Ugly Gun Sunday

"We are offering for sale a very nice Smith and Wesson Model 29-2 revolver in .44 Magnum with original 4" barrel and custom bull barrel 7.5" with bipod, type that extends, simmons pistol scope 4X32, original rear sight, Hogue grips, 7 speed loaders and case. This is a great deal the bull tarrel is beefy and with the bipod dead accurate for bench or hunting shooting, The original barrel looks to have maybe one round fired through it and the bull maybe a box. The scope is nice and clear and set for far away sighting. The value of this package is over $2000 so don't let it get away from you. Actual piece is pictured."

Clearly, value is in the eye of the beholder. I've yet to think of a situation in which a bipod on a pistol is of use in hunting, unless you happen to have built a bench on the end of a beanfield for knocking off deer; then again, perhaps the owner just just thought prone prairiedog shooting with a .44 Magnum would be the next big thing.

The only conceivable thing that is good for is to shoot targets from a bench.
What amuses me is that it comes with a bunch of speed loaders.

But they're so useful for the new Rapid Fire Benchrest Bullseye competitions....

I'd also love to know how their eyes can tell the difference between "maybe one round" fired through one barrel and "maybe a box" through the other.

It's like when a first responder gives me a blood pressure reading of 125/75... using an analog gauge.

Unless their eyes can pick out a blip between those even-numbered markings on the dial, I tend to believe they pulled those numbers out of their ass.

Maybe one round......maybe one case of rounds.....maybe it would be a bad idea to buy that gun, in my opinion.
