Although I have gotten slack lately, for about three years my nightly routine consisted of dry-firing the gun fifty times with each hand as rapidly as possible before trying to hold the laser dot steady on target through normal trigger pulls. You'd be surprised how hard that is if you've never tried it, especially on a stock J-frame with a 12-pound-plus double action trigger pull. It starts out "OneTwoThreeFour," but ends up "Forty... eight... Fort... ty... ni... ine..." and your forearm muscles ache. As a result of all that dry-firing, the bearing surfaces in the little gun are mirror bright; I was especially impressed with the trigger lever, since on the guns with cheesy Metal-Injection-Molded small parts the ends of the trigger lever look like little spiked balls under a loupe when new, and these looked almost chromed.

How do you like the 432PD Tam?Well, I feel no particular affection towards it, being a MIM-and-zit gun, but it works. I've just never been as accurate in rapid fire with heavy-bullet +P .38 loads in an Airweight J as I'd like, and given a choice between 5 shots of standard pressure light bullet loads in .38 or six shots of 100gr .32 Mag, I opted for the latter... (A 100gr .32 has much greater sectional density than a 110- or 125gr .38; I just don't trust a flying dime to carry through to the vitals.)
