    Re: Pistols

    I have a Glock 23 .40 subcompact. It's a little smaller then the model 22 that the cops carry,and holds 13 rounds. It is concealable, accurate, reliable, and packs alot of rounds. If a person aint dead after getting pumped with even one .40 hollow point round, they will wish they were. I also have a long barelled S&W .357 I carry hunting. The only thing I'm gonna advise you on for the Glocks and other weapons made with a polymer frame such as the S&W MP is to get some sort of cushoning for the grip.The reason being is because they vibrate alot, and you'll really feel it in your hand after a day at the range.

      The vibration is a consequence of the mass of the pistol and not necessarily the polymer. Although, the polymer does contribute to the reduced mass of the weapon.

      I've had no problem with 1000 rounds through a Glock 19 on a typical range day. However, 12 rounds through a tiny revolver (with a tiny grip) chambered for .357 Magnum made me agitated instantly.

        that's because the .357 is a real caliber... jk, whatever floats your boat.... I accidentally shot myself with a 9mm in the hand once, which is just one more reason I need to be a chaplain. HAHAHA....unarmed and harmless.

          LOL. In my defense, it was a 220lbs USMC E-5's revolver and he told me his hands were black and blue the next day.

          Although you may have shot yourself in the hand with a 9mm once before, you weren't on video saying you're the "only one professional enough" to handle a pistol - more specifically a "Glock 40" - like this clown:

                So you are the Female? Fabulous video brother. The range is always fun, the music eeeegggaaa so-so. Does NJ restrict weapons very much? Those were ten round magazines correct?

                  I carry a Colt Night Defender 1911 in .45, and I think it's a wonderful handgun. 1911s, in my opinion, have a nearly unbeatable trigger (because they're SA-only), and the thing just shoots itself. 1911s have a bit of a learning curve, though, as evidenced by the 'idiot scratch' on the receiver where I slid the retention pin along the body of the receiver trying to put it back in. Ooops.

                    Unfortunately, NJ is pretty restrictive. NJ has a 15 round limit for magazines. That was a Magpul 20 round PMag permanently blocked to 15 rounds.

                      Yeah, the other day I scratched my $750 pistol, I know how it feels.

                      That seems like a very big pistol for concealed carry, very heavy. Colt means quality but I like the smaller pistols for CC such as 380's. For me the 1911 and the cocked hammer just doesn't do it for me. I like striker fired pistols and DAO. Where do you carry your 45 on a sling? jk.....

                          It's a honkin' huge gun for concealed carry, you're right. I used a shoulder holster in the winter time under my jacket, which worked well. The Defender is a 3.5" Commander-style frame, so it's a little smallish, but still heavy. My dad carries a DAO Ruger LCP and I just couldn't get the hang of that mile-long trigger pull. In the summer, I have no idea what I'll do for the 1911. I may end up swinging towards a Beretta PX4 Compact or something.

                            I saw an ad for a Colt Mustang today, it looked righteous.

                                I can't take my dad into a gun store anymore because of the TRP. He goes gaga for it. I'd love to have one too, but they're pretty expensive.
