Ya' know, I had this whole long rant typed out and just deleted it. We don't all have to agree on everything all the time....I'll leave it at that.

And what does being a hillbilly have to do with gun safety? When was the last time you heard of a hillbilly getting shot by accident or one of their kids finding a "hidden" gun of their parents and hurting themselves or one of their friends. I was brought up in a hunting family and firearms of all sorts were common place. We were taught from a very very young age that they were not toys and weren't to be messed with. When I was old enough I was taught how to properly handle and shoot all types of firearms. That's all I was really sayin' with the "hillbilly" comment.

Took the words outta my mouth

I tried several times earlier today to post but the cybergods didn't receive my offering apparently.

.357 was the choice of law enforcement agencies and officers for many years. I carried my S&W model 28 as long as I could, until the department finally made us switch to .40 Glocks. Even though my shooting score increased a bit and the gun proved reliable, I still preferred/prefer my .357.

Simple, I'd guess the 38 Special was the longest serving caliber in US history. I was just talking about this the other day on another board. My state trooper uncle carried a 357 for most of his career and vehemently argued against forcing the 'old timers' to adopt semi-automatics. My city police chief uncle still carries the S&W Model 66 he bought when he joined the Police back in 73-74.

It was a hard transition, that is for sure. I just didn't feel dressed for work without that boat anchor weighing me down. Laughing

Love the engraving. I always wanted to get that done on a gun of mine, but so far haven't.

That's a TALO special edition Ruger SP101 357mag. They made about 1000 of them. It's one of three firearms I will not sale or trade. The other two consist of a cheap FIE TItan 38special my grandfather carried and a S&W Military and Police Model 1905 38special (later became the Victory Model, then the Model 10) 6"bbl from 1929 my kid's great grandfather carried.

As always PB excellent choice even if it was pink. As a really big guy I chose the 1911. My back up is a full sized WW2 Russian TT-33 converted to 9mm. Yes I'm odd. As to gun safety......an unloaded gun is nothing more than a paper weight.

Huffle I have had several 1911's .. A Springfield, a Taurus PT1911, a Remington-Rand .. Maybe a brand or two I don't remember. They have all been fine weapons..but I just prefer a revolver.

Not a thing wrong with a revolver man. I use 1911's because its what I'm most familiar and proficient with. That to me is paramount. Use what you're most comfortable with and you will automatically increase your odds in the event you need to use it.

It's one of those deals where I'll trade/barter/buy/beg/borrow/steal an Auto.. Shoot it, buy a decent holster for it, carry it a few times, and then it winds up setting in the drawer until I face reality and sell it.

Yeah I understand that all too well. I spent years looking for a smaller auto that I liked. Finally said screw it, I'm a big guy why the hell should I carry a little pea shooter.
