That .357 should sure do it. I can see why you would have to hold on that thing. The barrel looks shorter than the round. I am not too good at identifying arms who makes that and is it titanium of what?

Couple of thoughts.

Ruger LCP is more than adequate for "every day carry". I just picked one out of the pile and put 100 rounds down range with great results.

Second, Ruger announced that they are going to start making the LCR in .357 mag. That's going to be my next gun.

You hit your home planet.

How much biger is it then the Ruger? I somtimes work fights that require me to jump around alot and there is a no weapon in ring rule (no always the case in the stands) So it can not show at all!

Nice Blued 870P

Not so shiny, just a basic brute. One will be mine, come July.
I think I'll call it "The Komet"... Joe was fond of that model.

Those sure look nice. Add an extension tube and your GTG.

Nice to carry, not so nice to shoot. Practicing with .38 +P goes real quickly.

I'm not gonna quote it, again, but that comparative size chart is something I've been looking for for quite a while, excellent contribution.


Oh, I should probably post a pic while I'm here.




Bushmaster, original furniture, aimpoint ML3, troy BUIS, will probably get a lighter fore grip with rails so I can add a VFG and a light. but I need to get optics for the AR-10 first.
