Pretty sure the only pistol I’d want with me for this would be a 7.62x39 AK pistol….. with at least two 40rd mags!Might of had me a nice cat pelt. 50AE vs Cougar? I think I might skin it when I shoot it. Lol!
50 rounds? It's not like squirrels have bulletproof vests. You know the thing.The other day (10/22) my daily Ammoland email included a special on the Black Dog 50 round drum for a Ruger 10/22. Ofcourse I ordered two at $30 each and they came in yesterday. I'm anxious to get these fully tested. They look great on the regular 10/22 as well as on the Charger 22 Takedown. Oh, the brass catcher I bought from ShopRuger also looks and works great on the Charger 22.
Pictures or it didn't happen. I bet that Charger looks sweet with those 2 upgrades.The other day (10/22) my daily Ammoland email included a special on the Black Dog 50 round drum for a Ruger 10/22.

My first gun was a single shot break open .410. My brother and I shot skeet often and I had two buddies that were making fun of us because we had such little guns, them having a a 16ga and a 12ga. So we invited them over and proceeded to smoke them in skeet shooting. If you can shoot birds and clays with a .410 all others are easy. Like the .22 I find the .410 a super fun round. It is certainly under appreciated and can make a fine home defense option.In her quest to become a well rounded shooter Mrs Byte has taken up the shotgun. She's got the pistol & rifle down & is looking to become a triple threat. She had bought herself a cheap semiauto 410 at Walmart that turned out to be a lesson in frustrating malfunctions so she got a Mossberg 505 youth model pump action in 410 that's working out much better. She killed everything she shot at last weekend but is still a bit reluctant to try her hand at shooting clays out of the air. I had a blast with it hitting clays & with a 410 it's challenging but very doable. Ultimately she wants to shoot a turkey in the spring & there's plenty of them around here.
Mine too and was a Harrison or Harrington or something like that and is in a hall closet for a snake gun. Getting me to use it requires a Bell Boy in the Bride‘s garden as all others get a pass.410 was I recommended to my Mum-in-law. Figured she could handle much easier than a handgun and not shoot herself. Also won't shoot through walls and endanger the neighbors. And the pump action alone commands respect from anyone who hears it through the door.
I like that round as well. Before getting hired I bought a Glock 31 in it so I could shoot it before the academy. Shortly before starting they decided everyone needed to carry a 40cal so I had to then buy a Glk22. I kept the 31 for a while but it just sat in the safe as I had other Glocks I carried for work and off duty. I ended up trading it.I’ve been a .357Sig fan since the round first came out in the Sig P229. Love that combination as well as the Lasermax guide rod system. Then a few years later I added a P239 SAS 2T in .357Sig and also installed a Lasermax. For many years I’ve wanted a classic Sig trifecta which would mean the P226, in .357Sig. On Monday I found a mint P226R in .357Sig with a total of 7 mags at a can’t pass up price. It’s now inbound to me. So yea, time to get another Lasermax.
Yes, I know the prices on .357Sig ammo are crazy high now. Fortunately I’ve been buying that round for many years and now have a bit. Plus I have a .40S&W barrel for all 3.. I have no interest in the .40S&W round but I have squirreled some of that away as well. Just because.

Yes Sir, found the 6.5 Creed in match during a zero putting holes in holes at 200 yards with all in the 10 ring, all five were in or touching the X ring And each other. That was during a barrel break-in session doing a zero.Just ordered some new duty ammo and it got me wondering what y'all like to carry for defensive ammo?
For years on duty I've carried a combo of Speer Gold Dot and Winchester Ranger alternating.
I'm switching barrels next week and needed some 9mm ammo. I couldn't find a source that had both Gold Dot and Ranger so I'm going with just Winchester Ranger, 124 +P Bonded. For those that don't know Ranger is extremely close to Black Talon ammo.
I still need to test fire stone of that Norma ammo I bought. You shoot any yet @Flyboy . Being so low grain I don't trust just throwing them in a carry gun. Especially my duty pistol as it has a heavier spring. Though I am putting a stick weight one back in since I'm going to a 9mm. Still don't see me carrying that ammo for duty.
