    Thanks nitesite...

    Yea, I love the balance on the 4" N frame...and it packs nice in it's dedicated S&W leather holster.

    And that's awesome story on that Model 10 M&P...not to mention that rack of Smiffs is just incredible !!

    M&P 40 polymer frame damage

    The other day I was putting some of my guns back in my safe. I wasn't paying attention and knocked my M&P 40 of the shelf and it hit the steel receiver of my FAL and the edge of the safe. I was lucky that only the frame came into contact with the steel of my other rfiles otherwise more stuff would have been damaged. On the way down the pistol got a nice size gouge out of the picatinny rail from hitting my FAL (all other guns were fine or maybe a scuff mark here or there; nothing bad). I am anal about my guns and understand they are tools but since I am not fighting for my life I like to keep my guns clean and in good condition. Here is the gouge.

    I patched it and wanted to get all your opinions on the patch job. I mixed stom JB weld (for steel) mixed in graphite powder to get the color to match and applied black engine enamel to resist high temp and chemicals. I filled it, filed it, and sanded it to fit. Here is it after the patch.

    The only way you can notice the patch is if you no what you are looking for and have the light angled at the right angle to catch the smoother surface of the patch vs the textured finish of the polymer frame.

    What do you all think? It seems tough after it cured and I don't think it will come undone since it is on a none load bearing surface.

    Thanks! the color isn' perfect but it is close enough where if you did happen to notice it, you wouldn't think much about it.

    Thank you both very much,24 pellets at that distance will do what needs to be done in a defensive situation inside or outside the home.

    Some of the folks around my way that have seen the little pocket shotgun have expressed wanting to pick one up for themselves.

    Sweet KW!

    You get a new barrel for the M&P22 or does it use a thread-on adapter like the Walther?

    It's a gemtech adaptor, they come threaded for an adaptor like the Walter. I am still waiting for my form 1 to be approved for my suppressor I am going to make at work :twisted:

    Very nice!

    I've got one of the gemtechs on my P22 for use with my YHM 22 Mite. Can't beat makin your own can. $200 tax stamp plus cost of materials sure beats the hell outta droppin the cash for the can on top of it. I'm lookin forward to seeing the finished product...
