    1501 - touche!

    You can carry, but if you declare the weapon (and they require you to declare all weapons) they will make you leave your ammo at the front door and will put a zip tie through the guns action.

    IWB Holsters

    Hey, besides Virginia Arms and Blue Ridge - who has a good selection of holsters in Northern Virginia?

    Specifically, I am looking for a nice leather IWB for a 1911.

    Also, anyone have any opinions on Kramer Holsters?

    I didn't look at them closely, but Guns and Ammo Warehouse seemed to have a lot. BTW, they've moved, they're now at the strip shopping center next to the 7-11 before you turn off RT28.

    Hmmm, I may go by in the morning and check them out then.

    Thanks Chris.

    S&w 327

    He has only fired 48 rounds through it? I guess that's how long it took him to figure out that shooting a .357 in a small gun like that hurts.:neener:

    Again, small price to pay to shoot THE MAGNUM! Slateman, I think this one is for one. Just imagine ... the 327 on your hip ... the pink shirt on your back. We'd have to call you "Mr. Tactical"! :cool:

    :scrutiny:

    Time to call the WAAAAAAAAAAAmbulance...

    That's a heck of a buy for what you get. I think the 325PD with 230 grain .45's hurts worse...

    WOW!! Been a busy surfer have'nt you KONY!! :what:

    I like the looks of that 325PD but I'm all bought out for a while ... I might even last 2 months without buying a firearm!! :eek:

    However, if you ever come across a .308 VEPR with muzzle break in good condition for under $600 please direct my attention to it!! I suppose for that I could be persuaded to go to my plastic enabler :evil:


    2 questions for Smurfslayer: Is it even possible to get full moon clips for that Taurus 65? Secondly, I find the lack of contrast on the sight a bit difficult. I know you all suggested I get some sight paint (which I'm willing to do) but I've heard elsewhere that it won't last any better than say the ceramic touch up that you can get for your sink etc. I was just thinking of avoiding the trip to Manassas (the closest place I know that sells it). What are your thoughts?

    Yup! Been doing some deals lately ... when that happens, everyone wins! ;)

    I know this was for Smurf but I have some Testor florescent paint that should work as well as the Brite Sites paint VA Arms sells. Let me know and you could borrow the kit. It consists of various colors.

    Concur w/ Kony; use the sight paint. The ramp on the 65 is so small that drilling a Trijicon optic into it would be ... intricate and difficult. I used the white paint on my Mac10. You can always coat it in clear nail polish... You shouldn't have to redo the paint...

    Now, I believe Cylinder & Slide does moon clip conversions... even for the 500 :D However, I'd caution against dumping a lot of money into a $200 gun. I never looked for a moon clip conversion for that gun because speed loaders were available.

    Agreed! If you want moonclips, that's the perfect excuse to buy a new wheelgun! All you need to do is get one from S&W's Performance Center! :cool:

    Man, that M13 is a deal. I'd buy it right now if I could liquidate my K9 (it's at Kahr, so I can't do that at the moment).

    If the doc OKs it, I may be at the range this Friday (assuming I feel up to it as well).

    Apparently, you weren't the only one. That thing sold mighty fast! Keep an eye on this buyer though as he's been selling some nice pieces from his collection. Hightech was going to buy an M17 from him.

    BTW ... G27 for sale in VA ...

    I hadn't thought of spending a LOT of money on it (as you said it is a $200 gun) but when I saw how cheap moon clips were for other revolvers... well, I had to ask.

    I'm still getting the hang of the speed loader. It seems to take a lot of playing around with to make the rounds seat before I turn the handle. What's more, there always seems to be one round that hangs up on the grip (when getting rid of the spent shells). <sigh> ... I know... I know... practice, practice practice!

    I already know what wheelgun I'll buy next (when I buy one) but given that the MSRP is about $650 it will be a while.

    Well, moon clips are cheap but moon clip conversions are not. Plus, unless you are competing or really plan to use the wheelgun for your primary carry gun, I wouldn't bother. Loading the cylinder one cartridge at a time is part of the magnum charm! :cool:

    As for the stuck case, that still happens to me. Some grips are worse than others for this.

    620 is a nice looking revolver but I would rather save the cash and buy a used K-frame or Ruger Security-Six (which I have ... and its a best buy in wheel guns, IMHO). Basically, the 620 is a 686 (which I have) without a full underlug and with a two-piece barrel system. However, new is new so its just a matter of preference. I really wish one of you would buy the damn stainless Colt King Cobra in Arlington so I could shoot it! :evil:

    I don't know about this board. First we talk about pink shirts, and now I hear a discussion of nail polish. Good thing it's Halloween- right?:)
