    I know this is the meme thread, but this is the very scenario that many 80s and 90s movies start out with and end with an angry and distraught father/husband fighting a one-man war against a cartel....

    When I had a 4" 629, I used about 6gr Trailboss with a 250gr SWC as my "lite" load. It was "shoot all day" light and accurate too. Unique would work as well.

    I built one a couple years ago (don't recall if I finished it in 2018 or 2019, but it was well before Covid). I used Glock small parts, an aftermarket trigger (that had been in use in my G19...

    Watched Nobody this weekend. Enjoyable flick with some funny lines. Not as good as a typical John Wick movie though.

    Favorite line (spoken to protagonist's elderly father):

    That's why I left a job "inside the beltway" in 2010 and never looked back. Now I wouldn't consider a job that far "in". Luckily my work (current job and general industry) is WFH-friendly. Once my...

    Yup. I reload and have/had a nice light load for 44 (250gr SWC with 7gr Trail Boss), but if I'm going to download 44, I'm essentially duplicating what I shoot in my 625 (230gr RN over a light load...

    You guys are making me miss my 629. It was getting too much for my elbows though. At least I know it's in good hands. I still have my 625 and 25-5, both 4" barrels. The 25-5 is too pretty to be...

    We've had a 2007 Honda Odyssey EX-L since 2010 (bought with 34k on the odometer). It's a nice driving vehicle with plenty of pep, even at 174k miles. However, I'm not impressed with the durability....

    Snake Guns

    I'm unclear on the need for a dedicated snake gun. The one time I needed to shoot a snake, I did so from about 4' away using Speer 38spec shot shells out of a 4" GP100. One shot nearly decapitated...

    +1 to no Baofengs. The only good thing about them is they're cheap. One can get good used Japanese radios for nearly the same price (I paid $50 for my Icom IC-V8, a far superior radio).
