Re: Holsters for S&W M&P 9C

Thanks for the helpful replies.

Just for everybody's info: per Blade-Tech, the 9C will not fit in their Nano holster. It's made for the Shield and, of course, the 9C is too long.

Holsters for S&W M&P 9C

Looking for a couple of holsters for my newly-acquired S&W M&P 9C: one for AIWB and one for OWB at 3:00. I'm leaning toward the Safariland ALS for the OWB and either the Blade Tech Nano, the Crossbreed Supertuck, or a Mika for AIWB.

Recommendations?

Thanks,

Crash

Re: Double-stack 9mm with the thinnest grip

Solved my problem today: bought a S&W M&P 9C. With the smallest backstrap it hardly feels any bigger than the Shield. Capacity is 11 +1, so it's about the perfect combination of capacity and size. As a plus, it's a lot easier to rack the slide. So, thanks for all the recommendations--really ...

Re: Double-stack 9mm with the thinnest grip

I currently have both a Glock 43 and a S&W Shield in 9mm, but I would like more capacity--say at least 12 rounds. The problem is that I have small hands/short stubby fingers and have trouble getting a good grip on a pistol with a double-column magazine. What is the thinnest-gripped, double-colu...

Re: Honest using rifle/ truck rifle ?

I don't normally carry a rifle in my truck; most of the time it's a revolver. I know that limits capacity, but I hate the thought of brass being flung around the cockpit, sum bouncin' off the windshield and bouncin' back into my face, goin' down behind my glasses, or down the front of my shirt. For ...

What Kind of Accuracy from a Mossberg 20 ga with sabot slugs?

What kind of accuracy can I expect from a Mossberg Model 500 20 gauge with 24" bbl and sabot slugs (scope set at 4X). I've never shot a deer past 120 yds and most of them were closer (some far closer).


Thanks,

Re: .357 Magnum Loaded to Lower Levels by Remington?

Remington still has a 1450 fps 125 gr .357 Magnum load , listed as UMC. It may be that they have reconsidered what constitutes a defense load vs a hunting load, and changed the label to fit the current market. threoh8, One other thought: that 125 gr JHP at 1220 fps is not much higher than some 9mm ...

MechAg94,

Wish I could remember, but that was a long time ago.

.357 Magnum Loaded to Lower Levels by Remington?

Haven't shot a .357 Magnum handgun since the mid-80s, but in those days the full power loading with a 125 grain hollow point from a 4" barrel had a nominal muzzle velocity of 1450 fps. I was just perusing the Remington website and they list the .357 mag "Ultimate Defense Full Size Handgun&...

Re: S&W K Frame OK with .38 Spl +P Loads?

Somebody will correct me if wrong, but I think SW started using model numbers on their handguns in 1957. If you have only a serial number it could predate 1957. If so, I would not risk the plus P ammo in it. Probably will not have a serious issue, maybe just cause some damage to components or timin...

Walther CCP Disassembly and Reassembly Improved?

Has Walther improved the disassembly and reassembly of the CCP? I had one a couple of years ago that was so difficult to take apart and (especially) put back together that I took it back to the dealer. He is a registered armorer and also had so much trouble putting it back together that he took the ...

Patridge Sights for a Browning Model 92

Does any company make patridge-type rear sights for a Browning Model 92 in .44 Magnum? The semi-buckhorn sights that it came with are just not precise enough for hunting deer at 100 yards (at least not with my aging eyes....). And I don't want to lower any future collector value by installing tang-m...
