the ATF normaly takes two months to process suppressor and SBR paperwork. you would think that a local PD could work a little faster than that!

My husband reloads ...but the Federal 22 rimfire rounds are great in the S&W 1522.

The S&W M&P 9C is one of our favorite, accurate, reliable guns we own.

Every gun is different and what ammo that works well in one gun won't necessarily work well in other guns. As a gun owner, you need to find out what ammo works best in each of your guns.

Or...just start reloading yourself!!!

GUN(s) used today.

S&W M&P 9MM fullsize and a M&P subcompact.
.357 MAGNUM
S&W .38 Special
Old 12 guage.

Smith and wessons ate up the Federal Ammunition and kept going for more. Very clean, NO malfunctions, dead accurate. There was over 400 rounds put between both before we ran out rented time. I would not hesitate to get a Smith and Wesson M&P.

.357 was fun, but only brought a box since its kinda pricey. Would love one of these in my collection, but will wait.

.38 special shot a box of hollow points, with a few malfunctions. I think it was "dirty" ammo that made those malfunctions with no-name ammo.

Old shotgun shot fine after the first few shots. Old girl hasnt been shot in YEARS according to the friend that owns it. First shell shot, didnt fully eject the shell out of the gun. A few cycles of the action seemed to clear up that problem..Shot no problems the rest of the box of Winchester.

I wish I could have more technial information of the Federal Ammo, but there wasnt much to examine. They shot great, and will probably be the bullet of choice once I'm able to purchase my Glock.

Smith and Wesson fullsize, and compact were awesome shooting guns.

Although the range was only 50 yards, we shot mostly 25 and under. No need to push a 9MM out to 50 yards. I will go back hopefully when I get my gun, and I'd like to experiment tho. I wasn't trying to punish a weapon today, since one was a self defense weapon(personal gun) for my friend who is a corrections officer.

Overall, everything preformed well today..This is going to be an expensive hobby.
What type of malfunction in the .38? Wheelguns don't usually screw up.

I've had that for a few years now, just waiting on my handgun permit.

In Jersey, you are required to purchase a handgun permit to buy a handgun, and I believe its only one gun, every 30 days. New permit each gun

at $22 a pop per permit, it gets quite expensive.
I put in for both when I was 5 weeks away from turning 21. When I turned 21 I went down to my PD and picked em up. bought my .357 mag an d 12 gauge. you can get multiple permits at once but they expire every 90 days and you can extend them an additional 90 days. And new jersey is a "one gun a month" state. the pennsylvanians have it so much easier

see they are required by law to have it to you in 30 days and if you really wanted to you could take legal action. but thats expensive. they typically give the excuse "so- and so is on vacation" and they always say 6-8 weeks or "its all gunna depend on how fast your reference letters come back"

Well..I finally got my permit back, 3 months and 5 days later. The ink wasnt even dry yet and I have my brand new G17.

Sorry I havent kept up on this thread. The malfunction in the .38 was i believe just dirty ammo. I took it apart and cleaned it that day at the range, and it fired fine afterwards.


I was buying my glock, and eyeing up the ruger revolver in the case next to it. Dunno what size it was, didnt have the money for it anyways at the time.

I'm already looking into my next purchase lol

This weekend will be a 3 day weekend for me, so maybe sun/monday the gun will see some range time.

To expensive to get into it for what I'm going to shoot. We used to have all the stuff to do it, but my dad sold it off years ago when I was still a youngin
