Ugh, what a nightmare. I dreamt I impulse bought a Taurus Judge. Ick.
First, I am less than impressed with Taurus' reputation. Which may be improving, but I'm not gonna take that chance. And examination of their latest wares still shows some lesser fit and finish to make me comfortable.
Second, I own no .45LC or .410 nor guns that fire either. And I don't want to exacerbate my caliber inventories with more categories or complexities.
Third, how good, really is .410 bird shot as a self-defense round? Answer: not very. Now I could go slugs for the .410, but how good is that compared to .45LC? Might as well load all .45LC at that point in the big revolver. But if you are going to do that, might as well buy a pistol that is designed to just fire .45LC. But that ammo is expensive and not particularly superior to others in it's class. Might as well just get a .45ACP revolver or a 1911 at that point. And now we've come full circle.
Anyway, I woke up. But only after I dreamt 3 home invaders were bothering my domicile. In the dream I eschewd the Taurus and just dug out the S&W 686. So even my subconscious was a bit hinky about the Judge.
Speaking of dreams, I know gunnies have gun dreams/nightmares. When it's a bad dream, some folks' dream-gun fails to fire, others miss every shot... My bad dreams, the gun works but the ammo is inneffective. A .357 just barely breaks the skin, only making the bad guy mad.
Flakes of Cold in Our Hair - Snow Days - Snowfall. The first big round of snow and freezing rain has started to skirt the edge of my world tonight. I am glad to be in safe and warm, for I remember ...
