    When I've carried a revolver it's been a S&W 386 Night Guard in an old Maxpedition Good-to-Go bag. Since the frame split on the 325 PD I bought I'm having reservations about the 386, particularly...

    A year or so after my first foray into Glocks the G36 was introduced. I bought one for my wife to try but she preferred her Commander so I shot it for a while. Neither of us had any of the "reported"...

    Looking at DB's picture of a loaded M-27 cylinder gives one a warm and comfortable feeling. It ilistrates that things are right, proper, in their place, and as they should be. (smile)

    Apparently there is no such thing available and you have to modify something else or alter an off brand. Curious gap in available products.

    O3RN,

    Sounds like a good time. I just hope your picture doesn't indicate you were drinking at the range. That violates a couple safety rules and years of common sense.

    I have long thought the 3.5" and 5" barrels were ideal for the N-frame S&W. Naturally S&W has discontinued both as regular production barrel lengths. How cool would that fix sighted, 8-shot, 2" model...

    Rex, what I was trying to say (and did so badly) was that Ruger built a superior K-frame in the Security/Serivce- Sixes.

    Then they screwed it all up with the blocky, ugly, and heavy GP-100, an...

    Yes. We had a number of cracked forcing cones. About the time I retired (late '87) they bought some 586s as the old timers in white shirts still thought new hires should start on revolvers.

    This is a fairly new offering from Federal and since I'm a fan of JMB's original design parameters for the 45 ACP (200g @ 900 fps) I bought some to try. First two outings with it and the function,...

    Velocity does not correlate directly with the ability to stop. Adequate penetration and rapid blood loss are the primary factors. And...there is no magic bullet!

    2.5 months? You must have gotten one of the "Special Express" order forms. That has to be close to a record.

    Over on the S&W Forum there are folks who've waited for a year or more.

    Square (OK, rectangular) black sights you can see on a J-frame are pretty remarkable to me. Loose the IL and I would have been sold on it too.

    Hope you like it on the range,

    Should You Oil Bore/Chamber for EDC Pistol?

    No. In 50+ years of handgun shooting I have never oiled the bore or chambers of any gun I've owned.
