    Yep I remember when he played for the Rangers.

    He shoulda spent less time in the weight room and more taking batting practice.

    He was a favorite with the teenage girls in the stands, that’s for sure.

    Hank Greenberg died a couple years before the gun got named. Likely where I got it from.
    Just a Hairy Special Snowflake supply clerk with no field experience, shooting an Asymetric carbine as a Try Hard. Snarky and easily butt hurt. Favorite animal is the Cape Buffalo....likely indicative of a personality disorder.

It was pretty state of the art in its day as it had Rogers grips and was carried in a Rogers SSIII holster (later under the Safariland name), and had night sights. Enjoy...
    I will freely admit to knowing exactly two things about revolvers: jack and shit. So, exactly what model is the Hebrew Hammer?

    S&W Model 25-5 in .45 Colt. Not ACP....but what is often called .45 Long Colt. Mine is a 4”. Most of our folks carried 6”.

    How was the round compared to the .357 magnum?

    It doesn’t have to expand to make a big damn hole.

    I have yet to kill anything with my m19 but I have been hammering deer with my Blackhawk/Redhawk in .45 Colt for years.

    Best all around load I've found is a 250 grain swc over 18 grains of 2400. Works great in my 16" m92 as well. Bullet should be going around 1100fps from the 4 - 4 /8" barrels.

    It really kills deer dead. I used to have crop damage permits to shoot deer in a nursery my uncle lived next to. I had 2 bang flops inside 5 seconds one time.

    I'm not sure I expect to see the same performance with a .357.

    Works on the opposite principle...huge heavy bullet at a moderate velocity. I do not recal a single shooting that required more than one round if the bad guy was hit.

    That is the one. Our Swat guys went to a SWAT school and that was a comment made to them about their guns and the loaders.
