Brought a poor wayward orphan home today.

Rescued from foster care at Arnzen Arms this afternoon. S&W M325PD.

Now all I need to do is find some time to shoot it.

Brought the new charge out to the range this afternoon.

Recoil is a little sharper than the 1911 and the sights are high, but I think I can live with it.

I've wanted a revolver for years, but always managed to talk myself out of it for one reason or another. I was looking at a nice M29 Classic at Scheels in Rochester a couple weeks ago. I passed on it because I really didn't want another caliber to reload, and I'm not as recoil tolerant as I use to be. (at least that's what I told myself) :D

Moonclips are kind of a PITA loading and declipping them, and I don't think I'll ever be able to reload anyway near as fast as my Colt, but as I said, it's nice not having to chase brass.

Nice choice of revolvers.
Have a 625 here and started with the tool from demooner.com, then added the moonclip stripper from Brownells. Way easier on the hands.
The storage bottles are just vitamin bottles with spindles cut from cd/dvd racks and epoxied into the caps. Also stuffed a piece of foam into the bottle for the spindle to bottom out on, and epoxied some hardware just for weight onto the outside of cap. Keeps moonclips clean and rust-free. (as long as ya clean & oil them before putting them in there :D )

I always thought those PD line of Smith and Wessons were pretty sharp. Nice addition!

My 1 and only revolver became a Smith 29-5 because I wanted a revolver and deer hunting became the excuse... er... justification.

There is certainly something about the operation of a revolver that makes you want to keep shooting them. I like clicks and turning cylinders. But I think food is all I'll choose to fight with a revolver. I feel pretty clunky trying to work one quickly.
