Things are crazy in NYS. Anti-gun governor has pounced on political opportunity. His proposals include bans, confiscation of semi-automatic rifles, limiting pistols to 7-round mags, prohibiting internet ammo purchases, etc. I've got stocks of ammo and guns, but I don't know how the future will shake out. Figure for now I'm going to put more time into shooting my .22's. Ammo is cheaper and there is more of it, and it is more easily replaced. So had plenty of fun today with my S&W stainless 8-shot 3" barrel j-frame model 63. Since I have a 642, and the wife has a 637, for deep concealment carry guns, it sort of keeps us in practise for those Was working on double-action shots, as well as quick single-action with the off-hand thumb cocking. All done at 20 yards, in the snow, plinking against a small steel silhouette, for that rewarding sound like Lucy hearing the nickle rattling the can in Charlie Brown When I first got the 63 about a year ago, the DA was stiff, but I think it is starting to break in nicely now. I swear, I was shooting it as fast as a semi-auto Way faster than cocking with the off-hand thumb. My next handgun in a year might be another revolver. And my wife is thinking about a lever-action .357, .44, or .30-30. I would have steered her toward an AR before this current mess, but I don't even know if we will be able to buy them anymore. Kinda makes me want to go old school now and work on revolver and lever-action skills. Might even eventually drift into single-action Cowboy shooting competitions someday. I've got a Colt SAA like .22lr, so maybe next get a Colt SAA or a Ruger in .357. Or maybe I'll stick with the old school DA revolver learning for a while There's lots of future and lots of guns yet to buy, no matter how much the anti-gun people hate America, freedom, and self-defense.
