful thing to own.

    To me, it seems like both the Golden Sabre and Gold Dot Short Barrel .357 loads are an attempt to get 9mm ballistics out of a wheel gun. That makes a bunch of sense to me for an urban/suburban carry...

    Dude.

    I always wanted to be a zamboni driver.

    One can be good AT the "helping professions" without them being good FOR you.

    Gun shows in Portland tend to be worth it just for the vast array of people watching one can accomplish.

    It's also fun to spot the plain clothes cops.
