    Wow, great turn around! That's the way it should be done. I'd have to use USPS, though, if'n they'd ship to a PO Box. We have no rural delivery out here, and the road is kinda rough for the big brown truck, but if it's dry, they know where the house is. My truck is positrack with mud grips (because I couldn't afford 4x4) and my motorcycle is a dual sport. My neighbor across the road drops his Harley all the time trying to make it to the asphalt 2 miles away.

    Some say it was to ban the "Saturday Night" specials...other arguments have to do with the serial number of the gun being melted away. If you notice, the polymer framed guns all have a steel serial number plate. While it's true that a serial number can be ground off a steel gun or plate, there are cameras that can still capture the image of the number.

    I think you're over-thinking it. There's no logic to the melt point thing, it's all politics and gun banners trying to find an angle. I think they figured all their "saturday night specials" were zamak. What won the debates was shall issue concealed carry. Suddenly, the market was FLOODED with inexpensive, if not zamak, carry choices. Their ploy only affected the dirt cheap stuff, much of which is junk, anyway. If it keeps Heritage RRs out of some states, that's bad, but it don't keep 'em out of ALL states.

    AND, while we're at it, the RR is banned in some states due to melting point? Does that not suggest the gun is zamak rather than aluminum as Tuco claims?

    Look for a nice older H&R from the 1950s or 1960s. They were really accurate and reliable 22LR (and 38S&W) DA revolvers. They also made SA ones so check the model number before hitting BUY. I have one that's been going strong since the mid 50s.
    The next handgun I buy will be the next to last handgun I ever buy!

    I got my Charter Arms Pathfinder back today. It was gone a total of 14 days, including a very slow USPS and 2 weekends. I got it back 5 business days from the time it was received.

    The repair ticket said they filed the rear sight screw that was binding on the cylinder and shot 24 test rounds through it. I shot about 250 rounds as fast as I could load it to make sure it worked properly after it got hot and to smooth the already smooth double action trigger. I am glad I got it but I now find that there is a $25 rebate along with a hat or T-shirt from the first of April through August.

    I am happy with the purchase and it fit the Uncle Mike's #8 holster I found in a drawer.

    I'd love to have a conventional looking DA revolver, blued, with wood grips. 3" barrel. Think Taurus model 66 in .22LR instead of .357. I just did a gallery of guns search to find that. One company makes something like that today. Know who it is? S&W. Know what the MSRP is? $1000. Flippin' ridiculous. Could be worse though. If I wanted a .22 Diamondback to go with my .38 Diamondback, I'd pretty much have to shell out $2000.

    I'd look at a Taurus, but I've never heard anything good about the triggers on Taurus rimfire revolvers on this forum. Maybe Charter is the answer.

    Since I got my Charter Arms Pathfinder with the 4.2" barrel back from Charter Arms exactly 1 week ago (very minor initial glitch), I have shot about a brick of 500 rounds through it. About 99% of the rounds have been shot double action. It has had no issues of any kind and inaccuracies are user caused (I am training myself to shoot double action well). The DA trigger is pretty good (I'm not a good trigger judge).
