Thanks 'Dirty Harry'.....
I find my little 4" 425TI Taurus .41 mag serves the same purpose handily.

It's an incredibly light and easy to carry magnum. I have a cross draw holster that keeps it just above my left front Pocket and it's very "handy".

Model 629 with a 4" barrel here. High ride hip holster because with my short legs those standard hip holsters with 8" barrel guns drag the ground......

I carry a cimmaron 45 colt on my hip but with the jack asses having guys setting out 300-550 yards with their rifles pointed at us I had to do what I thought was safest for my kids. I still get pissed just thinking about the deal. But on a side note my son killed a big 2x3 blacktail this morning. Ryan

You made the wisest and safest choice under the circumstances you were dealt.

re: Slob hunters

... and you did the right thing. Anytime children are nnvolved the game changes.

In as much as my kids are grown, I don't have that issue to consider.

Problem is, it's not just hunters, or politcians or your local car dealer, its a general attitude in this country thats prevalent today. Give an inch, take a mile. Don't G.A.S about your fellow man, do what makes you feel good and hell with everyone else.

We (as a country) need to get back to basics, basics about honesty and fair play. I read the other day in the newspaper that kids in sports today get trophies for loosing or trophies for just showing up and I thought WTF...

Sometimes I think it would be better to live and die by the gun. There is a certain decisive fanility about that.
