i dont know what it is, but theres something about glocks that appeals to me. i bought my glock 30 the day i turned 21.
01-06-2006, 04:42 PM #11
I hear ya, I love my glock! my brother is a federal agent (yeah I'm the bad son) and he carries two glock 40's as service pistols... he's the one that turned me on to them. I forgot to mention my other psitol, its a Colt Delta Elite 10mm. Badass gun and looks mean as shit, but it's single action so I had to upgrade to the glock!
01-06-2006, 04:43 PM #12
my boy is totally obsessed with this sh_t too. hes got an m14, 2 colt 1911s, a fab 10, and lots of others guns too, including a ww2 belt fed 30-06. im not sure what company makes it, but it looks like the browning .50 cal machine guns.
01-06-2006, 04:45 PM #13
I don't have the requisite gangbanger 'Glock fotay' but do shoot my Desert Eagle .44 mag and my sig 226 all the time. My favorite shotgun? Well it would have to be the Mag 10.
01-06-2006, 04:45 PM #14
glocks are incredibly accurate and they're damn near indestructable. il eventually get a model 21, 31, 19 and a 17.
01-06-2006, 04:47 PM #15
shot guns are hella fun to shoot too. especially when your using nitro steel mag tripple odd buckshot with an 18 inch barrel.
01-07-2006, 10:28 AM #16
You aren't a real man unless you can shoot a Desert Eagle one handed.

id like to try that, unfortuneately the only handguns ive shot are my .45 and a .357 mag. ive shot plenty of mag slugs through my 12 ga, although i know thats not really the same kind of thing.
01-08-2006, 12:55 AM #19
Springfield Armory M1A1 (basically a rebuilt M-14)
Stephens double 12ga (pair)
Para-0rdnance P-10 subcompact hi-cap .45, pair, one blue and one stainless
Colt Defender compact .45
old cap and ball revolver bought at a garage sale, which I have not fired.
Possible future acquisitions:
Magnum Research Desert Eagle, 50 AE caliber for a car gun
.410 derringer ooooooh, so nasty!
Kimber custom carry .45, and I will probably sell my colt and maybe one P-10
Magnum Research Mini-Eagle, .45 cal and I will maybe sell the other P-10
I am not a collector, per se, since all of my guns have a particular function/purpose, except of course the black powder revolver, though I have thought about loading it up and keeping it on the nightstand for my Princess to use in an emergency. She is kind of klutzy with a colt-style .45 and I just can't get her to master the basics. I am afraid she will shoot wild, get a bad case of thumb bite from the hammer or the slide, and drop her weapon where the bad guy can get it. I know she won't have any trouble with this old plow handle revolver.

the tension on the trigger of a glock really isnt that bad at all. but all things considered, its too bad that glocks dont have an external hammer. i would never want to carry my glock with a round in the chamber cause it could go off very easily. this has happened several times to police officers. if i am in a situation where i feel i need to have a loaded gun, il lock the action back on the glock, so if i needed to use it, i could without having to take the time to cock it. btw, i didn't know they made deringers in .410, thats pretty crazy. you dont live in california do you?
01-08-2006, 02:09 PM #23
hey anna, im thinkin that for your girl, a short double barrled 12 ga would be more suitable, maybe even a street sweeper, especially if you live in a state where you're allowed to have really short barrels on shotguns. now that would ruin someones day if they decided to break into your house.
01-08-2006, 02:38 PM #24
I've shot both the .50AE and the .44mag Eagles and IMO the .50 is way overkill. Especially in a tactical situation. Now if you are trying to pierce metal (but why), that's another story.
I do NOT recommend a short barrel shotgun of any caliber unless it has a full length stock. The fastest way to a broken wrist is with a sawed off pistol grip shotgun and a magnum load. Plus, that would be illegal.
01-08-2006, 02:58 PM #25
the kick on a 12 ga isn't that bad, as long as its not mag slugs your using. although i suppose a female might think differently

I have a few.
and a 12 gauge
01-08-2006, 04:08 PM #28
i have shot mag buckshot rounds like this through my 12 ga without any problem at all. well, not with my hand in my pocket, but you know what i mean. btw, my shotgun doesn't even have a pistol grip on it.
01-08-2006, 04:10 PM #29
scorpion 9mm, hk 22mm semi, some shotguns and rifle
01-08-2006, 04:14 PM #30
i would also like to point out that i didn't suggest that girl try shooting with only one hand. it would make sense that she would use both hands.

