Currently winning the bid on a Diamondback Sidekick cheapy 22 revolver. Will know if I win in approximately 2 minutes! What's everyone else bidding tomorrow's paycheck on?

Nope. I have a Kimber Subalpine 30-06 I bought in Idaho this past summer that needs scope and mounts sorting.

Had a hardon to bid on several CZ/ 715 Dan Wesson Pistol Packs for a while now, disposable income too damn tight at the moment (thanks FJB!) I could do something rash and accumulate stupid debt for a nice gun, that I don't really need (at all) or wait the year before things smooth out. I can wait (probably).

Had a DW 44 Magnum pistol pack a while ago, shot lights out and tons of fun.

For $250 shipped I couldn't say no to one of these. https://diamondbackfirearms.com/sidekick/ If it doesn't shoot too well, I'm not out much and it should be great for practicing. Certainly cheaper than shooting 100s of 357/38 has been this last year.

Thaaaanks for not helping! grin Shot really nice? They are all that, aren't they? Do you think yours would have out-shoot a typical 80' - 90's vintage Model 29 or 629?
I'd be happy with a .357 set right now. I'm sure I'll get about 10 Nigerian gun trader in MN PMs here 5 minutes after I post this... shocked

Anytime! Always happy to help friends make poor financial decisions lol. Was definitely tighter than my friend's 6 inch S&W 29-3. The both shot really nicely. The double action on the Smith is smoother, and it is lighter. The single action was glass rod smooth on both, I'd say the DW had a slight edge on overall accuracy. That barrel sleeve really helps and let's you set a damn tight barrel gap if you want. They're also definitely built stronger than the 29s.

Bought something off Gunbroker a while back. Kinda pissed me off about them taxing me on a used item and then charging me a fee on top of it as well. They managed to up my purchase price by about 10%. Kinda done with that. Guns international from now on.

There’s a lot of overlap but Gun Broker and Guns International to some extent cater to different markets.

They show up often enough, I bet I can snag one! I swear I thought I had heard they had short, heavy but smooth DA pulls?

Don’t get me wrong, it is very smooth, it just stacks or gets heavier towards the end whereas I’d describe the Smith as being a more linear feeling pull. The DW is overall a better constructed revolver with tighter lockup than the Smith I was comparing with that day. Both had fairly high round count through them, and the Smith showed it a bit more in cylinder end play etc.

Same here. DW revolvers are robust well built revolvers with above average triggers.

The pre lock S&W 29/629 revolvers (no experience with newer models) have exceptional triggers.

Outright bought a T3X Superlite '06 with part of my oil royalty check (biggest one ever!) Boring chambering, but need one in the stable. Polly be boringly accurate too - just like last one, a T3. Need to see first hand what the action port improvements are grin

Went to Cabelas with a buddy tonight for a new pair of hunting boots for him and he walked out with an over under and 2 pairs of wool socks.
