How do you like it? I'm thinking a 438 or 638 might make a good CCW and still be able to shoot SA for fun.

Nice. The second one looked like a S&W M24. My Dad use to carry one. I always thought that gun was awesome.

The 36 and the Bodyguard are both spooky-accurate and since both will shoot SA, I feel really good about longer shots out to 15-20 yards. The 36 is, of course, heavier so you can shoot it as long as you want--doesn't bother me a bit to plink with it with range loads.

We've got a Hogue Bantam grip on the Airweight Bodyguard, and with .38 range ammo it's pretty mild...a bit of snap to it compared to the 36 but I can shoot a box of ammo with only a tiny bit of ache felt afterwards...and that's probably due to my arthritis.

Here's a decent article on 'em.

I've shot some of the superlight guns--usually some form of Ti or whatever--and they had some bite to 'em. But the 36 and our old Airweight are, IMHO, sweethearts at the range. Self Defense ammo does give 'em a decent smack to the hand.

Wow.

I'm haven't been much of a "revolver person" until recently. I think that 19-2 we have (technically it's SWMBO's...all the wheelguns are) is one of the sweetest handguns I've ever fired.

Weapons Safety Message 10-02

From a pilot forum.

NSFW.

The link has a pic with the result of what happens when you beat on a .50 BMG round and it goes off.

Do not try this at home.

Warnings complete.

I actually killed a deer with his S42 back in the 80's. I had lowered my rifle down and was un strapping my climber stand when a fork horn came in right under my stand. I still have the bullet. It lodged under the skin on the opposite side of entry. It was as I recall A 210 grain "Flying ashtray" round.

Hey Snipe, great to have you back. Check out my post #9932 for a pic of that SA EMP 9mm that I got a couple months back. You'd asked me to post a pic but I didn't have one at the time. It has turned out to be a sweet little gun, I'm shooting it a fair bit and really tickled with it's accuracy and reliability so far. I've also been having a lot of fun with a S&W 629PC 2 5/8" 44 Mag.

Wish mine did.... maybe its because I'm using subsonic ammo thro a sound moderator...

Using subsonic ammo is likely the problem. I've been warned by other 10/22 owners that these don't generate enough recoil to cycle the action reliably.

She sounds like a hardened criminal. Looks like you narrowly averted another massacre.

Did you try tightening the mag spring?

I don't remember the number of turns, but I remember people finding that the mags are more reliable with 1 or 2 6ths extra turn in the spring than used to be recommended.

I did see that and it is SWEET! Looks a lot like my Ultra CDP II. I am amazed at the accuracy and reliability of my CDP....everytime I take it out!

I got back into revolvers back about a few months ago and will continue to buy them as funds allow. My finding is they are close to if not as accurate as any non tricked out auto, they are very reliable, and they look and feel very cool. I also love that you get them chambered in rounds that none of the standard reliable autos are chambered for. Like .357mag and .44mag. And in my opinion and many others, the .357 round is a great round for all rond use as long as you don't try to humt moose or Elk with it.

[quote=Geoff D]Wish mine did.... maybe its because I'm using subsonic ammo thro a sound moderator...It is the ammo, a 10-22 will not reliably cycle even the heaviest 60gr subsonic ammo.....I tried it all when I had a can and even without the can it won't cycle3 subsonic ammo....I use to have to cycle it every time with the light 30gr stuff.
