Intro:
Hi. I've been shooting for ... 50 years! Former NRA rifle pistol and shotgun instructor from waaay back. IPSC competitor back in the day. S&W .45 ACP 1911PD, 442. Charter .38, misc ARs, etc. 10/22 that i love :-0

Posted here and elsewhere

Clearly I've been lurking and not posting for years. That's my story and I'm sticking with it. Just nothing earthshaking to add to the vast knowledge base. Now ...

In the new world of ammo and firearms shortages, i (hopefully) have a New Model Blackhawk 45 Colt on the way. I've been jonesing for a big bore revolver for years. Just ... because. ;-)

Lessons learned: 1. Be patient. So difficult, since I was used to running down to LGS and taking my pick.
2. Be patient. NM BH 45 Colt in 5-1/2" barrel is ... uh, wait and see.
3. 45 Colt ammunition. Buy it when you can. Buy as much as you can. Really? The military is converting to .45 Colt to create a shortage? <-- j/j
4. Reloading back in my future. Wait. What? Oh, brass, yeah, sure I'll find that ... some day

Comments on grips, holsters, etc welcome

-jb, the back of the room sort of guy ;-)

Sorry to be replying to my own thread. Not trying to bump the count.
Range report in the forum of that name ...

It is hard to figure out WHY? Seems to be lots of "lookers", I like that term better than "lurkers", but few posters except for a very limited few, like yourself, who actually offer up gun information.
Might still be hope yet.
I've been looking for a Colt New Frontier in .45 Colt with the 4 ¾ inch barrel, hopefully NIB, and willing to pay a reasonable asking price. It's like trying to find a "Playmate of The Month" in Afghanistan.

YGTBK. You reply to an almost 4 month old post by a troll, hijack the thread and post off topic, and wonder WHY there's no traffic? [smh]
No worries, I'd sadly forgotten to unsubscribe from email notifications. That's the only reason I (or probably anybody) even knew there was a post to the ghost town that is RugerTalk. I've remedied that.
