..there was this Taurus hammerless "Multi-Alloy" snub that looked...well, beautiful. I find myself thinking about that one a lot. Yes, it's a ported snub. I realize I may set myself ablaze :) if I bought it and fired from inside a jacket pocket, but the revolver WAS beautiful. Anybody own one and are you happy with it?

Thanks,
KR
P.S.-Not too bad a price, either.

I love you, man, but how many pockets do you have?

Some of us move the gun from pants to pants you know.

:evil:

I frequent Tilfords and Biffs but don't really know the other gunshops around town. Who do you find friendly and reasonable? I'm always looking for a better deal or service.

Happens to me all of the time. So many guns, so little time.

Ledbetter: I can't help it. When good looking guns are concerned~~I'm a weak man.:D (They whisper~~I've heard it!)

MLH: Since they enlarged and modernized their shop, Shooter's Supply in Lyndon has some good prices. (At least, OK prices. You're never going to beat Tilford's.) I bought my P22 at Shooter's Supply for $239.00 and their 638's were only about $25.00 more. Plus, there's always Kiesler's in Jeffersonville. LOTS of accessories over there. Lots of reloading supplies and holsters.

re1973: Yep. Went out to a friend's house in Oldham County and fired a few Silvertips behind his house. Not a bad double action trigger. I've got a "keeper" here. I was pleased. The stainless cylinder was easier to clean up than the titanium is too.

Right after I picked up my 940 I felt an uncontrolled compulsion to secure another j frame right away.

So a model 38 followed me home shortly after my 940 purchase.

I am reasonably under control now but do have to fight off the compulsion to run down and purchase a short barreled 627 with rosewood grips from the performance center.

I have not figured out what you pair a 627 off with yet:D

picked up a worn cotton jacket at a yard sale for a quarter one time. shot out the pockets. threw it away. not gonna tell you the end of the movie, so, you just gotta try this interesting experiment. woman then shot out a couple of old purses.

some days you just get bored. no harm done and we all had a good time. if you are worried about these things catching fire, dont put them on. hold em in the off hand, ready to drop and stomp. have fun. thats what its all about. life is too short to do otherwise.
