It looks like a pellet gun to me.

It has slightly smaller harder grips (not that grips aren't easy to replace.....but I haven't) than the PD, so maybe that's part of it, but I honestly don't detect a huge difference in the recoil of the two, both are nasty even though the mass of the 640 is much greater. The 640 is just too much of a pantload for pocket carry IMHO due to the weight, whereas the 340 is a very comfortable gun to carry.
I had an old SIA .38spl, and even with .38+P+ it was no where NEAR as bad as the 340PD with low power 158gr SWC .38s in it. That thing was just way too slappy.

There's an old guy over on the S&W forum who is pretty well respected and thought-of. He claims to have shot a 340PD around 20,000 times with 357s, full loads, not reduced or "light" ones. He was trying to wear it out, but says it's still going strong. Hard to believe. It might not wear out the gun (although I would think so, the thing doesn't seem as rugged as a steel gun), but it would sure as hell wear out the shooter!!!

What do you do for a shotgun in a tactical 22 three gun match??? 20g?

I suppose that you are referring to it's being a long recoil operated pistol, right?

That's a Frommerstop. The interesting and odd thing about it is that you use each removed part as the tool to remove the next part.

The Nambu was SUCH a reliable pistol, just TRY to keep it from going off

Wasn't the 1911 originally designed like that? Starting with a .45 cartridge to get the grip screws out?

Thee are some YouTube videos with folks demonstrating the delay between ignition and departure. Not very accurate either.

They were a product of the "space" mentality of the '60's.

If you were to buy a Schofield.

Would it be an absolute travesty to get one in .38spl instead of .45lc?
