    That's Ian's rifle, by the way. And the Loyada rescue illustrates how critical a backup sidearm can be--even if it is a sixshooter.

    Those revolvers not just run of mill issued weapons. I would love to have one even though I do not shoot revolvers much any more.
    The MR 73 was standard issue with France's Gendarmerie and in some police units including Special Weapons and Tactics teams (RAID, GIGN and comparable units).The GIGN selected the MR 73 in part for its ability to almost indefinitely withstand 150 rounds of full-power ammunition during daily range practice.[citation needed] These teams also use MR 73s with Bushnell Magnum Phantom 1.5 telescopic sights and 8" and 10" barrels for tactical purposes. Over one million rounds were allegedly fired through one example.[citation needed]

    The thing about rear locking lugs. What was supposed to be an economy hunting rifle, the remington 788 was rear locking lugs in lock up and sort of became a cult gun for some since it turned out to be a very accurate rifle. In part because remington did put a good barrel on them. Only holds three shots in .308 that is sort of the maximum load for that action. I have seem them in .243 and 30-30.
