    Cue Ron Burgundy: Well, that escalated quickly...

    Since Baltimore PD left the story hanging:

    -- Suspect Dontae Green escaped the scene.
    -- Neither officer was injured.

    Not necessarily -- depends on your intended use. Nighthawk does their work well, and for what you're getting in that package -- to include the cost of the base Colt -- it's about what you'd pay any...

    At more than MSRP I think the new Python's a non-starter. At MSRP, it's about nostalgia, or an alternative to S&W's lock. But as it stands I think it's priced and perhaps engineered in a no man's...

    Consensus seems that Colt's made a quality revolver with the Python update. They stumbled out of the gate but reportedly have fixed the production gremlins that were causing damage at the muzzle. ...

    The issue wasn't defined because it's understood a priori: Biden campaigned on increased gun control and the reporter inquired where it stands as part of the very tired "First 100 Days" gauntlet...

    My understanding is Miller's powerful medicine that cuts both ways and because of that neither side really wants to touch it much anymore.

    Basically -- and I'd love to hear from someone better...

    I don't know much about the degree to which thermal expansion can or cannot affect accuracy in handgun; I can see it as a theoretical, particularly for stainless, depending on clearances and...

    There's a misunderstanding afoot: OP is asking about a gap in the contact point between the barrel shoulder and the frame, not about barrel-cylinder gap. OP wondered if the process for setting...

    On this question I'll rely on my betters. Member Protocoll_Design over at the S&W Forum posted this:

    BLUF: Very slight gap or space top and bottom of the barrel shoulder where it meets the frame is normal and to design.

    Detail:

    Modern S&W barrels for these models have the threads on a slight...

    There's no universal answer to this because there's no universal shooter. Based on physique, shooting style and gear used/worn, 12" LOP will be perfect for some, too short for others, and...

    I understand it would be a mishandling event IF you let the hammer go while uncocking. But if the trigger was already released if you accidentally removed thumb would the hammer block re-engage,...

    On a S&W action, yes. The hammer block rides a pin attached to the rebound slide, so its travel is dictated by the trigger's travel -- the block lowers as the trigger is pulled rearward, and returns...

    We're discussing designs that have existed in similar form anywhere from decades to more than a century. Hard-used and well-proven. You can find anomalous incidents of any kind with anything, but...

    I stayed with it longer but that was overall my experience, too -- though I'll allow that dude in the video appears new to revolvers and is finding his way through "out loud", as it were.

    Remington factory extensions were available in polished blue (as well as matte and parkerized); two and three shot.

    You can look at online retailers but I haven't seen those commonly available in...

    My understanding is that Speer's 135gr Short Barrel loads in .38+P and .357 use the same bullet.

    Per those who have contacted Speer, in the 38+P load the GDSB out of a 4" barrel should perform as...

    Ah. I didn't know "cup and core" and assumed. Thank you for the correction; I'll reflect it in the earlier post.

    I'd wager there's a lot of truth to this and it's why the three biggies as well as boutiques like Buffalo Bore and Underwood still produce versions of the FBI load.

    The question of momentum is...

    True. Plenty of folks have been run over by horse and buggy, too -- still easier and more effective to do it in a Model T. ;)

    If you're talking how to achieve that pull on a Gen4 using only factory parts, my experience says you can't, for the reasons you cited. I tried mightily using every connector and NY spring Glock...