My shotguns are both legal, with legal length barrels and full stocks. I don't care for magnum loads for home defense. An overzealous prosecutor might make much of the fact that a mag load was used, and it isn't needed in home defense, IMHO. But I doubt that my wrist would be easily broken by a mag load in a chopped shotgun. I just don't think chopping it or using mags are good ideas in my situation.
01-09-2006, 12:53 AM #33
trying to run up on someone armed with an m14 with a scope wouldn't be a very good idea. hell, at least you probably wouldn't feel much cause a 30-06 would most likely kill someone instantly. btw, im jelous, i really want a clip fed semi auto asault rifle, an m14 would be a dream come true.

I was specifically talking about a modified stock length to pistol grip only. Shorter barrels produce less firing recoil, but take away the forward weight/mass of the bbl and add to that an extremely light stock, and you have a nasty kicking piece of trouble. Watched a guy do it and ended up with a compound fracture, drove him to the hospital and tried not to laugh and say told ya.
Hey, if it works for you, by all means, use the tool. I prefer birdshot to the face over buckshot, but that's just me, I don't want to hit anyone in the next house over, just in the same room as me. I live in a suck ass state where you have to flee your home so the light birdshot round is preferable to premeditated homicide (buckshot).
If you are piercing metal, go with the big .50, by all means! I heard that most of the criminals were gone from NO, is this accurate?

Interesting...Im still debating on which I should use for home defense.. Buckshot, or Sabot Slugs. I suppose full choke in close quarters wont have the chance of too many pellets going elsewhere, as that was my main concern, however theres only 8 or so pellets in 00 Buckshot. My concern with the Sabots was definately over penetration, however I know that Im gonna drop someone right where they stand with one a those. Im thinking about buying the Mossberg 500 in matte black for this purpose...
.45 Cherokee Black Powder
20ga. Mossberg w/scope&cheek rest
those were gifts from my father to me, and he owns about 60 other weapons...an assortment of high powered rifles, black powder guns, several shotguns, a Ruger .44 Magnum, a S&W Snub-nose .43magnum(that he carries in his work bag), a S&W .25ACP(keeps it above his bed), a .22 Ruger revolver, just to name a few.

Because of the internal security situation here in Ireland I'm restricted to a Ruger 10.22 and even for that I had to wait almost seven months for the licence application to come through!.

i've got a 12 guage that's about it.

Some of the criminal element is returning. Things are getting too hot for them in Houston and other places. My old neighborhood bar down in the upper French Quarter now has crack in plentitude again. No robberies yet, and only a couple of murders. No criminal acts that I know of in the French Quarter so far, except of course drug deals and drug use and the world's oldest profession being practiced. <blush>
I also like the SCARY size of the bore on that bad boy. (50AE) That .50 hole has got to be the most intimidating thing to look into, Girlfriend! Much better to scare away someone than have to kill him, both from moral and practical standpoints. But I would be quite confident with the .50AE in a fight involving car doors as cover. I would just hate to carry that beast around, so it is strictly a car gun for me if I get it.
My home defense shotgun rounds are generally #6 shot but I keep slugs and 00 on the little bandolier on the stock. I agree on small shot for urban home defense, but only because overpenetration is not an issue with small shot. Here in Louisiana, you would actually be better off, legal-wise, with 00 since it is the accepted standard antipersonnel round. If you use something that might be considered non-lethal force but it results in death, anyway, then you could be going from a clear-cut justifiable homicide to negligent homicide, and you could see some significant time behind bars as well as having a felony conviction. However, I think morally I am more obligated to consider safety concerns than legal details. 00 can, and has, and does, kill people on the other side of a wall. That is 9 .38 cal pellets traveling just subsonic, The wall of a frame house will NOT stop it.
The only thing that troubles me about carrying slugs is that my doubles have only one open tube barrel. You don't really want to shoot slugs through a modified choke. I really should put together some tactical practice exercises so I don't hesitate when reloading with the big stuff, i.e. slugs one side and 00 the other. Generally, though, #4 or #6 in the face, or in the chest through light clothing, will take the fight out of a man, I believe. I don't care if he dies or not... I just want to cancel the threat he posed. Actually, I would prefer that he doesn't die. I do believe in the inherent sanctity of human life, and killing even a bad person is definitely a sad thing to me.
Thinking about beanbag rounds. Anybody ever had any experience with them?

You can't have a shotgun? You should be able to hunt, and you simply don't hunt birds with a rifle.
