This is well worth reading


Some gun-people scoff at civilian counter terrorist training, thinking such tactics are "wishful thinking". I would point out three things to them: One - The only difference between the September 11th planes was that passengers on Flight 93 chose to act. I suspect that had the acted sooner, they may have saved the plane. Two – Unless you act, your life is in the hands of the errorists and we know their plans are for you, you will most definitely be killed. Three – Rescue by the authorities is a pie-in-the-sky feel good notion that will be of little help when your throat gets slashed. Bottom line - You have nothing to lose.

This is interesting

S&W has two new models out in .41 mag. The Airlite model is pricey, but i can't think of a better lightweight revolver (if you handload).

I wonder if Smith's interest in the .41 might prod some ammo company into creating a moderate velocity loading for the lightweight revolvers?
Of course i think this is a great article

Smith and Wesson’s Best Pistol

If ever there were a revolver of excellent, almost perfect ergonomics, it is the Smith and Wesson Model 19 Combat Magnum. This revolver is well balanced and offers more power per ounce than practically any other handgun.
