    Re: Post Your Weapons

    Thanks for the advice Koz. The rifle has a Pachmayr recoil pad on it and, if I'm honest, the recoil isn't as bad as a 300 long magnum. I'm just a nancy boy that's used to firing a 308 or 223. If I intended to shoot the magnum a lot I would get a sled/vise to take all the punishment. At $45 for a box of 20 rounds I don't think I will be shooting it all that much.

    eta: I shot the magnum and the FN again today. The lighter trigger on the magnum made it much easier to shoot. No improvement in my 5 shot groups though.
    The above post is my 2 cents....nothing more.

    As the velocity goes up, the recoil punishment factor goes up with it. For pure shooting pleasure it's hard to beat a .375 H&H. In many ways it reminds me of a .30-06; in accuracy, recoil, and general ballistics. The hot .300 Magnums seem to be much sharper rather than a big push like the .375. The .338 Win. Mag. can bite but the guy that delivers the big blows is the .458 Win. Mag. About 3-5 shots is about as many as you want in one day. On top of that at up to $45 a shot it gets expensive.

    Re: Post Your Weapons

    Thanks for checking and searching.

    I found a few auction places that list some Dan Wesson stuff and this particular revolver commands anywhere from 1400 to 2800 (.455 super mag)

    I am always game for a good deal (if I think so), but I am really on the fence about buying the thing as there doesn't seem to be any demand.

    The only thing that interests me is that it is with everything and never been fired.

    Re: Post Your Weapons

    Are any of the auctions being bid on? How much are you looking at getting it for? If one of the auctions goes for more than you'd be paying, you've got a sound investment. If not, who knows? If the price is REALLY right, like, half of what they're going for, maybe you should pick it up, clean it, lube it, and stick it in the bottom of the safe for a while.

    Re: Post Your Weapons

    Maybe you guys can help: My 83 year old father-in-law thinks he needs a handgun in his house. He is familiar with weapons, he use to shoot on a pistol team. The problem is he doesn't have a strong enough grip to pull back a semi. We were at a gun show this weekend and he was pretty frustrated. He decided he'll have to find a light revolver. We saw a nice 32 magnum that he could handle but he wants a 9mm. We couldn't find one and the dealers said they are rare if available at all.

    Any suggestions for a weak old man who wants some firepower?

    Re: Post Your Weapons

    Stay away from the 32 for self defense or home defense, it's underpowered and you won't find a decent self defense round. 9mm revolvers are tedious to fool with IMO. The rimless 9mm cartridge requires the weapon have clips to hold the rounds. IMO there's a reason companies like S&W discontinued the 9mm revolvers.

    Find him a K frame or N frame 38 spl that fits his hand. I say 38 spl because the +P rounds are a decent self defense round, and 357 mag may be too much to handle for an elderly man. Generally the 38 spl can be had for less $$$ then the same firearm in 357 mag. Ammo is cheaper too.

    eta: a good pre-owned S&W 38 spl FTMFW!

    JMHO

    Re: Post Your Weapons

    Thanks guys, I'll do some searching on that.

    Edit: I found the specs on a K frame Model 10 S&W. They weigh 36 oz empty. My father-in-law thinks my unloaded Hi Point C9 at 26oz is heavy! Maybe he needs to consider a shotgun like the Winchester Defender we just found for my sis-in-law at the show.

    And it makes me giggle.

    Ha, funny...as you were typing that, I was pulling my SP-1 out of the safe to clean it. Been having short stroking issues and I'm hoping its just dirty.

    Re: Post Your Weapons

    I refinished the stock on my new Weatherby rifle today. Woodland camo done with an airbrush and Duracoat: (crappy pics as always )




    I'm not going to re-assemble the rifle for a couple of weeks so the finish can cure. Be honest, what do you guys think? Remember it's my first attempt at refinishing.
