Very Good eye
In fact it will fire both 45cal auto and 410 shot shell
Yeah, I knew it was a heavy caliber, but I did not go into the apparent craziness of firing a two-pound round from a half-ounce gun you could hide in your fist. Good way to dislocate your wrist and elbow.

Carry for bears? Really? That'd be like shooting Mongo -- you'll only piss him off. *IF* you think you have a really good chance of meeting Smokey's Evil Son on your hike and you want protection... for another measly pound you can carry your .454 Casull.

And the plucky hiker is gonna haveta use those oversize trucker sights (that just got hung up in his top-of-the-line automatic tent bag to line up on a bear that is right on top of him? Uh-huh, yup... sounds reasonable.

It is a novelty buy-to-own popgun.

Carty: I spent TWO consecutive Christmases in an electric wheelchair -- shoulder and neck busted along with leg, so "crunches" were out of court.

I walk without pain or a limp. The only thing, however, on me that runs is my nose.

(or my stockings when I am in drag...)

Gimme a break on not running: I wuz borned in 1940 <-- Yeah, that ain't a fargin typo.

So tighten up your happy rope. The hooman bod is astounding in it's ability to recover. (Especially if you are half-Klingon.)

Is doc still kicking, I guess he stopped selling his ISO machines
Dave is not only still around, but is one of the leading forces behind the ESEW Elephant preservation projects and who charmed me onto the advisory board.

I had a 45LC/.410 derringer and while a handful, it was not as bad as you might think. I usually carried .410 slugs in mine. I figured in a situation where I was using a belly gun, that I probably wouldn't object to the heavy recoil.

Standard 45LC rounds aren't that hot, because of all the old revolvers around, though is the same case length as the 357 and 44 magnums, so can be loaded up to magnum velocities for a gun built to take the pressure.

  • Elephants have a highly developed brain and the largest of all the land mammals. The brain is 3 or 4 times larger than that of humans although but consumes a smaller portion of overall body weight. They say an elephant never forgets, and this is why!

Yes, Mary Anne is well too and helping keep Dave anchored. Like my relationship with Grayfox, who is the anchor to my wings that supports me but keeps me from flying too far.

Ever wondered where the idea for the Dumbo movie came from?

Elephants have been trained to paint pictures on canvas, but the thing that blows me away is their compassion for one another and how that carried over when the Elephant Whisperer died and all the elephants on the island came and circled his house for several days trumpeting holding an elephant wake.

Not only that they felt that much compassion for him, but how did they know and how was it communicated between each other and the other herds?
