I think as long as you don't hang a stock on it, you're good. Just turn it sideways for better accuracy.

Love the smooth cylinder with the heavy barrel though.
I'm hoping it sells like crazy! Then maybe the shells will become readily available and I can afford to shoot my 28 gauge shotty

My LCP is an excellent carry gun but the LC9 looks like it might fill the gap in concealable/reliable/cheap carry pistols in 9mm. Any thoughts?
Yeah, I've been thinking about picking one up for the same reason. My smallest auto right now is a cheap Sigma .40 so the LC9 should be quite a bit smaller, hopefully. Hard to say til you have one in your hand though.

I don't wanna ruin your day but 28 ga has been around since before I was a kid 50 some years ago . never was popular. Like the .41 mag. A good gun that never was never accepted by the gun writers and shooting community as having a real purpose because it is only slightly more than the .357 mag and considerably less powerful than the .44 mag.

He's hoping people will buy it so the price of 28 gauge drops so he can afford to fees his shotgun.

Exactly. Shotguns need some more divesity again like the 16Ga also. Now any new innovation is longer shells.

This is kinda cool... It's too bad I already had a Tracker 22 and the cylinder started binding up within 7 shots. What a piece of shit!

Check the cylinder gap. It may need shimming. I had an old Colt that would bind there when it got hot.

I bought it at a gun show and returned it that day. Guy gave me my money back and I never regretted it! I like my 22/45 more than that thing anyway

It was a good lesson and I basically got off for the price of gas doing all the running around. It's also made me decide to never ever buy another Taurus, even if they have made a .55 caliber revolver that you could shoot sporting clays with that looks super cool

Taurii do that.

My m44 bind at 30 shots.

Gap was smaller than the gp100 .035 or something like that.

Dremmel came out.

No more

Never had that experience with Taurus. BTW, my bud tells me you can't punch out that GP100 to .357. I think I'll ask him if he can convert a 686 to .41 magnum. Always wanted one of those....

Imagine if you had a Smith doing that to you, or worse, lock on you.

Then you would never buy a Smith back?

Or a 1911 would be too tight from factory and needs a little more work, like say ... most of the high end 1911.

You are falling into that
