    .44 Mag Tracker ($350) last one I promise

    I'd of jumped on that if still in the buying mode. Have a 2.5" Ti Tracker in .41 Magnum. I chronoed some 250 gr grizzly loads at 1,150 fps and some underwood 230gr SWC at a little over 1,200 fps (1,272 from 2.5" Charter Arms). The Ti Tracker is about 21 oz and the above loads are doable, but...

    New EDC Kahr PM45 DLC finish

    CW40 lightly modified for pocket carry. Under recoil, slide stop would randomly engage (my thumb was the culprit) - so, I reduced the profile - problem solved. Magazine was dropping, also under recoil - catch was a bit proud, so it was reduced. Added laser for night use if needed. Skintight...

    New EDC Kahr PM45 DLC finish

    My favorite is the CW45. I acquired a CM45 because I like the CW45 so much. I shot this target at 25 yds rested over a back pack while getting a rifle on paper. Center diamond 5 shots connected by the light black lines. . . Mine functions flawlessly with factory hardball. It can be a bit...

    Zeroing Revolvers for All the Different Loads

    You'll have to re zero for each load - you may get lucky and find a couple that hit the same POI or close to it. Here's a target I shot with my S&W M69 - 4 1/4" L Frame 44 mag. Only shot two of each load to reduce target clutter and minimize recoil induced fatigue. 25 yds rested - big center...

    Range Report 2.75 inch S&W m69 44 magnum

    I was asked about the recoil of my 4 1/4" gun when I first got it in 2014. I took a 4" 329 Ti/Sc, a 4" 629 Mtn Gun, and the 4" M69" to the range. Firing 240gr Federal Factory JHPs (chronoed almost 1,400 fps from a 7 1/2" SBH) my comment at the time was the 329 is "snappier", the 629 Mtn Gun...

    Range Report 2.75 inch S&W m69 44 magnum

    I have both barrel lengths of the M69. I find the recoil to be less with the 2.75" gun (probably due to reduced muzzle velocity of 50-100 fps. Have shot both a bunch with heavier loads. Some actual chrono data that might be of interest. . Buffalo Bore, 305 LBT LFN HC rated 1,325 fps...

    They Know Me Better Than I Know Me.

    I lived in a small southern Calif desert town growing up. In about 1965, I bought a K22 ($87 IIRC – summer job money) in a town 20 mi from ours. Still living at home but never told my parents. Yrs later Dad told me the chief of police had notified him of my purchase- he told the Chief “no...

    They Know Me Better Than I Know Me.

    IMHO you can't go wrong with a K22. Some of my most enjoyable times have been spent with the 6" and it shorter sibling the 4". Everyone otta have one.

    Freedom Arms Fan Boy?

    Notes only say crimped in crimp groove (XTP Mag only has a single crimp groove). I'll go look and see if I have any still loaded and mik the OAL.

    The 300gr XTP was .55 inch - the clover leaf in the center. The lower 1.75" group was with an LBT cast gas check.

    Freedom Arms Fan Boy?

    Too lazy to go look, but here is a target that shows various loads using both .454 cyl and .45 Colt cyl. . . This was shot with an early field grade gun that was sent back to FA for retrofit of both 45 colt cyl and replaceable firing pin.

    Here are two Model 97s in 45 colt. A 4 1/4" Oct bbl and a 3 1/2" round butt. . . Here's the 4.25" oct bbl M93 .45 Colt -- for some reason I can't edit out the top picture which is a 5.5" M97 22/22mag . . M97 3.5" Round Butt 45 colt .

    Took a Berkeley girl shooting today!

    Outstanding. It does my heart good to see the "change of heart" once they find how enjoyable shooting can be. Gotta love the G44 -- it's even more fun suppressed. . . Paul

    .460 Rowland and .960 Rowland.

    That's the reason I went with the 460 (to keep from high pressure rounds finding their way into my Les Baer). I have a 1911 and son has an H&K USP. Easy to shoot with decent power (less recoil than my Kahr CM45). . . The 1911 is "softer" shooting v the H&K (considerably heavier). . The H&K...

    The Combat .22 Semi-Auto

    It works flawlessly with CCI Blazers (I have a case from yrs back). After finding that out, I haven't tried anything else.
