"for middle of the night i keep a sig 220 in reach
at the front door I have a Barreta Stampede- (single action .45lc), we get snakes sometimes.
in my closet my favorite practical home defense is the M1 Carbine, almost no recoil, magazine fed,…"
"Gotta say, I'm a fan of the classics myself. Of course I've never met a gun I didn't like.
Some favorites are the M1 Garand, the Mosin Nagant, the AK-47 (in all its permutations) and the "scary black rifle" itself, the…"
"Hey Ted, I also am a Ruger GP100 fan. After carrying the Ruger Police Service Six as a Mecklenburg County Deputy Sheriff(Charlotte,NC/ now retired) for 13 years, I became very fond of Ruger double action revolvers. For my remaining…"
"I have a few guns, but my Ruger GP100 .357 is my favorite. I've had this gun for 10-15 years now. I walked into the USMC exchange to buy a glock, but walked out with the Ruger. It fits my hand perfectly and the weight/balance is great. Its…"
"Thank you kindly.
It shot a little left of center that afternoon, so I had to drift the rear sight a bit to get it where it needed to be. While not in the "tack driver' class, it is more than adequate for what it was intended.
"Corey - good shooting.
Don't stress. SASS posses are notoriously helpful and social. First shoots are often free. If you dress half way right (not just a T-shirt and ball cap) let alone bring some guns and enough ammo you…"
" I've been involved with Cowboy Fast Draw, single action revolver only and Buffalo Silhouette side matches since I got out of college, but am going to shoot my first SASS matches with an ad hoc battery this…"
"I bought my Rossi in the middle/late 1980s. The action was as smooth as my brother's Marlin 1894. After a few years of use, it smoothed out more. I'd compare it to a new Big Boy. Trigger pull was never more than 5.5 lbs, and after some…"
"Favorite was a Ruger .22 revolver. Versatile, easy to handle and maintain. That pistol gave me all the joy or Ralphie's Red Ryder BB gun. It was my rabbit slayer.
I have other firearms now. More powerful, semi…"
" I love that Plains Warrior tacked up Rossi! I need a pistol caliber levergun to complete my SASS shooting battery, and am weighing the Rossi against a Henry big boy, upon some glorious day when my budget allows for it.
" The .35 has a lot more hitting power, especially with some heavier loads. My uncle, a lefty, always hunted with an ancient Remington pump .35, and he's one of the best running deer shots I can think of. I helped…"
"Hah! Welcome to the crowd. I'm fully retired now (military and social security) and my youngest daughter is but 22 and in college. I've a grand kid only a year younger than her.
I'll tell you this: I'm a far…"
"I deal with it by keeping myself strong, fit and limber. I work at it religiously. Jack la Lanne was an idol of mine.
My intent is to remain physically able to deal with everyday things such as mow the lawn, shovel snow, pick up a…"
