Hello. If you'd like to see a "range report" type article on a particular handgun, let me know. I do not have all handguns out there, but will do the request if possible or will do one on a handgun as close to the model specified as I can.

As I can, I'll start moving some that have been previously done in the "Test Bed" area. There will not be pictures, but hopefully the links to my album containing the picture in question will handle the visual end of the reports.

As to the "stopping power" of ammunition used, there are folks here more qualified than I to recommend. I do try and buy some of the more popular JHPs and shoot them in the gun, but that's mainly to provide an idea as to intrinsic accuracy and feed reliability, felt recoil, etc. The "scientific mud expansion tests" are there, but as noted, included just for fun.

Again, I don't own every model out there, but will do what I can.

Best.

Stephen, having read many of your very well done reports--I can't believe you do not have one of each;)!

Thanks, Stephen. I've read several of your reports before and found them to be very helpful. They'll be a tremendous resource.

Know what you don't. Ask those that do.

Hello, and thanks. I'll be doing more and will work at some specifically for this site, too.

Stephen...

I gotta comment too, those are some really great reports you are giving us. We really appreciate your work. Only problem is you might inspire some of use to lighten our wallets, but hey it's only money . Thank you...

Hello, and thank you. I know what you mean about "light wallet syndrome." I really don't think there is a cure for the handgun lover. My problem is that I like them all...well, almost.

Stephen I hear you, big time...

I'm not even allowed to make runs to the hardware store alone anymore, cause last time I ended up with a Springfield XD, and the wrong screw ...

Thanks again...

Hello, Evan, and THANKS. I'll sure give you the word as early as I can. Any reports using ammo essentially secured by you via your contacts would be exclusive to your site.

Thank you again.

Best.
