I've been searching for the lone color I didn't have in the case.  Even the on-line search was not proving fruitful but I stumbled onto a dealer last weekend who actually had two of them.  Paid a little more than the others but it filled the last slot.

Got this from my daughters boyfriend for $30 old Hamilton model 27 single shot 22 really needs some time put into it so I'm thinking a winter project might be a pretty cool gun I have 4 grandsons!

Not yet I’ve got a few other projects to finish first. But I will make it go fast.

I made the mistake of stopping in the local gun shop today. We all started talking guns and one of the guys mentioned the Taurus Spectrum. I wasn't at all familiar with that gun so they pulled one out of the case for me to check out. A couple of the guys there said they had bought one and both guys were really pleased with the gun. To make a long story short, I plunked the money down and bought one. They are available in a rainbow of colors, but mine is exactly what you see in the photo. I didn't think I wanted to carry a pink or purple one. :rolleyes:

I'll pick the gun up Saturday. They only had LRN ammo in stock, but are supposed to get a shipment of ammo in tomorrow. They'll have 4 or 5 different home defense, fragmenting types of ammo when I go in Saturday. I might decide to go with the RIP fragmenting round. I went ahead and bought a new, soft touch, concealed carry holster for this new gun. When the gun is in the holster it is extremely comfortable in the 3 o'clock position inside my waistband. It's a fairly slim gun and the holster is minimalistic so there is nearly no bulge at all.

While I quite like the .380, my all time favorite, is the Walther PPK/S.

A fine gun, for certain.

I inadvertently posted this response twice, but by the time I figured out that I had, there seemed to be no way to delete my last post. Sorry about that, but yes, my PPK/S was a real sweetheart.

These showed up today:D

These will let me go from the factory single piston calipers and 11.57" (or thereabouts) rotors to the 2 piston Charger Pursuit Package calipers and 13.39" (also or thereabouts) rotors on the front of the car.

Scored a pickup load of smallblock Chebby engine parts...blocks, heads, cranks, etc. Some of it low-performance scrap iron (though there's probably enough stuff to build a decent 305 to replace the one with the cracked block in the GMC), but some decent 350 stuff mixed in, including one 4-bolt main block that should clean up with a .020" bore. One complete TH-350 (unknown condition) too. Same guy had a pair of 351C small-port heads, just what I needed to finish up the junkyard-parts scrounge for a 351 Clevor Ford build.

Can't beat the price: $0.00.  B)

I don't know. The heads and pan were off and the pistons were out. Definitely a 4-bolt, and my calibrated fingernail in the bores says there's less than a .010" ridge, so I'm pretty sure she'll clean up at .020" over...if she crack-tests OK. If I get REAL lucky, one of the cranks will be a decent 307, the last big thing I need to build a junkyard-special big-journal 327. Already have a nice pair of double-hump heads.

Your all set then..... Yes, the 307 and large journal 327 had the same stroke length... I'd still have the crank rebalanced just in case... ;)
