My last HK was surprisingly good.

http://www.springfield-armory.com/prod-xdpstl-long.shtml and I order it a .357 with the green stock.

WMJ you better be right and if not I would hate to be you.

Remember I own one of these.

I order this scope the other day because the one on my 82 is too much overkill.

Merry Christmas to my self.

But I don't like Glocks because every one i put through my test has always jammed. I would think they would have better quality.

Thanks guys. And I do want to gold plate a gun now.

Sorry I couldn't come in on this one sooner, but I do agree with the XD comment, they're wonderful guns, and they're in the running, and currently leading the competition for the replacement for the standard US military sidearm, replacing the Berretta M92 9-mm. I, for one will be happy to see a .45-caliber weapon going back into service with our military. (for one, they should have never stopped using the M1911A1)

M1911A1

The one I had was about as accurate as a smooth bore musket. Not really the greatest pistol.

It was pretty new because the paint was yet to be scratched off the clip. at 60+ yards it was pretty crappy. Not consistent at all.

Nice to see you choose the 357! An interesting side note to your glock jamming.... When I was in LA had a great conversation with a couple of LAPD bomb squad guys and one of them was real old school and still carried a 38 revolver, with speed loaders. I Asked him why he didnt carry and auto and he said cause he had a glock jam on him in a gunfight and that the revolver was reliable and he didnt need the extra few bullets with it. LOL.

I love glocks... granted that's only based on firing my buddy's 9mm

on about a half dozen occassions, still from what I've heard they

are great firearms and can be dropped in sand and will stil fire.

everyone is so very POLARIZED on the Glock issue. WTF is the deal?

I'm not a huge fan of GLOCK, sure, they're kinda inovative with the polymer construction, but everyone is going that route now and you can easily buy a MUCH better gun than a GLOCK for the money. If I had the bills right now i'd be buying a Springfield Armory 5" Tactical model XD45. Then I'd add a set of good Trijicon dayglow sights to it and call it a day, maybe do a trigger job, but the six XD's I've shot as of so far didn't really need them.

I wish I knew about firearms as much as I know about cars.

While in a very cool used book store the other day I bought

an 830 page, hardcover book from 1968 that is quite nice.

It seems to be one of the most thorough histories of the

modern firearm (hadngun) ever conceived. it looks like one

of those medium sized bibles. :D

I don't know too much about real guns, but I have a BB MK 23 myself. It's the same size as the real thing, and that thing is huge. It's crazy accurate from what I heard about the real counterpart, but it's only good if you have big hands. It's as big as a DEagle.

Well for ease of use and out of the box accuracy I love my Smith and Wessin .40 and at only $400 you can't go wrong. More power than my service Beretta and just as easy to control, my dad did buy me a .44 629 with a 6 inch barrel but I haven't been able to shoot it yet.

I know so much about guns that i don't care anymore. I have like 8 gun safes in my house then i have another 25 of them in a pole barn up north.

mark 23 isn't that big. Carried one for about 3 years of my life.

Revolvers are fun to shoot and have but aren't the greatest for hand to hand combat. I just how one of those so called terrorists just F's with me one day.

The Beretta 9mm thats issued to me is ok. it gets the job done but its rather, blah.

Thats why i carry around my own guns. I will take my Browning High powers any day even tho its 9mm.

68: any gun can be dropped in sand or water and still fire. One a few guns pass the Brake cleaner test. Take it apart degrease it. shoot at least 200 shells non-stop. the Glock failed every time.

Looks like I might follow Cap on this one....

I'm thinking pistol too, but something easy to use...

It's more for the "just in case", I plan on practicing with it....

if you are good, you only need 6 bullets and then there are always speed loaders..... besides the ability to shoot thru windshileds and other barriers is invalueable.

We have some old shotguns and a rifle (from late 1890s and early 1900s) in my parents' closet. My dad says there's bullets somewhere for them, but I've never seen them. It would be interesting to fire them and see what they're like.

Aforementioned book about Pistols & Revolvers. I will not be completely ignorant for much longer.

Definitely the coolest addition to my book collection that is not car related. :metal:

I'm a Beretta and Kimber man myself. If you can find a Inox 92 FS or 96 FS Beretta those are beautiful guns that are reliable as well. I recently also acquired a Beretta PX4 and it is a dream to shoot.

On the Kimber side, well ya can't go wrong since they've done away with the external extractors. Springfield also makes good 1911's too.

Also, don't rule out Sig Sauer, they make fine pistols as well.

seriously look at a Ruger .22

Its perfect for what you want to do with it. But I know .22 seems weak. Guns are a personal thing tho. I don't think you will need a .44 dirty harry gun.

I will have to shoot the Springfield before i will judge it tho. If you want a Glock go for it! Its just that i know for a fact you wont be shooting 800 rounds a year with it. unless... your practicing for something criminal. :scratchchin:

Hmm...could be a idea...

I'm not a wuss, but I want to make sure it is easy to handle. (and somehwhat light)

I don't want to end up shooting myself, and other stuff.

I see we are going to need them if you want to go downtown and gamble.... :rolleyes:
