Re: 10" barrel T/C experience
I know several fellows that have a contender chambered in 30-30 and they like them. A lot of fellows like them because you can readily buy the ammo.
About twenty years ago, a friend left me shoot his contender chambered in .357 Herrett. As I was preparing to fire the handgun, he hollered "Wait, Wait...Let me pronounce you man and gun." I fired off that shot and several more and decided I just had to get one of these.
One of the last times I was at the range, there were two PA State Troopers there shooting their handguns at targets about 3 yards away. I posted a turkey head target at 50 yards. I heard one of the troopers say that I might as well throw rocks. I fired three shots, hitting the turkeys head. I retrieved the target and walked over to the troopers to show them. The trooper that made the remark said he was watching through his binoculars and asked to see the gun. I told him that's what he needed to carry. If a bank robber is stupid enough to run away, just let him get out about 200 yards and cut him in half! As Mugsy posted above, it's a devastating cartridge to go hunting with.
Faith sees the invisible, believes the incredible and receives the impossible!
