What to do w/ .45's

#1 Post by CDFingers » Tue Jun 13, 2017 9:13 am

It's likely that none of us ever will have to shoot a bad guy with our guns, which is a good thing. So, what does one do with a perfectly good 250 gr LRNFP? Why, you shoot an old stainless steel tea kettle with it, that's what. Waste not, want not.

Didn't I just see that Stainless Steel 1930's Tea Kettle get valued for 1,500 bucks on the Antique Roadshow?

This is a sculpture--worth way more.

I went out with an artist when I was an undergrad (back during the Carter and Reagan administrations). Was always astonished at the high cost of art supplies.
