Friday Gun Pr0n #341

Today's gun is an odd duck, brought to us courtesy of Matt P., who graciously shared her at the Sixth Annual Northeast Bloggershoot:

Yes, that really is a Wildey in .45 Winchester Magnum. This particular model has the 5" barrel, but barrel lengths up through 14" are available. .45 WinMag is a handful, but the gun weighs four pounds, so it's not terribly arduous to shoot. Of course, that's if you don't consider that the ammo runs about $1 a round.

That's one of the things I love the most about the bloggershoots. No matter how extensive your gun collection may be, no matter what your collecting *thing* is, chances are pretty good that someone else will have something that you've never shot before. And chances are equally good that they'll offer it up with a full magazine or cylinder just so you can say you've done it.

Thanks for sharing her with us, Matt!

That is all.

Now that's pretty. Looks almost like something you'd shoot androids or aliens with.

"Of course, that's if you don't consider that the ammo runs about $1 a round."

That's why I reload.

$1 a round?

Have you priced 20 round and 25 round boxes of Self Defense HP ammunition lately?

How are the grip panels attached? I see no screws.

I got to have a little range time with one of those. That's a gas adjust just in front of the trigger guard. An interesting invention indeed.
