41 Special

here's a nice write-up on the .41 Special wildcat.

Most Needed Revolver Wildcat?

There is a niche for this round. It would be perfect in the Taurus Tracker. Plus it would be a great practice round for the big .41 mag revolvers.

Since i am on a .41 caliber jag, Ruger and Smith should offer a 4-inch barrel version of the .41. The GP100 would be a nice platform for a 5-shot model and Smith already offers their Mountain Gun in .44 Mag and .45 Colt.

It's going to be a lot tougher getting doe licenses in PA this year. The Game Commission dropped the allocation in most wildlife management areas. The place i hunt went from 75,000 to 53,000.

Although, to be honest, i could have skipped the doe permit the last three years and it would have made no difference. The only takeable does i've seen have all been early on the first day and i've passed on the shots. I just can't bring myself to take a doe that early in the season and cut everyone's chances at a buck on the best day to find horns.
Good reading
