So I figured I should start this as a replacement to my scattered notes on shooting, this way they are in one place. Maybe others can help or my experience can help someone else out. I will try my best to organize posts for my own and other's sake. It may very well turn into an actual diary since shooting sports have quickly become a true passion of mine.
Hello all, So I got pushed to Open for the Area match, lucky for me I had my big mags with me for 3Gun. But here is why... My gun weighed in at 30oz, granted I did have a tungsten guide rod and a new spring (net weight diff between stock and mods 1.15oz), so with that in mind my gun should have made weight, NROI weight of 27.44 +1.15 , should keep me well with in the +2oz allowed by the rules. So the hunt begins as to why I did not make weight.. SO my gun all Stock parts returned weighed in at 28.85 (still dirty form the match)... well that is over already.. Oh wait I have a Gen 2 pro. So what I am looking for from the hive mind, is this, if you have a STOCK Pro Series 9mm and a good scale can you weigh it on and let me know. I am looking for Gen 1 and Gen 2 readings. As an aside note, the Gen 1 Mags weight in at 3.20oz and the newer mags are 3.05, so when you go it get the gun weight check what you have with you. I did not. Also trying to get details from S&W on this as they have "dropped" many of the variations of the Pro Series off there web page along with the 9L (not the CORE). Thanks for the help. Kevin
I really wish I had started shooting revolvers sooner. I sold most of my guns when I went overseas for school and now that I'm back am rebuilding a collection of "basic" guns of which a .22 pistol is mandatory. Because everyone that I know has a Buckmark or a Mark II/III I decided that I would be different. I got a revolver, a class of gun I was heretofore utterly unexposed to. Searching for a suitable gun I came across this guy, a secondhand 617, and it is hands down the best handling .22 pistol I've ever shot. It is a laser on the range. Suffice to say, I appreciate revolvers now. I have seen the light. My next purchase is definitely going to be a 686.
