I've had a Shield for a couple of years, and I'd rather have the EZ model, Racking the slide on the standard model Shield does require significant hand strength. Otherwise, it's a nice handgun.

The fact that they brought out the EZ model a year or so after the original model came out tells me that I'm not alone in this.

I'm tired of trying to find the right carry-gun. After months of trying them all out, I finally just started carrying a dried salami. It only helped mildly with self defense, but Im now getting dates left and right.

Carry a stick of Hormel pepperoni and munch it throughout the day. Your breath will be so powerful no one will mess with you.

"Is that a stick of pepperoni in your pocket, or are you pissed to see me?"

I bought a blackpowder revolver from Grandpa's estate a few years back and still haven't fired it...got caps, got balls, but don't have the correct powder.

In my internet searches, I found a guy selling DIY paper cartridge kits...something that one could, hypothetically, make up a box of 30 or so cartridges for a good, dirty range day. My thoughts are that this would sort of pre-load all the time into time spent building the paper cartridges because I can remember watching Gramps loading this pistol up at the kitchen table, taking 4-5 minutes per cylinder (or a half hour to load the entire gun). Or, if I'm paying for a half hour of range time, I want to get more than 6 shots in, ya dig?

That's very pretty and looks to be in great shape. Might still be worth having a good smith look at it. They might be able to advise on ammo, too.
I brought it into a shop and the guy said it looked good...but he was just the counter guy and not an actual gunsmith. He also said they made .36 caliber Pyrodex pellets, which I've never been able to find.
