I’m a huge fan of Hornady Critical Duty,

Same here
Wife uses their Critical Defense in her .380 and both 9mm, and I use their XTPs in my .38 Special snubby. I've grown to like their stuff over the years, both factory loads and components.

Never tried the Critical Duty. Guess we'll have to give them a spin, too.

Gene, the Sig 365 is near the top of our list too. If my fiancé goes with the Sig, it will be in 9mm.

If recoil is an issue, I can reload 9mm down a bit for practice rounds. With the 9mm we could standardize on one self defense round for all our carry guns and that makes things simple. I use the 124 Gold Dots currently and have a bunch of factory ammo. Plus, I can buy the Gold Dot bullets and reload them.
Bride and I have similar caliber Sigs. and while I like having the same ammo, I worry that if one runs out of ammo, both will. I try to diversify a little with my other guns.

Hey Hunt4570, here are the "need work" stock pictures I promised. The duct tape is holding the ear off the side of the receiver that is broken off.

I may be interested in the RH thumbhole at the right price. I am kind of a thumbhole fan on the contender. And I can fix that other one and send it back if you would like.

I think we can work out something on that thumbhole stock. You do realize it hasn't been completed since it started out as a blank piece of wood! I would probably charge the same thing I charged Slowpoke Slim for that lefty stock, which was just shipping.
. I would appreciate the repair of the other one if you don't mind taking the time to fix it. I have a use for it right now, but the time to repair it is my issue. I don't get all my honey-do list done as it is, lol!
Send me a PM with your name, address and phone number and I will try to box it up first chance I get.

Shot the new CVA Wolf V2 today. It was pretty late, and only fired 5 shots, then figured I better clean up before dark. 100grs of Pyrodex powder, with Traditions TFP Jacket Hallow Points, 240grs. Still need to fine tune zero, but I noticed that even adjusting scope up 8 clicks (2" at 100/1" at 50 yards), impact wasn't moving up as much. Figure maybe fouling could be an issue?

I was surprised by the mild recoil with 100grs of powder. It's magnum rated (150gr powder), but my quick loader only goes upto 120grs. Don't plan to shoot magnum loads much, but I will probably try 150grs at some point.

I also picked up a brush, barrel mop, some bore blaster, pre soaked patches, and a pound of Triple 7 powder, and some Barnes Expander MZ 300gr bullets.
