Was out mtn biking after work today and found an area that was used by shooters too stupid to police their own brass.  They also left a bunch of shit (targets) laying around.  Jerks.

Anyway, I did my part by picking up all the 45, 357, and 30-06 I could find and properly removing it.  So since I don't have anything to use the 45 brass with I guess its time to shop for a 625.

Has anyone spent much time behind the trigger of the 325 models?  I wonder if the recoil is terrible?  I realize they are not range guns.

Scored another pile today, the dipsticks even left the boxes.  They ventilated an oversized gorilla doll.

Someone must have a 325??

I have a 625-10 which is a little smaller and lighter than the 325. I have no problem with the recoil even with egale secret service grips. I will say it kicks less than an airweight j frame, however recoil is a relative thing.

I have a 625 Performance Center model and love it.  Its worth it to get a regular model, since the 325 tends to get bad reviews for controllability.

I've got a 325PD and really enjoy it.  It is one of my most-used carry guns.  Recoil is not bad at all with it, and it carries as if it were a J frame.

Try to find yourself an older 625.  I have a 625-3 and it's awesome!  The 625 is one of S&W's best models ever.

I got dies and some bullets today. Laser cast 230's and some Hornady xtp's.  I use HS-6 for many of my pistol loads and really like it, should work fine with 45 although the listed velocities aren't as high as some other powders I saw in the chart there.

Have a while to decide.  I am kind of in between states for residency....  The new springer XD45acp looks nice.  But if I found a lightly used 625 I would jump on it!

The j-frame recoil comparison is good to know.  I think I will leave the 325 out unless I find a screamin good deal.  

I don't have a 1911, which is just wrong, even if its just such a part of gun technology/history.

625's are a great, fun gun.
I love mine, probablty never get rid of it.
