I thought about that - but I want a barrel of at least 4", andI don't wanna mess w/ the comped extension in order to get it. They also seem to be okay plinkers but are supposedly not as accurate as the target models of other brands...
I'm sticking with the .40 caliber OD green Glock family: G27 and G22-23.
The next one is either going to be a:
Smith and Wesson M&P 45
Smith and Wesson 1911
Smith and Wesson Model 64
It won't be mine, but my wife wants a P99 to go with her P22. Then, she went and shot my buddies wife's Sig P220, and loved it. She didn't like the recoil of my USP 40, but loved the .45 in the Sig. I guess that means more overtime for me.
I am focused on carry pistols now and if I were to buy another pistol later this year it would probably be a Kimber Ultra Carry or RCP in .45 ACP.
I have the Ruger 22/45 and have had no problems with it functioning. But it is a beast to reassemble after cleaning. You have to put the mag in, take it out, make sure the hammer is down, get the dangle in the pocket, etc. or the thing doesn't work.
Ultimately I arrived at the fact I didn't find the .22 very satisfying to shoot. I know it's inexpensive to shoot, but sometimes "ya gotta pay the money."
Masada in .223 :smt023
I really want a p99as 9mm and a p228
a Masada would be nice too.
As it stands right now the the next thing on my list is a uzie but I'm kind of starting to question whether I should pick up another handgun before the elections come around.
Well, I just picked up a CZ-52. CMP is going to put M1 carbines on sale very soon; I'll get two, depending on the price. I want an underfolder AK, and I think I can squeeze that as well. After that, we'll see.
I'm having trouble deciding which one I'll likely buy in March. It's going to be a full-size 9mm Luger or .45 ACP pistol. With a much larger preference toward the .45 ACP. Considering a military-spec M1911A1, CZ 75 or 97, Walther P99as, and even the new M&P 45 has caught my interest. I'll just have to see.
Well, I've thought long and hard about what I want for my next gun. I thought so long and hard that I went out and bought it before posting!
So we have a Bersa Thunder 380 for the wife and a Smith & Wesson Model 70 for me. Actually, the S&W was an impulse buy.
So I guess I better start thinking again.
Glock Model 39 .45 GAP and a possibly a 7.62 AK.
i'd like a .22 for target practice..MUCH cheaper ammo than the .40 but i can't seem to find any i like. any suggestions?
I am about to buy a Target 22. Some of the decent ones seem to be the Beretta Neos, S&W 22A, Browning Buckmark and Ruger Mark III. Also, Sig makes the mosquito and Walther sells the P22.
I have looked at all of them and decided I wil buy a Ruger Mark III 22/45 (it has a traditional grip instead of the space gun grip of the plain Ruger Mark III's). The Sig and Walther are fun for plinking, but supposedly not as accurate as the target 22s. Most of the target 22s have all black sights. I don't like that. I want white dot sites. Ruger makes one model of the 22/45 w/ a 4" barrel and fixed white dot sights. The Rugers are a pain to disassemble compared to other brands. But, its what I've settled on. There is one at my local shop for $221. I hope to have it in a couple of months.
i need something easy to disassemble because patience is not something i was blessed with.
Shipwreck: My 22/45 is stainless with the 5.5" slab barrel. It is more accurate than my 3.4" P22, but only marginally so. The P22 is very accurate, especially considering the barrel length. I think the main reason is the factory SA trigger on the P22 is better.
But you might be happier with the 22/45. After all, the Walther P22 is designed after the much hated P99.:smt082
Jeepgirl: I don't know why .22 semis are so hard to field strip? Shouldn't be that way.
I am seriously thinking about getting the new FNP .45. I own the FNP-9 and really like it. If the .45 is as good, I'll be buying one of them!
As a whole, I never shoot sub 4" barrelled guns as well. I don't know if its only the sight radius, or a combination of that and the longer barrel. But, its something I've noticed with any gun I have shot. My P99c is very accurate, but past 15 feet, my groups open up where as they do not open up with my fullsize until I start shooting past 21 feet.
That's why I am resistant to but the P22....
