Never implied that you were. You had made a statement that you didn't know of anyone who want a bullet to travel slower.

I was merely providing some information for the casual reader who might not have known an application for a slower moving round.

Well just when I decide to add a Glock to the safe I'm reminded why I haven't. . . .

Muzzle Velocity IS commonly (except in this case) known as the speed in which the projectile exiting the muzzle of a firearm is traveling. It is used to measure the energy, in conjunction with mass (eventually effectiveness) that a cartridge loading produces out of a given firearm.

Now,Muzzle Rise (or flip, climb, etc.) is commonly solved and reduced by the PORTING of a barrel, slide, etc. which reduces recoil of the firearm by re-directing the hot gasses (i.e. pressure) in the firearm (caused by the explosion that just occurred in your hand) in an opposite direction to the force of the recoil, thus negating the unwanted rising of the muzzle of the weapon.

That would allow you to shoot that beast of a .40 S&W much "More Manageable"



I love bold.

Default My main carry gun

My Second Gen 19 w/ Robar grip reduction/med stippling. Otherwise 100% stock. She's an ugly duckling but 15k+ rounds later still working. She did go back to Glock recently through my PD for a free tune-up ie; springs, ejector and sights.
