An Odd Group...

What could a Rem 700 SPS Varmint .223, a NMBH .357, and a Taurus TCP .380 have in common? Actually these three guns are what I used to remove three nuisance armadillos while in the woods Friday afternoon. The dry and unseasonably warm conditions had the little critters very active. I was carrying the varmint rifle and the Blackhawk when I saw the first two hard-shelled pests. I used the opportunity to foul the clean barrel of my rifle to kill the first one at 20yds. The next armadillo was 45yds away and it took two shots with the revolver to connect. The final one was in the trail as I drove out of the woods. The big guns were put away, but the .380 was in its holster in my right front pocket. My first Critical Defense bullet just winged him @ 7yds, but it slowed him down. The next bullet fired from 5yds finished the job. I saw five deer while hunting, but never took a shot. All my killing was done with these...

Maybe the only thing odd about them is the Number 3.
They have more in common with them than you give Them credit for.
They all have Black on them.
They all work just Fine.
They made you Smile.
They all need to be Cleaned now.
Me think's You get the Picture.
Good for you.

Nothing odd about them!
They all went "bang" when you pulled the trigger and did what they were suppose to do...................so all is good.

Both comments above bring up a good point, that is all the guns worked and did the job. I have always had total confidence in the Remington, and we all know how tough and dependable Ruger single-actions are. It is the Taurus PT738 that I need occasional reassurance on. I have gotten rid of almost all of the Rossi's and Taurus' I had due to reliability issues, but have kept this little TCP.380. It is my constant companion due to its light weight so it has to be reliable. It gets carried more than it gets shot so it is comforting when it comes out of the Blackhawk pocket holster and runs perfectly. It has always fed fmj and Gold Dot ammo fine, but I have less than a box of Critical Defense through it and am still building confidence in the combination.

You are so right. My Great Uncle was born, lived, farmed, and died on the same piece of S. Georgia land. His guns were few, and none were any kind of "special purpose" firearm like we have today. If he ever owned a pistol I never knew of it. His gun rack had three long guns in it. A pump .22, a Winchester .25-20, and a 12ga SxS shotgun. His most versatile gun lived behind the seat of his truck, a Savage O/U .22lr/20ga.
