Let's say the 1911's and revolvers. With emphasis on 1911's.
I only have a scandium wheelgun. It's light as hell, small as hell, and hurts like hell to shoot. I carry it if I carry nothing else.
Yeah, I'd be concerned about it stinging a bit more when you fire it. That would be true especially for revolvers.
I'm really curious about the 1911's.
I want a scandium wheel gun for ankle carry. Are they that bad to shoot even in .38sp?
I honestly didn't know they made the 1911's in the scandium frame.
38spl +p isn't bad to shoot. .357 is... uncomfortable to shoot
I just read an interesting S70 vs. S80 page. It seamed to deal mainly with Colt 1911's though.
I thought that was fairly true for all J-frames
by uncomfortable, I mean very painful. I don't carry .357 in it.
I probably won't either
I have no experience with the scandium 1911s, but I have always wanted a scandium 38/357 snubnose. Preferably one with a concealed or shrouded hammer. I may bite the bullet and buy one before the end of the year...
I have handled the Commander sized S&W 1911. Very nice gun. The guy at the shop said his father carried the S&W Commander and his father was very pleased with it. He said he had shot it as well and really liked it. Although he carred a Kimber.
My Colt Officer's is a S80....After reading that article I'm fairly sure that's a good thing.
if its vary painful to shoot, and some wouldn't even shoot .357 through it, why get it in .357 at all?
that's what I tell everyone. get the .38spl and save a couple hundy
the cost factor, and the issue that it's much easier to find holsters for .38spl than .357mag because of the cylinder length (i've heard this in various places )
The first handgun I buy in Jan will be a S&W 642
