Re: Most entertaining movies no one has seen

The 1940 version of Gaslight. The 1944 version has more famous actors but is not as good a movie. I think the 1940 version is English, not Hollywood. This is, of course, the source of the phrase to "gaslight" someone. The 1940 version has a 100% Rotten Tomatoes rating, which I've seen very few of. B...

Re: Any personal experience with Accu Tek 380 ACP

The only thing I've got in 380 is a Beretta 84F. I find most 380's a bit irritating with sharp recoil mostly due to the manufacturer's need to build them as blow-back operated pistols. They would probably be funner to shoot in a locked breach gun.

If you were going to replace the .32-40, why not go to a .35 Win Special? Would it encroach into .34...
