Harry’s Holsters Revolver Concealment

I reviewed the Taurus 856 T.O.R.O. here shortly after its 2023 SHOT Show release. Taurus caught most in the industry by surprise with it, including holster makers.

The Taurus 856 Executive Grade

I haven’t had much direct experience with Taurus revolvers over the years. I’ve shot a handful of them in .22 LR, .38 Special, .357 Magnum, and .44 Magnum, but outside of the .22, I’ve never fired more than a few cylinders through each.

That collection recently expanded by one with the addition of the Single-Six’s new little brother, the Ruger Super Wrangler. Continue reading “The Ruger Super Wrangler”

Some Thoughts on the .41 Remington Magnum

The .41 Remington Magnum has been with us for nearly 60 years now. When it was introduced, several people in the industry felt they deserved credit for the idea of the new cartridge. It’s generally accepted that Elmer Keith was the driving force in making the concept a reality. Continue reading “Some Thoughts on the .41 Remington Magnum”

The Day the Barkers Brought Death to the Ozarks

Mike recently asked me about the volume of notorious crimes in Arkansas. Our state’s history is rich with stories about politicians, desperados, gunslingers of all sorts, feuds, mass murders, war reconstruction, Wild West and Depression Era outlaws, and modern monsters.
