    Very nice... I'm thinking that 9mm has very minimal recoil?

    What kind of loads did you run through her, Bruce?

    Going to retry the Chrono, tomorrow, too windy today.

    Bear Creek 135 grn lead RN bullets. $58./1000
    W231 powder 3.4, 3.7, 3.9 grains
    Unique Powder 3.7, 3.8, 3.9 grains

    I shot some lesser loads I made & some Unique 3.9's. The max Unique load is 4.1 grn. The recoil is not bad. I was surprised by the muzzle rise w/ the 3.9 load, tho. But very comfortable to shoot. The gun ran better on the hotter loads. When it gets broken in, I think a medium load w/ a lesser recoil spring will be real fun to shoot fast. I'm going to try a trigger job ( now a 6.5 lb) & put an ambidexterous safety on it.

    I found this gun on *********. $830. Paid some CA sales tax & transfer/DROS fees. Had to buy some magazines for it. ( stinkin' California 10 round limit ) Para Factory only for 9mm. 4 mags @ $49. It was listed as used, but the gun is darn pristine. Only found a few marks on the bottom of the mainspring housing. My FFL was impressed. I'm very pleased with it, I love those Para wide frame grips!

    So how long did you wander around the house with it? Did you play with it while watching TV? I'll bet you did. I do.:D:D:D
