I'm going to try my hand at squirrel and rabbit hunting next year with the .22

Now for something bigger

Like Jan (Libourel) stated, a properly designed 9mm HP load (say 124gr. +P) will more than suffice for self defense.

IMO, the boxo'truth is entertaining, but no substitute for real-world tests with 10% ballistic gelatin (and layers of denim).

Here's an oldie, but still one of my favourites: S&W Mod. 27, 8 3/8" barrel

All the opinions! Okay, here's mine: As a first time gun owner, you can't go wrong with the simplicity, ease of ownership, and low cost of an Automag.

Currently have a Baretta Mod 7 9mm, a cheap .22LR, and a .60 caliber flintlock pistol (relic and curio). Sadly I don't get to shoot much any more, but I plan on fixing that.

At some point I'm going to custom build a .308 match grade long range "sniper" rifle, but I'm unsure which gun to use as the base. And probably custom build a 1911 match grade pistol, unless I can find an actual WW2 era Colt model. It'd be nice to get an actual surplus M1 Garand, cosmoline and all, but holy hell are they expensive (easily $3000+).

Too bad I live in a particularly anti-gun portion of Commiefornia, or I'd get fun things like a machine gun, .50 caliber Barrett, a Thompson, and other such fun items.

I can find them for about $ 600 in useable condition. Those $ 3000+ ones are collector grades, and even those can be found for cheaper.

Surprisingly, my Backups have never given me any trouble...

This is true. I've been to the CMP store at Camp Perry a few times, and its pretty sweet. However, you do need to satisfy certain requirements to purchase -- have had some training, participate in shooting, etc. They have a new shipment so its probably a great time to buy from the CMP. They have .30 M1 Carbines also!

Meh, I think he means the TDE Automags. But I'll agree, I've never had problems with the .30 Carbine, 9mm Win. Mag, or 22 Mag variants. Neat pieces, if a little weak in the fit and finish department.

^ is that a Colt Police Positive?
post #161 of 3148
Very, very sharp eye. Yes, a Target model, in fact, chambered for .32 Colt New Police. Nice Smith, BTW. I collect some Colts, but I'm a Smith guy at heart, with an especial fondness for the 8-3/8" barreled pieces. Definitely need a blue M27, it's nickel brother needs a friend. What I'd really like is a nickel M53 in 8-3/8" trim. That would be sweet.

Regards,
Huntsman

No matter my feelings about guns, I love the fact that you are at the range in a 3-piece...

You must get a lotta weird looks..

Yeah, well, you gotta rock it like you live it, I say. I do get a a lot of weird looks, but then again that kinda happens to me daily. Thanks.

The suit with the Garand was a bit of an homage also, as John Garand was quite snappy for an engineer...
