    I wish I could wake up tomorrow to a shipping container of ammo in my driveway.

    Lol.

    .357mag recoil isn't that bad or maybe the weight of the GP100 made recoil seem tolerable.

    Why in the hell is the Trigger pull on the GP100 so damn heavy?

    Because the weapon is heavy....

    I haven't had the pleasure of shooting one yet but it sure is pretty. I really can't think of one bad I've heard about it.

    If you don't mind me asking, what did you pay for yours? I've never ever seen one in a LGS.

    Shoot 357 from a SW686, or a SW629; both are heavier guns and tame the 357 well. They are a joy to shoot, no kidding, in 357. As well, you won't even feel 38 special, or 38 wadcutters. The 686 is my favorite in 3 or 4".

    It's one of the few revolvers that I would tell anyone: 1) Definitely buy one, you will NOT be sorry; 2) It's worth every penny of the $800 to $1k price tag; 3) It'll become a favorite shooter and hunting backup gun.

    I don't say that about revolvers much, but this one surely is a cut above - IMO. Many will agree. I don't know too many who don't, interestingly.

    PS: I had to edit to say, this is applicable to current revolvers, and is not inclusive of my favorite gun (not ccw gun, but still my favorite), the Single Action Army by Colt. NO, immitations are not Colts - don't even go there. LOL.

    Smoke bullets, a projectile fired from a rifle cartridge that, upon impact creates a sizeable cloud of smoke

    A chalk bullet (if such a thing is feasable)?

    Does it draw a chalk outline upon impact?

    I imagine it would turn into a big puff of powder when it hits and probably leave a clear indication of where it hit.
    My question would be could it remain intact until hitting the target or leaving pieces in the barrrel.

    I feel I NEVER get to shoot enough.

    If I could get paid to train and shoot firearms, I believe that would be my dream job.

    I have to go to work now, I wish my job was shooting.
