    JRV - Shooting a passing (or better) score on a LE qual has no relevance to mindset or legal knowledge. I'm pretty sure nobody implied that it did. It simply demonstrates a level of technical...

    If you bought the gun new and it won't run on factory hardball, it needs to go back to the US distributor for repair, full stop. It should run flawlessly with decent ammo. My two 75Bs have about...

    <thread drift>


    That's my IDPA SSR load from when you had to make a 125 PF, and they're close to my K frame carry load (R-P 158-grain LSWCHP). Shooting them in my 681 is almost cheating, even...

    LOL! I just hope this one shoots to POA. That used to be a given. :( I'm curious to see whether it's regulated for 158s or lighter-weight bullets. I've got >2k 158-grain RNLs loaded to 840 fps...

    True, but for that price I'll live with a soulless gat. This is my first real foray into J frame land, if it works out I'll just get another. If I plug the hole and shoot it enough, does its soul...

    If anyone is looking for a police trade-in 870, Summit Gun Broker has some. They're not cheap, but prices seem reasonable for what you get. Mine should get here today or tomorrow.

    My mussel memory is that during a graduate seminar in New Brunswick, I found that boiled mussels are an acceptable substitute for boiled crawfish. :)

    Rather than look for a TDA-specific class, I'd look for a trainer who's been around long enough to be familiar with shooting TDA guns. Gray hair is an indicator. :) My perception is that a lot of...

    10mmfanboy - FWIW, the biggest difference between my carry gun and my training gun is that the training gun has a nicer trigger due to all the additional rounds. :)

    Stephanie B - In that case, stay away from handloads using Titegroup. I damned near gave myself second-degree burns doing Bill Drills with my M19 with speed reloads between them. The cylinder...

    From what I've read, it's worse in France than in Germany. That may be partly due to the immigration of mainly Arab North Africans into France from former French colonies since the 60s.

    Yeah, but since it's a report from a journalist, good chance it was a semi-auto and a low-grade IED.
  16. Dedicated Carry Gun with a "Low Round Count"

    This is a consistent theme on this forum. I subscribe to it myself because it intuitively makes sense. However, I've never seen the phrase "low round count" quantified.

    My main carry gun is a...

    Well, I've got one of these coming. The current plan is to see if it runs okay as-is; if it does, I'll rattle-can it black as a temporary measure until the budget allows sending it to Wilson's for...

    The package including sights from Wilson is $380, the full Van Comp is $840. That $460 difference would be more effectively spent on ammo and training. Some folks here have lots of disposable...
