My dad gave me his Ruger Super Single Six (New model) with a 9.5" barrel with a nice holster about 10 years ago. It only has the .22 WMR mag. The .22 LR mag wasn't with it when he got it. I'm probably going to trade or sell it and get a better home defense pistol. Any recommendations? Don't really want to break the bank.

Those are nice little plinkers, are you sure you want to sell it? A regular .22lr cylinder could be bought for not that much.

For home defense I reccomend something like a CZ75 (preferably B model but they're all good). Single action with double action back up and a safety. Then practice practice practice.

Any Walther PPS owners? Found a used one, local, in very nice
shape (though they are asking a ton for it).

Google says the early ones had spring issues. Anybody know anything else about them?

I've got thousands through mine and no finish issues. Just not as accurate as my Brown. Way cheaper to shoot though.

I have 1K rounds of new Starline brass on hand, and a brand new MiHec H&G #503 .44 Caliber Keith brass mould staring at me. Just need to get the lead pot warmed up.

Very nice. Never manhandled a Bisley grip before. How do you like it?
Oh, and my trade was just finalized. Threw some guns up for trade on my gunboard and a guy came at me with this:


45 Colt (hee!) with a 45 ACP cylinder as well. 1976 vintage, has "MADE IN THE 200th YEAR OF AMERICAN LIBERTY" stamped on the barrel. Woulda preferred a shorter barrel, but you can't look a gift 45 Colt in the mouth I suppose....
