First pistol build.

Mostly Aero Precision with some SB Tactical and Geissele sprinkled in for good measure.

Think of it as an overgrown C96 Broomhandle


Come Bloody Angel

Break off your chains

And look what I've found in the dirt.

 

Pale battered body

Seems she was struggling

Something is wrong with this world.

 

Fierce Bloody Angel

The blood is on your hands

Why did you come to this world?

 

Everybody turns to dust.

 

Everybody turns to dust.

 

The blood is on your hands.

 

The blood is on your hands!

So for those in the USAstan, and watched the democratic debate last night, what did you think of Beto's comment on ar-15s and ak-47s?

Yes, the C96, because it's grip resembled that of a broom.

Haven't watched any of them yet, but I have a pretty good idea of what he said.  One can't help but admire their audacity.  They take money from our pockets in the form of taxes, and then think they can give us that money back while taking our guns away, and call that fair.  Too bad mine were all lost in a boating accident.

It all happened so fast.  Always liked cooking on gas, we have a gas stove.  One thing led to another.  House fire took everything.

Took the M&P Shield 2.0 out today.  Broke it in. Went flawless, used brass and aluminum ammo, a couple different self defense rounds, went through a box of each.  Not a single hiccup.  I’m happy with it!

So my buddy finally listened to me yesterday. I told him to get something that's actually practical for concealed carry. So he came in, looked at Glock 43s, 43Xs, 19s, Smith & Wesson M&P Shield 2.0s, Shield Compacts, Shield .380 EZs, Ruger LC9s, LCPs, even Sig P365s. Even a couple of snub nose, compact, Smith & Wesson, Ruger, and Taurus revolvers, even a Ruger American.
 
I was showing him all these, I was like, "these are all decent for concealed carry, these would be more practical than a full sized 1911."
 
 
He got a fullsized, 6" Heritage 357 Mag revolver, that the cylinder doesn't even flip out, it's like an old fashioned Colt single action to unload it.  So you can remove one shell at a time, instead of like modern revolvers where you can smack all 5 or 6 out at once.

He wanted a "big caliber like .40 or .45"  
I was so freaking close to getting him leaving with an M&P Shield 2.0 .45, M&P Shield .380 EZ, or Glock 48.

 

All three infinitely better than the type of revolver he got for concealed carry.

Nah. Just tell him to throw it, and aim for the crotch.

Haven't you always wanted to conceal carry a boat anchor?

Oh you're out of your six shots?  Just chuck it.  Can't put in a fresh mag or quickly pop the cylinder.

I used to carry a compact 1911 chambered in .45.  My goal since then has been slowly getting away from that and finding middle ground from one extreme to the next (one being an all steel 1911, down to a tiny LCP.)

I'd say chucking it as hard as you can is the right answer here.

I've had a P3AT forever, not the best nor worst, but it's always worked.

 

I managed sales at an FFL for a while, and convincing people of something sensible to carry was always difficult. Yeah, a fullsize seems great and generally fits a hand better than something small like a J-frame S&W or a P3AT, but no one seemed to realize how much a good concealment holster cost, and the amount of effort it took to carry something like a G22 or a 1911.

Right?  Then go and buy something a little more practical.

 

Thing is I know he likes .357 magnum too, I tried getting him to look at snub nose revolvers.  He can still have his .357, but in something much more practical to carry.

I settled on the M&P Shield 2.0.  I love it.  As for concealed handguns.  I always tell people, "not everyone can conceal a Glock 19.  Just because it's one of the most popular options doesn't mean that's what you have to start out with."  I always try to convince them to go to the middle ground.  Something like an M&P Shield 380 EZ, Shield 2.0, Glock 43X, stuff like that.  Some people don't learn.

 

 

 

Honestly, with my buddy, I think what I'll finally have to get him to settle on is a hammer fired DA/SA Bersa.  At least it'd be more practical to carry.

Filled with hollow points. Quick, slim, accurate, it's enough.

I had the PA-63.  Well I still own it, but it fucking hurts to shoot.  It has too light of a recoil spring, and it's an aluminum alloy frame.

Interesting, I always felt the 9x18 round was quite light on recoil, but then again my Mak is all steel, so the recoil is properly dampened.

I also have a CZ-52, but it's so picky about ammo that it's not good except for a plinking pistol

Yeah, 9 mak isn’t a snappy round in and of itself.  Just the pistol I’m talking about.  The FEG PA-63 is known to be particularly snappy.

We were having an interesting conversation on another forum i frequent about ATF definitions regarding DD's.

 

1/4oz of charge in a projectile makes a DD, but a missile can have 1/4 lbs.

 

this made me cringe a bit. a missile isn't what you think it is. historically and contemporarilly, a missile is any object propelled by force at a target. Think back to the days of the trebuchet and other catapults. every stone, arrow, and BP filled coconut was considered a missile. and still is.

 

so i ask... is a morter or M203 not a modern day catapult? and isn't a modern missile just a rocket assisted projectile? how does this make any sense?
