    As out of place as a Baptist preacher in a liquor store

    I've been a handgunner for many years, over fifty in fact, and looked forward to joining up with some interesting palaver here. Since logging on I've come to see that most posts here are toward the high capacity rapid fire glamour guns. Few reload, and few seem to hunt with their handgun of choice.

    I'm not opposed to the autoshucker, mind you, but doesn't long range, first-shot-count count shooting still appeal to folks?

    And don't the classic old sixguns such as the Colt, Remingtons or S&W top-breaks hold any appeal?

    If you're here, post something!

    This is no diatribe toward anybody, just to get something fermenting.

    I like to reload for Revolvers 357 and up and I go for long range first shot. That's my favorite shooting and when I get to texas I plan on doing a lot more because I'll beable to shoot outside. Shot the S&W 500m today. Can't wait to get one of those. I'm with you on this one Bob.

    Well, from my standpoint, I'd love to have the time, space, and money to get into reloading.. but alas, I live in an apartment.

    And I'd like to get some nice SA revolvers someday.. I'm not really into hunting, but to each his own. (People usually deserve to be shot more than animals :-D )

    But until my dreams come true and I find the 20 acres of land out in the country witha reasonable commute and a price tag under $500k, I'll have to hold off on some of these things..

    :-D I too wondered if the interests of this forum extends beyond Glocks and the modern semi autos and there are a lot of the posters that have been posting pictures of their favorite Semi autos but then this is the General Semi Auto section so I'll have to post something that is very accurate.

    I've been hunting Elk, Deer, Antelope, Rabbits and Squirrles with a handgun since the late 70's.

    I love S&W K-frames, and I like Ruger revolvers. I have bought some reloading equipment, but I have not actually gotten started reloading.

    I carry a high capacity 9mm, always have, and shoot in some competitions all with my hicap 9s but this one holds a special place in my heart. One, I like blackpowder six guns and my son picked this out for me for my birthday last year when he was 6.

    I enjoy shooting revolvers and I reload, but my favorites are 9mm and 45 autos.

    I agree..

    Bob you just ain't saying hay. I can't get out in the feild anymore but I do manage to get down to the local indoor range about once a week. I just hope the manufactures don't quit making steel guns alltogether. These air weight guns sure got one heck of a kick to them I have carried a stub nose all my adult life and some of these guns are just to light for me. I carry a Ruger SP-101 and practice with what I pack and that's 357's. Here's a couple of my toy's.

    I've got good friends!

    I've been snipe hunting with a paper bag but no matter how long I waited & whistled I couldn't catch one. My friends said they would take me out again though.

    That is a nice gun.

    As for myself, I guess I am one of the guys you don't like :-D - I am a semi-auto guy. Never been a big revolver fan and never owned one before (did have one from the ex-wife's side of the family for a while, but it went back after that divorce). Anyway, I do like 1911s, but not necessarily the older Colts. I am one of them there new fangled 1911 fans with the skeletonized hammers and triggers, and with the full length guide rods. And, I like my polymer P99/SW99 and HKs.

    But hey, I like the diversity on this site too. And, I learn a lot from others about other topics. Because of money, and probably 1 gun ahead of it, it may be a while. But, I eventually want a Ruger 357 - so hey... I'm slowly coming to your way of seeing things. Just give me time :wink:

    :-D Shipwreck you just restored my faith in the youth of today. Now if you can teach them how to wear their hats and pull their pants up we got it made.

    Rapid firing huh? Well you have described myself and my little brother's shooting styles. Of course we got the excuse of youth on our side. Everyone just says "oh, they'll grow out of it". I don't believe so. For me there's nothing better than holding a semi auto handgun in my hands and emptying the mag as fast as I can. I couldn't care less what others say. I'm having fun and isn't that the whole point in the shooting sport?

    I am a lot different than the shooting buddies of mine in my age group when it comes to handguns. They love their semi autos, but I love my Security Six. I don't know why, but I am just built for a revolver. It's either that or I have a very special relationship with the .357 magnum cartidge. My dad has a Desert Eagle chambered in that and I shoot just as good with that as I do with my revolver.

    Now as far as pulling my pants up I think I will pass on that. :wink:

    Someone far wiser than me once said, "the purpose of shooting is hitting."

    If there are good hits on the target after emptying the mag as fast as you can, you should take up IPSC shooting. You'll be a Grandmaster in no time! If no hits or poor hits, congratulations, you've just converted your hard-earned dollars into pointless noise.

    LOL!! Sorry guys. I just read my post again and i'm even scratching my head a bit. Well, look at the timestamp on the post. I was tired. I think what I was trying to say was that I love to shoot ALL semi auto guns fast. I consider my Security Six and all DA revolvers semi auto because the gun is firing with each pull of the trigger right?

    Ok, I think i've confused enough people here including myself. Gotta start drinking more vault soda when I post so I can be more awake. :wink:
