38 Special. Author’s favorite revolver, powder-smeared here from recent use: 1989 series 4-inch S&W Model 625, tuned by Al Greco. The renaissance of the concept didn’t come until the half-moon clip had given way to the full moon style. This created the fastest possible reload of the revolver. The lineal descendant of the 1917, S&W’s stainless Model 625, was the gun Jerry Miculek used to set the world record. 99 seconds. No, that’s not a misprint. You can probably find it on video on YouTube, and see for yourself.
40 caliber and the striker-fired Glock, S&W M&P, and Springfield Armory XD. 41 Magnum S&W Model 57 customized for bowling pin shooting by the late, great Fred Sadowski of “300 Gunsmith Service” in Denver, CO. 41 Magnum full load recoil dramatically, and C-More electronic red dot sight allows fast target acquisition. Grips by Hogue. From the Blake Huff collection. Other forces were simultaneously at work. In 1963, Lee Jurras had opened his pioneering Super Vel ammunition factory in Shelbyville, Indiana.
41 Magnum and 10mm Auto are “cult calibers,” kept alive by serious shooters with an enthusiastic devotion to their particular ballistic niche. 41, rather like the fine old Model 58 service revolver with fixed sights discontinued in the late ‘70s. Personally, to better take advantage of the wide range of load options, I’d go with Smith’s sweet Model 657 Mountain Gun with adjustable sights and gracefully tapered 4-inch barrel. The 10mm Auto is readily available in 1911s such as the Kimber, and the EAA Witness, today’s descendant of the original Bren Ten design, but my personal choice to start with 10mm would be the rugged 16-shot Glock 20.
