Re: Switching to wheel guns this year

74novaman, a trio of questions since it was difficult to see what you were doing during reloads....

1. I assume you were using speedloaders and not moon clips?

2. When you dump the spent brass, are you shucking it onto the ground, or into a pouch of some kind?

3. If you’re shucking that brass onto the ground, are you permitted to walk back through the course of fire and retrieve your brass, or is brass just “a cost of doing business”?

Just picked up a nifty Kimber K6 for pocket and cross draw carry. Sweet little wheelie
Those are nice looking guns. Which version did you get?
The base model and added the Hogue G10 grips as they provide 3/8” longer grip..pinky rest.

Once you get used to the trigger it is surprising accurate, and a read blast to shoot.

357 wasnt to bad to shoot but 38+p is a pussycat
I read on their website that it has a “no stack” trigger. I take that to mean that it doesn’t stack up before the break? That reminds me of our old Kahr pistols.

Spent today dry firing and trying out a possible way to carry moon clips outside of competition: a speedloader/moonclip holder from Simply Rugged holsters.

These concealed easily under my usual attire of an untucked collared shirt, and I was able to reload quicker than with how I had been carrying a reload (speedloader in the pocket) as well.

21 rounds on hand doesn't make me feel very deficient in the "carry lots of ammo" school of thought.

74novaman, a couple of questions....

First, is that the Performance Center Model 19 K-Comp? She’s go-jiss!

Second, where did you get the moon clip carriers? I’ve got to find one that will fit an 8-round moon clip for the TRR8.

Re: Switching to wheel guns this year

I own a N-frame .44, which I like a lot, but is just too heavy for all day carry. Plus I’m afraid of setting my whiskers on fire if I ever have to use it for realz. With a 5” barrel, the fireball is pretty impressive. I also own a couple of J-frame .357s - a S&W 640, and a 340M&P. Of those two, the 340 is the only one I ever carry because it’s nice and light, and it slips into a pocket for trips to the mailbox, etc. I also have a FIST holster for it, but I rarely carry it that way because I don’t feel like I want that gun as my primary weapon.

BUT... that all changes next week when I’ll become the proud owner of a Model 327 TRR8 - a 5” 8 shot N-frame that doesn’t weigh too much to carry. I just need to buy a left-handed holster for it. I will probably still carry one of my Glocks as my EDC going forward, but it will be cool to have a full-sized .357 for when I’m out in the country, or traveling to places where standard sized magazines are illegal.

74novaman, on the range, are you shooting .357 ammo in your .357 revolvers, or primarily .38 Special?
