I guess we'll just have to disagree.

#2 People who buy cheap handguns for self-defense need to ask themselves what value they place on themselves, spouses, kids, grandkids etc. The POS guns have a much higher probability of malfunctio...

I don't duck hunt all that much, nor do I hunt quail or doves a lot. But I know they can "sneak up" on me, and I find that I sometimes have to shoulder the gun and fire more quickly than I'd like to. That (and shooting clays) is when gun fit is important (to me).

I have about 30-40 cases (7500-10000 rounds) of low brass sporting clays shells through mine, plus ~ 1/2 case of magnum duck loads. Mine has never hiccupped a single time.
I do try to clean it every 1000 rounds or so. Maybe that's why it's so reliable.

One or two of those "reasons" are [u]theoretically[/u] valid. But there's a point of diminishing returns with handguns (all of which are relatively puny -- compared to shotguns and centerfire rifles).

Very few HP .380's (maybe Buffalo Bore) will penetrate 12" (in ballistic gel - this is the FBI minimum for penetration) and expand to over .80 caliber out of a short barrel.
Federal HST in 9mm will do this. And the 9mm bullet will be heavier (147 grain) vs. ~ 80-90 grain for a .380...

Lot of good advice from Tiger on the Hill. ^^^
Much of the advice posted earlier in this thread is surely well-intentioned. But a lot of it is misguided.

2. 380 < 9mm. Why on ...

That's the right way. Those small guns do make it harder to stay clear of the ejection port.
I guess that's another "benefit" of the out-of-battery feature. [u]Theoretically[/u] the gun can't go off while you have the slide pulled back. But I'm with you -- I don't want my hand or fingers over the...
| Outdoor Board|| re: Bought a Shield 9mm today(update pg3) - dawg23 on 7/15/14 at 9:22 am|
I can see where the "out of battery" might be disconcerting for those used to revolvers.
All semi-autos will have this attribute. It's a safety feature. It means you can't shove the muzzle into a guy's rib cage before you pull the trigger, but that's about the only "downside" that I can see.
