    Think i have a new obsession!

    I have been thinking about getting a new S&W Model 22 in 45 ACP case hardened. Would be nice to shoot my reloads out of. Here is a Hickock video of the gun. Talk about beautiful old school... too bad it does not come without the lock. He mentions this as 1950... but i have read 1917 elsewhere?????? Would not want to CCW it, but would be nice to plink with, and to just plain enjoy. Bunker http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m55H6oR-D50

    Looks like it would make a good woods gun...

    My next question to you Jeff is do you make a holster for this gun? I am so pleased with my many j frame holsters that you have made for me. I use them whenever i do carry. Bunker

    Would make a tremendous home defense handgun. The .45 ACP works really well when used in a revolver. If a fellow doesn't wish to deal with moon clips then .45 Auto Rim gives typical straight-walled revolver cartridge headspace/ejection characteristics.
