One small correction. The M-8 Scabbard came out in early 1944. My father landed on D-Day and he carried an M3 Trench knife in an M8 scabbard. Also...
I will not buy a gun with the lock if given a choice, so I'd hunt for a good used M-19.
Actually, in some states the Sheriff's Office can issue an EPO that is effective only until the Courts open. Often these are issued on weekends.
I reload all my practice ammo as well as some SD ammo.My carry ammo is Remington 158 LSWC-HP +P and/or Speer 135 Gold dots.
Years ago I had similar issues with 125/130 gr Lead bullets which eventually lead me to 148 DEWC under 3 gr Bullseye for plinking. Very accurate...
I'll add a few
