Hi sikacz, well to answer your first question I have quite a few guns of different caliber. Second, as the subject tittle says I am way out west. Thirdly, I stumbled upon an article ( https://www.politico.com/magazine/story ... 017-215784 ) I was reading, an older article, not sure how I found that article but here I am.

Welcome, and thanks for the Politico link. Re: Stu Redman - that's one of my all-time favorite novels!

That's humorous. If I was a spammer I would have just started posting links to porn sites or something.

I like revolvers. My fav is my Blackhawk .357 mag - see avatar. I'm looking for an extended grip for it as the original one got a chunk broke off, and the grip could be better - as in length.

Check out the line of links right below the page banner. On the right it says "Notification Private messages " and then your name. Click on your name to get a menu, and then click User Control Panel to get to where you can set up your signature and other aspects of your account.

And pay no attention to the peanut gallery. We get trolls from time to time and some people around here have a hair trigger response to anyone who seems even vaguely suspicious. They'll come around.

It’s not like we asked for a bank account number and social security number...

PS. Eris my response is not hair trigger. Just curious as to what this person likes, doesn’t like, perhaps suggest joining a chapter...so on. If this person doesn’t care to socialize, then a response of “just checking if I want to hang around” and “going to lurk a bit” would have been straight forward. Avoiding answering perhaps not. Not interested in playing games with anyone. I’ll ignore him then.

If you were paying attention I did answer and pose a sort of
question upthread. Never been interrogated like this on other forums. Not such a friendly crowd.

It's the lumbago. Makes me grumpy too. How do you like your Blackhawk? Is it the convertible to 9mm one?

Its a new ruger blackhawk, not convertible. I was wondering if these might fit or if anyone has bought from the guy? https://texasgrips.com/product/ruger-bl ... d-xr3-red/

There’s a reason we intro threads. We get to know you and you get to know us. You can keep your secrets, I won’t ask you anything else. The melodrama about treatment in other forums, classic. Especially since your OP post reference. Enjoy your stay. I won’t be checking back.
