Looking for a good ranch gun
Hello from the New Mexico desert! Looking to start carrying a handgun, attend classes and such. Of course my number one priority is to find a gun that fits me and that I shoot well, but specifically I am looking for something that will be reliable and hardy. I live in the desert and this thing is going to need to function for me in dust storms and freezing snowstorms. My old man was with the USBP back in the day and tells me to go get myself a revolver. What do you all think?
I hear Glocks are as reliable as revolvers. Are SIGs reliable? I hear they're a little more maintenance dependent, but I've never been the kind of guy who doesn't clean his guns. Border Patrol is now using the HK P2000, but they've been having some issues with mechanical failures and breakages so I don't know... maybe that's inevitable.
Haha the list goes on forever. So I am going to go with what works best for me. But give me some guidance! Let me know where to start. Revolver? Glock? SIG? Other?
Remember, rugged reliability is my number one concern.
PS Maybe when we've settled this once and for all we can figure out which round to shoot in it!
