    I looked for a SKS locally; wasn't much of a selection. If the shop I go to tomorrow doesn't have a decent one, I'll probably get the carbine...

    Costa Rica! It will be beautiful, but it sucks leaving my family and girlfriend behind for 3 months. It also sucks not being able to shoot for 3 months. But hey, studying abroad will be a blast...(I hope!)

    MP40 Compact!!!!

    I recently bought a S & W MP40 which I really like ( I may even love it ) But the long, hot, Texas, summer taught me that I'll need something a little smaller by next summer that can hide in my shorts, under my T-shirt, for CCW. So I'll be buying a MP40 compact when they come out. Are you listening S & W????

    That is awesome! Costa Rica is a very nice place! I had alot of fun when I went there. The trick is to try to get away from the tourist locations. Last time I went I was able to stay in a nature reserve. It was a 4 hour ride into the jungle by tractor (was not truck accessible). Every day we hiked into the jungle and swam in the river (which had a 50 foot waterfall that we would climb and dive off of). Howler monkeys were our alarm clocks. There was no power unless you had things that were battery opporated. It was sweet!
    You will have a good time!


    I am planning my own study abroad for next year. My girlfriend and I will go to Prague for 3 months. (a + that they are gun friendly! )
    Here is a pic from my last trip to Prague

    I know, you think it's like a Sigma. ...... A lighter trigger on a carry gun with no external safety would be a little dangerous, don't cha think ?
    If you don't like it don't buy it!

    Actually, I never even shot the Sigma; I just didn't like how the trigger and grip felt on the M&P. Maybe if I'd shot it with the other backstrap, I'd have liked it more?

    What kind of ammo does it have in it?

    I usually shoot Winchester 230 FMJ. I'll set up to reload this week, then I'll work up some new load's. I didn't like ho;;ow point's, but a little work with the file & polish on the slide lock lever fixed that. They were a little shorter & caught on the inside of the lever. It is a very accurate pistol!

    When I bought my G23 I also bought a Sigma at the same time. I liked the way the Sigma pointed- ie. it seemed to be on target more quickly and naturally. I just didnít like the trigger. I sold it years ago.

    I actually own a Sigma SW9VE also and the trigger is extremely long & hard. I use it for a car gun often because of the trigger. I know the odds are, that if I ever pull the trigger it will be on purpose. Early Sigma's, deservedly, got a bad name but the VE models are very dependable.
    I started out shooting my MP40 with the medium backstrap and have found since, the large size works better for me. The trigger is (I hear) a 6.5 lb pull. A lot of people judge the feel of the trigger by handling one at a gun store and just pulling on the trigger. That way it is gritty, but, when it is cocked it is very smooth.
    We also own a Baby Desert Eagle 9mm, with a 4lb pull that is very sweet but it has a external safety.
    Anyway to each his own. Hope I didn't come off as too grouchy.

    I ended up picking up a Browning Buckmark Standard. It's a lot of fun and hopefully my girlfriend will enjoy shooting it. Thanks to everyone for their input!

    I'm currently waiting for a Sig 226 Elite to arrive. After that I'm planning on getting a Kahr.

    I actually have my next three picked out. Don't know in which order that they will come but they are:

    MRI Baby Eagle .45ACP Semi-Compact
    Browning Buckmark
    Sig Mosquito with Holoscope.

    Yeah, I've heard nothing but great things about the Buckmark and have heard mixed reviews of the Sig Mosquito. The thing about the Sig is that you hear totally negative things or great thing. Nothing middle of the road. I want one because it has the look and feel of a larger caliber pistol but will is very cheap to plink around with. It will also be a good pistol to pack on the 4-wheeler to shoot snakes and such with.

    I would definately go for the Buckmark. great plinker, accurate, reliable, and costs next to nothing to shoot all day. Since you mentioned the Hi-Point carbine, Browning also makes a carbine version of the buckmark, slap a red dot sight on that, buy a brick of ammo and head to the range, you're good to go. Oh well, thats my two cents. Enjoy whatever you choose and shoot safely.
