I really do want that j frame. He has two; one nickel and one blue. I hate myself of letting it go!
I raised so much Cain on your other thread that I wasn't about to fall for the "plugged nickel" reference--I remembered you were going to start a thread on your repaired gun. She will shoot, there's no doubt about it.
My only concern is, why'd you let the Mod. 36 get away? I look forward to a thread on that gun. . .no disrespect to your Glock 27, but you can replace it anytime. (C'mon, you know you want it. . .)
We are like the old soldiers who just couldn't get all hot & bothered about the M1, so they hung onto their '03 Springfields as long as they could. Maybe a better analogy is the M14 vs. the M16. My brother was in a Marine infantry battalion in Hawaii in early '67 before going to 3/9 at Con Thien in September. He had scored 2nd in his battalion with the M14, and then the M16 they handed him upon arrival in a combat zone was effectively a single shot. So many jams that he kept an assembled cleaning rod stuck in the handguard so he could ram out the stuck casing after every shot. Said he felt like Daniel Boone or Davy Crockett. He later "upgraded" to a smooth-functioning M16, but still has a soft spot for the M14 almost 50 years later.
I look forward to a future thread in which you stack the 65 and 36, fire simultaneously at about 3-7 yards, and show us targets about as good as these I have fooled around with such things on occasion, and the similarity in action makes it perfectly natural to pull both triggers simultaneously and get hits on two separate targets, up close, with both targets fairly close together (like a 2-on-1 robbery or assault might develop). Not generally the most practical technique, of course, but it could come in handy. To stack one gun high and one low and point-shoot a single close target is easy: effectively 2 trigger pulls, 4 holes in target. To "cover" two BG's simultaneously in a parking lot at night would give both of them 5-6 reasons to consider changing jobs, rather than just the unlucky joker facing your single gun.
Heck I might call and see if they are open today !
