Does anyone else's p-64....

Post by 115grfmj » April 21st, 2007, 6:11 pm

Repeatedly........BITE you :'(??? I literally can't make it through 50 rounds with out giving blood. The frame whacks me on the base of my thumb so hard, I get bone bruises. Now before anyone says and thing I'm not recoil shy at all, I own REAL ;D hard kicking weapons.....I've just never had something that was down right unpleasant to shoot. It's too bad, I love the thing, and am not planning on getting rid of it.....but D#*M. Anybody have any advice????

My wife wears a weight lifters glove that has no fingers but has nice padding in the web and palm of the hand. She says it reduces the recoil to a manageable level.

No problem Papabear,
Those gloves come from Walmart by the way, something like $8.
OFF SUBJECT: Went to a Dayton Ohio gun show yesterday with a guy from work. He wanted to buy his very first firearm and wanted a P-64. We found a near mint 1974 triangle hammer for $165.00. He was a happy camper. He picked up 2 boxes of Silver Bear and another P-64 fan is born. There were 2 other P-64's at the gun show but they had conciderable wear to the finish. That's no problem except they were'nt priced accordingly. We finally have a beautiful weekend (too bad it wasnt like this for Knob Creek) and my wife and I got some range time in yesterday as well , ahhh let the good weather begin!!

115grfmj,

Mine used to bite me and beat me bad . . . untill I started loading my own. Tone the load down just a touch and it is, quite literally, my favorite gun to shoot. In my opinion, the p-64 alone is reason enough to invest in reloading. But, I begin to repeat myself . . .

God bless and straight shooting,

-Kempin

hey Kempin , i also started re-loading and reduced the loads and when i ran out of the 50 i had i still really wanted to shoot more, yessiree ! the P-64 also made me consider reloading. i am very pleased with the loads i have made, and i am just beginning to experiment with different loads. my first bullets all shot really good groups and i was shooting with a heavy crosswind. REALLY HEAVY crosswind. anyways they are better than store-bought and tuned to my gun well . i will still gladly buy store bought ammo to compare and enjoy , but i do love my own handloads more. i think the lighter loads will add to the life of my pistol as well as my hand .

Glad to hear, Garry. Just stopped out to the range this morning to tinker with a couple of rifle loads, and as I had a clean target up when I was done, I thought I would try my p-64 at 25 yards. 21 rounds all within an eight inch circle, more than half in the four inch center circle. That was from a rest, but still . . . this thing just loves a custom load.

GBASS,

-Kempin
