It's a damn shame Chinese ammo is banned these days; I could get the mad hookup on Norinco 5.56 & 9mm ammo

My understanding is that the ban went in place when it was discovered the Chinese were using lead in their manufacturing process.

Yeah I hear ya ... I'm holding onto my stash of Guatamalan M193 and shooting other calibers until (?) prices come down on 5.56 NATO. Besides Wolf I don't know what else is available that is reasonably priced.

AR15.com 5.56 NATO ammo price list

[quote=Kengs;715249]I sorta cheated...I have a Police Positive in .22lr and a Police Marksman. However, like you, I am definitely more of a Smith devotee...with my fav being the 5-screw N-frame. One of my most treasured pieces is this old K-frame .22

That's not cheating...that's excellent. My area of Smith interest must overlap yours - just beginning with the Pre-Wars, peaking in the '60's and petering down from there to the point that all the current Smiths I'm interested in are PC pieces.

True -- I like obscure calibers, but after a while it gets a little annoying...

I agree. And if it's sex appeal you're after, the Tactical does just as well with a can hanging off the front end. Artificial environments rule, and I love my home state.

I'm turning 21 next week and I'm planning to pick up my dad's Glock 17. He recommended me the 10mm instead of the 9mm but said if I wanted he'd sell me his 9mm and he'd buy the 10mm. Not planning on carrying it concealed at this point in time.

10mm is a pretty rare chambering. 9mm would be a better cartridge to learn to shoot with if this is your first handgun. The ammunition is less expensive and the recoil is less.
post #191 of 3167
FWIW, 10mm ammo is PRICEY.
post #192 of 3167
I've read that other places as well, and I've decided to go with the 9mm. He's got two 17-round clips as well.

If I purchase my dad's gun, would I need to register it in my name or pass a background check, or anything like that? I read on crime.about.com on the gun laws in GA page that this is not required but would like to be sure, obviously.
post #193 of 3167
So it's legal to carry a concealed gun in most places in the states? Do you carry it with you when you're out and about? Would you gun down someone in street, who puts you in a threatening situation? edit: considering some people talked about self defense and the difference in damage when shooting people with different guns... have you shot anyone? edit2: and this is not to offend anyone, I'm just curious.

In addition to the factors others have mentioned, you will definitely want to consider the fact that the Glock in 10mm Auto is much more of a handful than the Glocks chambered in 9mm Para. In other words, you should definitely hold/shoot a Glock 20/29 before you buy one. The grip is HUGE and unless you have very large hands you will have a tough time with the gun.

Much like you should avoid clothes that do not fit your body, you should avoid handguns that do not fit your hand.

Thanks for the advice, folks.
