Did Performance Shooting, Inc show an increase in ND's when you have to finger fuck the trigger in order to remove an obstruction placed behind it?


I guess zero time would be added as long as you are popping that thing out on the draw. But then you are taking it off "safe" before you have decided to fire. If your finger is indexed along the slide as it should be, then when you decide to fire you pop that out it definitely would add time. So then what do you do when you want to put it back on "safe"? Start looking around that little piece of plastic so you can put it back before you reholster?


Stupid. If someone is not comfortable carrying a Glock the way it is, then don't. It is that simple. Carry something with an active safety or a revolver with a long heavy DA pull.

I'd rather have a beefed up folding sub-2k type gun, semi, and mag fed in 500. What a cool brush gun - carry a few mags of a dozen rounds per, folds up and goes in your pack, etc.

Of course, magazines + rimmed = hassles, etc. But if someone makes it, I'll like it

You should try one. Then, you might be surprised, you might like it.

I have a single shot H&R in fully rifled 12ga...it's not a bad gun for the price.

Plus you can stick many different center fire barrels on it to make it just about any calibre rifle.

I have a 4" XD in .40 cal. Like it very much. Accurate, and it eats everything I feed it, including the "dreaded" Winchester white box ammo, both FMJ and HP. It rides in my glove box or my tank bag, depending on if I'm trucking it or biking it. Name's not Sally, either...

My philosophy is the same as for humans; if you are going to shoot, shoot to incapacitate - i.e., no warning shots.

Besides, while a warning shot might work on a human, I doubt that a bear knows you just shot at it - all it knows is that there was a loud noise.

That said, the threat of bears is very low. You are more likely to encounter a feral dog than a bear, and bears more often tend to try to avoid humans.

I wanted a large caliber powerful handgun that was light enough to carry such that I would not be having to decide whether to leave it at home because it was so heavy.

Would I prefer a large powerful rifle if I had to shoot a dangerous animal? Sure, but I doubt I would carry that rifle unless I was hunting.

It is just a matter of advantages v. disadvantages. No gun is perfect. At this point in time the S&W 329PD is the compromise I am willing to live with in certain situations. Or it could just be an excuse to get another gun.
The only place you need to worry about brown bears or the more probable threat, a mad moose, is in Alaska (or some smaller regions of Canada). And if you are tramping around the bush, you need to carry a rifle and not a pistol. My guide gun in 45/70 is pretty damn easy to carry and I have even been tempted to make an (illegal) pistol grip for it. You could still grip the forestock really well and get off a high velocity 405 or 500 grain round to stop a charging moose or brownie. I certainly would not trust a .500 S&W or any other pistol. A revolver can get you several rounds off pretty fast, but skill with a lever action can get you about the same number much better aimed. You might get off one well aimed round, but to bring that bad boy down for a second kill shot would be pretty hard with all that adrenaline running through your brain. But if you are going to carry a pistol, then this is the only one to consider:
