    And the reason why I would pick the .460 over the .500 on any day ending in y is it offers the ultimate cartridge versatility. You can download to .454 Casull or even pop off 'sedate' .45 Colt ammo.

    Saw a new CZ Parrot at a LGS yesterday. It is really calling my name. Would be a nice compliment to my CZ Shadow 2 Orange. Trying hard to resist.

    Go for it. I thoroughly enjoy mine and at 5'8" and 130lbs soaking wet I've had no issues whatsoever. One word of advice, if you do decide to take the plunge, load only one round in the cylinder until you get comfortable with it. And yes I also have the 500. 460 and 500.jpg Me 460.jpg

    You didn't have the only lemon. A friend uses his for shooting steel. It locks up a lot and when it does, I usually have to open it for him. When it runs, it runs well. Unfortunately though, it hiccups a lot.

    Saw this on line. If NICS here wasn't backed up over a day. I would have ordered it. But it's a bit of a drive to Cabalas. Fill out the paper work. Then drive back to get the gun. At least they are getting back in stock.

    What are they going for new these days?
    BTW, there is a nice early production Mini 14 for sale in the Trading Post.

    Nice. .45 Colt would be much cheaper for the range. Too bad S&W does not list these options on their web page.

    I see a lot of posts from owners with problems with them on that rimfire forum and many of them brand new guns. I still wouldn't mind owning one though.

    That's actually a pretty good price for a Mini-14 nowadays.

    I saw a very nice Astra Cub (w/ box) in the shop last week when I was buying my S&W 1913. I had been looking for one for years and would have grabbed it in a NY second if I hadn't found one a month before. If it's still there in a week or so I may grab it up anyway.

    I saw 4 lbs of Varget at $47/lb (and passed) and a thousand LRPs for $80 (passed on those too) at the local Bass Pro store. I already have more than enough of both.

    I'm so glad you didn't say Long Colt. I get so tired of hearing that. There is no .45 Short Colt, and before the arguments start, the "short" one is called a .45 Schofield.

    That's a nice example of a M25, I'm assuming it's a dash-5?

    I handled a Colt Lawman MkIII snubbie .357 today. Bluing damage from holster wear, freckled around the trigger guard. Cylinder had a little play in rotation and endshake. Tagged at $799. I didn’t want it bad enough to bargain down to the $500 neighborhood where it would be appealing. Did I make a mistake? Anyone think it’s worth more than 5?

    I might go to $600 if I really wanted it and I just had to have one. To me it's not worth their asking price; a bit high given your description of it's overall condition. For that kind of money I would go the extra distance and get a new/used King Cobra.

    I saw several interesting things in my lgs yesterday.
    I drooped in to sign paperwork for my new(used) NEF Handi-rifle in. 45-70 ;):):cool::cool::neener:
    [Thank you, thank you.....hold the applause]
    [Pictures pending its release from mandatory 3-day cool down period]
    Good supplies of ammo despite no 7mm-08, 45-70, .204 or any caliber HST:cuss::cuss:
    Display case literally full of pistols. Of the most interesting to me were the three birdshead wrangler shopkeeper rugers for $250 each.
    Two ruger 22/45 lite
    Two browning buckmark target threaded $529
    Benchmade and buck knives
    Colt diamondback 38
    Racks of gun cases
    :)
