    Is that jumping through hoops, or putting out fires?

    Maybe jumping through fires, and putting out hoops????

    Its kinda like your first year of High school, you eventually run into a few Seniors who are wild eyed and ready to climb the walls... same thing here.:D :D :D :D

    They are right, no such thing as a stupid question......just stupid actions like shooting disposable propane bottles and such......:eek: :eek: :eek:

    BUT!!! do we all know why they are open bolt??? I'LL tell ya why. cuz their rates of fire are so fast and such that the chamber heats up so much that a round can cook off after you have taken your finger off the triger. SOOO the bolt stays open and keeps a round out of the chamber untill you pull the trigger. cuz in theory, not will all people, but when you pull the trigger they think you are ready to fire.

    New guy here. With a SA you only have to manually cock it the first shot right? After that it works the same as a DA?

    Treeppl... Thats true for an auto such as the 1911 designs that Marlin mentioned (after each shot the slide will recock it automaticaly), but a SA relvolver requires the shooter to manually cock the hammer back on each shot.

    BTW, welcome to the club.

    That makes a SA revolver sound kind of messy to use. Or at least slow enough to get you shot. No?

    I don't know of too many people who would carry a SA as a defense carry gun. However, for hunting, there is nothing like a 45 Colt Ruger Blackhawk sporting a 300gr flat nosed bullet at about 1175 fps. Sure does mess up a Russian Boars day in a hurry!

    :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

    I have an old (30yrs) Ruger single six thats SA .22LR that will shoot from the hip cowboy style, just cock hammer back pull the trigger and hold it then just keep hitting the hammer with your palm. I would consider that more like covering fire as it's damn near impossible to hit your mark with the gun bouncing around like that
     
  14. Yep! But it sure is fun...:cool:

    Depends on how ya look at it bro, as you and Plano have mentioned, it would not make a good first choice for a carry gun, but it feels alot better than shooting a DA for target shooting/hunting to me...I just dont like that inherently long trigger pull of a DA, so I feel like even in a high stress situation I would be more accurate using a SA.
