Defensive Ammo

Papa bear, Nothing wrong with either the .357 mag or the 45acp! I have one of each. The .357 mag is a Dan Wesson 8 inch vent-heavy barrel that I bought used, and it must be 20 years old. Probably, it is the most accurate handgun in my collection. I also inherited a .45 Colt. I like the Colt because ...

Defensive Ammo

The powrball in 9mm is by far the most devestating 9mm cartridge I've ever seen. I am excited to learn that a powrball in 9mm Mak has come out. I learn so much by reading the posts on this site. As soon as I can get some I will. I like the Hornady stuff, but it fails to feed about 1 in 10 times--OK,...

Camo Grips

Space and Abwehr, Thanks for the advice. I hadn't thought about an ultrasonic cleaner, but I live in Knoxville, Tennessee and I wouldn't be surprised if there isn't someone around that has one that might be willing to give me access. In the meantime, I'm gonig to try baking my 1968 pistols. This has...

Camo Grips

Space, I was wondering, before baking the P-64, do you go any further with dissassembly than taking off the grips, or is that enough? Also, about how long do you leave the P-64 in the oven? Do you let the pistol cool any before applying the WD-40 or do you put it on just after it comes out of the ov...

Camo Grips

Folks, Thanks to all of you so much for your advice in this area. I agree that the recoil power seems to 'channel' down to the hand. Most peculiar. I've had some friends shoot both of my P64's, and we all agree it the guns are accurate, reliable and hurts the hand. My intent was to use the P-64 as a...

Camo Grips

Howdy, I am new to the forum. I read about the P-64 first in Gun Tests and even though they gave it a "don't buy" rating, I was interested, because they said that the reasons were almost impossible trigger pull and bad recoil. However, they also noted that their gun functioned perfectly and was accu...
