Each month I buy one ounce of gold and 100 rounds of .357 magnum ammo. Every six months I buy a new gun. One cannot have too much of any of those commodities. Since last year we have a new law that extends "your home is your castle" to the family pickup. So I decided to buy a new .357 snubby for the pickup, rather than take one of those found in every room and closet of the house (I have those recurring nightmares where you can never find a gun when you need one). You guessed it. No can find a Ruger SP101 or anything equivalent (was actually looking for the Taurus 8-shot stainless). Now if only they would make them out of gold, I would be a happy man. So what to do? Pull the compact 5+1 .380 ACP out of the hall bathroom? Make do with the .22 magnum 5-shot mini that lives in the bottom of an old boot in my closet? Take the SP101 I DO have out of my wife's nightstand? Or go whole hog and take the 7-inch barrel 8-shot heavy Ruger out of the freezer?
