So I'm not a fast draw but I was curious as to the truth of the +1 rule so many follow even with guns like the glock that have no external safety switch. So I did some testing, on myself, to see what the time difference really was if you have to chamber a round.

Yep. I like it very much, Put the extended mag on it to get 7 +1 and a full grip. Not much bigger than my bodyguard 380 though it is heavier. P938 Nightmare. Night sights included.

This was gifted to me by a friend for my handyman services over the years. Original Walther P99 .40

Pumped about 100 rounds through it last weekend, and must admit I LOVE THIS GUN

Look for ammoe rated for the old stuff like trapdoor rifles and you will be good to go. If you would hand load, you could give yourself as much or as little pain as you could stand.

I'm going to try this gun with those Hornady 325gr.. Biggest rifle I use was a 30-06 with 180gr ammo.. the kick was as much as my 12gauge with slugs.. will 325gr ammo kick a lot more!??

I'd hold on to it pretty good. I think that scope is likely to hit you in the eye depending on the eye relief. It looks set back pretty far. No worry about ammo. Hornady 325 isn't bad. It'll kick like a shotgun.

Let us know after you shoot it a while. I took the scope off my 45-70. I'm interested to see what you think, although your shooting conditions might be completely different too.

I did that once hunting in the woods with my Marlin 45-70 gov't lever action. It was rather dim lighting but while I popped myself in the eyebrow I still killed the deer. So I got the better end of the shot.

The real problem is that the scope is mounted too high for the shooter to cheek the stock properly. What's needed is a lace-on cheekpiece to raise the stock comb height. The stock is OK for iron sights, but not for a scope.

Obviously the design of the stock (comb) and receiver/hammer is such that it isn't really designed for a scope; although, it doesn't appear to have iron sights.

I know a few people that have gotten a scope to the face with higher power loads due to short eye relief, but it seems the shooter understands that already. If I were scoping that, I might try a short mounted scout scope. I don't know NY hunting, but I don't really see the value in a scope on a gun like that (except for the fact there are no iron sights on it).

is a single shot with a very powerful bullet..
IMO makes perfect sense to try to be as accurate as possible with that ONE shot.

the scope is a 4x12, @ 4 it has a very generous and comfortable eye relief, @ 12 you need to get a little closer to see clearly, maybe 3 1/2 inches or so..


the scope mount I put is an H&R integral mount made for this gun.

I believe H&R makes that gun in 500 S&W Magnum. I may try to pick up one of those. I have two revolvers in that caliber and think it'd make a smashing (literally) 100 yard big-game rifle, similar to the 45/70. I have used single-shots for hunting for years, mostly Ruger No. 1 rifles which I love. I can only think of one time in 45 years of big game hunting where I have taken a second shot. There are strategies for reloading single-shots which, if practiced, can make a follow-up shot a reasonable possibility.
