    They will lower the standards to fill the positions. It's kind of telling what type of person they wanted in the original requirements “Carry a firearm and be willing to use deadly force, if necessary.” That requirement has since been removed. ...

    Pics of the headstamp and side view would be helpful. The 0.735" is 0.163" shorter than a 45 ACP (0.898"). The only 45 cal. case that I am aware of that is that short is the British .450 Adams.

    I have both and I much prefer the 686's. That being said most of my S&W's are pre-1993. I do own several of ECM barreled Smiths and I have no issues with them for cast. With the factory stock Ruger or S&W triggers its luck of the draw. Once you...

    For the firearm/ammunition combination I don't agree. Once you add the shooter to the mix it becomes much more true. More recoil requires better form to shoot well. The M-14 I used in service rifle competition was much less tolerant of form...
