Thomson center single shot pistols
#1
The I have been looking into these and I must say the interest me due the fact you can change out the barrels and shoot different calibers. My question is what I or anyone else would use it for, pre SHTF and post-SHTF? Assuming you have this pistol in your inventory, what specific task would you use it for, assuming you have all the other caliber barrels? Next question: what model would you get? The Thomson center Encore. (https://www.tcarms.com/firearms/interchangeable-platforms/encore-pro-hunter/platform). Or the Thomson center G2 Contender. (https://www.tcarms.com/firearms/interchangeable-platforms/g2-contender) I lean towards the contender, due to it’s .30-30 caliber option, but I also like the Encore for it’s .460 S&W caliber option. That leads me to my next question. How good or bad are the ballistics of .30-30 out of the shorter pistol barrel of the Thomson center pistols? The barrel length for the pistols is 12” to 14” inches.

Never fired one.  Seems like it would be a great hunting pistol though.

Ballistics on the 30-30 out of a Contender largely depends on the load used. From what I gather most people who shoot/handload it use 130 gr bullets at 1800-2000 FPS with the later being in the stout recoil category.
