    Sorry to hear about the bike crash. Non of us that ride like to hear about a fellow biker hitting the ground. Hope the healing goes smooth.

    I wish I had the heart to put frame sliders on my bikes. I think they look like roller skate wheels stuck on the side. But they are bike savers, the difference between a "totaled bike" and a "layed down at low speed bike".

    Get the 432, just because I wanna see a range report on one . Wish you a speedy recovery.

    Darkvibe: Went to my local range and rented the 432...it was painful to shoot given my rib fracture,s scapula fracture, clavicle fracture, chipped pelvis, etc The only thing that didn't hurt was the 317 .22 LR 8-shot...which I ended up buying so as not to be completely defenseless esp. here in South Fla during hurricane season, hey I got 4 kids to& my wife to protect !

    Scwebel: The black frame sliders matched the grey/black colors of my 06 GSX 1000..no damage to bike other than replacing slider and wiping my blood stains off the tank!

    Did you get the 2" or 3" barrel?

    I have a 3" barrel 317. I live in rural MN and it is the gun I grab when I go for walks thru my woods. Light. I have steel targets set-up along my walking path and get practice and exercise together.

    Did you shoot the 432 with 32 H&R Magnum? I recommend the gun to my students that are sensitive to recoil. They can practice with 32 SW Long and it has no more recoil than my 317 22 LR.

    Have a gunsmith clean up the trigger.

    hope you get better soon.

    I have to say that 32 S&W Long out of my 17oz Taurus 731 is basically nil, but i do not have the injuries that you do.

    if you can go and try the gun with 32 S&W long 90gr round nose. it is basically a pop gun with those rounds.
