If I do keep it I am going to have to get set up for loading , no way around it.
Why do all of my cool guns cost 2.50 and up per shot ?
I am going tomar to get a bipod for it , I cant hold it still for nothing in the world . I need to brush up on my long range shots , been a long time since shooting at 450 + yrds . I missed a swamp stump with it the other day , dont know if it was me , the high cross wind or the scope .
Shot about 1ft low with 20-25mph winds @ 200yrds . It was not good shooting weather so I stopped on that 1 shot . Next few days I am going to see what it will really do , I hear its a very flat shooting round

They still do.
My S&W 357 came from the factory with Hogue's and they do make a difference as stated.

thank you sir. i have owned a few Smiths over the years and they do have a much better trigger than the Taurus pistols. at one time S&W owned a majority of Taurus and most of their revolvers were basically copies of the Smith revolvers.

Since we were on the subject of recoil, check this out.

Beautiful guns fellas! I'll have to see about getting another revolver later on. Maybe that 44 mag I was wanting. I LOVE wheel guns!
