My guess is if S&W had to design the cylinder to accommodate a rimmed cartridge that large, the cylinder would have had to have been a greater diameter than it is now. Very good question, though.
You mean that happens in WV? I thought that only happend with the idiots in Delaware (where a rifled Hi power bullet can litteraly cross the state) and places like that when people get their guns out once a year and head in to the woods in droves.mikegunner said:And --- Ed ---- The gun is more of a conversation piece --- I have not stepped back in the woods since about 10 years ago when I was almost shot by an unauthorized unknown hunter who took a shot at a deer without any concern of what was beyond.

Oh heck yes it happens here --- probably worse because we have more ******** and woodticks than you can imagine!! The whole story is even better on what happened to me --You mean that happens in WV?

Man that's a shame, the woods are such a great place to be. But I guess it's the smartest thing to do, Can't push your luck...mikegunner said:I promptly walked up the hill to where my father-in-law and the vehicle was, emptied my rifle, cased it, and have never stepped back into the woods (and probably never will).
Just last season in PA an elderly man shooting from a lawn chair in his back yard shot at a girl on horseback because he thought it was a dear.mikegunner said:Ed --
I go into the woods to go to state parks and things like that --- just NEVER during hunting season. Every year here someone even gets shot during squirrel season.Mike
I miss some things like camping and winter backpacking but there's still plenty I can do. :lol: The difference is how high you break your injury is. I have complete upper body strength and mobility so I drive, roll arond the neighborhood, etc. I first got interested in shooting shortly after I broke my back. (car accident. If I had my seatbelt on I'd be walking today) My two sons -- 8 1/2 and 5 1/2, don't know me any other way so it seems perfectly normal to them.mikegunner said:Sorry to hear you can't get out in the woods anymore. Alot of us take simple things like that for granted. Mike
Wow, very similar I can see how you would make the mistake. Deer, dear.Just last season in PA an elderly man shooting from a lawnchair in his back yard shot at a girl on horseback because he thought it was a dear.
