I do not wish to add a very important part to the comparison of Stevie Wonder and Ray Charles. Yeah they were poster children for blind students but Stevie is the only one of the two that can shoot,…at all. It’s my thoughts that Ray has passed long away, am I wrong?
I thought they both were dead. I did not know Stevie Wonder was a gun guy though.
I am here to remember that he was a child prodigy in music before most of the “Soul” crowd were recognized. He just got an award at a fancy thing Nobama gave before he left.
I’m almost sold on 10mm. I shot my buddy’s and it was actually smoother than my 40.
I don’t care for a 25 auto, but don’t think very many others like them either.
That is a lot of people’s experience, It’s due to the pressure curve. .40 is always loaded near max to achieve the FBI “lite” load velocities of the 10mm. It burns all that powder rapidly while the 10mm is more of a slower gradual push.
To me that is why the 10mm is almost a magic round. When I was first getting into guns and working at the gun counter I viewed autos as under powered. During one of our range days I just finished one guys .357 SW 686 plus and another guys custom ruger 454 Casull (using his hot 45 LC loads). Then an old grey beard handed me his ugly as sin GLOCK. I put two mags down range shrugged and handed it back. He said the words that changed my world “Now son that is a 10mm It’s more powerful than that .357 you just shot and with more ammo on board to boot” I couldn’t believe it the round was smaller and it shot so much smoother and controllable from the Combat Tupperware. I couldn’t stop reading about it and was an instant convert.
Aw, man. I really liked my Beretta 92FS and regret selling it. I’ve noticed many others on here and on different gun forums don’t like it, though.
In my limited experience as a relatively late-comer newb to the shooting sports, the only one I didn’t care too much for was my friend’s snub-nosed .38. I have skinny but big, calloused palms, and that gun just seemed to sting my palm every time I shot it.
Berettas are alright carried one in the service almost everyday. They are just super chunky for what they are (15 round 9mm). And in the service the factory original mags were the standard. If you got the lowest bidder bottom rack replacement mags the Army ended up with they were hit or miss for reliability.
I used Beretta brand mags. Never had any malfunctions with about 1000 rounds, but I babied it and never had it in any dusty, sandy or wet and muddy conditions like one might find in the military. It felt really good in my hands, but I have slightly larger palms. It was heavy, though.
The factory mags were fine it was the garbage aftermarket replacements that sucked
I despise any firearm that takes a muscle man to pull the trigger, why anyone would put out a gun with a horrible trigger is beyond me, even cheaper ones should have decent triggers. Some of them early Ruger 9mm were horrible and the early SD model smiths were pitiful.
Just about every gun we have I have improved the trigger on. Can’t stand a bad trigger.
