Accuracy, on the other hand... it's a snub-nosed revolver, and "hammerless" DAO at that. It's accurate enough, but if you actually need to use the sights, it's the wrong gun for the job. That said, I recently replaced the front ramp with a fiber optic dot. Haven't had a chance to shoot with the new sight, but it definitely points faster.



Yep! Can't beat the pants-wetting factor. The only thing scarier than hearing that "shuck-shuck" is the muzzle blast itself. :-)

Personally, I love the versatility of a 12ga, in that you can use the same gun to bag anything from dove to elk. A full load of buckshot in an 870 is roughly equivalent to a brick of pistol ammunition, making it an exceptionally great teaching aid for instructing bad guys on the fine art of collapsing in a bloody heap on the floor.
I replaced the front sight of my LCR with a Hi-Vis Sight and it works well. I have also practiced with my LCR quite a bit. My husband and I both have an LCR. At 7 yards, my husband can put all 5 in a 4-6 inch cluster and I can put all 5 in an 8-9 inch cluster.He can put all 5 in a silhouette at 25 yards. Pretty accurate for a snub nose I would say.

My current favorite rifle is my Mosin. Can't beat a rifle as tall as you that will shoot a mile and a half and double as a pole vault stick!

Favorite pistol is my GP-100, but I did just order an RIA 1911 and can bail it out of gun jail in 10 days so we'll see what happens

You can't say you are going to pick up a new gun and not tell us what it is.

Stag .223 AR-15 tactical. My SHTF weapon!

The lower picture is one of my son's gun. As he adds to his, I get his leftovers!

I own 2 pistols
-S&W SW40VE that I like alot. It's not high end but I've run at least a couple thousand rounds (half of them re-loads) through it without a hickup.
-An antique H&R model 999 .22 cal. 9 shot, top break revolver w/6" barrel. Very early example, 1929 vintage by it's serial number, it has a ducks bill frame with a 1 piece walnut handle that slips over. Most had 2 piece grips. Very nice to look at as well. Both are my favorites.

Take care....
