Posted in thread: What action should be taken in this situation? on 01-16-2017 at 04:40 PM
This brings up another thing I have always wondered. If lethal force is justified, where should
you target the bad guy? I know it depends a lot on their positioning but assuming that they are

I had a dream of going to a small store, admittedly in a sketchy part of town (not anything I
really do in reality) and while inside waiting two bad guys came in and one fired a warning
shot off at th...

What next, 44 magnum or .50 AE isn't overkill either? That's game caliber. I'm not going to
dispute that it's effective, clearly it is if it can take down bears and other large dangerous
game, but tha...

downgrading your defensive arm for a less effecte one based on bad reasoning means....That's
just the thing though, "less effective"? I'm not saying I'd take a .22 instead to preserve
hearing, but I w...

Yeah, I don't know why someone would think earplugs + earmuffs wouldn't give you more
reduction. I know it's not going to add up, but I've tried shooting at indoor ranges with just
my Sordins on and e...
Posted in thread: What version of 629 is this? on 03-21-2016 at 02:02 PM
I've seen it lock up on people at the range. The odds may be very unlikely on it happening, but
all the same I'd rather not have an extra point of failure especially considering how useless
the lock i...

I'm not in a rush, but the problem with a new one is that terrible lock. It really makes no
sense, and while it can be disabled I don't like messing with any factory installed safety

I have a co-worker who's selling a pre-lock 629 with 4" barrel. I already looked at in person
once and forgot to check, I don't want to ask again because it would depend on which -# 629 he
has and I'd...

Oh I came so close today. Two gorgeous S&W 44 mag revolvers at the gun store, one was a 6" 629
Classic with rubber grip, brand new, $849. The other was a little snub nose 3" 629 with a real

I went by a Walmart just to get an idea on ammo price and availability. Couldn't find any 44
special, but I found a few boxes of 44 magnum (50 count). $40-$45, ouch. I've been paying
between $28-$40 f...
