I collect S&W revolvers. I shoot some of them for both idle pleasure and self defense.

Frankly, I find the modern examples to be rather shoddy in workmanship compared to the older (pinned...

Star is now sadly out of business (bankrupt in 2005 or so when financial crunch hit). Any spare parts are going to come from the 'junkyard', so to speak. There are firms dealing in out of...

One would think the 'feminists' would be all over this event. Talk about empowering a women and defying a stereotype!

We'll see, I suppose.

How in the blazes does any honest person get stuck as a straw man purchaser?

Very Much Appreciated

I have a pair of XL 650s. I will be incorporating some of your ideas in the future. Thank you very much.

Whatever one may feel about carrying in church (I'm in favor if anyone cares), many states have laws either forbidding the practice, or requiring the governing body of the congregation to authorize...

Cocked and Locked

"Safer" in what context? "Safe" against discharge? Not really, unless you have the kind of life where, while holstered, unknown forces will wipe the manual safety to the 'off' position, then...

The old adage about 'placement is everything'...

The old adage about 'placement is everything' certainly applies to most any of the .32 caliber cartridges. On the other hand, the S&W revolver in .32 S&W Long is a very accurate and mild (recoil)...

You are correct

As you say, pre-numbered Smiths were almost entirely 5 screw. Not completely.

According to the Standard Catalog of Smith & Wesson, 3rd Edition, Supica and Nahas, 2006: The top (5th) sideplate...

I have a H&K USPc in .40 S&W. I shoot primarily 165 grain Winchester Ranger HP ammo in it for serious use, a 180 grain reload for practice and such.

The recoil is noticed and certainly messes...

The biggest problem with your post is readability.

StalkingBear, your post is NOT too long, it is arranged so everything is jammed together. Makes it hard to read and digest.

You have some very good points. Someone mentioned much of the post is...

Ever See a Four-screw Model 10 Smith & Wesson?

Forever, I thought Smith & Wesson dropped the trigger guard screw when they initiated Model numbers instead - or along with - names.

That is not correct. I found this darling last week and...

Yes. I concur considering your latest photo and comparison. I was keying in on the muzzle standing proud of the slide.

Manta, The full photo is oddly clearer. The 'complete' photograph makes the arm appear to be a Beretta full size; something on the order of a 92 or perhaps even an old Brigadier?

It is not an...

Best Starting Point?

My suggestion is for NRA 2700 Bullseye.

It is relatively boring; one just stands there and fires 270 rounds at a round black target on a white background. No one runs, vaults a fence,...

And consider; it is simpler to adjust (whack!) sights to zero than to remember how far right or left with 'this' pistol.

I have a similar rifle (700 VLS in .308 Win). It is also restocked with an EBP (evil black plastic) stock. I did not replace the trigger, but committed the politically incorrect crime of adjusting...

Crimp can vary, can be deceptive.

Case neck tension holds the bullet in place.

At least that's the way it is supposed to work. Inside diameter of case neck is a couple thousands of an inch smaller than bullet diameter; jam*...

A Short Note on Over All Length (OAL)

Over All Length of any cartridge is not arbitrarily important, yet IS important all at once. But for different reasons. One will not find OAL listed in either the Mosaic Law or the U. S....

No fixed limit.

Seems to be a long time limit on quality firearms.

I did buy a Rohm "Buffalo Scout" in the late 1960s. It was a knock off of the Colt .22 long rifle single action "Scout" revolver. It shot...

Since the latest transfer of ownership of the Smith & Wesson company - some thirty years ago unless I've missed the latest one - the quality has dropped.

I have a modest collection of Smith &...

Just out of curiosity, is this warning about the 115 grain bullet about 9x19 ammunition in general, or specifically regard to the Nano?

I've never heard of such a warning, nor can I imagine a...

More to analysis target than meets the eye.

First Point: One can tell the difference between needing a sight adjustment and an error in shooting per the analysis target. If the shot holes are all neatly together and the grouping is fairly...
