We never carried 22s but I took a lot of 22s from perps.

I never deluded my self into believing they could not kill me with one.

As for the intimidation factor , some of those people were not intimidated by a gun of any caliber.

I just wanted to dust off this thread and post a few pictures of my 1955 S&W .38-44 Heavy Duty. It likes the heavy Keith handload. Group is 25 yards off sandbags.

I had one years ago, and like a fool sold it, which I regretted ever since.

I've been on the hunt for one the last 40 years and while I paid dearly at auction for this one, it will get extra attention in pennance for my youthful indiscretion, with no regrets.

I have a S&W Model 19 6" barrel in .357 Mag.
I bought it in the early 80's from a Deputy friend when the Sheriff's office was changing to semi autos.
She don't get out much these days but she has a special place in my heart and may just be the prettiest gun I own. Sweet shooter, too.
A little bulky to comfortably carry concealed.

Bill Jordan. Famous writer, shooting exhibitionist, US Border Patrol veteran and military veteran. Survivor of many gun fights and consummate gentleman. His book “No Second Place Winner” is still a valid resource in these modern times. I had the pleasure of meeting him once at SHOT show several years before he died. One of my heroes.

I guess this just proves the point that getting old sucks. One of my childhood heroes is becoming no longer common knowledge in the modern world of LE and shooting.

I imagine some of today’s shooting stars will also pass into the dustbins of history as time marches on.

Naw, its just life.

I think those of us who have been around awhile just take for granted that some things are common knowledge, when in fact, they are becoming ancient history.

Point in fact, two of our dogs (Rottweillers) are named Buckwheat and Styme. Only those of our generation can put two and two together, and understand the reasoning and humor. Know what I mean, Froggy?

This implies that you have more than two dogs.

The thing about dogs is, two of them is three too many, and that "too many" increases by several orders of magnitude with each additional dog. Anytime there's another dog around, mine just gets exponentially dumber, and that's hard for him to do because he's already pretty special.

man, talk about a hijack . . .

Here is one you don't see very often, a 5-inch barrel Colt New Service .357 Magnum, manufactured 1939. Old highway patrol gun is holster worn, but bright bore, tight lockup, crisp action. Paid $730 on GunBroker. Sometimes you get lucky!

measure the cylinder of the pistol. There are different lengths. If you reload, some of the older pistols required a deeper seating of projectiles. My smith is rather picky on overall cartridge length.

My New Service .357 cylinder is 1.63" from rear face to front. Allowing for rim thickness you can chamber a round 1.66" OAL and still have 0.03" clearance from bullet meplat to cylinder face. S&W Model 28 Highway Patrolman is 1.62"

I definitely don't get the reference lol.

And I'm someone who prides themselves in being cultured and but being ignorant about things before my time.

The Little Rascals were a staple on the UHF channels on Saturday’s during my youth. They were over 30 years old then!

The Rascals and the Stooges were our Saturday morning favorites. Funny stuff.

Back when we were kids, TV's were little, B&W, and we only got one channel, and it was amazing! And along with a couple of cartoons, they were about all we got to watch of it too.

You're not seriously comparing 22LR to 9mm in their stopping power capabiltiy, are you?

Man, thats a nice gun. Love older colts. Built like a tank. also 5 inchers is where its at. I feel my MR73 5 1/4 balances best of all the revolvers I've ever owned.
