  1. I picked a pair of gloves today at Home Depot made by Milwaukee. Thin suede on the finger tips with another layer leather on the side closest to the cylinder. A little padding on the palm
  2. As far as velocity goes. I chrono tested the same load off 44 mag from a 6”, 10” and a 1895 marlin the velocity went up as the barrel length went up. Gained about 200 FPS from short to long.
  3. I shaved the guard on both mine. Helped a lot.
  4. Anyone use them? My hands have been used and abused over the years and it’s catching up to me. Need some recommendations

    The new one came in today. Just have to wait while the feel good law period is over. About two weeks.

    I called my lgs to have them send an ffl to the dealer I got it off of and he told me they just sold one like I bought for 800. I paid 700 for mine. There’s one on there now, blued for 515.00 with 4 days left. One can find the pistol pack, 3-4 barrels for 1100-1700. They are very nice pistols, if you do your part, they are very accurate! With my first dw in 357 mag I could bounce pop cans around at 75 yards and keep most shots on sheet of printer paper at 125 yards. Of course back then I was shooting close to 300-500 rounds a week and that gun was like another hand.

    No. It’s trash. Frame was blown all the hell and cracked/broke in a couple spots. I just won a Dan Wesson, 8” vent rib in stainless for a decent price though 😁 it should be here in few days. It will be a couple weeks till I can post pics have to go through the hoops.

    Well CRAP!!!!!!

    Had it about 3 years. I salvaged what I could and now I’m looking for another. The rest went in the trash.

    Well CRAP!!!!!!

    Went shooting today, first since the end of June. Everything was going smooth. Put a couple boxes through the 1911, 50 rounds or so through the 22 pistol, picked up the Dan Wesson 44 and was happily banging away at a rock on the hillside. Got about 25 rounds down range when it all went to hell. The only thing I can figure is the one cylinder that was always sticky, had a crack in it and it finally let go. The load, while not light, was nowhere near max. I’ve always double checked the charge using a bright light. Checked the powder dispenser every row, followed all the safety rules. It was my favorite pistol too.
  12. Yup. I was also in another wreck when I was 21. The damage from that and the most recent one is catching up to me. A friend here at work had me try his new seat for his bike and as soon as I sat down it felt like my hip was dislocating. I’m thinking I may have some extra bone growth where the screws went in. I can lay on that side on a hard mattress for about 2 minutes and I have to roll over.
  13. I prefer a shoulder holster. Not so good for the summer, but with my hip on my strong side, it's about my only option. Thought about a small of the back carry. Any opinions on that?
  14. I've fallen asleep with a nicotine patch on and have some really weird vivid dreams. I wake up and think "WTF was that all about?!?!"

    In my line of work, inspecting and repairing R/R passenger cars, I have to start my day by saying "No matter how big an asshole or bitch the people on my cars are, somebody somewhere loves them" Because if I miss something and it causes a derailment and they get killed, I have to live with that. In your line of work, you see people at the worst time of their life. Whether it's from a bad decision or just plain bad luck, it's not a good time for them. I can understand your point of view. Do I like people in general? Well... let's say I like you guys on here and leave it at that. I'm a big time loner, happy to be by myself. I'm pretty sure it's from conditioning. My first wife drove away all my friends. This wife works so much I seldom see her when I'm in the mood to do something. My work schedule makes it hard to do anything with the few people I call friends.
