I'm planning to run a couple of hundred rounds through the new XD tomorrow. That Baby Eagle Compact will have to wait.
    Good choice! Wow, the Rami P is going for $479 here....Have fun with the XD

    Yep, I'm convinced now I just live in an area where the prices are high.. Even used, that 3" XD9 would be $400+ .. Wouldn't put it passed them to be closer to $500. Looks like I gotta order through an FFL.

    I'm in the same boat here, except that I found the Stoeger here before they raised the price $80 a week later (somehow I got it less than the other dealers COST here...just lucky I guess) If you're a freak like me, I'm always looking for the dime in the rough online, and it happens every once in a while, kinda like my XD Just order through an FFL. The one I use costs $25, which is average I believe. It went really smooth, and I'm sure I will do it again. I can understand trying to support a local dealer, but saving $100+ is the route I go. If the dealer can't understand that, then I can take my business somewhere else. Shooting about 500 rounds a week right now, so I don't think they want that Just my .02

    hehehe.. Indeed, considering I've already bought 1/4th of a gun just in using the range.. surely they can do some good for me considering what they're going to get on the back-end with me plinking holes in paper and taking courses.

    Yea, you would think so. I don't know about your area, but that doesn't happen much here. Although, the places here are more of large sporting goods stores with guns and the ranges are totally seperate businesses in themselves. I'm guessing that the online prices even with shipping and transfer fees are still going to be considerably lower, although it doesn't hurt to try at your local business

    Only way NOT to find out if they can work with their online competition is NOT to ask, I suppose.

    I live in Central PA but work towards Philadelphia. There is a shop near my office that purchases bulk orders from manufacturers of some "different" types of guns. The shop is Tanner's Gun Shop. He is also annually one of the top 10 sellers on Gunbroker.com. He bought a leftover bulk order of Rami's and discounted the heck out of them. He sells a lot of FN's as well and he recently took in a load of used HK P7 PSP 9MMs. GREAT PRICES !!!

    well. it looks as if my hardware store (which is less than 5 minutes away!) is a FFL who can order just about anything and has the cheapest prices around - who knew!! so i plan on ordering a baby eagle 9mm compact polymer when my tax return gets here... i will have a range report and comments to follow.

    ps held another at gander mountain last weekend, a .40 steel semi compact.... there is just something about 'em i really like!

    pps i also have a ruger lcp on order - wonder when that will arrive?

    ok.. i was this close --><-- to buying the baby eagle. when i noticed something... my finger was tip toeing to reach the trigger. the grip is awesome, comfortable and smallish, however the trigger reach is LONG. holy cow. i guess i can chalk it up to novice oversight but now i am at square one again.

    any suggestions here for a small 9mm semi auto with a short trigger reach?

    the trigger reach on my p95 is 2.75 in. which is perfect.

    IWI Baby Desert Eagle 9mm polymer - trigger problems

    First of all, this is not a review as much as what I think is my obligation to share something I would want to know before buying the latest generation of Jericho aka Baby Desert Eagle polymer pistols. As background, I own 18 handguns and shoot between 300-500 rd's a week. I take care of all my guns. Ok, i'll get to the point.

    I have bragged on these weapons for the last 3 years, and considered my 40 my go-to firearm for a few common reasons I'll mention later. But after buying the 9mm version so I could lower my cost of shooting, the trigger assemblies both broke within a 6 week period. I don't know the component parts that broke, but the 40 trigger didn't reset after a shot, and a very small circular piece of metal fell out. The 9mm was a different issue, where it became loose from side to side. The undeniable positives about the guns: eats any ammo, as accurate as any, glock-speed breakdown, good looks, good grips, and nice balance.

    Magnum Research fixed both within 30 days and at no cost even though the 40 was 3 years old. Even so, I had to find a replacement with a tried & true history of reliability and durability. The all steel versions may have this, but I would wait for the polymer series to develop a similar track record. I decided on the H&K P30's (P30L 9mm, P30 40 LEM) and a Sig P228.
