    I've done some through AmmoSeek. You just have to keep an eye on shipping. CDNN usually has deals on ammo too. I've gotten cases of .380, 9mm and .45ACP from them.

    Last week my LGS charged me...

    Cool! I grew up outside Orlando, only about a half hour from Disney. Dad worked construction there in the `70's and early `80's. We couldn't afford to go all the time but did go several times. Mostly...

    I wonder if the very first 4" guns were not actually 4" and later changed to 4.2" for Canadian export.

    I have three Single Sixes I bought in the $200-$250 range but those were 15-20yrs ago. $300-$400 seems to be the norm these days.

    Tough crowd. I've been monkeying around with mine. The finish is black nitride, not parkerized. The unfluted cylinders look good but seem to defeat the purpose of a carry gun. I swapped the birdshead...

    Yes, black pearl from Arizona Custom Grips on Ebay.



    Totally not the same thing. Ruger is just expanding their market to include that typically only enjoyed by Heritage.

    Finally came together with the pair of silver Wranglers I wanted. Working on a black double rig for them as we speak.

    On a range session, you really should wear hearing protection with a .22LR rifle as well, unless using a suppressor and subsonics. That said, it is much more pleasant out of 24" barrels than shorter...

    The .17 has more range but the .22Mag is more effective, within its range. If that makes any sense. I have a couple of .17's and they are insanely accurate. I've popped crows at 250yds with them. The...

    It's no different from the revolver magnums. Sure, it gains velocity in a rifle length barrel, just like the .357 and other revolver cartridges but it is not neutered in a handgun. Still delivers...

    I love the .22Mag and most of the hate it receives is simply unfounded. Mostly because it's not a cheap plinker like the .22LR. What it is is a great small game and varmint cartridge that is a much...

    I love spots and use them often. The modern spots are actually plated steel, either brass or nickel, bright or antique. Victorio made the important distinction between tacks and spots.

    Oh boy. Why would we need "Long" to differentiate the .45Colt from the .45S&W? Or even the .45ACP? Those seem to be pretty distinct designations. You can tell a Colt revolver from a S&W revolver...

    No offense but you really should've found these flaws before filling out the 4473. Most problems can be avoided with a thorough pre-purchase inspection.
