Re: .44 Magnum Cowboy Action Load for Self-Defense in a Rifle

As folks have mentioned, it should be fine. The chrony results for my Trail Boss loads (240gr Lead) should give a rough idea: 1894 Marlin: Average: 1026.7 FPS (562 ft.lbf) S&W 629 6" Barrel: Average: 859.2 FPS (393 ft.lbf) Big bore lead at black powder levels worked well for folks for many years.

Re: My 629 PC Revolver does damage from both ends

I've paired mine with a Marlin in .44 for hunting hogs out on the farm when I want light and nimble (the rifle, not the revolver). Works fairly well in that case. Proven to stop a hog in it's tracks too. It's also pretty much my favorite range handgun. I skip the expensive .44 special ammo though an...

Re: My 629 PC Revolver does damage from both ends

I'll echo the grips comment (although, my original grips are in a box as over the decades they have come to resemble something more akin to a rock than rubber). It's (my 629-1) worn Hogue's Miculek grips for the past 7 years.

Re: Texan Jokes to pass the time here at home

Shamelessly stolen from facebook: The Lone Ranger and Tonto went camping in the desert. After they got their tent all set up, both men fell sound asleep. Some hours later, Tonto wakes the Lone Ranger and says, 'Kemo Sabe, look towards sky, what you see?' 'The Lone Ranger replies, 'I see millions of ...

Re: New Saint Edge. Need help with accessories!

I just finished putting together a new upper and was thinking that one of those Sig/holosun/primary arms red dots would be just the ticket for it. I have a cheap one on my 9mm ar pistol and it’s been great as a range gun. I’d originally shied away from a red dot since I see a splat (bit of astigmati...

I've had great luck finding purses for Mrs. Iunnrais at the Ft Worth gun shows. More so actually than I've had finding items for myself.

Re: When America understood warship building

The Bismarck bow on is an impressive sight. I'll take one of our last 8 BBs though - the South Dakotas and Iowas. North Carolina and Washington are good looking too (but a little lighter on the armor)

Re: Zombie Killer

My main AR is on the heavy side. Mainly due to the barrel (20" heavy) and the large optic on top. Not my first choice for roaming a field, but perfect for a fixed position (hog stand) and taking accurate shots across wide fields. I'd not intended that, but the barrel availability at the time drove t...

Re: VPN recommendation for Chromebook and iPhone

I’ve been using NordVPN for several months now thanks to needing to travel for business overseas. For iPhone and iPad (plus windows PC) it seems to work quite well. Easy to install and simple to use. For generic use, I generally have it connect to the fastest local server. I did find that while over...

I've been using the Shapeshifter Ankle holster for most of the year with my Walther PPS. Love it and have had 0 issues.

Re: Revolver rust

Depending on the level of rust, I might be tempted to try the boiling water method the Mark Novak uses over on the 'Anvil' series on the C&Rsenal youtube channel before having S&W re-finish it. I'd definitely not try anything more aggressive myself. I'm paying for that lesson with my Grandad's shotg...

Re: This is How Custer Must Have Felt

That's very close to the scenario that made me invest in a 6.8spc AR... Went out to the farm with my .45-70 to help my dad out and shoot a pig or two... Seeing several dozen come across the fence line when you've only 4+1 in the rifle and 6 .44 Mag in a revolver isn't a great feeling. It's much bett...

Re: Pistol Caliber Carbine Roundup

I've got two hanging around these days. First is my Marlin 1894 in .44 Magnum (which hangs out with my S&W 629). Probably my favorite gun to date. Depending on load (and reloading makes .44 affordable), it can go from very mild range plinking gun to a decent close in deer/hog rifle. I'm happy with i...

Re: Beto: Mandatory Gun Buybacks if Elected President

I just did some really quick and dirty research and math. Between 2000-2914 5.7 million ARs were sold. At $500 each each that would be 3 trillion dollars. Well, he did not say how much he would pay did he. I'd imagine that since they would all eventually be ground up and no 'legal' market to sell t...
