No mistake, at all. You know that famous Strother Martin quote: "What we got here is a failure to communicate."

Or, my personal favorite, from Butch Cassidy: "BINGO!"

Anyway, I can't help it! Next to my dislike for AR's, the next (currently) is Glocks and their many numbers and why, if I may ask, do they start with 17? What happened to 1 through 16?

And, yeah, .45 is a good one, I admit that. That's the whole point of this thread, that is it or isn't it? the 9mm round adequate? With what little I know, my opinion is that the cartridge is MARGINAL. Some feel differently, and maybe they are entitled to their opinion a bit more than I am. I'm not even a handgun people. I consider myself a rifleman, about 80%. then 8% shotgun and 8% handgun, and that's the extent of my bonafides.

But, I do think the 40S&W is a lot more legit as a personal defense cartridge than the wildly famous and popular 9mm.

Good hunting. El Bee

There are two schools of thought on the Glock numerology.

One is the Glock 17, their first handgun, has a 17 round magazine capacity.

The other more plausible school of thought is that it was Gaston Glock's 17th patent. Prior to manufacturing handguns, Glock manufactured other items such as knives and shovels.

When and if the time comes to defend your guns 2-A
a bolt action ain't gonna get it. you will be glad for that old colt in your safe! Parts easily accessible , hell I built my son an AR with a shillen barrel and a Timmney trigger for less than 600 bucks . Ragged hole shooter btw!

Hope none of this happen but with the dems anything can go !

Damn Paul, you paint an ugly scenario. Do you really think the Dinks want to take away my deer rifle? They just want "common sense" gun laws where I could still go to a secure location and look at my gun, but probably not shoot it.

So, I think you nailed the reason why I still have that old Colt A1. It may come in handy, if I have the balls to use it. That's the thing about Girly Men, (Liberals) I think they have no balls? There must be a way they have been chemically castrated by being fed that progressive bullshit for so long. And another thing. Does Hillary look like she's juiced up on testosterone, or what? I thought Trump drove a stake through her heart in 2016? But she still thinks she was robbed. Almost makes me feel sorry for the worthless bitch.

Where were we? Oh yeah! You need to show me where I can get one of those sub MOA machine guns that I hear about all the time. Then I can stack all of my clunky bolt actions out at the curb on trash day. Thank you. [Smile]

Good hunting. El Bee

Yes, thanks! I'll put it on my Christmas list. Good looking, no doubt. Unusual arrangement on the barrel lock, looks upside down? The price is three times what I paid for my Springfield A1, which is very well made, by the way. Although it's 45ACP. I don't know? A 10mm is a tempting option, but are they a bitch to shoot? Maybe the 6" barrel is helpful? Tritone is slick, but is it gilding the Lilly? That treatment, whatever it is, ceracoat or ? won't last forever. My stainless 1911A1 will, and it has VERY similar sights, by the way.

Three grand is reasonable at your bracket, but I keep telling you, I'm on a very modest fixed income! Get the gang together and contribute. Then I would be very grateful!

Good hunting. El Bee
