    I finally got my first T/C Contender. I had been fascinated with them since the 80's. This was to good a deal to pass up. I found someone that wanted the 45LC barrel that I had gotten it with in exchange for the 22LR I wanted. Here it is dressed up and ready for its first range trip. My intent despite the "stay home" plea from the state of NH is to go out tomorrow. Some fresh air and some range time will do me good.

    I've heard these things are seriously addictive... We shall see.

    Back in the day I almost bought one in .223. I was going to scope it and use it for woodchuck hunting. Raising a family changed my plans. Good luck and happy shooting.

    I've had a contender 35 years. One of my favorites. Mine is a 45 Long Colt that also takes 3 inch .410 shells. I always get amazed looks when I take it out and break clay piegons with it.
    I can't keep anyone from breaking into my home. However, their problem will be getting out alive.
