I had a number of cars like that.November 6, 2014 at 1:17 am #28432
Bought it from my sister, she needed money and I needed a beater.
When I wanted to sell it, my buddy traded me an easily sold S&W
"ROGUE ELECTRICIAN" Hoping to be around to re-energize the New World.....

I am fairly decent with about any firearm and do have a few firearms that are a bit picky as to what they will shoot accurately. My .44 mag for instance will only shoot 185 gr hollow points accurately, but will drive nails with those hand loads.
This pistol will end up being my bush/field pistol. I am buying a pilot chest holster for it and have some oversized grips on it now as well. It has a much better feel to it with the new grips. As for ammo, I will play around with it until I get a good mid weight .38 and .357 load for it. That way I can either use it for general shooting or for game if I need to.
Fixed sights never bothered me. Once you get your ammo dialed in, the sights are usually fairly on. If not, I usually put a dot with a white paint pen right where I have to put the front site in my sight picture. It really has never been a big deal for me and I can usually get something worked out to leave me ‘Minute of Coke Can’ @25 yards without too much issue.

What grip did you go to, just curious? With all the different guns out there I still like the reliability of a wheel gun and the power of the 357. Anything more snappy gets difficult for follow up shots. I put 158gr jacketed semi wadcutters out off a 2″ barrel thru steel car wheels where my 9mm using a 5″ barrel just leaves a dent.November 10, 2014 at 8:01 pm #28808
I have an old Butler Creek oversized grip on it for now. I was thinking about one of these for sheer obnoxious and awesomeness factors…..
Here is the link to the grips. They are down the page and look to be about $110 not including shipping.
I do like the size of the Butler Creeks, but I am just not fond of how they look. Not really sure why, but I guess I am just a bit of a diva on some things.

Hee hee Well I like your blog on the gun anyway, snicker. No really they will look way cool and you can impersonate Patton.November 10, 2014 at 10:04 pm #28817
The grips look real nice.November 10, 2014 at 10:08 pm #28820

Check out Blu-Magnum grips.
Tedd does some amazing work.November 10, 2014 at 11:46 pm #28828
Post pictures of your new grips what ever you choose. I put pure white grips on a Ruger Blackhawk I made from Corian. I thought the gun looked really good at the time.December 11, 2014 at 3:25 pm #31732
When you have time how about showing a picture of the final product with your new grips?December 11, 2014 at 3:53 pm #31740
Haven’t got the new “purdy” grips yet….. Christmas, a truck repair and 2 more gun purchases pushed out things until after the first of the year.
I did put some oversized Butler Creek ones on it. I like those, but they just don’t have the “pimp gear” look I was wanting….
Here is a picture of the holster and pistol with the “interim” grips. The holster has since been oiled and dyed to a redish brown color.

Sled I like the holster. It would fit my S&W 460 es. and make it easier to carry. The action on those S&W is just so smooth.December 11, 2014 at 7:02 pm #31747
Sled, How do you like that holster? I have been thinking about getting one for my Ruger. Are the straps comfortable and long enough. You mentioned before that you’re a fair sized gentlemen. Something about bears and allDecember 11, 2014 at 8:49 pm #31756
lol…. Yea. I am about the size of an average black bear.
What i did was add a small section of leather strap to increase the length. The strap I added was about 14″ long and I really should have only added an additional 8 at most. It does leave plenty of room for coats and such, though. Other than that, I love this rig. It is very comfortable, allows me to move it around my body as needed for other activities, and it really keeps the pistol secure. The M3 are made for revolvers, M5 are for 1911’s. You can tell the difference by looking at the stitching around the trigger guard area. The revolver ones are much more rounded than the 1911’s ones and one won’t fit the other.
