  3. Tallball liked mcb's post in the thread Why don't double action revolvers require a transfer bar ?.

    I think Iver Johnson may have been it's creator. They have a patent related to it for use in revolvers in 1896. They used a transfer...

    George P - Me too. I might get something else later, but I thought I would start out with a good ol' DeSantis like I've used with most...

  5. Tallball replied to the thread New to Me Smith and Wesson Model 642-2.

    Thanks for all of the kind comments. Apparently I could have gotten one from GB for as little as $225-$250 if I were very patient, but...

  7. Tallball replied to the thread Help me set up my 1st CCW.

    I would never pocket carry without a holster. Even bunched-up pants cloth could get inside the trigger guard. I pocket carry, but it's...

  9. Tallball liked crestoncowboy's post in the thread 22LR Pistol Suggestion....

    The buckmark/Ruger/ and the victory are very comparable. They don't really feel like anything made for defense. I'd get whichever I...

  11. Tallball replied to the thread Thinking about a second carry gun..

    I've shot a lot of the small 9's and prefer the Glock 26. My favorite carry piece is my LCR, though.

  12. Tallball replied to the thread Glock Alternate (Not the Usual Question).

  13. Tallball liked Texas10mm's post in the thread Even better!.

    I had cabin fever and went to the range yesterday. I put 150 rounds through the S&W PD. All were rapid fire from the draw. All hits...

    I have a 5.5" Buck Mark and a 4" Ruger Standard. As far as I know, neither has had any work done on them. Their triggers are great. The...

    Thanks for the ammo advice in particular. I will get some and try it out. The 642 fits in the back pocket of my jeans very well.
