POTD: Off Duty Carry

Andrew sent us this nifty photo of the 9mm Smith & Wesson Shield pistol that is his off duty carry. He told us his ammunition of choice is 147 grain  Ranger-T, Winchester’s 3rd generation penetrating hollow point  (1st. gen was the infamous Black Talon).

Revolver Showdown

Jerry Miculek compares a S&W L-Frame against a Colt Python and a Ruger Speed Six. He admits it to us that he is a little biased since he has been shooting for S&W for the past 25 years. After the test firing he does a table top talk and breaks down the features [Read More…]

Beyond Your Target

Here is a good reason to know what is beyond your target. Also a good idea to choose a better backstop. A tree does not make for a good backstop if you constantly use it. It looks like they have been using that large metal plate as a target stand and it was up [Read More…]

An Interesting S&W Factory Error

This S&W Bodyguard 380 was sent to a home-based FFL. Manufactured last month, it was sent from the factory with no slide serrations! Members of the Smith&Wesson Forum suggested that this is no problem as long as he sells it to a customer with a pair of pliers!

AR-15 Graduation Cake

Little Cakes on the Prairie, Negley, Ohio made this AR-15/NRA themed graduation cake. I don’t know who Alan is, but he sure is a lucky guy.   It looks like the cake was modeled on a S&W M&P15-22 Many thanks to Andre for the tip.

S&W Optics Ready Model 41 Pistol

The .22 Model 41 target pistol is over 50 years old but is still going strong. The S&W Performance Center has developed a new optics ready version of the M41. The MSRP is $1,579. It is not cheap but this is a high-end target pistol, not a backyard plinker.
