    Exactly, although like gun laws everywhere, it only hampers the law abiding!

    By the way, that's a sweet looking pistol.

    Practical addition for practical totin' use and yummy too!

    Looks like some sort of Forum collaboration going on here between Texas and Kentucky.

    Everybody's gonna have .38 Supers before I can get around to it.

    Be different, buy a Super .38 ACP.

    Seems like Kentucky and Texas have always had connections of sorts, especially when it comes to guns and freedom!

    IF, I didnít have to keep my gun money in pocket to pay for whatever the wife will be choosing, that sweet little muy hermosa 38 Super would have been mine!

    So, Brian, it very well could come down to a race between us as that last pistolero to acquire the Super:)

Sounded like a nice deal as the price was well under anything else Iíd seen online, I asked about return policy and agreed to the terms and told her to send it over!

    Got it yesterday and I was just a bit surprised! What she didnít tell me was itís a TALO edition! Has the Novak sites, upgraded trigger, and so forth. The real surprise is itís the Army TALO edition, did not expect it to be green! I didnít even think to ask for a photo, I expected it to be like the rest of the LW guns and have a blue slide and aluminum frame. I was close, it has a blue slide!

    It wasnít a safe queen but whoever had it before took care of it and did a really good job cleaning it up, not a speck of dirt to be seen.
    Overall Iím very happy with the gun and Buds. SGAmmo delivered today so should be able to do a range report this weekend.

    Ohhh you Devil you!! THAT is a NICE piece! Great carry item too!..... The 357 Sig of "olden days" ...........Look for a 9MM Barrel for it...............

    The Store recently got a Caspian Commander size 38 Super in a Trade... I snagged it and it's on paid hold at this time... Gotta love those "OLDER" and "OBSCURE" calibers..... NOT outdated by any means!

    There's 600 total made and there are 4 in Louisiana, I have two of them. Shoots beautifully and next to no recoil. Great little pistol, perfect for summertime carry
    You are gonna love it!

    Wicked Felina sounds better than mean Brunhilda too . The Super has something in the neighborhood of 200 love songs attached to it there. I just love my Taco shooters .
