    Just so long as he doesn't start talking about kiestering a man cannon...

    But seriously, LAGuy, your threads kind of read like Green Eggs and Ham...

    Could you would you keep it chambered in a box?
    Could you would you keep it chambered on a train?
    Could you would you keep it chambered in the rain?
    In the dark? Could you would you keep it chambered in the dark???

    Well thanks for the support, I just feel this is a "go-to" place for all my questions that I have. I'm not going to lie, I've recently got into the whole hand gun biz. And this came at the 31, thanks again.

    Re: Is it too early to buy my second man cannon only after a little over a month?

    You're welcome, to be honest I would not have placed you @ 31. Some of your word usage comes across as juvenile and not very serious...like "man cannon" etc. That's why you're getting a little grief. Once you start getting a little more knowlege under your belt and get used to how to better communicate via the forum media you'll be taken a little more seriously.

    Regarding gun purchases, this is a weird time. You might end up spending more, or it might be a good time to buy something else before you can't.... At this time I would probably advise you to keep getting better acquainted with your gun and think about what you like and don't like about it and go from there.

    Spend the gun money on ammo and some professional training.

Is it too early for me to get another one?

    What would you get if you were in my shoes? I think sigs are a little more than I wanna spend. I'm looking to spend around $500 which I'm pretty sure I can get the S&W or Glock.

    Also, I do like the extra safety on my beretta, which I know the Glock doesnt have.

    What do you guys think, any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance!
    As someone else suggested, check out the Ruger SR40 or SR40c (compact). Current prices around me (WI) are about $409-$429. Ruger has come out with the new SR45 (.45 cal) and as soon as one shows up locally, it'll be in my stable.

    They look pretty awesome,

    Ruger® SR40® Centerfire Pistol Models

    Whats the difference between the allow steel and the stainless? they're the same price. Does this one have a safety? Looks pretty nice!

    Check out the Ruger website and review the specs for each pistol in which you have an interest. Then, go online to Youtube where you'll find ample information on just about any commercially available firearm. Follow that up with a visit to your LGS to check out the weapons you're most interested in. Good luck - and take the advice previously given regarding firearms training and safety courses,

    would the training classes be better in the morning, or in the evening?.. should i eat before the classes? should i avoid eating turkey ? i have heard turkey might make you tired. wouldn't want to fall asleep , maybe i should take the morning classes, shouldn't be a problem having eggs for breakfast. wonder if they should be scrambled eggs or over easy?
    Just teasing you mr LaGuy,, buy your guns and enjoy,, be safe, always double check the chamber many times.. buy the guns now before you get married,lol.

    I actually bought my first man cannon while I was married for 3 years. SHe's not the biggest fan, but I just keep all that kinda stuff in our guest room, aka "the boys room".

    Buy and enjoy my friend.. guns are great to collect. you could be wasting your money on gambling, drinking , drug abuse.. With guns they will always have a good resale value. Sometimes the right gun may bring a profit in the future.

    Very true, but I think a good mix off all four is also a good thing to consider, right?

    I'm thinking a .40 next.

    MODERATION is the key word, Use moderation in all things good. They do not become bad until.


    40 is a nice caliber, I like em all.

    Do you like the 40 more than the 9mm or 45? P

    Here in ny we are restricted with only a ten round magazine. They are all good rounds. If I could carry a high capacity magazine I might go for a 9mm. I stay with 40 ten round pocket. And a 1911 45 when concealment is convienant

    Go buy a 45 1911 style and enjoy. You already have a 9mm. Stay away from the glocks
