This morning, I had the honor and pleasure of shooting with a 75-year-old army vet. A couple of years ago, Mr. Madden’s back went out on him, but good. As you can see from this video, his shooting—a former source of pride via a large collection of .45s—has gone South. Move the Divine Mr. M back a few feet, and he can’t hit the paper. He was shooting my Springfield XD-M 3.8 9mm. Recoil’s an issue but not the issue. Weight more. But a lighter gun wouldn’t necessarily eliminate the barrel wobble problem. So . . . what? What gun should he carry for self-defense—if any. What gun should he use for home defense?
