James, I apologize for taking so long to get to back to you. I got in the front sight inserts, and installed the yellow one. I've never used a yellow before, and I'm amazed how well it stands out. I went out to shoot with it today for the first time, and I was laying in a 4" pattern at 15 yards standing, shooting HSM 305 grn hard cast bear loads off-handed. Not great shooting for someone like you, but I'm pretty tickled with it. It gives me something to work with. I sure do thank you, and I owe you a moose hunt, if you ever make it up here.

Those holes you seen were from a 45-70 and from me shooting from down here....LOL

Hey James...You really should take Dwayne up on his offer.... Get a taste of the Kenai Peninsula and you may have to change your name to James from Alaska.....

are you kiddin Dewayne.....I would shoot a 8" pattern offhand at 15yds with 305gr BEAR LOADS....great that you like the yellow insert....white or yellow always stands out good for me rather then a black front sight....helps me to center the front much faster into the square notch rear when hunting...If I could...I would be there in a heartbeat lookin for moose with you guys....

Not flashy, and not cool...
Probably my Glock 10mm.
Lightweight, easy holster wear, and a good number rounds, that I can put downrange fairly quickly and still control things.

Those Dan Wesson 44 snubbies look sweet!

Seems like a good backcountry sidearm!

Looks good. Had no idea Dan Wesson made a snub 44 Mag.

I have a 480 Alaskan, and installed a Red Fiber Optic front sight on it. Black is not a good front sight color for me either.

From what I can discover through research, they only made these blued fixed snubbies for only one year in the '80's
