General Discussion / Re: Sp101 9mm thoughts
« on: December 27, 2019, 07:52:57 PM »
My 9mm SP101 is far from my favorite revolver to shoot. It's a nice gun, shoots great, no issues, but I enjoy 38 special /.357 magnum out of a longer barrel more. My SP101 is in front of me right now (along with my P30) loaded with Gold Dots. If the situation presents itself, I can drop the Ruger in my pocket and walk out my front door. If I take the Ruger to the range I put maybe 20 rounds through it. The same day I probably will put 100 rounds each through my Mod 28, HK and Glock. If you are looking for a self defense revolver ;D ,the SP101 isn't a bad choice and that is the reason I bought it. If you are looking for a revolver that you can also have fun at the range with, my opinion is get a 38 special (should actually be called .357 special :shake:) or a .357 magnum.

I do own a 5” 686 and do love the way it shoots. I was looking for a 3” barrel revolver for the range, self defense, and also something my wife can shoot. She held the 686 but it was way to heavy for her. She shot my glock 34 and cz P10c but she has a hard time manipulating the slide.

That’s the kind of feedback I was looking for. I didn’t know the 9mm version came blued so I’ll be on the lookout for one!

I’m thinking about picking up a 9mm revolver. I was considering getting the Ruger SP101 and was wondering if anyone here has one? If so, could you tell me the pros and cons or if there is another company/model I should look at.
Thank you ahead of time and Merry Christmas..

General Discussion / Re: Who's Shooting This Weekend?

I bet was same RO. I typically rest my rifle in the right side of the bench, but not all the time. What is safer? To me if I’m shooting my AR, left side keeps the brass ejection less risk of going into neighbor’s area.

He wasn’t concerned about the brass hitting my neighbor as opposed to how I shouldered it. I’m left handed and he wanted the rifle on the right side of the bench. That way I could shoulder it without having it crossover my body. If that makes sense.

Saw a bunch of familiar faces at the range today. Was good to see many “working out” their rifles as well as teaching some youth shooters.

Actually got scoldings from an RSO today. 😳Apparently my front foot wasn’t at the very edge of the pavement and not on the right side of my bench when I was shooting standing. Well, to my right was a youth shooter and I wanted to keep my gun with a comp away from him. To my left was a guy taking a break.  And maybe my foot was like an inch away from the edge. I mean I get they are there to keep things safe, but sheesh. Most of them are cool though.

Haha! This happened to me on Saturday.
The RSO explained to me that it would be safer when picking up and putting down the rifle if I was on the “correct side” of the bench.

What are your guy’s thoughts on Megan Kau? I know she said “don’t bring a gun to a knife fight” but I think it was taken out of context. Personally, I think it’s about escalation of force. If both parties are mutual fighting and one person is now getting beat up he/she doesn’t have a right to pull out a knife and claim self defense.
Please don’t chew my head off because I maybe totally wrong. 😂

30 yards is far, most residential properties aren't that long in total.  Maybe 30 feet.

If that prosecutor is right, it doesn't look good for the shooter.

Haha! Sorry I meant 30ft not sure why I put yards.
If that is the truth that he was outside of his property then he’s screwed.

Was that Megan Kau?  Ms."You can't bring a knife to a fist fight, or a gun to a knife fight".  Exaggeration there, but pretty much what she is quoted saying.  I heard she tried to clarify that her words were taken out of context by the media.  Imagine that. . .  ::)

Yup. That’s the one.
She did say a lot of people were getting excited about her comment so she tried to justify herself.

The prosecutor was on island 98.5 on Tuesday. She said that the way the case was presented to her was that the guy with the knife was standing outside of the guys gate on the sidewalk. The homeowner was in his doorway and shot him from there. Something doesn’t add up because I heard he was shot multiple times. I’m guessing it’s about 30yds from the door to the sidewalk by the video on the news.

Took my family to the fun side this past Saturday.

I have a streamlight protac on a shotgun and like it.
13
Ahh, got it. 

Hopefully it shoots well.  Let us know.   :thumbsup:

[resisting urge to look at my 686 closer. . .  :-\ ]

Haha! I’ll definitely let you guys know how it goes.
14
That sucks. . .

Did you contact the seller about it? 

Revolver gurus (dogman, stang, etc) - Is the cant something that can be tweaked?  I only have experience with canted sights for ARs.  In that case, many times the cant can be "lived with" as long as the rear sight can handle the cant.  But I've also had guns where the cant was "in spec", but it bothered me so I had the mfr (BCM) try to get it more centered.

It’s brand new so I can always send it back to S&W. It’s only minimal and you have to really look for it to notice it.
15
Haha! That will definitely be my excuse.
Then they will look at it and say “where” and I’ll buss out the straight edge.  :rofl:
16
Finally picked up my 686 and it’s ever so slightly misaligned. You won’t really notice it unless you look for it. I plan on taking it to the range and if it shoots well then I’m fine with it. Thanks again for all of your help especially those that I pm’d with questions.
Sorry. I can’t figure out why imgur won’t let me post pics.

Thanks, now i get it. Thats why the title is misaligned and not bent.

It seems like the majority of the post are about misaligned barrels to various degrees. I did see a video on YouTube that the owner claims the hole for the barrel in the frame was drilled crooked. He sent it in twice for repair and finally S&W replaced it.
