Quote from: billy rubin on February 27, 2023, 12:39:57 AMthe double stack is the 84. not so common, as you say. but with a spare magazine the 85 has 17 shots.i really like the old 70 series berettas. an automatic point, at least for me. but its been gone 50 years, and collectors have bid up the price.the only problem i have with the 85 is that it has an ambidextrous safety, normally a plus. but in this crossdraw holster, ordinary movement standing up and sitting down causes the leather under the lever to flip the safety off. it still cant fire without almost a full double action triggrr pull, but i like the safety. not sure whether thered a workaround or not
Quote from: Dark Lightning on February 27, 2023, 02:19:00 AMI wouldn't even try CC with my pistol. It's a Model 28 Smith & Wesson .357 revolver with a 6 inch barrel. Nicknamed the "Highway Patrolman" because it is an unpolished version of the Model 27, thus less expensive. I only get ~4" groups at 25 feet using a Weaver stance. Benchrest shooting yields ~2" groups. I wouldn't use it even for personal protection in the house, though.
Quote from: jumbojak on February 27, 2023, 03:03:02 AMThe fix for that is a proper holster. I know that a lot of people prefer leather for comfort but kydex is a vastly superior material and custom holster makers abound. A holster that can manipulate a control is nearly as bad as one that doesn't protect the trigger.
