I do not know of anyone named Lee Jurras being connected to S&W.

Lee Jurras was a noted handgunner and the owner of Super Vel Ammunition that really brought hollow points and high speed ammunition to handguns.  He was worldwide distributor for Auto Mag for two years and was an accomplished handgun hunter.  Harry Sanford gave him an Auto Mag chambered in 357 AMP and Lee took a documented 119 head of game on four continents with it not counting the hundreds and maybe over a thousand jack rabbits.

In 1979 he was awarded the Outstanding American Handgunner Award.

He and Kent Lomont mentioned above were from your state of Indiana.

He was from Shelbyville, 20 miles away. I THOUGHT he went to S&W after his Super Vel days.

Lee Jurras died in April.  Here is an article written by John Taffen.

Some great pictures of the greats of handgunning after the article.  Lee was friends with them all.

Digging up this older, but popular thread.

The Firearm Blog had a posting about the new Automag and it's magazines today.

Just thought some might be interested.

That comes right off the Auto Mag website and was emailed to all of us that have AMP's on order.

They have shipped quite a few guns to those who do not want to wait for the improvements that are being tested right now.  All those that have shot their AMP's are very satisfied with them and say the accuracy, workmanship, and finish is outstanding.

I am a collector and I have a lot of AMP's already and decided to wait for the all the improvements before I take delivery.  Patrick, the owner, must have a lot more patience than I would have.
