    And with the Redhawk you look like Dirty Harry instead of Wyatt Earp!

    I had one and it was smooth enough and accurate and a natural pointer.

    5 1/2 inch ... almost impossible to find a holster for it since it is BIGGER than an N frame.

    One thing to think of, I had a 6in GP100, buddy had a 4in. I could shoot both as well out to about 100m. The six in was only a little beter further but I would'nt take a shot at a animal further than 100m with a hand gun anyway soooo, that and that the 4in can easily be carried, and the 6in can not.........PLUS 4in revolvers have way way better resale value.

    I will take that into account then... I was thinking that the 6" was supposed to be a world of difference. A 6" barrel looks cool but sounds like overkill now.

    I could actually shoot the 4in BETTER at short distances, and in a GP100, a 6in is very heavy for a .357mag.....it handles soooo much better in a 4in as well for general shooting. I sold my 6in and bought a S&W model 19 in 4in.....

    If you can find someone to sell you a 4 inch well ... good luck to you.

    Gp100 are easier to resell than a redhawk, and a redhawk is easier to resell than a single action.

    But the single action is cheaper and you will not be looking into selling it because it is not that much money anyhow.

    I've been registered over there for ages... Didn't really see they have a classified section, I'll check that out.

    EDIT: I did check that out already. Not much action in Iowa.

    Saiga-12 semi-auto shotgun. It's fed through a 10 or 12 round linear magazine
    (in the pic) or a 20 round drum. In the right hands it's tough to beat for 3-gun competition. I've had my clock cleaned by guys running Saigas enough now to finally throw in the towel and buy one myself.

    Your scholarly demeanor gives me wood

    The origins of this famous attack are rooted eight years prior, when in 1810, Argentina became the first region in Latin America to declare itself independent from Spain as the United Provinces of Rio de la Plata. The 18th and 19th centuries in general were very chaotic periods, as revolutions erupted around the world, following the precedents set by the Americans and the French. To help its rebellion succeed, Argentina sanctioned raiders and privateers to plunder other Spanish holdings in South America. By terrorizing the locals, they hoped to dislodge the crown's authority in its colonies.
