    I examined a new Python at my lgs. In this specimen the action was outstanding. However, at the muzzle I saw numerous deep tool marks which indicated reamer chatter. Polishing would not remove these....

    They don't care. Nobody cares. The driver lost somebody's truck and trailer. He's a dead man.

    I disagree about the premise of the thread. RJ joined the discussion post number 23. Despite being a nice guy, he did not establish the thread's theme. To use his term, he "jumped in".

    Logic rules out the .45 ACP round for most of us. Knowledge members made the case. During the last 35 years reliable 9mm pistols and effective defense ammo have become available. In recent...

    Of course not. Had I stated it better, I would have said that many of us lack skills to defeat an opponent in grappling contest. Though you inferred that I implied it was a collegiate contest, such...

    Being too old to be taken seriously, I would prefer a heel magazine release such as seen on P-38's and other handguns.

    Metallurgy has everything to do with a handgun's ability to handle pressures and not necessarily thickness of the cylinder or chamber as in the case of pistols. Of course, both are variables. In...
