    S&W Revolver 9 or 45 for IPSC

    So i currently run a 625 in 45 and have always enjoyed it, only mod is on the trigger.
    Starting to wonder about the 9mm if its something i should convert to?? or stay with what i have and maybe practice reloads more to help the 2 shot difference. Any thoughts from fellow IPSC revolver users.

    Why?

    I find 9 an horrible little barky round. 45 is much more comfortable to shoot


    If you're wanting to improve splits then a)work the action and b) lots of practice.

    To help you solve this dilemma I will introduce you to low level Rushy Logic. I can count to nine much quicker than I can count to forty five. It is therefore the case that the nine must be quicker for your IPSC Pistol shooting. Simple really.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    The few guys that I know running Revo in ipsc are all ditching the 45s as they cant be competitive. 8 Round cylinder vs 6.

    Same reason that the majority of Classic shooters run 9mm, two extra rounds in every mag can make or break your match.
