    Ordered a Spikes lower receiver this weekend. Not sure yet if it'll be a pistol or a rifle.

    A snub nose revolver something in .357. I’m still researching!

    Spiffing piece! My only gripe is that Shadow 1 has better thumb safety, but that is easily fixable

    Okay after the official announcement and clarification on the guns specs the Sig Sauer P365 has jumped to the top of my list. How can you beat 10+1 is a G43/Shield size gun?

    OMG! That looks fantastic! I want but I will wait until the real world feedback comes in. I hate to dive in and find out there are wrinkles to iron out.

    We have 2 Model 605's from Taurus and I'm good with both of them but others like the Smith 36 and the Ruger SP101, which is a totally awesome tank.

    Thank bro! I’ll definitely check out the Taurus. My only experience with wheel gun was a Dan Wesson with 6 inch barrel over 20 years ago.

    I must amend this posting. I recently attended a Glock Armorers Course in which I became educated on the Gen 5. If I remember correctly, there are 27 changes made to enhance the life of the gun and reduce the need for maintenance. Now I want one too.

    A Smith & Wesson Model 349 or Ruger SP101 would be my choices for a magnum snub nose revolver. But if you are not a recoil junkie these pocket rockets sure have some kick.

    I wish I kept my S&W M19 2" .357.

    Unless absolutely positively necessary, never ever sell a gun

    Thank bro! Snub nose anything northt of 22 will kick like a mule. My research evolved around how much and how other handle it. Got to find time to test out some at my local shooting spots.

    Pretty sure I’m set on a 5” GP100, telling myself it will be awhile but it never works out that way.

    Snub nose wheel guns are great. Easily concealed, fun to shoot, and real old school. I've been eying a Colt Detective Special recently. Fabulous guns and performance. If all possible if you decide to go Smith & Wesson find one that does not have the internal lock. Not to start a debate but just a matter of taste. Enjoy and be safe.

    Just placed an order for a Ruger Securoty 9 as I need a handgun that will be compatible with my Ruger PC Carbine.

    I also ordered a Sig P365 as that's the one I've been waiting for the announcement of for since I heard about it in November. My BUG is my PPS M2 and I love it but the P365 in a 10+1 g43 sized package is to hard to pass up.

    I figure the Security 9 will be here within a week but the P365 my buddy hasn't got a firm ship date yet so that may be a couple months yet.

    You're gonna like that Shield. Great trigger for what it is, and fun to shoot for being so small.
