    Bought some 158 grain Semi Jacketed Soft Point (SJSP) .357 Magnum from Palmetto State Armory


    $21.99 for a 50 round box X 8 boxes ( 400 rounds ) =

    $175.92 + $19.00 S/H + $11.70 PA Tax = $206.62


    ...not too bad !!

    Met up with my old team members at the range mid afternoon Friday...since we all couldn't make the usual Range Day Thursday...and smoked a few hundred rounds of 10mm... Then went to the local pub and had a few beers.

    So, this morning...field stripped & cleaned those two pistols and their 12 magazines...subtracted expended rounds from the ammo count spreadsheet...and loaded up those mags for the next time.

    Then ate lunch and logged on here...

    Went down to the Post Office to pick up the genuine Sambar Stag Grips for my Colt SAA I had sent to me by a friend on another forum...if they fit, they are mine !!

    He had them fitted on his 1998 Gen3...my Peacemaker was gifted to me by the Wife at my Retirement Party in 2008. They should fit but it can be iffy.

    Pics to follow...

    Currently she wears the original Gutta Percha ( a tree sap based hard plastic from the East Indies ) black grips she came with...

    Looks like the Sambar Stag grips I just got need a little modification...

    I will hafta drill the holes for the bottom frame grip cross pin to maintain a tight fit at the bottom.

    Then a little dremel work...

    Tthe drill battery is being charged as we speak...pics to follow.

    Had to drill the holes to fit the bottom grip frame cross pin...fine point dremel some...a lot of rechecking the fit...and done.

    Not a bad job...and fill the hand great...with just enough texture for a good purchase during recoil.

    UPS Delivery Man just handed it to me at 1637 EST.

    32 hours from my laptop to my porch...where I was sitting having a beer with my friend across the road.

    Man! Why can't the top drawer of my toolbox learn to do that trick:bang Head:.
    Great video. Much better than the 'flashlight-in-the-dark-safe' videos.
