I've always liked Stebbins' "folksy", down-to-earth, yet very knowledgeable writing style. I have Pistols, A Modern Encyclopedia and Rifle, A Modern Encyclopedia and hope to add his book How to Select and Use Your Big Game Rifle to my collection some day.

Does the Kimber grip frame have a tang or frame like a SW?

Very nice! I've fondled three, so far, but waiting until I can get a better deal than a C-note off the MSRP.

One last thought: recessed cylinder chambers may look great, but I've always found them a dust, debris, and gunk trap, having owned a baker's dozen Smiths machined in that manner over the years. I doubt whether they'd actually help with a blown primer episode. YMMV, Rod
