I have a few Wheel guns( and some the Wife shoots), I have given thought to both a .357 or a 45LC lever gun.

John: that's them. Here "Help" might take a lot longer to arrive.

You aren't a deputy in distress. If a civilian calls for help only the 911 operator hears your call. A deputy's call for help is heard by every police officer in the area.

For a civilian help is 20 minutes away. For an officer help is on the way before the trouble even starts. Officers have back up from another agency if needed as soon as they detain someone. Most officers in this area will just follow you until help is nearby.

This one belongs to RG, The shop took it in on trade, they sold it to her for $155 (what they had in it). We have put thousands of rounds thru it with no issues. Just a super fun gun to shoot for cheap. And very accurate at 50yrds.

Finally got the bench out and did a little shooting with the HiPoint 995. 50 paces at a pistol target with PPU 115 gr fmj. All 10 in the black, 2 3/4 inch spread. Moved back to 75 paces just for fun, all 10 on paper. Got about 2 1/2 inches of drop, but if it wasn't for 2 fliers I had, the group was about the same, 8 out of 10 in 2 3/4 inches. Must say, a bit surprised. Great little plinker!

Update... thought I would move back to 100 paces just for fun. Aimed at the top of the target to count for drop. All 10 on paper, windage only 4 1/2 inches, with the biggest spread 6 inches. Nice to know that even inexpensive factory loads are so consistent.
