They are wonderful guns. I've shot them for years. You being a reloader, will save you lots of money. I shoot lower velocity loads now days and really enjoy them.

Thanks for all the compliments guys.......

To answer the "Band-Aid" question, no slide bite on this guy, that happened only once when I was a young buck of 21, learned that lesson the hard way.....

The band-aid was from shooting 170 rounds of full power factory loads from this hand cannon, it started to chew into the web of my hand, the band-aid provided a little cushion so I could keep on shooting.....

Like most shooters, I own a variety of handguns, both wheel and semi's, but there's just something about a blued revolver with wood grips that I find appealing. Be it a classic S&W, the Colt Python, and even my 4" Ruger GP-100 that I replaced the original rubber grips with a set of Houge exotic wood grips, nothing looks classier than blued steel and wood.....

This Sunday is the next steel plate match at our range, the guys I usually shoot with will be surprised when I whip this thing out and start shooting.....
