Smith & Wesson 625JM: ‘A Jewel Of A Revolver’





” The quality of the Smith & Wesson 625JM is outstanding. It shows the years Smith & Wesson has had to perfect revolver making. It’s built on Smith & Wesson’s “N” frame, a large frame design that adds durability and longevity.  The revolver weighs in at 40 ounces unloaded, has an overall length of 9.38 inches, and a 0.08mm feeler gauge barely fits between the cylinder and the forcing cone.

The stainless steel has a nice silky satin bead blasted finish. On the barrel it sports a gold bead front sight. And it has Jerry’s “Bang” grips, his initials and a lightning bolt on the side of both the frame and grips.”


Taurus Judge: Public Defender 4510 .45LC/.410 (2.5” bore)




” Taurus advertises the Public Defender as a small frame revolver and I can understand this theory. In reality, the snub-nosed hand cannon packs quite a punch. The barrel and handle are scaled down in comparison to the original Judge, and the hammer is a bit smaller.  Perhaps the smaller hammer prevents it from snagging when drawn, but the Public Defender is still a Judge at heart.”

General Specs:

  • Capacity: 5
  • Weight: 28.2 oz
  • Barrel Length: 2.5”
  • Action: DA/SA
  • Front Sight: Red Fiber Optic Fixed
  • Length: 9.5”


‘Carrying a Gun Saved My Life’: Meet Ryan Moore

” On December 11, 2010, in Conyers, GA, 22-year-old Ryan Moore was at a friend’s house for an evening of leisure. He borrowed a friend’s car to drive to the nearby grocery store, where his handgun saved his life. I interviewed Ryan Moore over e-mail about that evening.

What happened that night at the Ingles (grocery store) parking lot?

I had parked near the front of the store. A man approached as I was about to get out, asking if I had some spare money he could use for gas. After replying I didn’t have any cash, he proceeded to walk away. As I was watching him leave, I then stepped out of the vehicle and was grabbed from behind by a man who put a knife to my neck. The first man then came back and demanded my keys and wallet.

How much time did you have to react?

It took a few seconds for me to realize what was happening. Once it dawned on me, I made the decision to fight back.”
