    No problem. I did not want to seem like I was talking down to you, its just upsetting to see someone else get the short end of the stick again on these types of firearms sales. I have been burned by this selling method once before and have heard enough negative feedback from others about it that I will not attempt it again. These FFL's that do this need to change how they do business. Hopefully enough negative word gets spread around about this so they are forced to put more effort into being up front about every single firearm they sell.

    Are you pulling the slide straight back?

    If so try racking it by pushing it. Right handed gun facing left, left hand on top pushing back toward your right hand if that makes sense. Right in front of your chest so you have more power.

    Just be aware of what you are pointing it at including yourself.

    That's how I have to do it. I can't rack it otherwise.

    Who knows? Maybe it'll make my hands stronger. Good hand exercise.

    Table edge with rear sight works too.

    Someone else's table edge works even better, saves yours!

    Sure, they should import them, then sell them to dealers so you can pay twice as much as you could direct.

    I had to go to the VA today for an MRI of my mid back. I've been having some problems there.

    On the way home I decided to hit a pawn shop. I finally found one of my grail guns.

    I've been looking for a decently priced Single Six for a long time. I found a 1981 model today for$280 out the door. It even had the WMR cylinder.

    They also had a Single Six in .32 H&R Mag. That was tempting till I remembered I have a Single Seven in .327 Federal Mag.

    I’d be interested in the 32, care to share the asking price?

    I think they wanted $350 for it.
