My dad brought a revolver back from Germany just after WW2. PO Ackley told me to use cut down 44 special brass, and load it to about 700-750 fps. Bought 1000 Remington empty cases, cut down about 3 boxes worth. Hearing ricochets hit the woods sounding like hitting the trees with the side of an axe. Watching splinters fly from a stump at about 200 yards was also neat. Having all that brass made me want a Special, so I acquired a stainless Taurus 5 shot with a 3 inch barrel. Have shot it a little, but not near enough to learn its capabilities, I am sure it is more capable than me.

Political Correctness is a doctrine, recently fostered by a delusional , illogical minority and promoted by a sick mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a piece of cr*p by the clean end!
Now, with special thanks to the Truman Museum and Harry himself, you and I finally have a full understanding of what "POLITICAL CORRECTNESS" really means.....
