    If I wanted to kill a bowling pin

    If I wanted to shoot a bowling pin I'd use one of these. The shiny one is my 41mag Redhawk that I've owned for 30 or so years. The mod 57 has a 8 3/8 barrel. It's got a lot less mileage than my ruger. These old long barrels work for me.

    I have used my 57 in the bowling pin shoots and is very effective. However, in competition I switched to using my 8 shot 627 in 38 special with Moon Clips for speed at reloading. But the old 41 mag will knock them over with emphasis. Those are real nice guns.

    I'd use my 460. One shot and the pin would be splinters. Wonder how it would work on a bowling ball?

    Everything that happens is either endurable or not. If it’s endurable, then endure it. Stop complaining. If it’s unendurable . . . then stop complaining. Your destruction will mean its end as well.

    I don't have a bowling ball to shoot. I know one thing, it would not be point blank. Kind of reminds me of the time up at the club where one of the deranged members shot a bowling out of an oxygen cylinder. Cut the valve end off, drilled a hole at the bottom, loaded in the gunpowder, stuffed in some newspaper and the ball and lit the fuse. The ball went out of sight and the tank buried itself about 2 feet in the dirt. Don't know where the ball went to, just glad it didn't come down on my head. People do insane things.

    Nice set of .41s. My 10mm handguns work well on bowling pins.

    I shot bowling pins with a 6" Mod 57 and used 8.5unique/195 csw and it took the pins off the table with authority.
