    I prefer consistency. So for the model 41 it is RWS Target pistol and the rifles get RWS Target Rifle. I can't ever remember having a "dud" with RWS and they shoot the same every time.
    Current collection: Too many according to the wife...

    When i got my dedicated AR-15 .22 upper I did a review and tested different types of ammo.. The mini-mags gave the best accuracy and i was quite disappointed with the Stingers.. The Federal bulk did OK, and is great for plinking with the AR.. With my P229 classic im still using the mini-mags and havent tried the federal bulk yet.. BUT it hated the Winchester 333's..

    Do you carry a 41 loaded with RWS Target for self defense? Neither do I.

    No offense taken. I have several guns, and most of the time I carry a Glock 19 (9mm) and I also have a smaller Taruas TCP (.380) But sometimes I carry the .22 if I'm wearing clothing that makes the Glock too difficult to conceal and if my wife has taken the .380 with her. Its pretty rare, about once a month or so. I always look at it from the perspective that the .22 is way better than nothing at all, or a Glock that I can't conceal. But I still am not sure the best ammo for it.

    As for your second question - Yes, my username stems from Doctor Who. I've used the same username from back in the 1980's logging into Commodore 64 BBS and have never changed it.

    That sounds like fun. I have a High Standard 'The Victor' target pistol, and I remember having a very hard time deciding between it and a S&W 41. I think it came down to liking the grip better on the HS.

    I think they mention not to use it in their PC model. The other models are ok from what I understand.
