    Unlike the standard .410 shotguns most of the .410 revolvers and break action pistols are bored to handle a .45 bullet and can be used with the .45 Colt cartridge which is much the same diameter as the .410 shotshell. I believe a .41 revolver cartridge would be a very loose fit and the cases might burst.
    A friend had a .45/70 trapdoor Springfield rifle that he fired .410 shotshells in.
    The British brass cased .410 based on the .303 British rifle casing might be much closer to handling a .41 cartridge safely.

    The wife of a friend worked as an armed security guard and carried a .41 Magnum S&W revolver. She used the optional lightly loaded .41 target cartridges that were also marketed with these revolvers. These were probably very close to the old .41 Colt Long.

    Of course these obviously aren't to scale, but it looks tidier to see all the dimensions side-by-side.

    I've "done that which is evil" and experimented with interchanging similar cartridges in the past and without serious mishap, however that practice should rightfully come under the heading of "don't do this at home, kiddies."

    I even happen to have guns chambered for each of the cartridges below.


    .41 Long Colt really wouldn't work at all in a standard .410 chamber, being too undersized. Even the cartridge rim of the .41 Long Colt is small enough to be swallowed by the .410 chamber.

    The .41 Long Colt would not work properly in the .41 Magnum revolver either. The old Remington light .41 Magnum load (now discontinued) would deliver terminal ballistics somewhat similar to the .41 Long Colt.

    When I was a kid, some cousins and I used to shoot .410 2 1/2-inch shells in the .45-70 "Trapdoor" Springfield.

    I was present when an older cousin fired some .45 Colt cartridges through a trap door (or was it a Remington Rolling Block he had in .45-70). This would have been in about 1970 and memory is fuzzy. Seems like a pocket knife made an expedient extractor on this occasion.

    Does anyone here store their watches and firearms together?

    My big gun safe would be a lot harder to steal than the smaller safe in which I have been storing my watches.

    I added a Gold Cup to my stable of 1911s. This one was made in 69. It's displayed with my 63 Accutron Astronaut here.

    I have two modern rifles from LaRue Tactical. Also, have two suppressors (one for each rifle). When it comes to pistols, I'm a glock guy. However, my glock's are from Agency Arms; which people over here in the States call Gucci glocks. My father was in the Air Force and my Grandfather was in the 17th Airborne in WWII. So, I grow up shooting a lot.

    Alright, so the first one is my edc (everyday carry) Agency two-tone G19 with the bonesaw cut. The next one is the Gucci of Gucci glocks from Agency Arms. It’s a Fatal 15 (meaning they only make 15 of that model) G34. 64E8060C-258F-44D6-8BBA-9C49BC85EDEB.jpeg 99FE43F3-7A8E-4A0A-A301-8A7F2A03A018.jpeg 2AF2446F-B10D-47B3-B194-12764B5BAF4A.jpeg D7B9982B-B652-45E7-9799-ADDAA8F67F0E.jpeg 496FCD66-CC1F-4BE6-A2A5-70DC1FCCCF4A.jpeg 5912FF18-6154-46DA-9D5E-9EA1157AA8CF.jpeg 46185F51-74BE-44D1-8B84-E0CDEE01E38E.jpeg

    Nice Glocks posted through the years I have owned some custom Glocks. Lately I do not do very much to Glocks. This G33 works well for my needs. I swapped out the sights. Installed a laser max guide rod. Added the – connector polished the trigger group and installed a Glock smooth trigger face. Other than the guide rod and sights it’s pretty much a stock Glock. On the plus side I have an OEM Glock 40 cal. Barrel that I can swap out when I want to shoot 40’s out of the G33.

    I store my watches and firearms in the same safe. The safe I have is a beast. Plus it makes it easier for me to stash my stuff in one place.
