Thanks quickdtoo for the info and for the link to R&R Arms. They are nice folks to deal with. When I ordered my gun the guy that took the order said "man those guns have really been selling". When I ordered mine there were 28 left. If anyone wants one I wouldn't wait.
The only problem I had with them was they didn't ship the rifle right away, they sat on it for about a week after the order was paid for and confirmed for some reason.

Its too bad this isn't a mainstay item.
I recieved my Handi in 357 today. I haven't shot it but have spent some time looking at it. What a neat little rifle. Its very solid feeling too. I may replace the wood stocks with synthetic and hopefuly save a little weight. This with my 20ga Tamer with a regular buttstock just might be my two favorite guns. I would feel well armed with both of these in an emergency.
You need to complete it by threading your sling through one of these:
Jake I already have a 12 round belt slide that my mother wore when she was on the sheriffs dept. I don't like ammo on the sling because it can swing around and pull you off target with its weight. I do have 4 new Bianche speed strips. I guess those would do in a pinch.
I am glad you brought up the ammo belts. I had forgot about having one. I was trying to remember if their was an ammo sleeve that would fit on the buttstock like I have for my 20ga shotgun. I was at Academy earlier and forgot to look. I was still in shock at the price of boat motors.
I guess I could get some bandoliers and wear them crossed over my shoulders like a Mexican Bandito.
I am looking at the Talo Trapper and the standard synthetic with the 22" barrel as a possible host for a suppressor. Do these have the same barrel twist rate and would it be the 1:18 3/4 or 1:15 1/2 that is listed in the FAQ's at GBO under the .357 chambering? Are the barrel profiles the same or is the Talo a heavier profile? I'd be shortening the barrel on the standard to 18" also.
Sorry, I have no idea on the answer to your questions. The barrel is stout.
I just ordered a TALO in 45-70 today. Thanks for the heads up, Jake . Lonnie.

hi Jake , I have been thinking about ordering one of these but have heard different stories about it being on a SB1 frame or a SB2 frame. have you checked to be sure it is a SB2. I want something I can change to other barrels other than a shotgun.....thanks.... Larry
