Well I got a new gun story I don't mind sharing.I was fishing a farm pond this afternoon and before I knew it a racoon was running down a path that leads to the pond,running right at ME[:0].Boy it sure is hard to draw fast when your poopin yourself.Anyway I drew my RUGER P-345 loaded with 230 grn Federal HP's.That **** musta knew he screwed with the wrong angler 'cause he put on the brakes and rolled a few feet and dissapeared into the brush before I could shoot.So now I pull the hammer back and go lookiing for it 'cause they usually aren't out in the day unless they are sick[like rabid].I keep hearing thrashing in the catails and see movement but I don't shoot as I'm not sure of my target.When I get closer I see a small bird and a nest,the bird is caught up in some idiots old fishing line so I wade out and cut him free and it flies off.I wrapped up the line and cut it in small peices.Now I think maybe the **** was after the bird[:I]But still in broad daylight.Anyways I'm a bit proud as the **** was only ten feet away when I drew my .45 and I didnt panic or shoot myself or anything else I didnt intend to.;)The best part is I had just tried to buy snake loads before going fishing and they were out of .45's.When that **** came running I was glad I didnt have snake loads.

Will your p345 feed snake loads?

I've seen the ***** out in the day but since he charged at you something ain't right. Too bad he didn't give you a shot. If you kill one, make sure you burn it or bury it deep. Good story, reminds us why a sidearm is good to have even if you are just out fishin'.

deputy125,I dont know if they will feed,never got any to try yet.jimbo1096,my thoughts exactly thats why I looked for it afterwards.What worries me is there are families with kids and pets fishing there all the time.

Don't know if this helps or not, but snake shot rounds do feed without a hitch in my Kimber Pro carry .45...

Peace and God bless, Wolfsong.

They feed on my P-90 no trouble at all but best to test fire first.
