    With that new Blackhawk you have caught up.

    Enjoy it.

    PS: We expect a range report.
    Well, i started with a .36 navy colt, then a .45 acp. My opinion...every one should have one

    Slow, yeah a bit. But i hit what i aim for. quick (very) report. I need to choose a load and adjust sights for POA, but 5 shots touching, 1 flyer, 38 swc. first 6 shots. I like it ALMOST as much as my .45 colt Vaquero (original). Course the Stainles part makes it nice for hunting.
    i love plinking with .38s out of it.

    ONLY if you hit right with those faster shots.

    Of course. Only hits count. And hits with a short-trigger auto come faster than with a DA revolver for most people, unless their last name happens to be Miculek.

    Saw my lawyer today. He said it would cost about $3,000 total to legally change my name to Miculek. He did add that it wasn't really a guarantee that I'd be able to shoot my Model 19 any faster.

    I do not know why but I have always been able to shoot wheelguns better than autos.

    I'm going with this advise ...

    Wyatt Earp was famous for passing ordinances banning the carrying of guns, which by the way we now know were unconstitutional given the recent supreme court decisions. He was a long-time resident of California, and his effect on that issue is still felt by residents of that state today.
    Can you tell I am not a fan of Wyatt Earp?

    This old thread is certainly worth reading. I know I definitely shoot better using a GP100 with a 6" barrel than an LCP. However, when comparing weapons that are similar in size I shoot better, and for longer periods of time, with a semi-auto pistol. Revolvers have many fine characteristics, but generally superior performance is not one of them.
