Milo’s Pic Of The Week

This whole last week Milo took some time off to get in a bit of quality range time with the Smith & Wesson 640-1 Pro Series.

What can Milo say but “Pretty Bird” he absolutely loves this pistol, this work of Smith & Wesson’s Performance Center high art. Milo loves that it shoots +P ammo non-stop, and with the cut out cylinder Milo uses moon clips for his quick tactical (or tacticlaw in Milo’s case) reloads. The Smith & Wesson Performance Center 640-1 Pro Series is meant for easy carry, easy concealment, and easy target acquisition due to the Trijicon night sights Smith & Wesson saw fit to include.

I’m not sure Milo’ even ate any crackers or peanuts this whole last week. Milo and Mike have been at it for days and they both have this pistol. If you are more of a sparrow than a parrot and don’t want to shoot full house .357cal you can also shoot .38 special which greatly reduces felt recoil and knocks the edges off some of the bark.

 

Smith & Wesson Specs from their page below:

OVERVIEW

Smith & Wesson J-Frame revolvers have had your back since 1950.  These small revolvers were designed to fire a full power round and are as simple and easy to use as they are reliable.  Available in various calibers and with three diverse hammer designs, it is no surprise that the Smith & Wesson J-Frame has become the most popular, small-frame, defense revolver on the market.

In 1995, Smith & Wesson introduced the Model 640, the first J frame revolver chambered in the powerful .357 Magnum round.   Based on Model 40 Centennial, the Model 640 is a small frame concealed hammer revolver that packs a full-sized punch.  The Model 640 Pro Series integrates the time-tested features of the original with modern advancements and competition specifications and features.

Features
• Stainless steel frame, barrel, and cylinder
• Front and Rear Dovetail Tritium Night Sight
• Concealed hammer
• Cylinder cut for moon clips
• Rated for Continuous +P Use

A moon clip is a ring-shaped or star-shaped piece of metal designed to hold multiple cartridges together as a unit for simultaneous insertion and extraction from a revolver cylinder.

Milo’s Pick Of The Week Remington 700 Lapua Magnum

The first week of February always has Milo preoccupied with setting up a long range shooter for when the weather breaks here in the Northwest. Milo’s preoccupation this season is with the Remington 700 action chambered in .338 Lapua Magnum. While other lame ducks are still trying to hop up the old rifle with a wildcat cartridge Milo takes the off the shelf approach and goes with Remington’s tried and true Model 700.

To say Remington’s 700 action is robust would be an understatement. The Gun Room Inc. is Remington’s Pro Custom Shop in Portland, we get the really really good rifles here in the calibers Milo demands for his bird brained shooting drills.

Milo used to shoot the Barrett .50 cal but now prefers the .338 Lapua Magnum because the bullets are easier to carry and easier to come by.

To get your own 338 Lapua Magnum come see Milo at The Gun Room Inc., call us today (503)777-3931 and get that extra special model made just for you.

Sig Sauer Model 320 Modular System Adopted By US Army

When the dust settled from the highly competitive contract there were only two firearms makers left; Glock and Sig Sauer. During the 2017 Shot Show it was announced albeit a surprise to the competitors that Glock had been dropped like Beretta, and FN leaving only Sig Sauer Standing.

To celebrate Sig Sauer broke out the bubbly and passed flutes around for a celebratory toast to those present. Breaking the 30 year reign of Beretta and it’s 9mm platform made people cheer out loud, especially service members like this one who had a strong distaste for the aging model.

Most of the current military and Iraq / Afghanistan veterans I’ve talked to have regarded the Army’s decision as legit and definitely couldn’t come too soon. Some of us old timers never dropped the 1911 as a mission pistol and some of the branches are bringing it back again.

“By maximizing full and open competition across our industry partners, we have optimized private sector advancements in handguns, ammunition and magazines, and the end result will ensure a decidedly superior weapon system for our warfighters,” Army Acquisition Executive Steffanie Easter said said in a press release.

In their statements, Army and Sig officials didn’t specify what caliber the new Sig Sauer pistol will be.

Sig touts the P320 model product as “modular” and “adaptable,” with interchangeable grips, multiple sizes and calibers that can be converted between 9mm, .357SIG and .40S&W. “From calibers, to pistol size, to the grip fit best suited for the shooter, the P320 is the most adaptable pistol available today,” the company says in promotional materials.

Lowa Boots

For over 90+ years, LOWA BOOTS have been the finest outdoor boots in the world for hunters, climbers, mountaineers, hikers,etc.. Their attention to detail has earned a reputation for building the world’s most comfortable and durable boots since 1923.

The Gun Room Inc. is known for hunting and fine firearms and carries Lowa boots for edging those mountains and hills where some of the toughest hunts happen. When you are working thru some knock down or a cut unit you know that the wrong boot means swollen ankles and feet and usually buying another pair of boots after an unsuccessful hunt.

This writer has been using the same pair of Lowa boots himself for about a decade now and can’t even fathom how he did it without them. After getting out of the military, I thought that the best boot for these missions was the tried and true paratrooper boot, until a high country big game hunt with a friend wearing Lowa boots that is. Lets just say all of the smack talking about him not serving and blah blah blah this and that banter meant I ate crow for supper that night. One of the toughest parts of the hunt was a very high and steep ridge where you had to cut every step of the way with your boots side hilling to a ledge where we could take a break and glass for the meal of the day. Suffice it to say my military tough boots came apart and I had to go back empty-handed, sore, cold and wet.

Fast forward a decade and I still have my first pair of Lowa Boots for my big game hunts and now I also have the tactical boots Lowa makes for my training evolutions.  The foot wear kings at Lowa have made shoes and boots for just about any activity outdoors and have done it better than everyone else. Once you try Lowa Boots you’ll never look back unless you need to find your friend.

Lowa Boots are in stock for men and women at The Gun Room Inc. on SE Foster Rd. in Portland Oregon.

Give them a call (503)777-3931 or better yet stop by and see their Lowa Boots for yourself.
