    Just a little thing I shoot. My Ruger 454 Alaskan. Its been said it sounds close to a small nuke when I fire it off.

    Built like a tank and fun factor is off the scale. (and so is the pain after about 20 rounds.)

    I carry an Sp101 in 357 an awful lot, I have two other pistols and love them both. I wouldn't trade or sell either of my pistols but I carry my snubbie more than anything else I own. I carry two speed loaders and I never feel under gunned. I don't have to mess with loading or unloading magazines all I have to do is put the SP in my holster and go. Very convenient and potent. The only drawback to a snub is ammunition capacity, and I wonder if that matters much, in a defensive scenario 5 rounds of 357 should do the trick. Anothet thing to consider a 357 snubbie is extremely versatile in winter i can use fullhouse 357 loads and in spring and summer when clothing is lighter 38special or 38+p can be used.

    I am interested in a 9mm snubby but have heard bad things about Taurus quality. Have you had any problems?

    None thus far approaching 200 rds in the past few days. But hardly a long term test I know. The good thing about revolvers is they can pretty much be diagnosed and assed without shooting one if you have it in your hands.

    As to 9mm in a snubby, I've been testing an assortment of loads and its really surprising by how wide a margin 9x19 outclasses 38spl coming right up to 357 magnum in terms of velocity. Best of all though it does this with a fraction of the recoil, flash and blast of 357 in a short bbl.

    Here's a more complete report on my 905

    Cool

    After picking up a Model 60 a few weeks ago I ordered a set of Eagle Secret Service grips for it.

    My hand is a bit large for the factory j-frame grips and these new grips make the fit just right.

    The front strap is covered like a t-grip with the back strap and butt left open.

    The side panels add just enough girth to fill my hand and the rosewood adds a little pop to the Model 60.

    In an era of high capacity polymer semi-autos the S&W j-frame remains a firearms classic.

    Here's my latest score.

    A 1st generation Charter Arms Undercover .38 from their Bridgeport factory. Don't know when it was made, but the Bridgeport guns ran from 1965 to 1974, IIRC.

    This little gun looks like it spent the last 40 or so years in somebody's sock drawer, because it's in fantastic shape. All I had to do was clean it up because there was old lint and dust all over it.

    Well lowercase; that one's interesting because of its condition. Had a good friend years ago with one just like it. I shot it on occasion and it gave a reasonable performance.
