Don't underestimate the power of a .22.

Little Lake, Ca. Circa 1960.

Here's an old picture of my father and 2 of his duck hunting buddies. This picture was taken at a place called 'Little Lake' in the Mojave desert. The town is now pretty much non existent. :frown:

Were they using the mega phone to call in the ducks? :biggrin:
Lol, I never saw it actually being used. I think it might have been in case of an emergency. We would hunt from boats and sometimes be quite far apart, and that was way before cell phones.
It was a lot of fun. One of my dad's friends had two sons who were my age and we would all stay in the Little Lake Hotel right next to the lake, and get up really early and all go duck hunting. Fond memories. :tongue:

I picked up a new CCW. She's petite and weighs in at only 17.10 oz. I call her Lady'O the Night.

A .357 Magnum 'aint no lady Jim, well I guess maybe an iron lady. Great photography of a excellent revolver.

Well here is the first of my posts with my guns. I have a project to shoot each one so I will be posting a few here.

This is my Glock 23 that I sent off to have the grip done and the area under the trigger guard relieved a bit and the trigger smoothed and lightened a bit as well as press check serrations put in. Finally, I had an extended mag release put in. I can do a lot of this on a 1911 but the polymer stuff is not my strong suit. I had new night sights as the final upgrade. It is not a standard Glock in other words and it shoots like a dream...

TBH, I really consider her a 38. With the Mags, she not only barks loud, her flash is blinding, and she really bites into your hand. I opted for the 357 because of the little extra weight on her bones. The 38 (only) model is only 13.5 oz. and I'm sure the +P's would be a more than a hand full (like the 357 w/Mags). But the 357 with 38 +P's handles quite well. And no way would I put a 180 gr. Mag in her and not expect a lot of pain in my 62 year old hand.

EDIT: Robert, there ain't no iron in her. She's an elegant aluminum frame, with stainless 1 7/8" barrel, 5 shot stainless cylinder, and a polymer rear end with Hogue Tamer grip.

Actually Jim, stainless steel is a combination of chromium (usually 11%) and steel plus a few other minor ingredients.. I've only fired a .357 magnum once and it kicked like a mule. :mad:

Jim and Robert, if you would like a 357 you could shoot 180 grain ammo through without an issue, this is the gun :biggrin::cool:

I have a weakness :Love: for revolvers Troy and that one is beautiful, especially the handle.
I'm heading out to the Anza Borrego Desert this weekend with my son and some friends to hone our shooting skills a bit. We're very sensitive of the environment and only fire on targets that we bring with us, and leave the area in better condition than we found it in. I'll have my DSLR with me and post some pictures when I get back.
If you lived closer Troy, I'd love to have you and your family join us.

Sounds like good time, Robert, have a good time and be safe. Thanks for thinking of me, a well.
