I average 2 keyboards destroyed a year... as someone who types more than 12 million keystrokes a year, as a programmer and a violinist, I think looked up "arthritis" in the dictionary and saw a pic of my hands...
I went to the doctor, and if you've ever watched Grey's Anatomy, then you know all they know is how to "cut cut cut".. So they said I would need surgery and I would never play the violin nor be a computer programmer ever again..
(6 years later..)
my bones are smooth as silk, my violin playing still sucks, and I average a bit less, about 8 million keystrokes a year, but still substantial.
And all it cost me was about $60..
So if you are willing to stick to it, and give it a try, $60 bet, here's the recipe for anti-arthritis that I used, given to me by my friend, who is a holistic doctor..
1 Glass of Orange Juice (preferably fresh squeezed, if not, at least 100% juice and not from concentrate)
1 packet of Knox Gelatin
Twice a day, dump one packet of knox gelatin into 1 glass of OJ. stir stir stir, drink.
A box like this is about $60 and has 48 packets, which is a 24 day supply @ 2x a day.
Your hair, teeth, nails, will feel MUCH better. Our bodies can't produce soft tissue fast enough to replace what we've worn out. Most Americans don't have soft cartilage based items as part of their meals such as chicken feet, pig's foot, beef tendon, or sea kelp as part of their regular diet. So, Knox is then the way to go.. Your body will take the predigested soft cartilage (knox) and just absorb it and use it; you skip the production cycle. After about 10 days, you'll notice it in your hair, and nails especially.
Why OJ and does it have to be OJ? Not really, but knox has a slight taste if you have a good tongue, the OJ masks the taste. Also, OJ is generally high in calcium and vitamin C, and being a citric acid, will be acidic in your mouth, but will be alkaline in your small intestine.
For me, my fingers and hands, definitely worth 2 OJ's and some knox..
If you try it and it works out well for you, PM me. Best of luck.
For me, the grip reduced recoil (felt recoil) by about 50%..
be careful if you are going to CCW with that grip, as the hogue is a shirt snagger.. comfortable shooter, but shirt snagger, and that might play a part in the consideration if this is going to end up being a ccw piece..
Carried it all day yesterday with no problems. I carry it about 4 oclock under a T and it wasn't bad. I carry a M66 3" taurus with a bigger Hogue on it, too, without a lot of difficulty. I'm happy with it. Same grip is available in any number of woods that wouldn't grab fabric as bad, but they're 80 bucks or so and I really like the feel of the rubber when shooting.
Just picked up
my new-to-me SP101. WOW!! Trigger pull is nice, looks great with the bobbed hammer, and feels rugged. Can't wait to shoot it! Dang weather sucks here though. It's snowing now. ugh
I'm used to a full sized USP and thought I'd have some real getting used to this "tiny" cannon. It points right on target and stays there. It definitely fits better than my larger pistol - enough for me to realize that the misses are mine, not the gun's:banghead:. My accuracy was better with the sp-101 than my USP I've been shooting for a couple years. Granted the 158 grain American Eagle? JSPs were like slamming my hand in a car door, but they stayed COM or better at 7 - 15 yards. After 45 of those at the end of 200 38 specials, I was ready to go lick my wounds (trigger guard is a bit sharp). Gotta try the action job at the beginning of this thread.
The other 5 I got to set free from another range patron's new to him .357 Puma? lever carbine. I think I need to go fishin for Marlin.
This little tank rocks! You guys helped me decide on it - thank you all.
Has anyone done a ballistics test yet? I'd like to see what the various .357 rounds do out of a 2 1/4 inch barrel?
I am about to get an SP101 w/3" barrel for concealed carry. Question: I'm having trouble finding moon clips for the SP101 in .357. I can find them for 9mm, but not .357/.38. Any suggestions?
The .38/357 SP101 does not use moon clips unless you are buying one that has been modified for such use (and I'm not aware of anyone who makes SP101 moon clips in .38/.357). Speed strips or any of various speed loaders are what you need to carry reloads for the SP101.
They are not that bad
I know there are aftermarket wooden grips that are more CCW conducive in their shape from Eagle Grips and Badger Grips and maybe others. Not sure they are smaller, really but more round-butted. Uncle Mike's/Butler Creek used to make a rubber version of Spegel Grips that I really like but they have been discontinued for some time. Again, maybe not much smaller but much more rounded. Hard to come by, though. I always hope they'll start production again.
You carry TWO snubbies at the same time?
Do you live in a bad part of town or is it because your wife is mad at you?
From the three there has been no trouble from any.
I really like the SP 101 and all Ruger revolvers.
