Re: I give up; Glock 19 for me.

now we can debate that awful S&W .40 cartridge. The .40 is an outstanding caliber, particularly when loaded heavy. The .40, born of the mighty 10mm, filled a very valid need back when the 9mm was determined to be inadequate by the FBI Ballistics Lab. That 9mm has finally evolved into adequate s...

Re: I give up; Glock 19 for me.

I have many carry guns and they all have a place in the rotation, but the g23 is my go to. I can remember a realization I had awhile back. I was having a discussion and said "If I'm ever forced to shoot to defend my life, I hope I brought my Glock that day"...and it hit me, I can bring my...

I give up; Glock 19 for me.

OEMs continue in their effort to build a better mousetrap, but for my needs I can find no carry gun ≥ to the Glock 19 (/23/32). I've bought many guns hoping that I could love them as much, but after the new wears off I always go back to my tested and trusted compact Glocks. The latest round involved...

Re: CCW shooting officer's attacker video

I realize there will always be exceptions and note that if I felt heavy 9mm was inadequate I would be carrying something larger. As I've stated in the past, all else being equal (shot placement, mental and physical condition of the threat, etc.), 9mm is not and will never be truly equal to .45. I'm ...

https://youtu.be/BEkgZyX2xng?t=1m29s Here is the best video I've found of the actual video of the shooting of the dude assaulting the police officer. As I understand it, it was 9mm. We have no way of knowing shot placement or type of bullet used, but it's at least a little disturbing to me that dude...

If this is as legit as it appears on the surface (as opposed to being an issue of he's a drug dealer and they were attempting to rob his drugs or something) then it's a win win win.

Easily explained:

Blued - Carry gun.
SS - Investment.

I buy a lot of good guns for simple investments that will be put in storage until the time is right; they're only going to increase in value.

Re: USPc 45 - SS?

I was slightly mistaken on what Mr. Jacobson said regarding the USPc - he states in this video that the compact models have a "potential trigger return problem". Listening to his argument, he seems to lack any reasoning behind his beliefs on most all guns. Can't get parts? Somebody should...

i like the HK45c better but now your looking at $2-300 more to get one. I already have an HK45cT and it's a great gun (I mean...it's an HK). I could just swap out the elephant foot magazine for the short-mag but actually prefer the grip of the USPc over the HK45c. The HK45 has the grip texture simi...
