Just a bit of spam, I've been using these guys quite a bit for my 22lr and .40cal ammo. Also picked up an awesome Polish Flare gun.

Check em out.

I picked up a new old toy today. It matches one of my old old toys quite well.

Looks like a model 10 round butt and a model 15 Combat Masterpiece.

Then it got stollen from his place.

I'm still quite fond of those, nice N.

The new one is a M&P round butt, which I believe predates the Model 10, or rather, became the model 10. This one is circa 1948.

The combat masterpiece is my favorite gun of all time. This one was my great uncle's off-duty carry weapon for decades, and it shows. It has some holster wear, but fires perfectly. It goes to the range every time I go. MrsDonkeys loves it too.

In fact, I sort of bought the M&P for MrsDonkeys. She loves a nice wheel gun, and this one is in impeccable condition. Maybe I'll call it her mother's day gift.

Got to the range today and had but 7 jacketed shells to shoot in the new one. Used 4 of them to get the scope dialed as close as I could, then shot the last 3 as a group at 100 yards. That's the left target. Shot the Texan with iron sights at 100 yards, using 165 grain lead bullets in a light ~1400 fps load, that's the right side target. These things shoot well.

Congrats on the find, SR! Coincidentally, I was in Axmen Firearms on the afternoon of April 26. I waw enroute to Reno for a 2 week training that my superiors require......ugh, long time to be in a hotel room in Reno, and great to be back home now. I missed following this thread....

In any event, Axmen was busy and impressive as always. And speaking of impressive, your 100 yard groups with that pair of lever guns are excellent. I've never had great luck with lever guns in the context of long-range precision, which I realize they weren't designed for. My only lever gun at present is a circa 2004 Marlin Guide Gun in 45-70. I'll have to dig that one out of the back of the safe and get a pic up, it was a special edition gun with stainless metal and laminated grey wood, straight stock, no pistol-grip, so a little unusual in that respect.

Very nice revolver, Badge! I've not seen one of those before. L frame, I assume? It looks like a shortened SSR with an unfluted 7-shot cylinder. Those are good mods to make that somewhat specialized gun a little more useful for every-day carry. The SSR's 6 shot cylinder and longer barrel make it a great IDPA gun, but the shorter barrel and extra round would add some utility. I think it's great you carry a revolver on duty, you must be one of very few doing so.

It's a L frame, which is a beefed up K frame, thus allowing one to run more .357 Ammo through it without having to worry about wear and tear.

I have 2 K frames (Model 19 and Model 66) and have run plenty of .357 through them, absolutely no signs of wear or tear. Must admit, most of my Ammo use is .38 ammo. .357 Ammo's too expensive, now I have to buy my own.
