Default .50 - .22 = .38?

Sold my 4" Smith 500 hand cannon. Invested some of the proceeds in this little plinker. Original owner upgraded grips, trigger, mag bases and compensator.

Forgot my .22 ammo at home, so have not had a chance to shoot. Did risk 1 dry fire to check trigger function. No take up, crisp at 3.5 lbs (guess).

But, by my math I now need to find a mod 52, well not really since the .38 bullet is only .357. Can dream.

Mathematically speaking, guns are better than women. With guns, no one gets upset if you trade a 44 for a pair of 22's.

As for dry firing a rimfire, it really depends upon the firing pin design. Some have limited travel and will not hit the edge of the chamber, others will hit the edge of the chamber and eventually peen that spot. Will peening happen with one dry fire? Not likely.

The grips say Tandemkross on them, just like the trigger and mag bases. Looked at TK's website and did not see the grips? Maybe they don't sell anymore, but can you trust me? I can't do simple math.

Default Not correcting

Not correcting original crappy math, but instead looking for the unicorn, a .28 semi auto.

Maybe a new wildcat???

Default Shoots good safety engages easy

Took the Victory out and shot 70 standard velocity through it and my sparrow suppressor. I shoot with the double forward thumbs toward target method and inadvertently engaged the safety a couple of times. Other than that it ran like a top.
