Contest Winners 2 & 3

Just got emails from Colleen and Mazie. Guess what??? They both are now armed women!!

Mazie bought the Ruger SP 101.  Part of her email to me...

I finally bought my gun, AGirl, the Ruger SP101 .327 Federal Magnum revolver. Now I have my Browning Buck Mark .22 semi-automatic handgun, and my Ruger SP101 .327 Fed Mag revolver. How wonderful is that!? I had to sell the Glock 9mm because it just didn't fit my hand well. It was too fat and blocky for me to hold well. I sure loved my Glock though! I do plan on buying another 9mm in the near future. I emailed the nice people who offered to donate ammo with the details and they're going to get the ammo out to me. What wonderful folks! I can't express enough how grateful I am for all.

Colleen purchased the new S&W Shield.  This is what she had to say...

My S&W M&P9 Shield came in yesterday!!!!!! I read articles, comments, forums, and saw videos with so many positive on this darn gun, I finally went for it. Yeah, I was a little nervous, but I loved the feel and shootability of the M&Pc, so I trusted my gut. It feels SO DARN AWESOME in my hands it's unbelievable. I really love how slim it is... I can reach everything so easily. Even with the shorter magazine, I can still get all fingers wrapped around the side of it. I love the feel of the trigger! I just cannot wait to shoot it!!!! I expected racking the slide on this new gun to be much more difficult, but I must've done it 30 times last night without much issue. Guns always felt "fat" in my hands, but I feel like it just fits like it was made for me. Ok, I'll take a chill pill and settle down... or at least try!

Is it just me or do these two sound really happy?

So excited for both of them! You've done a good thing, AGirl. Organizing those give-aways was a big task.

So, so awesome. I'm so happy to see more women taking charge of their own safety. Just a few more women to go and the goblins won't know what hit them.

My wife carries a Shield also. She is spot on shooting it. Glad to see other people taking their own safety seriously.

For Mazie I just did a quick search on ammo for that .32 SP101 (good choice BTW they're great guns) The .327 round is a great self-defense round. The only issue you'll have is finding ammo to train with at your local shops.

I find the prices here to be great.

(.32 H&R Magnum will also fit the gun, but they don't have any in stock for a good training price)

Just remember to give the chambers a good cleaning with a bore brush after shooting the S&W Long as the cases are a bit shorter than the .327 so it'll leave a good bit of gunk in your chambers that isn't harmful if you scrub it)

Safe and fun shooting!

Great to see!!! Glad to see the reviews of the Shield are looking good. Single stack is a smaller grip, so easier to grip. Even as a guy, I had a hard time with the grips on XD's, Glocks, and even the M&P's. But the 1911's and Shield, and the Walther PPS's all fit my hand well.

Now if I could only find a Shield for a reasonable price. I'd prefer to handle it before buying, but with all the positive I'm hearing about it, I may just say forget it and get it ordered. :)

My local FFL guy is a friend and gives me a GREAT transfer price. :D
