    This guy was prepared, and he wasn't even the cat with the gun at first.
    Well there you go. The guy that keeps his head about him and turns the tables on the bad guy wins. Sometimes.

    This is the problem with most eye witnesses put a little pressure on them and they can't remember who or what they saw, BTW how do you know they were not females, I know you just assumed they were males because that's the normal stereotype and who would want to admit that they were held up by two beautiful women,one a blue eyed blond and one a dark hair dark eyed beauty

    As much as people like to think their memory is sharp and on point, they are not. I watched a TV series a couple days ago that played out a crime. Afterwards, they were all questioned together. The show put in 2 people to try and sabotage the account. All they did to do this was simply state what they thought they saw wrongly. So if the person was wearing a black jacket, they said, "I think he was wearing a red jacket." It is called planting ideas. Then someone responds, oh yeah, it was red. The next thing you know the whole room thinks they are the ones who mentioned the red coat. It is something like 1 in 100 actually are good eye witnesses, it has nothing to do with how smart you are. Some people's brains are just wired differently. Think of it like this, without a system and I do know one, could you almost instantly memorize 5 serial codes of 5 different dollars, say given 1 minute to look at them?

    Yesterday, I found an excellent quality S & W Combat Masterpiece 15 - 4 and now all is right with the world. IMHO there is no sweeter wheel gun. I had one before and I sold it, like an idiot, and have been looking for a really good quality replacement ever since. I have a 10 - 4, and that's a fine revolver, but it isn't a Model 15. I'm a happy man once again.

    I'm thinking a Galco holster or maybe a Bianchi Black Spider holster and the 15 will be my winter carry gun.

    My 13 loves the model 10 he goes to training academies with. He also uses my wife's model 19 as a back up but the one he shoots the most is the 22 version of the gun you got-a 18 in 22LR

    I have no problem with people owning guns I myself own a gun for hunting but I do think you should have to pass an IQ test before you can own a gun. Makes me very uneasy looking at the dumbasses in walmart who probably own guns.

    I find Galco to be slightly better made than Bianci. My favorite Galco rigs include the Royal Guard (which is a copy of British maker Andy Artoonian's horsehide rigs that are taking a couple years to get some of his stuff
    Holsters for Handguns, Firearms and Concealment at holsters.org


    I like the Fed Paddle and the "concealable" for my Sig 229
    Galco holsters; Holsters; Gun holster, pistol holsters, western holsters, shoulder holsters, leather holster and Glock holsters

    For my little sig 238 this one

    Galco holsters; Holsters; Gun holster, pistol holsters, western holsters, shoulder holsters, leather holster and Glock holsters

    its cheap, comfortable and is very concealable

    we ought to do the same thing with voting if you want to make constitutional rights subject to IQs

    I suspect there would be less gun ownership-at least legal gun ownership and a lot less democrats being elected

    why isn't "beat the guy to death with a baseball bat" one of the poll options?
