I have a friend who is an absolute magician on a Colt's revolver; PM me and I'll give you his contact information.Are there any Gun Service Speciaists still doing Colt Revolvers?
I fired a Colt Cobra (Shell Scott Model) once, but I went with a S&W Bodyguard.
Who is curious.
While I vehemently disagree with the terms "center-mass" and "center of mass" as they are neither anatomically useful or correct, I have no issue with relying on .38 Special ammunition. I carry a pair of S&W 640-1's and, a few years back, for a combination of reasons, swapped the 110 gr. Magnum loads I used to carry for CorBon's 110 gr. +P .38 DPX. (There are other good .38 Special loads but, since my revolvers have only two-inch barrels, I prefer to spend the extra money to get what I believe will give me the maximum performance from the short barrels. I am perfectly comfortable using the old 158 gr. FBI load with a longer barrel.)spwenger,
a .38spl fired into center-mass is perfectly suitable medicene to END an armed confrontation. (NOTHING, that doesn't hit the target, is enough gun.) = imVho, you probably don't need anything more for self-defense.
"threefeathers":It is in excellent condition. I have to use a revolver in a bunch of drills with Mas, I've been using a K Frame and a J Frame and I've gotten fairly proficient but I have a real fondness for Colts. Is the D-Back serviceable for using a lot?
I have heard plenty of reports, from both "old cops" and medical personnel, of .35-caliber or larger rounds that simply penetrated lungs - even if in and out - and failed to incapacitate.spwenger,
fwiw, i am unfamiliar with any location in the center of the torso that is not a disabling or mortal wound with any .35cal or larger hollow-point bullet, moving at normal .38spl factory velocity or more.
