Yes. Surface Area and Mass are as important as velocity; it’s like a triangle thingy.

Well, there’s that, and then there’s the whole “We were awake in physics class” thing. Some of us are more than just a pretty face.

One mention of American made Heritage 22 Revolvers (single 6) but price said $169. Maybe retail is $169 with a MAG Cylinder included with the 22LR Cylinder. However, Smoky Mtn Gun & Ammo (Sevierville) has a bunch on display for from $99.99 (4.5 inch) to $114.99 (6 inch) and even the dual Cylinder (MAG and Regular 22LR Cylinders) for I think I remember $139.99 (or at least  you can buy a MAG Cylinder for $30).

Might also note the TAURUS American Made 22LR Pistol (TX22)that  EVERYONE on U-Tube is raving about (buddy has one, shoots great) for as low as $259.99 (advertised at Smky Mtn Gun & AMMO recently) with a $50 rebate from Taurus. Gun comes with two 16 ROUND MAGS and Threaded Barrel (adapter included). I think 10 round MAGS are available, but have not seen one. 

I see the Taurus Spectrum (380) was mentioned above.  I did not know or remember made in America. I have one - paid $169 some months back (think end of 2018 or early 2019) and had $35 rebate from TAURUS. Now see them for $119 and $129 (BUD'S in Sevierville has a bunch in a case for $129).  I had to send mine back to TAURUS twice (they paid shipping) to get issues resolved (Fail To Fire and Lock Back when shooting). Seems great now as  last few times I have shot it ran reliably (thin 200 rounds are so). Finally with a new Recoil Spring, apparently new Striker, and repair of the spring on the Lock Back lever -  all seems OK. 

The PHOENIX 22 (mentioned earlier) and 25 Caliber (available) are American made and run in the $119 to $129 range with 3 inch barrel and one MAG. Can get a KIT that comes with a case, a 3 and 5 inch barrel, two MAGS (10 rounds), and some cleaning supplies in the case for like $180 to $200. My son and I bought the KIT together (shared cost - in his name) out the door in GA for $200.  Good shooting little gun with a few idiosyncrasies (two of those can be modified).

I bought a Taurus G2C 9mm brand new for $185. I know people love to hate Taurus, but I had heard great things about it so I bought one. 1000 rounds later and no issues or failures of any kind. I did replace the polymer guide rod and spring and put in a ss, but that's it. Absolutely love the gun..

I think made in Brazil. 

Heritage and TX22 are made in America, I think the Spectrum is also (not sure).

      It appears that Colt is making a new King Cobra model revolver. I saw an ad in Guns & Ammo magazine this past issue. Makes me giddy that they may reissue the Python and my fave...the Anaconda 😁

      I have 3 pistols chanbered in .357 Magum.  I have 3 rifles chambered in .357 Magnum.
      I want a .357 Magnum semi-auto.  I know, I know.  Why not get a 10mm?  Why not get a .40?  Because I reload .357, have a ton of .357 ammo and don't want to introduce another caliber.  I so eagerly want a .357 semi-auto carbine.
      If anyone else is interested in one of these conversions, please contact MechTech today and show your support.  They won't build a conversion unless you ask.  They are already doing conversions for other 1911s.  I want them to build an upper for the Coonan 1911.
       
      Please show your support by contacting MechTech today: https://mechtechsys.com/Contact/tabid/6648/Default.aspx
      After contacting them, please share this post to other gun blogs so the interest can spread.  I don't want to have to pay a gunsmith thousands of dollars to do this conversion for me.
       
      I wasn't quite sure whether to put this post in handguns or long guns forum.  Technically, it's both.
