I HAD a 6 inch S&W in .45 Colt and foolishly traded it for a Beretta 92 FS. I didn't realize until later that he had stiffed me with three after market magazines also. It was a gift for my Son so at least he and the seller were happy.

Pretty. I love N frame smiths; always semi-lusted after a 5" one but never bought one.

Right now, my grail gun is a .41 magnum at a good price. Nothing practical about it, other than I would carry it on hunts and use it for hand gun hunts.

I reload, so the ammo issue really doesn't apply.

One N frame I think about selling is a 41 Mag Model 57 4" Nickle along with a 41 Mag. Marlin carbine, Just don't shoot them anymore an hate seeing them unused.

what kind of pricing for both? I'd prefer a longer barrel on the revolve for hunting, but if the price is right I'd be tempted.

they are pretty to look at, but have no practical application. I've never cared about looks on anything except my girl. When wifey gets dolled up, she looks fantastic. She'll graduate lpn school in 2 weeks, finally, work all summer, not sure when she sits for her licensure exam. Then start RN classes in August.(presumably,, if shtf aint occurred by then.) She's busy as hell right now, but as soon as she gets a break, she'll go back to doing her Jane Fonda floor routine. She knows I want her "tuned up". I let her slug me in the guts with a ball bat, now and then, so she'll know that I'm keeping up with the ab work. She can't really swing it all THAT hard, but it impresses HER, which is what counts. :-) I discovered the "legendary abs" program in 1987 and I've used it ever since. I had been doing nearly 2000 reps of Arnold's ab suggestions for the year before that. Took 2.5 hours to complete. Had a big scab on my lower back from it.

And you put this in the Handgun Forum why? Your fairy tales about the Nursing Programs won't work with me you know. Did you forget I know all about the RN Nursing Program? You are lying about the whole thing. There's no free ride. "Wifey" won't get the Government to pay for an RN School you know that and so do I. Don't you think I checked out every bit of the procedures and financing? "Wifey" is an immigrant so the Government will naturally fall over themselves to give her a free ride. Besides, you said the National Guard was going to Commission her. That lie is so fantastic I can't imagine even a pathological liar like you would have posted it. Your pathetic.

Theyíre not as optimized as a lot of other guns for some applications (concealed carry for one), but they still have plenty of practical applications. Recreational shooting is one, and woods-walking protection is another. I know this for fact, since the woods gun Iíve carried a LOT for years now is functionally identical and probably heavier; certainly heavier than the 4Ē one. Itís filled the practical function of woods gun perfectly fine for years (and yes, I have used it in 4-legged critters and zero-legged snakes more than once), and those two revolvers above could certainly fill the same role as well.

Melvin, you have to learn to think outside of the box, you are being to narrow minded. Any firearm employed within its limitations can be used successfully in either defensive or offensive modes.

Exactly. Or recreational roles, or hunting roles, or whatever. One of my per peeves is when gun-ignorant people start pontificating about guns being ďall about combatĒ, or ďpreparing for combatĒ or other such nonsense. Not only are firearms not all about combat, for us private citizens itís almost NEVER about combat.

I donít know exactly how many rounds Iíve shot in the past year. I havenít shot any this week, did a little over two hundred last week, 150-200 the week before, so averaging things out, probably 5-6k or more over the past year. Of those, I can think of four rounds that went for any Ďseriousí purposes - two 22ís (one rattle snake and one possum), one 380 (a copperhead), and one .45LC (an armadillo). There may be others, but thatís all I recall. So probably less then one round per thousand for any non-recreational use at all, and Iíd hardly call that combat by any stretch.
