    the slide sticking if the cat or anything else decided to visit while I was fixing fence.

    What if there are more critters than 6 can take care of.

    But you're not alone in your opinion. I love the 686, I have it ready in the house in
    case the wife (or I) needs to get to it quick. I trust our lives to it as well.

    I am familiar with the contender, just couldn't read the caliber written on your barrel. Thanks for sharing.

    Raven,

    That's a Jericho pistol right? How do they shoot? Is it a light single action trigger like a 1911?

    I've shot a few of those baby eagles, the single action is like most single actions maybe 3.5-4 pounds trigger weight. The Jerichos are pretty nice when the trigger is well broken in though. Very smooth but still heavy unless you do a trigger job and change out the mainsprings.

    Business casual is an airweight S&W in a pocket holster. Night outings and more anticipated shady possibilities are a Sig 232 with nite sites carried AIWB with a reload. I tried carrying evrything from a Diddle Eye Joe to Damned if I know and these are what I ended up with. Glock 17,19, 26 all would work and Sig 239 is a good weapon as well. These were the weapons I owned when I had twins and got gun poor

    Welcome Jolfe. Nice combo there. I am a Glock fan myself, there are several of us here
    that carry Glocks. That looks like a G17. Any trouble getting ammo in Indiana.

    Hey... Sorry for the late response . Yes, that's a Jericho 941 double action pistol with a SS barrel and polygonal rifling. One of the best pistols I've ever owned. Heavy as a brick and crazy accurate .

    While on-duty I carried an HK USP 9mm for about 7 years and later switched it out for my Baby Eagle/UZI Eagle (when it was distributed by Mossberg) and later the Baby Eagle/Jericho (distributed by KBI) with the accessory rail and also used it while on a ERT. Amazing weapon and have full confidence in using it. I'd put it against any other brand out there without hesitation... but, that's just me . Take Very Good Care and Be Safe Always.

    God Bless

    Yes, that one is the P7M13. It's an incredible shooter. Extremely accurate, thanks to the fixed barrel. A very nice, crisp, single action trigger. Fast mag changes (on slide lock, after ejecting the mag and inserting a new one, squeezing the front strap drops the slide, chambers the round and cocks the striker). The only downside is it gets extremely hot around the trigger area after a few mags of fast shooting, due to the gas piston. Great guns, and some very impressive engineering under the grips. I also find it interesting that if you squeeze and hold the trigger, then squeeze the front strap, it will fire. So you can use the squeeze cocker as a sort of double action trigger.

    A very interesting pistol, but for carry, I prefer smaller guns, usually a Kahr PM9 with a Seecamp .380 backup.

    Yes! Getting ammo around here is pretty crazy. For instance, my wife and I frequently visit our local Gander Mountain and are amazed (and saddened) to see the ammo shelves nearly empty week after week. Sure, you can still purchase a lot of centerfire ammo pretty easily (e.g. 7mm, .30-06, .270), as well as shotgun rounds, but trying to find 9mm, .380, .45, .357--or even .22's, is nearly impossible. Most stores around here, including Wal-Mart, have a two box limit on most ammo. It doesn't take but a few hours for most of the pistol ammo to sell out entirely. Doesn't look like we'll be doing much shooting this summer, unfortunately. May have to start re-loading from scratch again just to have some ammo on hand.
