9 mm Range Officer

NNNN Senior MemberPosts: 25,146 Senior Member
I found one NIB at that pawn shop on the way to the next city.

They are holding it for me until tomorrow so Mrs. Clean can be there and write the check and say Happy V-day.

I plan on it being my primary SD 9mm.

More to follow.

    I'll try them, though the .45 RO did not like copper HP's which is the kind of 147 gr I have on hand.

    9mm HPs have a much narrower meplat. I suspect few feeding issues.

    Same place she was with you when you bought your 29?
    Also, sounds like you may not need your 9mm revolver any more?

    In other words:

    I don't always carry a 9mm, but when I do, I carry a Range Officer.

    I had been using a XDm on the occasion that I wanted to carry 3/4 of a box of ammo.

    I went to the gun doctor and he said I should up my game to once a day 1911 9mm.
