Today, April 15, is Buy A Gun Day, a tradition going back at least eight years or so.
If you read this blog much, you’ll note that it looks an awful lot like my .38 Super Witness. That’s because it is my .38 Super Witness – mostly. I bought a .40 S&W conversion kit for it, plus six spare magazines (for a total of seven). The conversion kit I bought direct from European American Armory. The magazines I bought from U.S. Citizen. I also bought 1,000 pieces of once-fired brass and 1,000 Berry’s 180 grain HP plated bullets. I thought about buying a 10mm conversion, but the cost of brass decided it for me. .40 S&W is ubiquitous and cheap. 10mm, not so much. Everything’s here but the bullets. I may have to break down and buy some factory fodder for a test this weekend.
It looks like the .40 will be MUCH less picky about what it eats than the Super.
