Also dude that hand ejector. Reply Indeed, that hand ejector. I’ve never done it but if that S&W was mine I’d dress it with custom grips. And that cannon looks like fun. Reply great now i want a cannon ! Reply Count me in. That cannon ROCKS! I was thinking about entering this until I saw the cannon. That wins by default. Reply That 280AI do…. dayum Reply Ok… The Nagant revolver is classy… Useless, but classy. I love mine. One WWI production and one CCCP post civil war production. Both from the same factory. Reply Not exactly useless… I can’t remember the man’s name, but one was used successfully by a disabled apartment-dwelling veteran in the Northeast who had been the victim of several robberies aimed at his meds. He shot the criminal, and then held him a gunpoint until the cops arrived. Also IIRC, he was then kicked out by the apartment complex for having the temerity to defend himself. I bought two Nagants years ago as part of a group-buy from RGuns, and randomly got two really nice Tula examples. One was an Imperial single-action ’15, and the other an interwar ’29; both lacked the huge billboard import stamps that RGuns later started using. The ’29 was in particularly good shape, and I always had fun shooting it. It seems that the earlier SAO was kind of rare, so I put that one away with some vintage ammo. Reply Found the story; one Mr. Harvey Lembo used a ’41 Nagant to stop the robbery. http://www.pressherald.com/2015/09/01/rockland-homeowner-shoots-intruder/ Reply You know what is funny about this contest is that, apart from hunters, if we measured “favorite” by the rounds we shoot the most, we’d be seeing a lot of FMJ in various calibers. The fact of the matter is that we hardly ever fire our SD rounds a) because they are expensive, and b) because only the unlucky few of us have to do it for real. Hunting rounds, yes, there is real world data and experience, SD pistol rounds, not so much. Reply That is one reason why I used my reloaded SWCs besides pride of manufacture. Reply Somebody admits to using R.I.P.? Reply Seriously. I’d feel better armed with the Nagant. Reply Mark me down for .45Colt, from easy shooting cowboy loads to bear stoppers, whats not to like? Reply I found it very entertaining to shoot. I’ve only done it once so far (new gun), but I have 500 rounds ready to go. It is hotter than cowboy loads, but not gun bashing Buffalo Bore either. But it can be really pricey. But then again, I am really fond of .45 ACP too. Reply My vote is for 7.62×25 Tokarev, on a basis of shits and giggles. Bonus points for corrosive ammo out of a sealed tin. What I’d really love to see is those Soviet silenced rounds for the PSS pistols. Maybe Steven Seagal could score some for STB410 next time he visits Putin? Reply LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Please enter your comment!
