    The single vs. double action question in mostly about fashion. It's like a Harley handgun (I just flinched).
    There are plenty of SA pistols being sold today but Freedom Arms is referred to as the "Rolex" of this style of pistol.
    A large portion of my working life I was a Die Maker - who will appreciate the quality of workmanship (when it gets here).

    Ahh, ejection, I hadn't thought about that but it makes sense.

    That's where I stop following, why would single vs double action make a difference?

    I don't care for double action since I can't hit using it, yet I've never owned a single action revolver

    The 9 mm cylinder positions the shell at the front shoulder. Moon clips are not needed with a single action revolver because the shell is ejected by the rod along side the barrel.
    Moon clips are needed with double action pistols with swing out cylinders.
    I inherited a life time supply of 9 mm ammo . . .

    I looked on their website but couldn't find the info for what I'm curious about. I'm guessing that it doesn't use moon clips since there's a second cylinder, does the 9mm cylinder use the exposed shoulder at the end of the cartridge to set depth?

    357 and 9mm is a nice combination of cylinders. Now that is 3 calibers of ammo that you can't find because they are out of stock!

    Though maybe 357 isn't so bad, I know for me 10mm has been something I can still find.

    4 1/2" each direction counts as 9" right??

    My wife might pretend to believe that is 9" - but it is 4 1/2".
    This pistol has two cylinders - 357 & 9 mm.

    Did you mean 9 inch barrel?

    Made a trip to Knoxville a few weeks ago to pick up another Vmax, this one is a 2018 blacked out edition with some tasteful mods including full exhaust and tune.

    Yep I've got to assume $60k over 4 years, and that was back in Ohio in the 90s...

    Bought another House. In Dubuque Iowa, right at the start of the twisty roads. 140 years old on the buffs.

    It is a block from Loras college where my son goes. Interest rates are crazy low and I didn't like paying his rent. He'll get a few friends to move in and I'll charge them rent. Only thing moved in so far is the kitchen.

    house3.jpg Thinking about the wife and I moving in when the oldest graduates college and the youngest graduates HS which will be in 2.5 years.
