Re: First Gun

Future Pilot, must admit the idea of getting a good quality .22 and practicing is an excellent idea. And I must admit that the P-64 makes a good CC gun, easy to hide and easy to use when needed, but I also carry other sidearms depending on my perceived need or just how I feel that day. And that bein...

Re: P64 strength

you shot 9x19 in a 9x18 Makarov caliber pistol??!! :shock: That is asking for a missing hand or parts thereof. 9x18's are all blowback style whereas almost all 9x19's are locked breach type. This is because the pressures developed by the 9x19 are sooo much higher than a 9x18. Shooting 9x19 in a 9x18...

Re: P64 strenght

I have not had a great day here, and I just did it again dalek. Misread your question, thought you were asking about how many rounds not how HOT the rounds are. :oops: Anyway, the abnswer is the PA-63 will not tolerate +P or high pressure loads OR loads with a heavier bullet than 95gr and it is beca...

Re: P64 strenght

The PA-63 most likely would come apart before the Makarov, P-64 or CZ-82 because the PA-63's frame is aluminum whereas the rest all have steel frames. However, I had a PA-63 (sold it and sorta regret it :roll: ) that had a round count of over 10K with no frame damage or excessive wear that I could f...

Re: FMJ or HP in 9x18?

Dalek, please give us a range report on those Buffalo Bore 115gr hard casts! I have been wondering about those for winter use in my CZ82 and P-64 but cannot find anyone who has fired them. Inquiring minds want to know! :shock:

Re: Good read on stopping power

I agree with Curly1, shot placement is all important, but a solid hit with a larger caliber, heavier bullet beats smaller and lighter every time i think. However, I also believe any gun with you is better than no gun! :)

Re: My PA-63 and recoil, am I weird?

Go red wings! No rwing, you are not wierd as I myself do not find either the P-64 nor the PA-63 to have excessive recoil. I guess it's like all in who you are and what your perception of "excessive" is. By the way, I too love the Wings.

Re: Book on Wound Trauma in Handguns

I own and have read the last 2 books in a 3 book series by Evan Marshall and Ed Sanow called Stopping Power (2 books) and Street Stoppers. Excellent books, veeery informative, very well written with multiple did and did not work scenarios where actual loads were used in gunfights. They do cover the ...

Re: Finally got to the range

Bear, glad you had a good range session. I prefer to have the front sight red and the rear in green. The color difference makes it easy to realize which is actually the front sight. I know this sounds funny but if the front and the rear are the same color it is not a far stretch to confuse the front...

Re: How to choose hammer spring strength?

I replaced my stock spring with the 17# spring. The SA did get a little bit lighter, but that only made it better in my opinion. Lots of lead downrange since the change and no failures to ignite from light hits and no problems with mags dropping. I will stick with my 17# spring.

Welcome to the brotherhood bear34. I think you will find that respect for others is very important here, as well as the high degree of knowledge and experience amongst the membership. I trust only an extremely select few when it comes to their weapons skills and or abilities, so I understand exactly...

Re: Bought a P-64. Best place to Buy Magazines?

I bought 2 mags from SOG, they were the real deal (serial number engraved), they were in as good if not better condition than the one that came with my P-64 and have so far proven reliable. And shipping was reasonable although I cannot remember the exact figure. I think they have a good deal on mags...
