I "stumbled" upon Mr. Jurras' website . Some of our forum members have already discovered it. To my amazement-Mr. Jurras has e mailed me personally and I had the opportunity to share my AM photos with him and my thoughts on the piece. It is a true honor for me and I am in awe of the amazing shots he has made using an AM for handgun hunting. A modest man for all he has contributed to the development of the handgun and the sport of handgun hunting.

I would rather die on my feet than continue to live on my knees.--

At one time he posted on Since he has his own site now, I suppose there would be more contact there. I still have a few Super Vel brass laying around to remind me of the "old days" when speed was king.

I believe I read a book on handgun hunting by him about a year or so ago. It was good reading and he had nothing but praise for the automag, mainly the .357 automag but I believe he also used the 44 automag. It did have a couple of pics of some shots he made I think one was off hand at 227 yards or so on an antelop or some thing like that. Really amazing and good reading.

I've been on his site a while now and had a chance to discuss a few items. As you say it's an honor to share thoughts with him, and thanks to the internet, we have these rare opportunities never before available. I've also had the pleasure of sharing some memories and thoughts with Austin Behlert on the Gunsmith Forum. His custom shop had worked on a .45 I once used for IPSC. His son used to shoot at the same range I frequented in Middletown, N.J.

I'll keep my guns, my money and my freedom, you can have the change!

After reading a review in a gun rag about Super-Vel ammo in the early 70's I searched all over for a box of 38 special. Couldn't lay my hand on a box. I was told it would disappear as soon as it arrived. Back then the majority of police were armed with 38 special S&W model 10 and 15's and every cop in sight was buying it up.

Didn't take long after the sucess of Super-Vel for competitors to jump on the band wagon of high velocity ammo calling +P.
