The good stuff always takes more work and more diligence. If getting the best is too much trouble for you then don't bother. Leaves more for those who appreciate excellence.

My objection to DA/SA handguns is you have to learn 2 quite different trigger pulls. If you actually learn them, well then you may do well. The vast majority of people I've seen shooting DA/SA...

Full Moon clips are the fastest re-load by a wide margin. They are best with the 45 ACP cartridge loaded with FMJ Ball. The larger chamber mouths and stubby cartridges make for the fastest reload...

No one I know, but then I'm an old fart and all my friends are old too. We tend to like handgun calibers that start with a "4". (smile)

Scott,

You are getting a false impression of the cartridge (10mm) by just looking at Federal. They loaded the FBI ammo at 40 S&W performance levels and have never changed it. As already stated the...
