Picked up an MTM .50 cal ammo box from Amazon so I can get some 12 gauge a little more organized.
Nice buy Big Blue.......I looked at one in Rural King yesterday, but they would not take the trigger lock off to check the trigger pull and reset...I understand safety, but I told them "NO thanks, I will go to a real gun store that knows why this is a must to a firearm buyer."
I do most of my gun buying online so I don't get to check it before I order it. I do however check it before I fill out transfer papers and I have sent some back that weren't up to par. It doesn't cost you a cent to send them back. As far as whether a weapon handed to you is loaded or not, well anyone with an ounce of sense would hand you the gun with the action open or in the case of a revolver, with the cylinder swung open.yea, I ain't gonna be buying any handgun that i can not put in my hand, try the trigger, look at the sights along the slide and work the action, thats NOT GOING TO HAPPEN.
and honestly i am not really going to be handling any weapon without first checking to make sure its not loaded---even IF I just saw you do it before you handed it to me.
how many times do we read here about someone buying a firearm only to take it home and find an obvious problem with it that likely would have been found had they tried working the action/slide and taking a good look?
actually i do this with any weapon not just a handgun.
The thing is that you can't be too picky as to the type of ammo. I've been watching for Federal 130 gr. HST .38 special +P ammo. It kind of looks like a wadcutter with a hollow point. I haven't had any luck with that.I was surprised to see .38 Special online at a not too terrible price so I grabbed a few boxes.
Oh, you mean like these?The thing is that you can't be too picky as to the type of ammo. I've been watching for Federal 130 gr. HST .38 special +P ammo. It kind of looks like a wadcutter with a hollow point. I haven't had any luck with that.
Exactly like those. I still have one full box, but wanted to get more when available. A friend of mine, now passed on, used to load .38s with inverted hollow base wadcutters for carry. I guess he was ahead of his time. RIP Paul!
