Hey Mauro!

I really liked my Tavor. The trigger was a little on the heavy side but there is a trigger kit that everyone praises. You can tune it to close to 4lb pull.

I sold my rifle as I want to get one in FDE instead of black lol. Never had a single issue and shot over 5000 rounds. It's a beauty.


Do me a favour, go check Nighthawk Custom 1911 models. You wont be able to sleep at night wink.gif

Thanks.
I love the sight. I might have them make me a shotgun. I love shotguns. I own several from auto loaders to pumps.
I just can't get into the 1911 body. It's not comfortable in my hand. That's why I asked about the M&P and even HK. The grips are just so nice in my hand. I run with a glock 23 now and even though my accuracy is good I hate it. It's very reliable but it's just not for me.

I think carrying a serious fighting handgun in one of these devices with several extra magazines or speedloaders along with something like a Seecamp in a side-pocket holster would be a very good way to go armed in circumstances requiring extra protection.

I loathe IWB with anything but a very slim pistol--like my old Colt 1903. One IWB variant I rather like is a small revolver fitted with the Barami Hip-Grip. Unless you are going to be sitting down all day, I have never seen much use for ankle holsters.

By far the best carry mode, if trouble threatens, is to have the gun in your hand. Trying to "beat the drop" is very likely to prove fatal unless you have superhuman skills like my late friend Bill Jordan. My old colleague Dave Arnold, who saw many of the best pistol shots of our age in action and shot against many of them, once remarked that Jordan was the only man he ever saw who could consistently beat the drop.

What does "beat the drop" mean?

Perhaps I'm showing my age here. Any viewer of movie and TV Westerns of my youth would understand the term. Having the "drop" on someone is synonymous with having them "covered" with a gun. Hence, "beating the drop" would mean that when an adversary has a gun pointed at you, you can draw, fire and presumably hit your adversary before he can react and get a shot off at you. Realistically, this would mean drawing and firing your gun in less than 0.4-second, which is awfully hard to do, especially from a realistic concealment holster.

Years ago, Dave Arnold and I ran some tests with men ranging from former world-class competitors to rank novices, and the times for all of them to react to a signal and get off a shot from a handgun already leveled at a humanoid silhouette at fairly close range were all very close and in the vicinity of 0.4-second. The shots from the more competent participants were much better centered, but even the novices kept their hits on the paper.

Thanks. Sounds batshit to reach for your gun when someone has you lined up.
