    Post some pics and let us know how it shoots. I've seen those and the new Smith and they really intrigue me. I use a short 1911 for most days and a Ti Smith .38 otherwise - the large 45 in a revolver sounds like a good idea to me.

    I'll see about the pics as I have a friend with a digital camera that I shoot with.
    I think with the ports and a snub nose 45 colt would make some cool pics.the owners book says to stick with 255 gr bullets at 900 fps so going to put some handloads together today.should be a handful.

    You might want to duct tape a soft pillow to your butt! :D

    See if you can get some night shots......that muzzle flash should be awesome!

    May also want to get a good catchers mask so you don't get a case for forehead-front siteitis. :D :D :D :D :D :D

    Good luck with it and let us know!

    well put a few boxes thru the beast today (taurus 45 colt snubbie).this isn't for the timid forsure but not that bad.it does shoot some flames forward and up thru the ports.at 15 meters I didn't have a problem hitting the steel gongs and no problem with heart shots at 7 & 10 meters.I fired 115 rd's thru it today and I was ready to put it away.

    1/2 in holes by snub,single action or win 94 just seems right(in texas).you just have to love the 45 colt.
