    I favor the G20 because I have one with an SI installed DP Pro. Plan to take it with me Elk hunting next year.

    This thread brings up a point that I often consider. My "trail gun" is an absolutely beautiful blued S&W Model 29 in .44 Magnum with a 3 inch barrel (It's a TALO special edition that I bought used on a whim). It carries like a dream, has a single-action trigger like glass, and is comically loud when shot at an indoor range. I often wonder if I would ever hear again if I had to touch off six rounds rapid-fire at a charging beast without ear protection.

    Every year I consider selling it and purchasing a Glock 20 with the intention of sending it for Suarez treatment, and every year I don't. I'm in NY, so I'd max out with 11 rounds of 10MM on board in the G-20, which is still almost twice the capacity of the S&W.

    That said, I'm planning a trip to Glacier NP next summer, so perhaps this decision will become less academic when I'm in grizzly country with my wife and kids. We'll see.

    It's OK; Bill doesn't know, either.

    Zing!

    Really, I haven't heard that term either.

    Mr. Anthony wins today's trophy.

    I deciphered "Hillary Hole" to mean one of the new S&W revolvers with an integral trigger lock. When they were introduced, many people feared that they might inadvertently lock the gun. I've never heard of an unlocked gun locking itself. Most people who have them simply throw away the key. The keys themselves seem to be made of a metal that was designed to immediately begin rusting into powder.

    I have no great fear of the guns with the integral lock, but I would prefer to not have that feature. I certainly would never use the lock.

    I had a 640 with a lock. I want to say the trigger wasn't as good as the old 36 without the lock. Traded them both.

    I don't own a wheelgun, but I do like that they don't leave much evidence behind.

    I own 4 revolvers: 2 44 Magnum, 1 45 ACP, and one 44 Special (a son of same style reissued the Charter Arms Bulldog). The 2 44 Mags (S&W 69 and 329PD) are lightweight (the 329PD is really TOO lightweight) revolvers designed for backwoods treks. The .45ACP (S&W 325TR) is just fun (although, with 45 super, would be a very good back packing gun as well). The Bulldog was just cool. All of them are niche weapons that happen to be fun to shoot. I wouldn’t pick one of them as a primary firearm unless I was afraid of creatures larger than myself (those are few and far between)
