Just bought myself a P-64. I haven't taken it to the range yet, but I intend to swap out the recoil spring and the hammer spring before I do. General pistol thread.

I've heard collectors and enthusiasts complain about that lock effecting the action of the trigger/hammer pull. It sounds like Smith tried fixing something that wasn't broken.

There have been cases where when firing, the safety lock engaged and stuck the hammer in its rearward position or locked it up when the hammer was down. The gun would be locked with a loaded cylinder and no way to open it without the key.

It was introduced during the late 90's because of lawyers and the company that owned Smith and Wesson was ironically pretty anti gun. They supporter the '94 AWB and all the mag restrictions. The lock is just something that's carried on because smith thinks its a better idea to have the lock internal instead of just shipping the gun with the stupid locks people throw away. Just like every other firearms manufacture.

Except Taurus.

Just got my IWB holster in the mail today, I've been trying it out.

I've mentioned on this board before that I manage rental properties for my family in a bad neighborhood, and they want me to carry concealed on the property. This is after we had a shooting where some thugs shot up one of our buildings.

Anyway, the P-64 is nice and small and doesn't print noticeably when worn with a polo. I'm a bit concerned with the 6+1 capacity, so I might purchase another magazine to carry with me. There's also the option of running back to my office to grab one of my rifles in the event I run out of rounds and there are still threats in the area.

I had planned on swapping out the hammer spring for a lighter one to deal with the massive double action trigger pull, but I'm rethinking that. The stiff trigger pull could act as a safety feature, as there is NO WAY that weapon is going to discharge accidentally without the hammer being pulled back, so I can carry it with a round in the chamber and the safety off, but the hammer in the forward position. I would never do that with any other weapon, but with the P-64, it seems like the best approach.

How is it going to discharge with the hammer in the forward position, even if dropped? Is that possible?

Home defense discussion starting here let's get techniques we use (don't share them all dumbass) techniques we like, what works, what doesn't, what weapons are better and why etc.

I'll go first.

Great idea to get a battery operated security system set up. Either wire it to call EMS or notify you (and possibly all relevant residents who know what to do if a breakin occurs).

You don't want a security system attached to your main grid. First of all power outages happen all the time for completely natural reasons but these are also heightened times of robbery and breakins because people are more vulnerable and desperate. Keep it on a battery, off the line, low power motion sensor, arm it when you leave or are battening down the hatches for the night. Peace of mind.

Store guns and ammo separately, especially when asleep. You don't want to be shot with your own weapon. Keep a flashlight and the key to your safe nearby. Unless you're doing watches in shifts, a loaded gun is a hazard even if you're a light sleeper. You're more likely to wake up in a dazed state of mind and grab your loaded weapon and shoot someone you care about by mistake unless you have to think about what you're doing.
Trust me on this one. Do not get overconfident about this. The exceptions are doing watches in shifts, living alone with no chance of surprise hello dear I unlocked the door and snuck right in to bring you a present visits and of course when you're awake and have the weapon in sight at all times or on your person.

Keep your car inside a locked garage when not in use. The garage should be attached to your house, not separate.

Cut branches overhanging the roof of your house, aside from decreasing hazards during storms it gives home invaders one less way to get inside.

Keep a maglite next to your bed.
>you can basically kick the shit out of someone with it.

I would take a gun safety course if you won guns especially one thta incorporates martial arts that teach you from getting your weapon taken away from you.

As for a dog evem those small yippy dogs are good because they bark at all intruders. And you cam get a larger meaner dog to add to your defense.

I like keeping my tv or radio on when Im not at home so if someone does break in they think Im home. I also recommend owning mutliple cars and mixing up your travel if you live in a urban but residential area. That way nobody knows if your home or not.

I think OP is a bit paranoid though.

Step 1) Don't allow your attacker within arm's reach of your firearm.
Step 2) There is no step two. If you felt sufficiently threatened to draw your firearm then you should have been prepared to use it if the attacker did not back down. By the time they've gotten at arm's reach you should have already started ventilating them.

...So your approach to weapons retention is the same as Phil Elmore's approach to groundfighting, ie, he avoids it by never learning it?

There is invisible paint, that can only be seen by a certain light spectrum.
Just engineer a round that can fire that.

>There is zero reason why people should be allowed to use anything other than basic defence or hunting weapons. Things like M4s, AKs, etc. have no reason to exist in western society.

OP nice troll bait.

Instead of being pro-active our solutions are reactive.
Drunk driving and MADD is a good example.
The Bush regiemes response to 9/11 is another example.
The Response to the 2008 Financial Crisis is an example.

Most of these active shootings can be stopped before hand, by reaching out to these people;be nice to the weird dude who might have an AR-15 so if he does decide to go bezerk he wont kill you.

It would also be nice to have a Walther and being good with it just incase you felt like stopping him.

The Shooting that happened at my college a year ago today ended because the police were proactive enough to kill him before he could barricade himself in and take hostages.
