Re: 357, 357 mag and 38

I understand there is a difference between a .357 Sig, .357 Mag, etc. cartridge, but is there a difference in the revolver? Is there a .357 revolver that is different than a .357 Magnum revolver? Sure - .357 Maximum would be one example (the cylinder is substantially longer), but generally-speaking...

Re: 357, 357 mag and 38

My understanding is that any .357 magnum revolver can also shoot .38 rounds; is that accurate? .38 Special, yes, upon which the .357 Mag was based - there are a bunch of .38 cartridges (.38 S&W, .38 Short Colt, .38 Long Colt, etc) out there, so being specific is important. Is there a difference bet...

Re: New house + insurance

My bad, actually - I had thought that I was covered up to $150k for everything, but failed to ask about firearms specifically. It was quite a shock when I realized that all this time I'd been under-insured re the firearms.

Re: New house + insurance

Right - I was simply weirded-out because, as flechero said, you will have 100k on any other junk covered but not firearms.

New house + insurance

I'm in the final throes of buying a house and I found it interesting when going through the home-insurance policy that they cover a LOT of stuff - but by default they will only insure $2,000 worth of firearms. I have a healthy little collection so I'm going to have to bump up some extra coverage, bu...

Re: What’s old is new again...

Personal opinion: I don't agonize over calibers, as long as the bullet is a good design and has sufficient penetration. Getting it in the right place is my job - that's what I focus on.

Inventive descriptions for firearms

I'm easily-amused so I tried to think of the vaguest (yet accurate) term for a firearm, so I thought of the following:

Alloy Transporter
Plumbum Projector
Smoke and Copper Ejector
etc

Out of curiosity, what creative names can you come up with?

Re: Changing your mind - riding a bike....backwards.

I have that book - highly-recommended for shotgunners. It removes a lot of the mystery - and fascinating to see the photos of Bob's wife towing a target moving at 90 degrees behind their station wagon.
