Here are some smilies so I don't run into Poe's Law of forum posting

I was not insulted by it even though I think it was meant to insult.
The reason I replied is because this is a gun thread - one of few that has stayed up this long.
The reason gun threads don't stay up long is because people insult others and things get out of hand.
If you think getting gun threads deleted is a good thing then you join with many of the antis here.
But if you think the free exchange of ideas here should include firearms maybe consider what is to be gained by insults.
No harm meant and no harm taken.

man there is so much stuff posted on the Forums about this and that, and a million of the same questions over and over again, its actually refreshing to see something different.
How many times can we talk about tow hitches? And polishing...jeeez

Cannon at the 7/11

My wife and I both went much smaller with .380s as our daily.carry.
It,s no good unless it,s with you.. Loaded up you will find the S&w real heavy for a full day of packing heat. A .380/or 9mm has enough power for stopping a bad guy, might take.a.2nd shot.but that leaves us with 5 more shots..

The first and most obvious thing that comes to my mind is that Airstreamers are a typical cross=section of American society, and have the same questions.

Now, if this were "Apple Pie Forums", it might be a good question.......

Kris MN,

Many gun shops have their own range. Lots of "country" gun shops might let you go to the local range. Bottom line, find a place where you can fire several rounds of both 410 and 45 LC, or find someone who has one and ask if you can shoot it, at a legal range of course. If you were near us, you could test fire mine. It is a great firearm, just a little heavy for walking around in the woods, but then so is a 1911.

We use both a SW model 19 357 magnum and the Walther P5 9mm. The 357 is great for hunting and all around protection, but to much for hiking. The P5 is also great for protection, but is best for hiking and concealment. The SW 410 would not be good for either. JMHO

Silver Eagle, I love the 1911 frame as well and have several. Just purchased a Kimber, Ultra Carry II, in .45. Take a look at it. It has become my daily carry gun.
If you are reading this, it means I have made it another day!!!

We should be able to ask questions.
We "Part Time" aboard a 1982 Newell and I carry but this is an extension of our home. Agreed the .357 is a bit much, and a .22 may not be enough. I have an older Savage 32 but it can jam on occasion.
I am considering a S&W model 36 in .38 Special but I like revolvers and vintage for while in our '58 Traveler.

Gotta love new folks! Let's keep this thread sane and open please.

I'm a S&W Shield fan. Just the right size for cc. Like shooting revolver more though.

PSST resolute, we don't do "IBTL" comments on Airforums. Very few threads get locked or deleted. Airstreamers are more smarter than that.

We don't want them here, or the minority of the Jamaicans who swear by them.
