I have two Labs - don't know how well he'd get on with them, but one of them is nearing the end of his life - he's a big old Yellow lab we rescued about 4 years ago, and he was old when we got him.

I thought that was a solid review. It let's me know one thing: if I'm going to get an SA-35, I need to wait on it until Springfield works out some production issues.

I have no qualms about shooting 45 ACP, 357 mag, 41 mag, 44 mag etc. Take 44 mag for example. The prices for 44 mag ammo are borderline outrageous IMO. If you already have...
