Re: Tyler Gunworks

I really only wanted a taller front sight. But I won a lot of this work because they donated it in an auction and the proceeds went to a good cause.

Re: The Best Gun

I agree. This old Ruger is a prime example.

I don’t know how many rounds I’ve put through it but shooting it was like eating popcorn....a little bit won’t do! The only issue I ever had with it was that the front sight was just too short. But it would not hurt my feelings if this was my only gun.

Having shot a lot of critters with both. I think a heavier bigger bullet kills better at a given velocity. For example, a .357 at 900 feet per second is not the same as a .454 at 900 feet per second. Bullet shape and composition matters too. However, a .357 is pretty deadly when you push it hard. Mo...
