629 of my dreams

Mrs. Clean and I stopped at my favorite pawn shop and they had a 4" 629
.44 mag.

I looked at it and put it down, then went back and looked again.

The chambers were shiney, but, the recoil shield was real full of carbon
and the lands had something on them and the barrel lug had a small pool
of dried up oil as if it ran out of somewhere.

He had a zip tie preventing the hammer from being cocked. I asked him to
take the tie off and got "what do you want to do that for?"

That was it, I figured something is wrong and he won't want to run a patch
through the barrel either, to see what is in the barrel.

It was a real disappointment, I guess he really did not want to sell it.

Very nice!! I really like the Hogue grips on the bigger S&Ws.

These are now checkered walnut, like the rest. 629 and 28.

I've have similar experiences. When I offer a third of what they are asking for "parts" they either admitt it is problem or untie it.

P.S. good find on the other one.

Just a general question to Ned & the rest of u guys & gals with hand guns: - Do u need to shoot your pistols in comp's or keep a log of sorts when u use it? I know that in Oz u must shoot a certain amount of comps per year or u can/will have your pistols confiscated. Also, do the laws differ much from state to state?
Cheers!

No, we are not required to do anything other that keep them out
of the hands of children.

It varies a lot from state to state and even cities. The cities with the highest crime rates have the strictest gun laws. For some reason when victims are armed, criminals are less comfortable.

An interesting graphic I saw yesterday.

39 states have "shall issue" concealed carry laws where the state must issue a concealed carry permit if a citizen qualifies, just like a drivers license. Vermont does not require any permit for concealed carry. See the effect of these laws on the chart. Florida led the way here and it worked so well that many other states followed. It became so dangerous for criminals in Florida that muggers were targeting tourists because they knew they would not be armed. A German travel agency was providing their clients with NRA stickers and hats so they would look like locals. They passed laws making much worse penalties for robbing a tourist. There was a case that made national headlines where a young guy stole a woman's purse but when he saw that she was a tourist he took it back.

The cities with the strictest gun control laws like Chicago and Washington DC trade back in forth the honor of being the murder capitols of the country. I think many "shall issue" laws were forced on state governments by peoples initiatives. Legislatures tend to be reluctant to give the serfs such power as they forget who works for who.

As Nutty Ned said, none of my guns are registered with the government and it is no ones business what I do with them as long as I don't break the law.

I shot the 629 today and it is a keeper.

Real easy shooting with a cowboy .44spl 240 gr, as expected.

Right much recoil with a 240 gr .44 mag, the hard back strap doesn't help.

More muzzle flip with a 200 gr 1100 fps .44spl than expected, but, felt recoil was tame.

Very manageable with a 210 gr .44 mag silver tip.

I carried it IWB in a generic home made holster today on our walk and it
worked very well in that role.

The state laws vary widely. There are four states where you can carry concealed without government permission. In my state of NH a permit to carry costs $10 all in and is issued by the local police department and it gives me rights to carry in 22 states. They do a background check and check three personal references you provide to them and are required by law to issue in 2 weeks. There are other states that won't issue a permit unless you have a political connection. To purchase a firearm I go to a shop and find something I can afford, pass a background check and pay for it and leave with the firearm.
