october ’71

In honor of Dan Wesson’s 50th anniversary, we look back to October 1971 when Col. Jeff Cooper reviewed a Dan Wesson revolver in .357 Magnum with interchangeable barrels — a 2.5-inch snub nose and a 4-inch option. Today, we would call what Dan Wesson did as “modular.” Back then it was revolutionary. It was the first revolver to offer this flexibility and featured large, adjustable sights making it easy to rezero. Cooper proved it was a shooter using full-power loads and scoring 4-inch groups at 50 yards.…

reader blowback

RUGER SR380? Has Ruger ever made a .380 in the SR series? I have talked to people who said they’ve heard of such a gun. Is there one? Gary Toop Email In short, no. The LC380 was developed and put into production to fill such a category. It is remarkably easy to rack and shoot, and I’d encourage anyone with hand-strength challenges to give it a try. — E. Poole VAPORIZING BULLETS? I took the new Performance Center T/C Long Range Rifle (LRR) in .243 Win. with a 1:10-inch twist to a precision rifle class with Jim Kauber at The Site. I was shooting 87-grain Hornady V-Max ammunition for the duration. On the last day of the class, we were shooting movers at 600 yards and after a little while both my spotter and I had…

kudos african sporting creations

When I read the short article on African Sporting Creations in the August issue (“Range Bag,” page 57), I felt compelled to share my experience. It is true they stock some of the coolest, one-of-a-kind, high-quality, safari gear, but that’s not what makes the company special. Customer service is what distinguishes African Sporting Creations. A year ago, I bought an Arno Bernard knife from them. When I visited their booth at the Dallas Safari Club in January, I mentioned to the owner that, while I loved the knife, I wish I had bought a bigger one. Without hesitation, the owner told me to send the smaller knife back and that he would give me full credit towards a larger one. He never asked if my smaller knife had been sharpened,…

african safari essentials

I take exception to the Safari Essentials article in the August issue (“Range Bag,” page 57). In it, you show items that are very much luxuries rather than essential gear. One does not have to spend more than around $100 on a solid, quiet pair of boots that will work just fine in the bush. For about half the cost of the shooting sticks, you can get a Primos Jim Shockey hunting tripod that is more adjustable and was what my professional hunter used on my safari to South Africa. Also, it is doubtful you will do any of your own skinning while you are there, but should the need arise, there are several good skinning knives that cost well under $100. The same applies to the binocular strap. Hunting…

to press or pull?

In reading August issue’s “Reader Blowback” (page 8), I agree with Greg Simpson’s comments on Jeremy Stafford’s article about trigger reset. In the 1960s, and while in law enforcement, officers were trained by the FBI in firearms and using pistols in close quarters. At that time, the FBI preferred revolvers rather than semiautomatic pistols. Trigger reset was new to me, so I tried Stafford’s advice. I discovered that it works! I have also noticed that some of your readers that write in have a hostile tone. A difference of opinion can be expressed in a polite manner. There is no acceptable excuse for being rude. The topic in that letters section was trigger pull and we were given a lesson in the use of the word “press.” My position is…

the classics

JOEL HUTCHCROFT, editor of Shooting Times, owns a superb example of Dan Wesson’s Model 15-2. This was a barrel-convertible revolver that was designed by Karl R. Lewis and first reviewed by Col. Jeff Cooper in Guns & Ammo ’s October 1971 issue. (Visit gunsandammo.com to read Cooper’s take on an early Model 15 in .357 Magnum.) It’s worth noting that Lewis had also designed the M79 40mm single-shot grenade launcher as well as the Colt Trooper in .357 Mag. Daniel B. Wesson II worked at Smith & Wesson from 1938 to 1963. There, he had a reputation for strict quality control management before his family sold controlling interest of S&W to Bangor Punta in 1965. Less than three years later, in 1968, Wesson incorporated his own manufacturing business and started producing…
