AKDuke put some time into those pistols though. They appear to be his pride and joy, and I was just wondering how it is that those two are his (apparent) favorites.

I, personally, haven't been able to shoot a revolver as accurately as a semi-auto, but my guess is, in my case, it comes down to experience, coupled with the difference btw. single and double-action.

I just like to hear what people like about ther stuff.
The first glock 17 I shot made my trusty model 10 look like a competition target pistol.

Everybody's been shooting the plastics so long that nobody even knows what a real trigger feels like.

Ahhhhhh, my meager collection of cheap ass guns has a few butter smooth triggers amongst them.

Thanks AZbiker.

I'm working on a small pancake/slide holster (what's the difference between a pancake and a slide holster?) that will be molded a little tighter and won't have a strap - so the retention will be solely the molding.
Should be fun, and I'll apply some of the lessons learned so I'm hoping to turn out a slightly better product.

If you intend to ware the pancake at 3 O'clock, or further back it needs to pull the but in close. The other consideration is how high the weapon rides in relationship to the belt line. That is why I use a lined/stiff belt to properly support the weight of the weapon. At 4 O'clock I like a 22 degree tilt to keep shoulder movement more fluid during the draw. At 3 O'clock 20 degree tilt works well. Remember that being able to discreetly draw is also a consideration in some scenarios. Disclaimer I don't know squat and just recently stayed in a Holiday Inn Express which is the basis for my ramblings. Carry on.

My new pair

And yes, they are both unloaded even though there are mags in each of them! They look better in a pic with the mag in!

Thanks!
I've been looking at a lot of pictures of holsters on the internet, and I mocked up a paper version of what I'm building, then just kind of held the gun against my hip with my left and hand moved it around to try to find a place were it was comfortable to reach/draw.
I figure it'll either work well, and I'll learn what works well, or it won't work well, and I'll have a data point to move forward from.

Now just think if it was 1958 ,and you got your latest issue of "Guns " magazine. Your eyes catch this small ad in the back,and you send off an order.
kinda makes all your Barretts look like plinkers,doesn't it?

OMG, those black guns are scary.

That is why I personally stick with suppressed/coyote brown as I am more civil.

I really don't understand your restrictions on moderators - they make shooting more pleasurable for everyone.
