I love shooting my Sig 226 9mm. By far my favorite gun ever!

I'm jonesing for a SIG 226R in 40 cal. I love SIG's.

I really like my Marlin 444 with Hornady ammo. Six big bucks fell to it.

Marlin 1895SBL Lever Action Rifle 1895SBL, 45-70 Govt, 18 in. Love the 45-70 round, this is my John Wayne gun and I take it everywhere. Accurate as heck with a couple hundred yards.

Look at my username. I LOVE the 45-70. I have three Marlins in that caliber. Two with a scope and one without. In the 45-70, I prefer the Hornady 325 grain with polymer tip. A real bear sledgehammer.

These big bore Marlins also make excellent feral hog guns. I took a 328 pounder at a big ranch in Kansas in 2007. I would like to do more hog hunting, but now most farmers/ranchers want to get paid to let you get rid of their problem.

Have to check out some of those rounds, I think what ever I put in it would knock a bear on its ass.

Well the polymer tip Hornady ammo gives you a solid 75 more yards and keeps the FPS and muzzle energy up. You owe it to yourself to try it.

My favorite to shoot is my Ruger GP100 .357 magnum.



It's freaking awesome, and I reload .38 SPL, so that makes it easy and cheap.

Great piece Will. I always wanted a SS S & W, like a Model 29. The Ruger is a solid choice.

I have wanted a S&W too, but I decided I should go with this one, because I bought it with the intention of reloading. The S&Ws have a lot better fit and finish, but with the Ruger's being overbuilt I figured there would be less chance of me hurting the gun if I screwed up. I have screwed up once accidentally double charging an already hot .357 load The gun was fine, not a scratch in the cylinder, but I wish I got a pic of the brass that came out. It was blown to smithereens.

So much for reloading while watching TV.

When you swell a 357 cylinder, that is some serious pressure. I'm glad you didn't screw up the Ruger "and" didn't get hurt with some brass shrapnel.

Yeah, it was one of those learning experiences that make you feel totally stupid. Last time something like that happens, I guarantee that. LOL

Back in 1972 I was President of the high school "gun club." (Yep, we had a gun club back then.) We went out to shoot at an outdoor range and we started shooting clays. My buddy had a stunning Belgium Browning auto 12 gauge. One of the range owners gave him some reloads and after shooting a couple, the third round blew the receiver up and he got pieces of it in his face. Lucky he didn't loose an eye. That was the worst reload experience I have had. (Later it was revealed that some of these reloads had extremely high wad pressure turning the shell into a pipe bomb.)

my fav would be my H&K usp 9mm, so smooth and accurate! for general plinking, my little walther p22 in camo is just a blast to play with. it makes you feel like a little kid all over! although loading 22lr's in a mag with adult sized hands is tough!
