Looks good! I wouldn't mind carrying one of those myself. You can always get it bored out....

Thanks! I would really like to have the pistol bore match the rifle - just don't really know if the cost justifies the desire....

I need to take the pistol out for a few sessions and see how it handles after a few dozen rounds to see if I have an affinity for the feel enough to send the barrel off to be opened up! But I dohave an elk hunt in September to think about having a second shot handy ...Hummmmm!?...decisions decisions.... :shock: :|




PS-
Capt I hope you are doing well ! My kid is finally stable on new meds after nearly two years of crazy. Just wish you well.....H
