Yeah it works great but not as cool as the WWGuns Copilot.
As for the Bolt action handgun, man if we were caught with that over here, you can throw away the jail key. Not allowed because we cant be trusted. Also we do not have amendments to protect us, we are under the Queens common law here. I suppose after all, our ancesters were all convicts.

Just under a quiet note boy's, a couple of mates and i went to the range yesterday and i put through about 30 rounds off the bench. My shoulder now sports a distinct color of black and purple. I might just down grade my powder charge from 53Gr to 50 Gr of R7. My mate Chris works at Clayton firearms here and he even stated it was like touching off a .500 jeffery with the recoil. Also im pretty sure i don't need to penetrate through 12 MuskOx in a row, though our "Barramundi is a Bloody big fish".

Beautiful pics and just darling animals! Our bears are not quite as cuddly. This one was in our yard, three years ago, and was downright grouchy.

Thanks, TX. Oh, yeah, my 45-70 Encore rifle or pistol would be up to the job or maybe my Encore 50 cal ML or our Mossberg pump 12 ga with rifled slugs or our … we're not exactly defenseless, here.

KL, a 357 rifle with 180 grain HC bullet loads would certainly work on black bears, too. For a bear defense pistol, I used to carry a GP-100 loaded with heavy Buffalo Bore 180 hard cast 357 mags and didn't feel at all under-gunned. Being more of a semi auto shooter, I may convert one of my 1911s to a 460 Rowland or add a 10mm Colt to the collection, though. I no longer own a revolver.

Yup, I did. I could not stand getting bit by the spur on that danged dragoon style trigger guard. Didn't happen every shot, but the least little bit of carelessness in the way I gripped that SBH and, "Ouch!" That thing really hurt. Too high a price to pay just for the sake of style. Absolutely no need for that thing.

On the other hand, I can shoot my 44 Encore ported 12" barrel pistol all afternoon long in total comfort and as for accuracy, well, it makes a SBH look really bad. Heck, shooting the Encore pistol side by side with my Marlin 44 mag rifle, the Encore won, hands down. (One reason I sold the Marlin, the other being the profit I made.) That's the trouble with my Encore pistols; they have an annoying habit of outshooting my rifles, even some of my fancy bolt rifles. Darn things. They really make me wonder why I even bother with rifles, sometimes.

My association with guns has gone on for over 60 years and I can truly say NCG & Tx are light years ahead of me on my knowledge of guns.
Geesh! I sometimes do not even know what you folks are talking about.
I guess I am nieve when it comes to knowing all of the calibers you folks talk about.
I guess being a workaholic kept me from spending too much time with my guns as I worked 15-17 hours a day 7 days a week.
There was not any time to spend to get into anything other than an occasional shotgun or rifle. Too bad I missed out.

Wizard, who started the Pit Stop thread years ago, is a serious precision shooter, as is Kim, but I have never known anyone in the league with NCG and Gunrunner. I am just a duffer who has always loved guns and shooting since I was a child. I have not done any precision rifle shooting since High School ROTC and while a spent a lot of time on defensive handgun shooting I never approached their level.

Hey, you guys, you're going to give me a swelled head. For the record, I DO NOT regard myself in the same class as TX in terms of actual competition shooting or knowledge of lever guns or black powder or so many other types of shooting. Have spent my life as a hunter/recreational shooter, just dabbling a bit in competition. Thank you for the nice comments, though.

That is why I put the Vaquero grip frame on my Maxie .
