Turned out to be a favorite

A year or so ago my shooting buddy introduced me to the Coonan 357. The 357 was a lot larger that the typical 1911 and I was impressed. I sensed he was not all that happy with the Coonan, but just could not figure out why.
Well time passed and he put 500+ rounds thru it without a hiccup.
Then one day he mentioned selling it and I pounced on his offer to sell. He priced it lower than I expected and I bought it.
He favors black guns and soon after the sale he ordered himself a black Coonan.
I shoot 125 grain reloads in it that reduces the recoil. My accuracy is so good it impressed me. So, I wanted to share the you tube video with you folks, so here you are.

Thanks for sharing & I'm glad your happy with it.

I don't shoot .357, but I would have to reload for it or I couldn't afford it.

Gotta love Jerry! Thought you said it was large, it looked like a compact in his hands.

Cool pistol, glad you like it!

Jerry has the arms for controlling a gun with recoil which I lack.
I can however put six rounds in a target at 20 feet in 4-6 seconds with the reloads.
A bear load would change things I bet.
