S&W Shield

+1 For Shield
Girlfriend bought the 9mm and has been shooting 50-100 rounds every sunday for 16 weeks. The thing shoots good and we run everything thru it. Has only jammed 2 times and that was on our reloads. The jams also may be due to the fact we seldom clean it, we just keep the slide oiled.

Wow Badge, SSUUUWWWEEEeeettttt. That is one nice looking Pistol. Never seen one of those before. That Barrel length looks a lot like my Model 19 and Model 66s. Is that 2.5" Barrel?

What kind of Ammo can you put in it per your Police Department? .357 or +P 38 Special? Not all will let you put .357 in, that's why I asked.

I use to alternate between 4" and 2.5" and 2" barrels all the time when in LE. Seems like a strange requirement. The 4 and 2.5 where S&W. The 2" Colt.

Bring pictures, I want to see that target.

2.5 inch barrel. The three speedloaders I ordered came in today. The holster hasn't arrived yet. I put .38 +P in all my .357 wheelguns. I can carry the full monte if I want to...the +P has more than enough stopping power and I don't get the 6ft flame out of the muzzle.

Out of curiosity have you tried the stepped down Magnums? A bit more zip than a +P but not the Shock and Awe of the full powered rounds.

CorBon DPX and Remington Gold Dot are two I'm aware of.

I don't know if they are really worth it over a good .38 +P though as good hits are, as you well know, what really matter.

Interestingly- for me- I've been playing with the idea of getting my CCW again. (I dropped it cause I only carried on about one bike trip) which gets me thinking about a CCW gun. The only moderately appropriate regular CCW pistol I have is a Glock 19-- and I'm not a huge fan of the striker fired system. (for me) Really thinking a 3" SP101 makes a bunch of sense.

Why not carry that Wiley Clapp revolver you've got....? I think you could find a holster that would work.

A little big and heavy for me to CCW with regularly. Mighty fine hiking/home gun.

Just spoke to the Evidence Custodian of a NM Sheriff's department. Still waiting to get my stolen 3" Speed Six back. Seems like the guy is probably out thieving again by now. (the woman was very courteous and professional) I'm just ready to get my gun back.

Just got my MVP 308. Just like the 223, it looks great, no imperfections and good finish. That's as much as I can say for now, can't wait to try it!
Have a Nikon BuckMaster 3-9x40 and some Burris rings on the way, this is going to be my deer rifle!!

I don't know what kind of Ammo, you prefer, but take a close look at Buffalo Bore.

On 2.5 inch barrel, I go the higher grains 180 gr, thus letting more powder burn before the bullet leave the barrel. Then only a 4 foot flash.
1400 fps 783 ft. lbs. (scroll down 3 inch barrel 1302 fps) => https://www.buffalobore.com/index.ph...t_detail&p=100

On my 4 inch .357, I prefer the 125 grain. 1,700 fps and 802 ft. lbs. at top of page, but per 4 inch barrel chart down below 1603 ft./Sec. https://www.buffalobore.com/index.ph...t_detail&p=103 See Video below on 125 grain BB, 4 inch barrel.




Maximum specs on 38 Super +P is 115 Grain. 1450 fps and 537 ft lbs.
If you want the larger grain, go to 147 grain or 124 grain which would probably be better for a 2.5' barrel, you can look up the specs here => 147 grain => https://www.buffalobore.com/index.ph...t_detail&p=229 124 grain => https://www.buffalobore.com/index.ph...t_detail&p=227

This Video belwo, might help you understand what punch Buffalo Bores have on .357 round vs a .38 Special Round.


Only thing I use for Concealed Carry in all my firearms is BB. Love the specs on their +P+ 9mm and does that Ammo perform.
