Re: Slide Racking Effort on Shield 2.0 9mm vs M&P Compact with 4.0" Barrel

How does the slide-racking effort of the S&W M&P Shield M2.0 in 9mm compare with that of the M&P 2.0 9mm Compact with 4.0" barrel? Thanks for any input, Crash My brother, recovering from multiple myeloma and still doing chemo, carries the M&P9 M2.0 Shield and my 88 year old father carries the M&P9 ...

Re: Slide Racking Effort on Shield 2.0 9mm vs M&P Compact with 4.0" Barrel

If you have issues on those 2 9's, see if they have the EZ in 9mm or in 380. Both are great pistols and the 380 is sweet Also look at the Glock 48. just get the S15 mags. the 48 is a bit easy than the shield. https://imgur.com/VQXpM5U https://imgur.com/RFrmP4z bobby, Before I forget (which I obviou...

Walther CCP M2

Anybody have any recent experience with the Walther CCP M2? I had the first model and after I took it back to the dealer the 2nd time because I couldn't reassemble it, he refunded my money and sent the gun back to Walther. By the way, the dealer was a certified armorer and couldn't get it reassemble...

Re: Shield vs. Shield EZ 2.0 in 9mm

My wife currently has a Shield 9mm and has often commented about how hard it is to rack the slide, and some concerns about the trigger pull. Otherwise, she really likes the size, how it fits in her hand, etc. My understanding is the Shield EZ or 2.0 addresses both of these concerns, so I'm consider...

Re: .44 Magnum Cowboy Action Load for Self-Defense in a Rifle

I say, if you’re worried about recoil, etc., get some .44 Special self-defense loads with bullets that were designed for the role. Remember that your .44 magnum can also shoot .44 special. The Annoyed Man, My rifle is a Browning M92 and it won't load 44 Specials very well. Some it will, but most it...

I wonder how the semiwadcutter (SWC) load would feed through your rifle.
threoh8,

Can't say for sure. All I've fired through it were Remington 240 gr semi-jacketed soft points and Ultramax round-nosed lead Cowboy Action loads. They both fed fine.

Re: .44 Magnum Cowboy Action Load for Self-Defense in a Rifle

Rifle sounds like a beauty! Got any pics?? your cowboy action loads should be fine... remember in a 44mag you'll generate a lot more velocity in that rifle barrel than a handgun, which is probably why you hated the 240gr stuff! Even is if it generated no extra velocity, a 200gr @ 975 still beats al...

Annoyed Man, "Very interesting. That’s the first time I’ve heard of a magnum that won’t also cycle specials.

.44 Magnum Cowboy Action Load for Self-Defense in a Rifle

I've been reading about HSM's .44 magnum Cowboy Action Load (200 gr bullet, 975 fps mv from a handgun) and wondering if they wouldn't be more than adequate for self-defense from a 20" rifle barrel. I remember shooting .45 Long Colt Cowboy Action loads at cast iron pipe "bowling pins" and as long as ...

Re: Do Springs Take a Set if the Striker is pre-cocked/the hammer cocked?

My 5 S&W magazines for my M&P9 M2.0 5inch stay loaded. The magazines cycle during practice and training. So, for the last 3 years, these magazines have been loaded and cycled. oljames3, Thanks, appreciate your input. From your and other folks' input, doesn't appear that I need to be concerned. Crash
