Can anyone recommend a gun shop, driving distance from Coldwater that will let you rent handguns? I just want to shoot them before I buy them! Thanks for your replies!

Freedom firearms in battle creek rents guns. I believe its $10 for half an hour plus range time. But don't hold me on the price call first. The people their are always willing to help, and find the right gun for you.

Thanks, Battle Creek is do-able. I'm interested in the S&W Shield but would like to shoot it or a S&W with a similar action. I bought a Ruger lc9 a few months ago and I hate the trigger pull, so I don't want to make that mistake again!

How many rounds have you put through it? I heard reviews that it loosens up after a while. I'm also looking at getting 1.

In all seriousness, I've heard it called "the Ruger trigger job" where you sit down and dry fire the trigger about 5-10k times while watching a movie or football game.

I haven't heard of that. What I don't like is how long the trigger pull is and how it finally breaks. But I will give this a try.

Google it first to see what other guys have done and recommend. I have heard that repeated dry firing like that does wonders for the triggers in Redhawks and Blackhawks, not sure about their semi autos though. Might be a good idea to put a snap cap in the chamber or punch the primer out of an empty case and insert a chunk of pencil eraser into the pocket to soften the blow of the firing pin.

Silver Bullet in Wyoming Mi has rentals. You can shoot any gun, 10 rounds for ten buck. Or you can get several guns of the same caliber and a box of ammo. All on there indoor range.

Great place to test drive a gun.
