To say I was a little surprised is an understatement, when I realized that one pound of Win 296 only loaded up 250 round of 185 grain .44 Magnums.

Seems I read somewhere that at one time SFPD issued the model 58... but I could be wrong.

Even the punk could acknowledge that a violent death is preferable to a lifetime of agonized wondering what would have happened with the "different" choice.

I can add to this "masquerade" syndrome. I own a Smith model 28, the same frame as the 29, but in .357mag. Students get a kick out of handling a "Dirty Harry"-sized revolver, even if it is a different caliber.

Because of what it's built on, a S&W 27 or 28 is almost a forever revolver ! Easy to shoot & mild in the hand.

Shadow, don't fret my SBH, it went to a chap that only shoots factory Winchester ammo, about 1 or 2 boxes a year & gives me the once fired brass. SINCE 1981 !!
And it's been replaced, a SBH is too good not to have one of !

I want one of those 627 performance center 8 shot .357s so bad I can hardly stand it. Sucks being of low income sometimes.

I offer Tevye's lament from "Fiddler on the Roof":

Oh Lord. You made many many poor people. I realize, of course, that it's no shame to be poor ... but it's no great honor either!

I'm north of the River, they are opening the Bonnet Carré Spillway in an efford to lower the river levels both above and below...they are considering opening the Atchafalaya Spillway further up river also to ease the pressures on the levy systems an make shipping less hazardous. More latter!

Shadow, have you heard anything about possibilities of the authorities deciding to open the Morganza Floodway further down on the Atchafalaya? If I recall correctly, the Morganza has been open only once before since it was built.

The Morganza Spillway are the gates that spills into the Atchafalaya Spillway they need to evacuate some people and livestock from in that basin before they open it...I think they opened it in 1973-4 last time.

I use to hunt near the Marganza spillway along the Mississippi river on a friend of mine's private land...big deer running along the river, of course the high river levels will force the deer to move to higher ground or head for the farm lands and woods protected by the levys.

Actually the river has funneled so much water and sediment offshore that none is being deposited in the marshes as it would with the opening of the spillways. People having to move out of the spillway is a problem but the havoc possed on the fishing industry with the influx of fresh water and silt will desimated the oysters, speckle trout and red fish for quite a while. Some of this is being blown out of proportion but most is true...

However should the levys break or be broken by shipping traffic the consequences will be even more devastating than what happens to the fishing industry...


Besides Global Warming is all Al Gore's fault!

Thanks for the concerns guys, I should be OK on my end...I'm north of New Orleans.
There are about 2000+ people that actually live inside the Atchafalaya within the flood plane they have been warned of the opening which may happen saturday. They know of the situation and are working to move out of harms way.

The biggest fear is that breakaway barges or a ship loosing control and with the river current running at 5 to 6 knots could damage levys...it is not uncommon along the river levys to look over someone's house and see ships floating by high above the level of the house's roof.

As f this evening Mississippi river is at 17+ feet above sea level...even with the Bonnet Carré Spillway part way open. The levys protect New Orleans to 20'.

Most of the City of New Orleans and surrounding towns are below or at sea level so you can see where a levy breech would have a sever impact! Especially in heavily populated areas.

1.3 million cubic feet per second of water is flowing past Baton Rouge and 1.2 million cubic feet per second past New Orleans.

Have they imposed any restrictions on shipping speed or density on the river?
