Its tough to beat a warm, sunny Saturday at the range with new toys. My two new acquisitions; a S&W M66-3 .357 Magnum and a Glock 26 9mm. Old school meets new school, side-by-side. The Glock is a better overall carry gun; its lighter, more compact, and it has 10+1 capacity. It can also use Glock 19 mags, which hold 15 rounds instead of 10. It is a piece of precision Austrian engineering made of space-age polymer. Its accurate, reliable, and it just plain works. The Smith and Wesson is a classic stainless-steel six-shooter. You can plink all day with cheap and easy .38 Specials, then stoke it full of 158 gr. .357 Magnum hollowpoints for defense against predators of the 2 or 4-legged variety. The recoil and muzzle blast are impressive. It is a mean looking, bad-assed gun. If guns were cars then the Glock would be a BMW 325i, while the Smith and Wesson would be a 1969 Camaro with a built 327, a 4 barrel carb, and cherry bomb mufflers.
