E said, with good maintenance and cleaning helps prevent this. Jamming is uncommon but not unheard of with my friends who shoot pistols. I think some semi-auto pistols like some semi-auto rifles can be "picky" with what cartridge to use, this could be a problem.

Re: Gun Talk/ Gun Show thread.

The only pistols I ever had had problems with jamming or "smoke stacking" have all been .22's. The rounds are just so small that they get easily tangled up when a new one is extracted from the mag.

I had a Kel-tec 9mm that would stove pipe on me when I would put 100-200 rounds through it at the range. It was very finicky. I haayaaayted that gun.

Well, there's your problem!

I probably meant to say stove piping, but have heard it referred to as smoke stacking as well. lol

BTW, I carry a S&W bodyguard 38 special with laser.
My personal protection pistol is a 357 magnum revolver so I don't need no stinkin' laser! If I hit them anywhere the are not going to keep coming. LOL

(I am getting the Lasermax laser for my wifes Ruger 380 LCP though and I just bought a green laser for my AR 15)

"We did not wear uniforms. The lady workers dressed in the current fashions of the day, ...silks...satins...jewels or whatever they happened to possess. They were very smartly turned out, so that they made an impressive appearance on the streets where a large part of our work was conducted in the early years.

"It was not until long after, when former Holiness preachers had become part of us, that strict plainness of dress began to be taught.

"Although Entire Sanctification was preached at the beginning of the Movement, it was from a Wesleyan viewpoint, and had in it very little of the later Holiness Movement characteristics. Nothing was ever said about apparel, for everyone was so taken up with the Lord that mode of dress seemingly never occurred to any of us."

Re: Gun Talk/ Gun Show thread.

As far as home defense, a good ole shotgun is your best bet. I got a Remington 12 gauge in my closet. Don't have to be accurate.

a 357 is probably the only revolver I would own if I were to get one.

Randy,
Do you carry your Glock 19? I just bought a S&W M&P 9 and it's the same size as your Glock 19. I love the way it shoots but I am having issues wanting to carry it in my purse. I thought I wouldn't mind the weight when I bought. I was carrying a 38 S&W snub nose airweight. It was light but someone would have to be right in front of me to hit them. I don't want anyone that close. For now, I keep it in my car and bring it in a night. Maybe I will get use to the weight.

I haven't been carrying the Glock because I have not had a chance to shoot it yet. Since it doesn't have a safety (and I always carry one in the chamber) I really need to know what the trigger pull feels like as well as the break point before I am comfortable having it on me. Size wise, I like it though. I have an inside the belt holster that fits perfect.
