    1st review

    I was moonlighting as a secuirty officer in los angeles, ca. I watched 3 guys rob a grocery store. I had no handgun at the time. A friend had bought a handgun the same model I later purchased. He shot one man point blank (10-12 ft) knocked the man backwards across the counter and face down. Anoither man he shot in the leg, and actually swept his leg out from underneath him, like a shotgun blast. The 3 d man he shot through the cash register opening the till at the same time. He was arrested and cleared of all charges, thanks to the witnesses in the grocery store and the two of us working with him. The County Attorney stated: Dead men tell no tales. The .41 magnum by far, although cumbersome for most, has been my favorite. I had 3/4 of an ounce shaved from the barrel and had newer custom grips added the handgun fits my hand perfectly. the barrel is just under 7-1/4 inches long. The orange ramp
    front sight in low light or dusk is perfect for sighting as well as the white outlined dove tail.
    The holster has the bottom of it cut out so the barrel fit into the holster with out any problems.
    In the early 80s, I was the only Security Officer known then as the "Dirty Harry" of the group.

    I love this gun, if it only had a modified Barrel on it with a x8 Scope on it too.
