  1. (I repeatedly used the SASS search function, but I have not been able to find posts about these guns, but I know they have been discussed before.) Note: After several comments, I added two additional revolvers. Thanks S&W 686 Plus. 357 Magnum. Single/Double Action, 7 rounds. 2.5”, 4”, 5”, 6” Barrel Length. Around 42-46 oz (Not sure about available barrel lengths) Or, Ruger Redhawk Mod 5060. 357 Magnum. Single/Double Action. 8 rounds. 5.5” Barrel Length. 52 oz Smith & Wesson Mod 625 JM. 45 acp only. Single/Double Action. 6 rounds. 4.13” Barrel Length. 40.5 oz Or, Ruger Redhawk 45 acp / 45 Long Colt. Single/Double Action. 6 rounds. 4.2” Barrel Length. 44 oz. Any comments on these guns for general use ... home defense, outdoor use, shooting range, etc? Also, I saw a lot of negative comments on the S&W 686 quality and customer support on newer guns. I really like the looks of the S&W, but the numerous quality issue comments are of concern. If you could own just one, which one would it be? .
  2. FYI From someone’s FB post from Political Cowboy . c o m “And, for those wondering what he used to take that legendary shot, he indicated in a comment, saying, “SIG P229-357 SIG.”
  3. Wow. Glad I asked. I am totally surprised by your answers. Hadn’t thought of all the possibilities you’ve mentioned. Thanks
  4. Thanks for your comment. I am sure you are more knowledgeable than I am. It appears the people asking for a Convention of States are conservative and probably more pro gun, don’t you think? Do you think Term Limits would solve most of our issues eventually?
  5. How many of you are in favor of calling a Convention of States? Pros? Cons? How can it help us preserve out 2nd Amendment rights? Purpose? 1. Term Limits 2. Balanced Budget 3. Limit Government Power Article V of the U.S. Constitution gives states the power to call a Convention of States to propose amendments. It takes 34 states to call the convention and 38 to ratify any amendments that are proposed. Our convention would only allow the states to discuss amendments that, “limit the power and jurisdiction of the federal government, impose fiscal restraints, and place term limits on federal officials.” https://conventionofstates.com/ (I realize this may get deleted, but I think it is a very important subject.)
  6. Tex doesn't like me posting prayer requests for him on the SASS Wire so please keep this one private.


    A message from Cat:


    "Tex in hospital with very bad infection-sepsis. Is in critical care unit in Pres downtown. Thought u should no. Cat"

      Thanks.  Will do.

  7. I guess we'll need to start a thread on the best self-defense cane. Diameter, length, type of material, weight, brand, short stroke, holster, etc. Glad the senior citizen stepped in. Old Guys Rule!!!
  8. Have you considered that perhaps your mail accidently went to your neighbor? When I get other people's mail, I figure the same thing happens to mine periodically.
  9. Yul Lose, Is this similar to what you used to do? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f1BgzIZRfT8&sns=em
  10. I like showing the stories about the young adults to my grandkids...well, actually to everyone. Glad they were on the front page. Thanks.
  11. We should let the soldiers on the front line decide what gun and caliber they want. Or, make the guys at the top who make the decisions go on the front line to see how it really works. Added comment: I am not suggesting that every soldier carry a different weapon and caliber of their choosing. I meant that the experienced front line soldiers should be included in the decision making process. If 90% of experienced front line soldiers want a .45 caliber in a Sig, then that is what should be purchased. Decision making from the bottom up usually works better than decision making from the top down. It is the "worker" doing the job that usually has the best idea of what is needed.
