I know the feeling. I have a Sigma 40 on order and they're back ordered.
Roger that, thanks for information, I guess I will still need grease. I ordered this and it arrived today. Remington anti - fog protective glasses, Luger snap caps, and a Hoppes Pistol cleaning kit with storage box.
These arrived to day - Amazon.com: Peltor Tri-Flange Ear Plugs, Green, 3-Pack: Home Improvement
Loving them so far. I head the whole headsets, and these have a wire between them which makes them easy to keep together and easy to see. Very comfortable although with this style to have to lift your ear to get them to fit, but a great fit due to this.
Finally took this gun out today.
Put 200+ rounds through it without a single issue. Targets were dead on for a factory install, and was able to keep my accuracy at both 7 and 15 yards. Minimum recoil and a very smooth action. The trigger also VERY smooth. I would recommend this gun to any beginner or experienced shooter as I took out an experienced shooter and he also loved it. He let me shoot his .40 smith and wesson and well as his .357 but we both agreed we loved my .9mm more. Of course its comparing apples to oranges but we both said my gun is fun to shoot!
Good on ya mate. All that prep paid off. Congrats. This Sat I will get my Sig Sauer P250c 40sw. Can't wait to try this baby.
EDIT: I canceled the Sigma 40 for the Sig. The waiting list is too long, badly.
Thanks man. Let me know what you think of the sig. I really had a hard time aiming with the .40 he had past 15 yards.
It's my first time I shoot a 40sw. Gonna be interesting.
i really loved the one i shot today, but past 15 yards I was a mess, all over the target
Takes time to know the gun.
This is very true, although I have to say, after shooting a wide range of guns, i feel like this Desert Eagle 9mm (baby eagle) it has the recoil and accuracy of a .22, but the firepower of a glock without the sight and recoil issues.
I would recommend this gun to anyone, although I think my next gun will definitely be either a .45 or a .357 if not a compact CCW
I would also like to add, there was two men firing both a glock 17 and a glockC at the range today, and although I didnt fire either, i must say i am happy with my choice. The glocks seemed to be much louder, much more kick, and from what i could tell the action was a lot rougher, as well as a not so smooth trigger.
It'll smoothed out after shooting for a while. The Desert Eagle has been around for years and they got popular.
Yea, after just 200 rounds my baby eagle has gotten very smooth, much easier to field strip and safety check. The accuracy got better and better as the clips went on, as I would assume is the same as the glock. I am just glad I didnt purchase the glock over this gun, i know thats an oxymoron to most of you
So the Glock has become the standard to compare guns to?
I just love glocks
Yea, when I came home with the gun, i wanted to do as much research as I could and found that site. It made me smile, although mine is different than the one listed there, just the hand grip anyway. I was very glad to learn that mine was not a clone. I was sad to see a taurus on the list though, at the risk of offending someone, i did lots of research and found no taurus is worth purchasing.
My friend had the beretta 92fs, (first .9mm i ever shot other than a glock) and although I liked it, i am really loving mine more.
I also got to shoot a S&W .40, and a S&W .357. I really liked the 357 ALOT, i was super accurate with the first 7 rounds. (What do they call the revolver loaded?)
Also, i found a video about how to detail the lettering of my gun with nail polish and nail poish remover. (one of them http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bZ50brODM_Y)
Is this the best way? I would really like to detail the lettering with a nice bright green to match the sights but I really dont want to take non acetone nail polish to my gun as sometimes that shit doesnt work.
So yours is a different model than those on the list? What is your model?
Also, what is the highest quality ammo at an affordable price?
Its almost identical to that one except for the grip isnt flat, it has indentations for fingers. Its the H3, I believe third generation.
RTFM - or, read the manual. Go to their website, find out what they say about their pistol. Get some standard 115, 124 grain ammo. Take it to a range - shoot it. If you have problems - ask for help from a range officer.
Most folks are more than happy to help a new shooter.
As far as internet "opinions" - Glock is the best pistol ever. Glock is the worst pistol ever. Only plastic guns are worth shooting. Only steel framed guns are worth shooting. 9mm is a sure killer. Nothing less than 45ACP is worth shooting. The 1911 is the best pistol ever designed. The 1911 is outdated, useless, and shoots an obsolete cartridge -- etc., etc., etc.
I firmly believe some folks on some lists are either "couch commandos" or write about their fantasy life from their parents basement.
Shoot the pistol. Shoot other pistols. Find out what you like. Learn from lists - just search, most of your questions have been asked thousands of times - answers will be out there. Perhaps use Google, etc., etc.
It's a DA/SA, looks rather interesting. Made by IWI in Israel. Have fun shooting it.
I used to hate Glocks and I was a total S&W guy. Glock had some of the features I liked this time around and the M&P had some problems with it that I was very uncomfotable with. Glock is a great gun. After you sooh a few rounds with a Glock, when you go back to one of your other guns you will think there is something wrong with them. Glock's handle is at such an angle, the recoil is felt more rearward than up flip and target aquisition is quicker than with other handguns. There are problems with the Glock as well though. If your wrist is not for sure locked it will stovepipe on you. Thye trigger gets alot better if you take the gun fully down and polish the trigger bar and sear assembly to a mirror finish. The Glock also sound like you are playing with a Toys R US gun when you dry fire it, just sounds loose. They are very accurate. I can make a 3" group and knock the center out of targets a 25 yards and don't have a problem hitting a target at 100 yards. The parts are also always available (all of them) and they are inexpensive. The mags for my other guns go for $40 to $80 and the G17 mags are $25 for the 10-17 rounds. There are many after market parts and they will not cost you an arm and a leg. They do like like lead rounds or +p+ rounds.
Over all, if you don't pay full price, I got my G17 for $500, it s a great gun that is reliable. I don't think they are worth the full price tag, $559 for the G17 to $695 for the 10mm or the G35 though. They can handle most any round and thats why I only use TULAmmo for target shooting. it keeps the price down a little. The most important thing is to (1) get used to holding the gun (2) get used to how the gun recoils (3) enjoy youtr new purchase.
Hope you enjoy it, I do.
