Texas? I thought Beto confiscated ARs and AKs there. :sarcasm:

You like revolvers? Competition shooter? We like firearms here. You? :)

I hem and haw about the 10mm. I've seen proof that some 10mm ammo is really no more powerful than 40S&W. I have 45 ACP and 40 S&W, so 10mm doesn't seem really very necessary.

If I were to start over again, I might go 10mm and 6.5 Creemoor. I do love to shoot 45 ACP, though. Since you don't have 40 or 45 on that list, I assume you went with 10mm instead for your own reasons.

At 29, that 44 mag is probably a lot of fun. It is amazing how much your body changes after 50 despite everything you might do to stop it. I used to like big bore revolvers, but was reminded recently (by my wrists) why I don't have a 44 mag. :lol:

Welcome from sunny South Florida!

And don't worry about anyone here ratting you out to your wife, if anything we'll volunteer to give you cover. We discuss guns, politics, life, various other interests, but first and foremost we're nothing but a bunch of enablers.
