Finally went to look at guns

So with Boeing not selling the 787s for a bit, no overtime for me, so i finally went to look at some guns.

Everyone loves the Ruger LCR's so the wife and i finally went to look. Its way to small for my hand, but she loved it, she picked up the .38 with the laser grip.

They had a Ruger GP100 there, that was perfect for my hand, a 4 inch barrel, so i picked that one up.

They had a Taurus Raging Bull there, 44 Magnum with a scope and a 12"? barrel, dang what a massive gun, they also had another Taurus
"bull" gun in a 45 also,

Congrats and welcome to the board.

I also have a LCR 38 and GP100. The LCR had an excellent trigger right out of the box, but the GP's was kind of cranky. Did a trigger job on it and it ended up really nice, very happy with it.

Boeing plans to double production by the end of the year.

A work stoppage would be costly for Boeing and its suppliers. And the company still has an order of 800 planes to fill for airlines.
Looks like more OT for you soon.

Nice cars but...

there are no "off the topic of guns" discussion on the open forum. We are strictly guns only.

Feel free to discuss cars via PM to your hearts content....

Now, Brian, there could have been a pistol in the glove box of each of those cars.

Which one should get the Ruger, and which one the Colt?

The 1941 model needs a Tommy Gun.

If you think the Raging Bull is massive, you should see the Raging Judge Magnum -six rounds .410, 45LC and 454 Casull.

The Ruger was a great choice.

I went to go play at my gun store a few weeks ago and literally every single gun in the store except for two Hi-Points, a Charter Arms revolver, and four hunting rifles was gone. This rush is getting silly.
16 Pistols, 5 Rifles, 1 Shotgun, no time to shoot them
