I cannot remark to this thread because the BIBLE(the most hated book on this planet) cannot be referred to on this forum, without someone going spastic and the thread being deleted! Suffice it to say, teach people they are animals and they will act like animals! Destroy the family, destroy the natio...

Times change, society changes, rules change. Sometimes those changes are for the better, sometimes not. When I was in school, carrying a pocketknife was ok, and having a shotgun locked in the trunk of your car wouldn't have been a cause for concern, at least not during hunting season. On the other ...

I carried a pocket knife with a 3 inch blade in school back in the day! I think I was 10, and carried on occasion up till graduation!(84') The real terror spreaders are our mainstream news media outlets! They have everyone so scared, even the littlest things get so blown out of proportion! A felony ...

I guess you never saw a 598 class boomer. The specs you see on them are misleading, since they always list the beam at the added on missile compartment. She was originally Thresher class. In fact, in engine room lower level, outboard of the starboard main condenser, her original hull number was wri...

I'm with you there, but I also love a good revolver! A snubby in a pancake holster becomes invisible and very comfy to carry! I also love single action capability, which is a benefit at longer ranges! :)

Besides Spyderco, I really only like Victorinox though I have been eyeballing a ZT 566 lately. I love mine! At first I had to remove the assist spring to open with the stud, but then I put it back in and just broke it in! It took a while, but now it's a wonderfully sized dual-opening knife for EDC!...

There are some large frame .38 Special revolvers where that would be safe, but it would definitely be risky with a J frame S&W, especially an older one. Knew one fellow who did it to a Colt Officers Model Match he occasionally hunted with and another who'd trim .357 Mag. cases to .38 Spl. length, l...

I have a grizzly chew utility blade like that I got 10 years ago from one of their reps at the gas station I worked at. I used that thing constantly over the years, and it did real well in my years on a submarine. A simple and hard working tool! Which boat, or boats, were you on? I was also a subma...

I think I would buy more SE if I was willing to carry two knives. But I'm not.
That's why there's the combo edged knives! Sorry to see them go, but less people seem to like them these days, for whatever reason! :(

Not exactly true. The chambers are on a .38 are shorter, but that does not necessarily mean the cylinder will be shorter. Often it just means that the "unrifled barrel" portion of the cylinder between the end of the chamber and the front face of the cylinder is a bit longer on the .38. Which is not...

Thank you, You answered my question. I was just curious about the outer dimensions of the cylinder (whether one was longer then the other). Trying to decide if I should get a .38 or .357. Since they are the same size I will most likely go with the .357. If the cylinders are the same size, then this...

Question to you revolver guys, Is S&W J frame .357 cylinder the same size and the .38 cylinder? The cylinder on 38 Specials should be shorter than 357's. That's so you cannot chamber a 357 in a 38 Special because the round will protrude from the shorter cylinder, preventing you from closing the cyl...
