    The old P-series Rugers sucked. The new SR's are very serviceable.
    Nothing better than long range shooting with peep sights. If you get good at that, it gives you a feeling of great confidence.

    A Taurus. I've fired probably close to a thousand rounds through that thing in the last 25 or so years and it has never jammed, never misfired on me. It's accurate enough to 20 to 25 yards.

    But, I'm not a big pistol fan. To my thinking if they're that close it's easier to use a sword, knife, or simply give them the "chair" WWE style. But, you never know... That's why I like a big heavy all metal pistol. It works great as a club.

    Never had much use for pistols. Oh, it's the only one I own too.

    So, say what you will, for me it gets the job done. How can you complain about something that works reliably every time?

    Oh, I really prefer shooting black powder. It's fun. Have a Sharps .54 and a Maynard Highwall in .40. The later uses modified .303 British cartridges. Have bullet molds for both. It's fun using the micrometer peep sights and trying to get good groups at 200 or 300 yards that way. That is a real test of skill.

    Now, you want crap in a pistol, buy a Ruger.

    Correct, for most states but some don't expunge anything, unless it is done by the Governor.... fat chance.

    Technically, felons can buy and possess such weapons.

    It would have to be a felony conviction. The only misdemeanor that disqualifies you is Domestic Violence. Scroll down to questions 11.a-11.l. if he wasn't convicted with the attendant records, it is up to the purchaser to voluntarily answer addiction questions.

    I found the FBI's assertions to be vague, which leads me to believe that it may be the opening salvo in the battle to "toughen" gun purchase restrictions.
    A misdemeanor weapons violation and other violations would also disqualify you in certain areas.

    Varies by state. In Texas, ten years after the sentence was served, if no other felonies have accrued, rights are restored.

    Keeping in mind that a lot of people out walking around are still serving their sentence on parole.

    Even felons, including federal ones, can buy and own firearms manufactured before 1895. So, they could always buy something old like a colt revolver.
