  1. The talking heads keep repeating over and over that 95% of gun owners agree on this and 87% of gun owners want that and I was just wondering who on this forum was a part of a recent poll on gun control. They didn't ask me.
  2. I have a Bisley Vaquero in .357 magnum. I like the Bisley because the hammer spur is lowered so you don't have to reach for it with your thumb. It also has a widened trigger. The sights are not adjustable but how often do you adjust the sights on your handgun? The fixed sights are dead on. I used it to win the company pistol shoot a few yeas ago. You can shot hot .357 loads until the gun is too hot to reload. You can iron your shirts with it while you wait for it to cool down. What ever single action you decide on, you are going to love it. I like to put on my Stetson and my Old El Paso Cheyanne rig and run around the house in my underwear going "Yippi Ki aye Ki Yaye!"
  3. I was using muzzle energy as a comparison, which doesn't really equate to stopping power all the time. I am seeing 250 ft/lbs on some 380 ammo but that's taken with a grain of salt. I have seen claims that 380+p have muzzle energy upward toward 300 ft/lbs. Underwood 90gr +P claims 288 ft/lbs. Buffalo Bore has a 80 grain that claims 289 ft/lbs and their 100 gr +P is at 294 ft/lbs But you know what I have learned about the wacky world of ballistics?......
  4. I have a Smith and Wesson model 36. It is a great little 5 shot snubby. What's the biggest complaint from people after they shoot a snub nosed 38. "It's too snappy!" Enter the Pitbull 380. A six shot cylinder, three inch barrel and the patented ejector for ACP casings, plus the 380 has comparable ballistics to the 38. That was my justification for buying one any how. I picked it up this morning and had a chance to run a few rounds through it. I was surprised at how smooth the DA trigger pull was and the cylinder gap is next to nothing. The lock up could have been a little tighter but it is within my tolerance. The first shot I thought was a squib accept for the hole in the target. No recoil! It sounded kind of muffled too. Once I got the front site picture right I was able to make one jagged hole at around 5 yards in single action and keeping a nice saucer size group in double action. The recoil was so low I could crank out 6 rounds quicker than I could fire 3 rounds from my 38 special. I just cannot believe that this little low recoil puppy has similar stopping power to my 38 special but I have it loaded with 380 +P and will start carrying it. 380 +P, that sounds ridicules. Kind of like a .22 short magnum. My hope is that my wife will be able to trade in her 22 and use this little pitpuppy but I might just keep it myself. I have always wanted a Charter Arms wheel gun.
  5. A lady walks into court, accused of beating her husband with his guitars. The judge asks "First offender?" She said "No, first the Gibson, then the Fender." Ah Cha Cha
  6. Thanks for the replies! I purchased the Sig in October of 2018. The serial number is 66A220###. The ammo I was shooting was not Remington but Winchester 124 grain FMJs. I bought 1000 rounds when they were on sale. The three light strike rounds were recycled after I examined them and all of them fired on the second try. My local gun shop has excellent service. I bought the Diamondback 380 from him, it broke so they sent me another one, it broke so they sent me another one and it was unreliable so Clay at Fuquay Guns gave me $300 for it, even though he was selling them for $275. I put the $300 down on a …..Sig P238. That little pistol is a honey! It is what I carry most of the time with a S&W snubby as a back up.
  7. I have shot two boxes of Remington target loads through my new P365. That is 100 rounds. Of that 100 rounds I have had three light primer strikes and one failure to eject. WTH! I sold my Ruger LC9s when I bought t his Sig. My LC9s that has never failed to fire. My Glock has never failed to fire. My Colt 1911 has never failed! This is the worst experience I have had with a pistol since that Diamondback 380 (it should be called the Moneyback 380). Should I send it back to SIG or feed more ammo through it? If this pistol is ammo sensitive I will get rid of it.
  8. I wish we still had a battleship. I know they are obsolete but they still have a fear factor. I friend of mine saw the New Jersey firing broadsides off the coast of Viet Nam. He was on the Valley Forge, (a helicopter landing ship. It was the last US Navy aircraft carrier to qualify for shore bombardment with her 5 inch guns}. The Marines said the VC would scatter whenever the New Jersey sailed up.
  9. Go to Google maps and search for Shahid Bahonar Port. It is in the Straights of Hormuz. You can see their navy including their fast attack subs and a gaggle of midget subs. I tried to post the link but Google rejected it. I don't know where the got the midgets. Of course as soon as you do the search some zit faced kid in a sub-basement at Langley is going to flag you...….
  10. I don't know why but I have a burning desire for a Colt King Cobra. Somebody slap me! Talk me out of it or talk me into it. Or just talk.....
  11. It has been a while since I lived in Nashville but, unless it has changed your best bet is from downtown and south. Nashville caters to tourists and Vanderbilt Campus is down there so if you stay in the touristy areas you'll be OK. Avoid any hotel that has a razor wire fence around it. I have found that whenever I get lost in a big city I always wind up in the bad part of town. Nashville is a fun town. https://www.aol.com/2010/10/05/safe-and-dangerous-places-in-nashville/ My great grandfather went to Nashville in 1864. He stayed less than a mile away from where I lived. In Rebout #4 with Lumsden's battery. He wasn't there for very long, but he gave'm plenty of ball and shot. His name was Pvt Isaac Mason and he lived to prosper after the war. He built a house made by putting two slave cabins together. The house still stands in Stockton Alabama. (Sorry to get off topic)
  12. I wear this one at Three O'clock so I can grab the spare magazine with my left hand. I have started carrying OWB with a canted holster that sets up high. Harold at Red Cent will ask you how you are going to wear it and make it to fit you. He made me these holsters and a beefy leather belt that is 1/4" thick, for a great price. This is the fifth holster he has made for me so far. You can check out his work on his web site. He is well known in North Carolina. https://www.redcentcustomleather.com/
  13. The man at Red Cent Custom Leather wasn't happy with the quality of the leather on the black holster so he sent me another free of charge. I asked him for this holster with an integral magazine pouch. It is canted, sets up high and tight. Now if I can just get my P-365 broke in...……...

    1911 Information

    If you are only going to have one 1911, then get one with the prancing pony on the slide. I bought a Colt 1911 about ten years ago for less than $700. The first few magazines had some failures to eject but the next 1000 or so rounds have been flawless. NOTE: I am in no way an expert on 1911s. I only own one and I wanted a Colt.
