I agree with the factual assertions in the second video but not necessarily some of the language used. Caution advised.
OK, if you say so? Only thing I know is when much younger I worked in a machine shop with many of Patton's work horse men who claimed to have fought within these "gas bombs" as they called them(were there, did this).

Yes I did do you really believe all you see or is on the internet? I'm just repeating what I was told by old soldiers who were there?
And I have no reason to doubt.

So, do you believe all the oldtimer BS you hear? Obviously you want to argue. I will not oblige further.

I blew up a ruger sp101 in 357 magnum a couple of years ago.
Here's where half of the cylinder ended up.

Actually, my 4 inch stainless Security Six is quite attractive. Especially when I stole it for $380 at a LGS. Okay, I am cheap, but it, and my GP100 .327 Magnum stainless are quality guns at a bargain price. No home invader would stare down the barrel of either and say "What, you couldn't afford a Smith? Sucker!" But I have more S&Ws than Rugers at this point. Smith's are works of art, Rugers are solid tools. Both get the job done.

Depending on how you personally rate Taurus...

If you believe they're decently built and generally work reasonably well...a Curtiss P-40 Warhawk?

If you feel that Taurus are kinda *meh*...mechanically okay, but not too stylish...a Bell P-39 Airacobra?

And if you dislike Taurus whole-heartedly and would only own one to use as a paperweight...a Brewster F2A Buffalo?

The SW and the Ruger argument is like the Chevy and Ford argument. Both revolver has it's good and bad things and about it and the chevy and ford has it's good and bad thing about them. Can we just agree that if you pull the trigger it goes bang and it works the way you suppose to

Ron M: Sometimes truth is stranger than fiction. Fortunately both hands were outside the car window. All I got was a hand powder burn. Now I double measure my handloads with a digital and balance scale and don't use jacketed hollow point data for hardcast lead bullets.
