Long time Ruger owner. Just traded a 20 + year old .357 SP101 for a new 9mm moonclip LCR 5456. Also have a MK II .22lr for plinking.

Hope to learn a lot here.

I love the gun but the moon clips are clumsy compared to a real speed loader. I can live with that when you compare 9mm ammo costs compared to .38 / .357 for the SP101 I traded in.

I moved from CA to Washington a few years ago. And I'm moving to Idaho at the end of the summer. I went from not-free to free and will be going to even freer!
I feel your pain

Since you like the 1911 platform, if you ever get a chance try the 38 Super. Less recoil, higher capacity and flatter shooting.:)

Thanks. I have never tried a .38 Super although I'd like too. I believe it's the caliber of choice and largest allowed in Mexico legally, that is. Unfortunately my range doesn't have one for rent.

As for capacity, my old .45 acp Para 1911's have 12 + 1 & 14 + 1 double stacks, (all CA pre-ban of course).

Hi Lex, Welcome and thanks for joining in on the fun.
What do you think of the Bersa .380? I've been considering letting :quote: my wife get 'her' one. LOL.

There was a loader for moon clips awhile back, worked like a speed loader- saw a guy in a competition using them- worked well from what I remember.

Thanks for the welcome. As for the Bersa, mine is the "FireStorm .380" model. the only Bersa on the CA DOJ approved list. http://certguns.doj.ca.gov/

I dumped a totally unreliable .380 Walther PPK/S in favor of the Bersa. Unlike the Walther, absolutely no FF or FE issues with a wide variety of ammo types and brands. Plus, you can't beat the price. It's everything the PPK should have been.

I highly recommend it. :)
