    Ah, that's me, lazy! But, I'm retired, have a right to be lazy.

    BTW, Harry Callahan is 90 something now? He should be shooting a 9mm now. His arm would fall off just picking up that old M29.

    I have, and shoot some .45 specials in my SA revolvers

    Does that mean my .45s are really magnums? (Even though I load them to powderpuff standards 😉 )

    IMHO . 41 Mag was so designated by Elmer Keith and Bill Jordan to be a LEO cartridge. More powerful than .357 but less recoil than .44 Mag. Since it’s market was the magnum arena,, so designated. Both our shooting heroes are gone now but they wrote extensively about their preferences. For you young guys, that was in books and gun magazines. 😉

    Yeah, but I bet you don't use the same gauge tines on your pitchfork that I use and mine is better. Nah, nah, nah!
