    Re: Firearms?

    An assortment of old and antique .22 target pistols, .22 rifles, and shotgun, plus a few blackpowder guns, .357 S&W target, some CF target rifles, and BB and pellet guns.

    Used to hunt, but in recent years, only ground hog (wood chuck, whistle pig, etc.) Now I belong to a range, but don't go often enough (not at all over the last couple of years...)

    Everything is locked in a safe. Eldest daughter and wife know safe gun handling, and youngest daughter has been exposed to them and handled them, but never shot anything other than the BB and pellet guns.

        Mark,
        Quite a few years ago I had money set aside for a hand gun.I was looking hard at the Anaconda,I got the impression from the reviews that it was manufactured a little looser than the tolerances the reviewists would have liked to have seen.How is it balanced,how does it shoot,how will,how many,how.

        WHEN ARE WE GOING TO THE RANGE.

        Lets go up to Ojai so I can borrow my friends Contender in 270 again.

        I'm all prickly

            Re: Firearms?

            Geez, you guys are big gunners. I had a gun once for about a week. A street .32. Found it in my Dads stuff after he died. The first thing I thought of was taking it off the street by giving it to the cops. I didn't need it. I've fired 10ga, 12 ga and 14ga shotguns; .22, 9mm, .357, and .45 pistols. They were all too loud, and kicked too much. I did enjoy the competitiveness though. I have kept up with my softball though. I always have a bat and glove nearby in case a game comes up. You know

              I have to remind myself not to take Melissa with me to the indoor gun range.I have to really focus to outshoot this woman

              I guess when she actually does I can blame it on my diminishing eyesight

                I do not care for the Annaconda as it is not a fun gun for me to shoot. It weighs too much and kicks too hard to be much fun at target shooting. I purchased the gun for Bear protection while hunting on the Alaskan Tundra. The funny part is after all of these years the gun has yet to make it out of the hotel in Anchorage.

                As far as the Annaconda's fit, balance and finish it is no where close to the quality fit, balance and finish of the smaller Python.

                      Nice collection and it reminds me I do have some Black Powder rifles as well.

                      Josh mentiones hand loading earlier which I believe is a big part of accuracy in shooting.

                          This is my weapon of choice. Gives a new meaning to "reach out and touch someone". Funny thing is that I never shot a gun before I joined the military.

                          Mark have you ever shot the Bennelli automatic shotgun? 5 rounds in 2 seconds. Now that's home defense.

                            Here is a picture showing the size of my Annaconda (top revolver) in comparison to my other revolvers.

                              I have never shot a Bennelli but I hear they are a fine weapon. I feel fairly secure in my home so home defense has never been a consideration.
