New Shipment!

I received an e-mail from J & G Sales today stating that they have received a new shipment of Polish P64 pistols. They have lowered the price by $5 each if you buy as few as two. I'm sorely tempted....

deep concealment!?

big54r, I have a SmartCarry that I originally bought for my Ruger LCP. The LCP is off for recall work and I've been carrying my P64 in the SmartCarry just fine. There are several places where deep concealment is a must for me. SmartCarry provides that. I wear it with front-pleated Dockers style pant...

Wolff Springs Starting To Piss Me Off!

Range report: The 20# recoil spring is perfect! It really softened recoil and the pistol cycles perfectly. What really continues to impress me is the accuracy. At 15 yards, standing, two-handed grip, no bench rest or other support: 4 of 7 in a 2 1/2" group. Now y'all may not think that's too good, b...

Anybody try the new DeSantis M44 holster?

I feel it is worth the extra. I bought one for my Ruger LCP. If I put it in the front pocket, it looks just like a wallet. Certainly not a firearm. The cover flap is held by Velcro, so I can wear it in the left or right pocket. In my opinion, it is just a little more concealable.

Wolff Springs Starting To Piss Me Off!

My 20 lb should be in early this week. I had the problems you mentioned with the 22 lb. I'll let you know how mine works. I haven't had the problems you describe with the beaver tail. I'm guessing our hands are just built different? I carry my P64 with one in the tube. I've been practicing cocking t...

recoil same,worse or not as bad as 357 revolver

Jason, I envy you living so close to J & G! It's probably best that I don't live that close!! I have a Ruger Security Six 6" barrel, Ruger Blackhawk 6 1/2" bbl, and a Rossi M462 2" bbl. Like you, I shoot 357 rounds in them. I don't think the P64 has worse recoil than my 357's. It's just different. J...

Great Vest!

From the NRA store, I bought the black Boar Hide vest. It's only about $60 and it is very sharp! And extremely functional! I have a 40" chest, so I bought the large. It was too big!!! I notified the store, sent it back, and quickly received a medium. The service was exceptional! The medium fits me w...

Wolff Springs Starting To Piss Me Off!

That's great news, trace! I went to the range yesterday and fired 100 rounds without incident. I am using the 18 lb hammer spring and the stock recoil spring. The recoil is a little more abrupt than I prefer, but it sure doesn't hurt the accuracy! I did order the 20 lb recoil spring today. I have to...

Polishing the feed ramp

I've only been into semi-auto pistols for about 9 months. I've learned a lot but still have lots to learn. So I need a thorough explanation. My P64 feeds Brown/Silver Bear FMJ perfectly. Silver Bear JHP doesn't feed consistently. My FEG PA-63 handles FMJ and Silver Bear JHP just fine, but won't feed...

Bersa Thunder 380 Plus?

Oh, and I do have a Bersa Thunder 380. It's not the Plus, but I like it. It took awhile to find JHP ammo that was reliable, but I now carry Remington 88gr JHP in it. It's a good shooter, sturdy, quite accurate.
