What kind if handgun are you thinking about getting? I'd like to get a Sig p226, but think my next purchase will be a walther ppk. I already got a full size 9mm, would like something more compact for carrying

RE: Chat hub
I'm really liking the SCCY CPX-2. Compact 9mm, with an optional grip extension that feels spectacular. Around $250 retail, I think the MSRP is only like $310. One big selling point for me is that it has a great warranty. If your gun gets stolen and you file a police report, they'll send you a new one no questions asked. Since I'll be leaving it in my car a lot, that's a pretty big deal. I'm hoping one of the gun shops near me has one for rental so I can spend some time on the range with it before buying. But several shops recommended it for me, and they said they've sold hundreds of them and had very few problems with them. They said the only problems they've had were "user error" kind of things, like using reloaded ammo with too much powder or things like that. 
Sorry to get all "gun preachy" there. I'm just kind of excited because this is my first gun. 
Pulsar the PPK is a sweet gun, I mean if it's good enough for James Bond you KNOW it's a good one Tongue

RE: Chat hub
Right now I got a TZ-75 in 9mm. I really like it, just a little big for carrying. A lot of people seem to think 9mm are junk, but I have had a few, and I have had a .45, and shot numerous other rounds from .22 up to .357 magnums, and 9mm is my preferred round for a handgun

Havent heard about that gun. One thing I would say is definitely try it if possible before you buy it, or at least see if they will let you put a snap cap in and dry fire it a few times. Double action only triggers can be a real pain in the arse, but some are actually not bad. I would rather have a double action only than a single action only though, especially if I was planning on carrying it. Though at the price, I dont think you can really go wrong with it, that warranty is pretty awesome too

RE: Chat hub
Very nice, Michael! I'm all for you guys who can get guns to do so. I do love my guns! Right now I only have one hand gun, a Springfield XD9 Sub-Compact, and I love it immensely! It's a dream to shoot and handle. I've not heard of the gun you are planning to get. The only guns I've seen in that price range are Hi-Points and they are hit or miss (no pun intended). The warranty sounds good and at that price, like Pulsar said, it's hard to go wrong.

I would suggest against leaving it in your car most of the time. Insanely irresponsible IMO. Most illegal guns on the street are those that are stolen and leaving one in your car is akin to asking for it to end up in the wrong hands and, at worse, being a tool used to kill an innocent person. If you want to obtain your CCW permit and carry it with you, do just that...carry it with you and keep it on your person when you aren't at home.
</preaching>

As for 9mm guns, they kick ass. They are proven to match the penetration of larger caliber ammo and only insecure a-holes call them junk. Me thinks they protest too loudly and suffer from phallic insecurity. A 9mm is a great size and performs as well as any round. What makes a firearm effective is not the gun or the ammo - it's the shooter and his/her accuracy. A .22 is extremely deadly in the right hands and there is substantial evidence that shows a smaller caliber round, having less kick and intimidation to the shooter, is easier to place a round where you want it A .45 can be difficult for most shooters to handle and few can shoot them consistently, especially in a panic situation. The best gun you can have is the one that happens to be on you and the best caliber to carry is the one you feel most comfortable shooting.

That said, since I was a kid I've dreamed of having a 1911 .45 ACP and one of them will likely be my next hand gun. There is something just magical about them Big Grin

RE: Chat hub
I still want a 1911, but I am going to wait until I can afford the one I want this time. For a brief period, I had a Llamma something another duo, 1911 clone. It was alright, but the slide and barrel and clip and any other moving part just felt sloppy. Got it for $200 and was easily able to sell it for the same though.

For another brief period, I had a Sig 1911 target stainless on layaway, but my car broke down and that was more important than a new gun at the time. Priorities suck.

Like I said, my next one will most likely be a PPK. Looking for an older interarms model though, stainless of course lol. I been meaning to go take my concealed weapons permit class for a while now, but one of those things I just keep putting off. But Maine is working on getting constitutional carry, which essentially means if you are able to pass the background check to legally purchase a handgun, then you can legally carry concealed. You can already legally open carry with out a permit now, but I feel that is just putting a target on yourself 


edit: If no ones noticed yet, guns are another of my life long interests lol. Family was all military, and grew up with them pounding firearms safety and training into my head lol

RE: Chat hub
That's awesome about Maine changing it's law. I agree with you on open carry but treasure a persons right to do it. I rarely carry my XD9 because even though it is a subcompact it's still pretty thick. I've been considering a Beretta Nano as first priority over a 1911 only because I would rarely carry the 1911.

RE: Chat hub
I was looking at the Beretta tomcat, but there seems to be a lot of issues with it. The ppk seems like the right size and a good caliber.

Don't get me wrong, I'm all for open carry, but its just not for me. I was reading an article the other day that a guy was in Walmart with his gun on his waist, and another guy tried to hit him in the head with a baseball bat so he could steal his firearm. I think that was in Washington
