Default What a hoot!

Don't need the Trailboss yet. It was great fun to shoot and didn't hurt either when I shot it. I may change the grips since I noticed that when it warmed up and I took my gloves off, the grip was slick and harder to hold properly. My other BH, in .357, has rubber grips. If the frames are the same, I'll try moving them to be sure that is what I really want.
Anyway, it was a hoot to shoot.

With age comes infirmities. Since if you aren't aging you are dead I'll take the infirmities. I'm learning to live with mine and it's an ongoing process. The 44 magnum has become a 44 special and the 50-140 has become a 50-70 and the 30-06 is waiting on some reduced handloads. I'm still tough enough for 357 handguns and 22-250 rifles as that's the largest caliber I have below the 30-06.

When I skip taking tumeric and a little black pepper each day my hands start to stiffen and recoil becomes an issue, good thing most of us have developed our shooting skills to where we can be confident in our accuracy with smaller calibers.

Come quickly, Lord Jesus
