    There are times when I wish to carry a revolver. Times when I definitely want that weapon to go boom, yet when the likelyhood of actually needing to use it are less than day to day expectations. i.e., the boogers are really bad, can be close enough to smell their breath, but there aren't too many of them. (Does that make any sense to most of you?? Can you relate?)

    That's when I carry my LCR as a readily available back up. Any shrouded hammer back up is fine, preferably in .357. My reasoning is that I've had to use one in this scenario and the semi-auto couldn't be fired. The revolver did the job, didn't snag when drawn and the hammer didn't catch on anything. Oh yeah, the guys tagged me 'Wheeler' because of this wheel gun episode AND my '84 Grand Wagoneer.

    For those days when I just want to carry a revolver but want a bit more heft, I carry my Rossi M68. Sweet little gun.

    I have a S&W model 37 that's just perfect in a pocket. Sometimes a small, light wheel gun is an excellent option to have. :cool:

    S&W 442 nickel for me. And, yes, I know what you mean.

    Just keep the lint out of the stop notches in the cylinder, the hand, the ejector star, the ejector rod, etc. When I carry a revolver, I clean it every day.

    I can't remember a day when I didn't want to carry a revolver.

    Although I still prefer to carry my Para P-14 stoked with Black Talons, there are times that a revolver will serve me better. Thats when I resort to my custom 2 1/2" barrel 66. It has always served me well.

    I still have 8 boxes stored that I purchased years ago. This was about the time that the American Medical Association was complaining to the Feds about the nasty wound channels they had a hard time trying to fix. I'm sorry, I thought the idea was to stop the bad guy before he stopped you. (I still think that way today)

    Do you think you'll have more legal problem than you bargain for if you kill the BG with black talons?

    Sure wouldn't look good if you went toc ourt over it.

    The SXT is just slightly re-designed so the jackets don't flower out like a buzz saw. The Talons were never banned, just discontinued and are still legal.
    Like I said, the idea is a quick stop on the BG.
