    Pretty much the same boat. For routine/ low-risk, the Shield 2.0. As a belt gun, the 2.0 4" Compact.

    Neither of mine have ever choked, though they showed an early preference for different ammo...

    Since they're switching calibers, and therefore loads, any word on what their 9mm load will be? In years past, when they issued P228's, they were issuing 115 grain +P+ Remington.

    Found a used example for $400. The previous owner was a devotee of older UMC ammo, to judge from the caked on gunk under the extractor, and the accompanying debris in the magazines.

    So far, I'm...

  9. A Take of two Smith .45's, and a Case of Dumbass

    It takes time to form opinions, and more to change them.

    I recently decided that my shooting performance using Mod Weaver was steadily degrading, and so I finally took the advice of Doug Tollen.

    I can tell you these things:

    I've never seen a bad run of GS ammo from an accuracy standpoint.

    In my hillbilly water testing, I had a round of 124 +P expand to roughly .70 through denim,...

    It appears bonefrog deleted my account, as it no longer appears.

    If I can't get quality 9mm ammo, I can always revert to .45.

    But I do have local sources for Black Belt and Crit Duty.

    I have several boxes of +P Black Belt in 9mm, and the build quality is superb. Both the case mouths and primer pockets are sealed.

  14. 17.5 Review

    I spend a lot of time anguishing over correct night sights, and wanting a U-notch for the new blaster.

    Finally saying, "The hell with it," I bought a set of Truglo Tritium Pros. I confess I wasn't...

  16. Gen 5: What two-dot sights to get?

    I'm having a really hard time making up my mind on this:

    I've previously had stellar results with Ameriglo I-Dots with the yellow front with a Gen 4 17.

    My ex-wife had an SR9c. We couldn't make it jam.

    But I think, if you factored in the ease of use, and the presence of the striker extension's use as a Gadget, she might be well served with a PPS....

    Took my GF's new 2.0 4" out for a spin. My results were:

    1. The lack of muzzle rise/ felt recoil was substantial. It helped greatly in teaching her.
    2. The pistol loved 124 grain +P. It strung...

    Just this weekend, I ended up talking to a couple of USBP agents.

    Their take was that the 320 in 9mm was their new sidearm. No word on ammo, though.

    Just another rumor point, as opposed to data...
  22. S/N ranges?

    Both of mine are in the BGF range (laugh all you want). So far, no problems at all, that weren't caused by the loose nut behind the trigger.

    Thanks for posting this.

    I have a 19.5 with the older Meprolights, and 147 HST is printing a bit high compared to other 147 grain loads.

    It is however, spot on with everything else.
