Re: What to get next?

A revolver in 41 mag or maybe 357 - because I don't have a revolver I absolutely love my S&W 686, 4" barrel. It's very enjoyable. I'm considering a GP100 for "comparison purposes" but really for the grins. I'd think a 357 would be easier to find ammo for, so you'd use it more. Al...

I like them on the stock more than on the forearm. Probably because I imagine I wouldn't like the feel on the forearm. I like simple more than ornate. But clearly, it's a matter of personal taste.

The BRP website said they were manufactured new before the 1986 crap. Will that still go on a C&R? IANAL, but I thought the cutoff date was 50 years old or something like that.

Stemple. Looks more different (is that right?) from an AR. Cheaper ammo. Better conversation piece. Website says easy to replace parts.

I have an old M65 that I got at a garage sale in about 1992 for $3. I think I paid $5 each for the liners. It has served me well, but it's pretty much shot. I want a new one. They're just about the best fall field coat, I think. Tough, plenty of pockets, adequately adjustable, good length, etc. It's...
