    After shooting a Thompson Center pistol with a 10” barrel using hot 30-30 loads at a couple of Silhouette matches I have no interest in even seeing a 50 BMG handgun. :lol: 

    The BFR in 30-30, an almost practical revolver... almost,  is a 6 shot fireball machine.  :D

    The reason I like Fox News is it seems they report stories you just don’t see on the other channels. For example they’ve been on the border crisis since day one of this presidency and they’re on it every day. They do the same on Israel-Hamas too. Others can disagree but Fox is my go to channel. They’re not perfect but none of them are!

    There is a reason MSNBC, etc, don't report on border invasion. I wonder why?

  3. High Plains Hud from Lenexa, Kansas.

     

    This guy is not only an exceptional shooter and competitor but the nicest darn fella you'll ever meet. He'll help you any which way he can and if you're lucky enough to beat him he'll be the first to shake your hand with a hearty congratulations. High Plains Hud is not only a fierce competitor but he has a contagious laugh and a wit that keeps you having way more fun than you should when he's beating you. ;)  He has dressed a supurb classic cowboy style from the 1st day I met him years ago. I am proud to call him a friend and a mentor.

    Look to Arizona, preferably in the center of the state...around Prescott or Prescott Valley.  Had a couple of new guns shops open up here recently.

    Love me a real gun shop.

     

    I went through Salida, Colorado recently and visited Salida Guns. Now THAT place is a gunshop! Reminds me of real gunstores from the '70s and '80s. Kid in a candy shop kind. :D

  5. Plenty of folks use the '87. Nowhere near as many as the SxS but the '87 seems to be gaining popularity.

     

    At the Kansas State match last month I believe there were 7 or 8 cowfolk using the '87.

     

    The '87 ain't an easy gun to run smoothly but when you figger it out there ain't nothin like it. :D

    NBC was right not give Letterman the Tonight Show.  Jay Leno did a nice job and definitely got better as the years went by.  As much as I like Conan O'Brien, he wasn't the right person for the Tonight Show either and they haven't found a decent host since Leno retired.

     

    Craig Ferguson was very good in The Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Late_Late_Show_with_Craig_Ferguson 

     

    Yup. Agree 100%. Conan and Craig were and are good decent men and show hosts. Neither would/could hold a candle to Johnny Carson. No one ever will. Leno had class, not Carson level though, and did a decent job with the show but after Johnny nothing would be the same. I just never enjoyed the Tonight Show after Johnny, Ed and Doc.

     

    IMHO, all other late night comedians other than those listed above are not comedians, are not funny, and probably actually suck at being decent people let alone what they're paid to be.

    ...And yet, the manufacturers are constantly flooding us with new models.

     

    Colt has got my attention hard recently. I only own one .357, an 8 shot Redhawk and love it. It's a beast. But those new Pythons just keep calling my name. AND THEN, Colt releases even MORE DA revolvers. The Kodiak, Grizzly and the Viper.

     

    It never ends.

    Prices are reasonable and I’ve heard Taurus has gotten better. I don’t own one. 
    I had. Taurus .38 revolver years ago and sold it to get my first Smith & Wesson.

    I acquired a Taurus Tracker 44 mag around '18 or '19. Good little gun... no troubles at all. Not fancy or purdy, but shoots just fine.

     

    These Executives are finished much nicer by the pictures I have seen.

  9. The new 692 Executive  .357 looks like fun. Pricey though. Hopefully street price shaves a couple hundred off msrp.

     

    It has a detachable 7 shot cylinder with a 9mm swappable-in cylinder.  3inch ported barrel, wood grips, unfluted cylinder.
