I find some of he best deals on used .357's. One of the S&W 386 PD's I have I picked-up used for $550.00, looked nearly new. The sales guy said the guy that traded it in on a .38 said it had too much recoil.

Heh Heh. Not with the the right ammo it doesn't.

Stay Safe,

TONY

I wonder how man .300 WInchester/Weatherby, etc. are traded in promptly when people realize that the guy who swore they "only kick a little harder than an '06" was shooting an 13 lb gun and their 7 lb mountain rifle is a whole different story?

My dad swears the only cartridge people bring him guns to have a muzzle brake put on is the .300...

well, after reading this after a period of time made me realize that we have a responsibility to help others make one of the most serious drvisions of their life.

I have a large container full of holsters that I thought was the latest and greatest until a lugged a serious handgun in them for 8 hrs.

So let's look out for our newer memebers and folks who are just starting their study of pistolcraft. After all, I had never shot a handgun until I was in the police academy at age 26. I was a lousy shot and have advanced until I'm a fairly competant pistol shot.

I have always tried to tell others a practical and affordable way to be prepared without spending a silly amount. A good Glock, a J frame and an affordable pocket holster is what I always suggest. I tell others the holster for the primary gun is something that only they can really decide, but I show what I own. I have bought a few holsters I wish I had never seen, and have a few that need to be put from a box into the trash...

Be honest, fair, and always prepared...

I just stumbled onto this--- and almost six years down the line, it still strikes me as the perfect example of why this Forum is such a great place.

Thank you, Evan! Hats off to you....

Great idea. Oh wait ...
