Smith and Wesson’s Performance Center’s M&P40 Shield… Part 2 40 S&W self-defense and trail use handloads

The six bullets pictured above are my standards for short barrel 40 S&W handloads. The soft lead core jacketed bullets do well as components of defensive handloads, fully expanding to 0.750″ or more in ballistic gel, penetrating to 12″ to 18″. The three cast bullets on the right with a Brinell hardness of 16 will…

S&W’s Model 19 Classic Part I With the right ammo, there isn't much a 357 Mag can't do

I mostly listen to old songs, or new singers who sing old songs. I think I never recovered from the trauma of Disco, the British Invasion and an overdose of soul. One of my favorite songs is Bob Dylan’s “If Not For You” that was release around October of 1970. My wife had gone back…

Having a phone number handy for a good handyman, for help when the work gets too heavy or too oversized for one, is also a good idea. Landscaping, insect control, vehicle and equipment repair, masonry and carpentry work, metal…

Smith & Wesson’s M&P Bodyguard 38 ...ohne einen Laser

So I opened the M&P Bodyguard 38 display box and found a diminutive zippered soft case. Then I opened the diminutive zippered soft case and found a slightly more diminutive revolver. In fact, the Bodyguard is so small I could cover its entirety with one hand. The Bodyguard’s dimensions are 6.6″ long x  4.2″ high…

Smith and Wesson’s Performance Center Model 19 Carry Comp A compact revolver that is actually enjoyable to shoot...

OK, I like double action revolvers. There is always a round in the chamber inline with the barrel and point and squeeze the trigger are pretty easy operating instructions to remember even under the most stressful conditions. When well done, as is the case with this S&W Performance Center Model 19, revolvers are also aesthetically…
