    I hate it when people use y'all as a singular. Or spell it ya'll.

    Redo??? You haven't finished messing this one up! I'll bet you haven't even bought an Taurus handgun yet!

    Meh, it's got a rail and I don't like that. I actually bought it but my wife liked it so much I gave it to her for her birthday a couple of years ago. I do like it better than a Beretta tho.

    I have a Baretta M9 I picked up about 4 years ago. I found out the US models have a bore diameter of .357 to .358. Always wondered why it wasn't as accurate as I would like. Loaded up some 9s with some .357 bullets but haven't had a chance to shoot it yet.

    As much as I could join in on the bashing of Taurus, I have one that I do like.
    It is a Taurus Raging Bull in 454 Casull.
    Veering back to the Black Powder topic, I like to think of it as sort of like my Eleventh Model Dragoon.
    Fans of the movie "Spinal Tap" will understand the reference.
    Yes, I have actually fired .45 Colt Black Powder rounds through her, not quite like the 454 Casull experience as you could easily guess.

    It's more fun when you keep track of those things without letting on that you do, then sympatheticly encourage those people to volunteer into those situations that cause them such irritation..... but that's not being a nice person :evil:

    I had a friend who would go nuts when anyone used the word "decimate" to describe near total destruction........ Decimate's origin is ancient Roman referring to a specific military punishment that meant "reduce by ten percent". If a unit showed cowardliness in battle every tenth man was pulled out of that unit's ranks and their comrades would have to kill them. In checking the entomology of the word the current modern usage began during WW I.

    If you really wanna have some fun load some .45 ACP with bp and run them through a 1911. Yes they will cycle, at least they will for five mags.

    And if you wanted one chambered for 44-40, this is the way it was marked. Because at the time, 44-40 was the most common chambering of the Winchester Model 1873 rifle.
