Absolute ditto with Bruce.The "conventional wisdom" is the .380 is the minimum caliber for self-defense, but I'm not sold on it unless one is using a really hot load (Corbon, etc.). I'm also definitely not sold on Ruger autos; their first generations were such pieces of garbage that I've never been able to get past that in my head.
Not MA compliant yet. They must still be LEO OK since the shop had one on the shelf. I have SW990L compact 9mm, no problems there so far, really like it. Just still looking for something a little smaller.Are they mass compliant yet?
I love revolvers, and if I were sure every off-duty armed encounter would be purely defensive, I'd carry one in a heartbeat.Every time I look for a new gun, it all comes back to the revolver. Something about it is so cool.
Interstate Arms. It has to be a department purchase as it is not on the MA approved roster. $200.00 got us the gun and a spare magazine.jyanis, where'd you pick yours up? Can't find them in Mass.
There was a recall. THey fixed the hammer mechanism. Took 2 weeks and they gave us a free magazine with a pinky extension for our trouble. Not bad!!Wasn't there a recall with the LCP? Every time I look for a new gun, it all comes back to the revolver. Something about it is so cool.
Plus it makes training so much easier when you go to the range with your issued 22 and your personal 27. Use the big mags and you have to load your baby mags that many fewer times. Doesn't make your hand hurt any less though........I got my G26 when we still carried 9mm's, now I'm just too cheap to upgrade to the G27.
