    My wife is gonna keep my snubby. Yesterday was the first time she shot it and she instantly fell in love with it. Her tiny little M&P Bodyguard in .38sp was too painful for her to shoot because it was so light. I even tried different grips and really light loads for her and she was never happy with it. Just way too snappy and her hands were getting beat up. I had her try her .38s in my magnum and her face lit up with a huge grin.

    Good. Yeah, a hand gun has to have a certain amount of heft to it or it's just not fun to shoot for any length of time. I'm not a fan of polymer framed pistols, never have been. The Dan Wesson .357 shot like a Ruger Singe Six .22 because of the frame heft and extra barrel weight and balance.

    Finally arrived and feels great! Not too happy that I received one with a matte black finish when the product images showed a version that has a glossy appearance, but I can live with it. Not like you can return a firearm anyway

    My only revolver is an old .22 I inherited when my grandpa died. It's such a piece of junk I'm a little scared to shoot it, but I still pop a rabbit with it once in a while. It doesn't bruise my hand, though, so that's nice. ha ha ha

    Years ago when I use to be a member with the local pistol club my favorite match shoot, room cleaning and tactical swat training with the local police was with this humble m9.

    Smooth balanced and easy to use.

    Nope. I've never heard of a dealer that will accept returns on firearms or ammunition. I'm not sure of the reasoning behind it, but every brick&mortar and online retailer that I'm familiar with have big notices that all gun sales are final.

    If something is wrong with the gun and covered under warranty you can send it in to the manufacturer to get it worked on, but that's it.

    My grandfather taught me to shoot when I was a young lad and one of the first guns I used was a .22 revolver. Fun little gun and you can't beat the prices of .22lr ammo. Definitely easier on the hands haha My mom has really bad rheumatoid arthritis and can't really handle much shock to her fingers and wrists but .22 is tame enough for her to enjoy.

    That's a handsome Beretta. I'm partial to 1911 because I like the style a bit more and I prefer .45acp over 9mm, but I'd still be happy with an M9 :)

    Haven’t been able to get much range time due to an old neck and shoulder injury flaring up for the past few weeks, but you gotta love fireballs!

    This was a cool little screenshot of a video from my last outing.

    Edit: Wanted to add that this photo is a great example of why you don't put your fingers anywhere near the cylinder gap.

    Not a wheel gun but still wanted to share.

    Wanted to give the 1911s a try without spending a small fortune so I picked up an inexpensive ATI FX9, 4.25" barrel. After running about 600rnds through it so far I can honestly say I've never had an autoloading pistol with such an amazing trigger.

    1911.jpg

    I DID get some disapproving looks from my father- and brother-in-laws, both of whom served in the military, over the fact that I decided to go with 9mm flavor over the .45ACP but I wanted something that was cheap to shoot and comfortable enough for my wife to enjoy. I can get buckets of ammo for super cheap and the small cartridge is very pleasant to shoot in such a large steel frame pistol. Easily one of my favorites despite being a budget option.
