Thanks. That's interesting the 1970 model wasn't reliable at first but became reliable. I thought break-in claims were a manufacturer's excuse for less than good workmanship. How many rounds did it...

I guess you had to use .38+P. The M-28 is stout and can easily handle full-house .357 loads.

Picture not copied for sake of brevity.

It is good men/women were grandfathered in. If I was used to carrying a 1911 in .45 or another metal gun in .40, I'd dislike having to switch.

Except for European ball ammo, the .32 does not penetrate sufficiently. If the wound tracks look similiar, they're not long enough with the .32 unless Euro ammo is used.

I read about a truck driver who couldn't recall how he got to the state he wound up in.

Did they take Ambien off the market?

Ditto here with 'smith messing up finish on the slide. When I pointed it out he said "it's painted". The factory finish is something like duracoat or cerakote.

Those are good choices for three.

For me a fourth would be something less practical that really appeals to me. I'll take a Tokarev in 7.62x25.

I've acquired the impression a 9mm out of a polymer gun is OK in terms of recoil, but a .40 out of a polymer gun is a bit much. Is that the case for many people out there?

If I'm not mistaken, the Brits are anti-gun even by European standards. In the past a pistol team had to train outside the country for competition. I don't know if it is still like that.
