Is it really dead?

Difference in reloading cost is about $20.00/1000.

 

Investment in 9mm (holster + moon clips + grip + tuning + extra odds and ends) = + - $1400

 

So it looks like you break even at 70,000 rounds?  

We did the math a few years ago when this was a relevant question, and it included selling your 625. That was the argument back then, instantly a 1200$+ 625 set up went to 6-800$. 
Belts, holsters and grips should work fine from one gun to the other. So all a person needs is a minor gun setup to run. Price difference, with moons, after selling the 625 was 4-600. Reloading cost difference is 20-40$, but even at 20$ a worst case is 20-30k rounds to break even. 
 

Which any competitive shooter should shoot over 2-3 seasons. Even a low volume shooter will make that up. I’ve had a 929 since they came out, one of the first, so that’s 6 years this spring. I’d have had to shot 5k rounds a year, or 400ish rounds a month to make up for the cost. 
 

I agree it sucks having to sell gear and buy new just to stay relevant, but revolver needed something like this. Smith didn’t even make a gun people wanted to use. No one was shooting a 4” 625 at the top, and that’s the only gun they made. The last 3 years nationals had been won with a factory 929.

Pat and I are pretty much the Colorado crew...

 

I havent shot 6 shot major in several years.

 

If we ever end up having matches this year ... I might just go and do that (in IPSC). Probably end up being last out of 6 or 10 revolver shooters. Not the last overall, though, if it goes like previous times.

Send me a PM and I will get you in touch with exactly what you are looking for, I think.  Race ready.   (don't want to make this into a classified thread and it is my buddy's guns, so I can't post them)

I don't my sell guns anymore. If I get tired of shooting/looking at it, I just clean it an put it in the the locker. Of course if somebody just has, to have it!!! and the money's there!!! I will sell one. but as a rule, I just put them in the locker. when I die they become Miss Kendall's problem.
