now THATS an N frame..

cool or what.. i still think you might want to pull those grips confused.. You can always put them back on, and a set of hogue rubber is a lot easier to hold on to.. for me anyway..

They are nice. What's it like dealing with the moon clips. Are they a pain in the arse, or does it actually make it easier?

lot easier..

you can just throw them in.. thats sorta the drill for most speed loaders..

I like HKS's as they hold up well.. (meaning fumble fingers can drop them) and once your use to them, you can pretty much throw them in, and wipe off the carrier by closing the cylinder.. whats really good or those that are soldered together.. Those things are great.. all one piece, and what you see Jerry Miculek using..

One of the things about Colt as ISD mentioned yesterday is the opening latch is NOT user friendly. All the Pythons for example.. Beautiful piece of sculptured, turned steel.. but not as easy to use as the older Colts that are referred to as "flat latchers" .. just an L shaped piece of steel.. works..

What would really work would be a top break, but they went out with the war.. This was the first generation Smiths, that the company was founded on.. Big contract to Russia in the first part of the 20 century.. called 44 Russian or Smith top breaks..

lol

That's good for a consideration of POD. BTW, do you still want to do a prayer of the day? I was wondering about that. Maybe, if nothing else, we could just do Sunday and make it prayer of the week.
