My mother in law passed away and left me these two items. She was a wonderful woman and when when she was ill we went back east numerous times to do what we could do for her.. On one of these visits she relayed how she had the .41 Mag loaded for home defense.(?). Anyway at some point she had the .41 Mag in her hand and it fired...which is an incredibly scary thing... and punctured a good size hole in the ceiling. She said he she could not hear for several days...which you have to smile at. Upon hearing that when I was back I immediately unloaded the handgun and tucked the ammo safely back in my carry on. After a week or so it was time to fly back to Az....and we were at the airport going through the dreaded security screening. I saw bag disappear in the tunnel and watched as they selected my bag for further screening. They started wiping it down and no doubt picked up some residue from the ammunition. Well look out...they got all knotted up and and called for back up while I stood there and wondered ..did I really take all the rounds out....did I get all six ?..or did I leave one...or course it is my job to doubt myself at this point. They rubbed it until I thought perhaps they were going to put excessive wear on my carry on and casting sideways looks at me they grudgingly let it pass... much to their disappointment . Anyway to the disappointment of all concerned at the Indianapolis International airport I am a free man among you.
A S&W 66-2 .357 Mag
A S&W 58 .41 Mag
Both of which I would not trade for the world as she was truly a wonderful woman.
Out of every one hundred men, ten shouldn't even be there, eighty are just targets, nine are the real fighters, and we are lucky to have them, for they make the battle. Ah, but the one, one is a warrior, and he will bring the others back.
