Thread: I just can't decide!

  1. Talking

    I would recommend a officer size 1911 that's just personal feelings. And you can get them from .380,9mm, 40 cal 38 super and of course the best .45 acp the best man stopper of all time

  3. Oh wow, how did I not know about that sr9c?! From the looks of it not only is it pretty compact and concealable but a +7 mag extension for range shooting?! Gtfo! Think that might have just solved my problem, thank you sir. Sorry to hear about your issue, however with Ruger you can expect it to get fixed and have a long lasting gun.

    On a side note I love Oregon, seeing you add those taxes in made me cringe!

    There are several reasons I chose the SR9C. You get a 10 rd and a 17rd magazine that has a sleeve on it that basically turns it into a full size SR9. The little 10 rd magazine comes with that little pinky grip extension on it which, to me, adds a comfort level. I saw a video yesterday about a guy who also has an SR9c and his hands are kinda small so her doesn't feel that he needs that extension. It has a reasonably small profile. Even though some folks don't like the slide safety, except on the 1911's, I felt that my wife would feel "safer" if the weapon I chose had one. Easy take down, but then if you look at the other choices I had listed, all of them had a relatively easy take down. Here's a biggie, adjustable sights. And then there is the last biggie. The price point. You get a great little pistol with a great reputation and the capacity to hold 17+1 rds for less than $420. Can it get any better than that? As for taxes, here in the Great State of Texas, we don't have a state employment tax, but we do have an 8.25% sales tax. Gotta pay for them roads and other stuff somehow.

    I've been told (by friends who own one) sr9c needs about 200 rounds ran through before it shoots consistently without hick-ups. I prefer the p95 holds 15 and conceals well.

  6. Simple. Go to your local range and try a lot of 'em out until you find the biggest caliber that you can shoot and carry well. Buy that one. I didn't expect to like any polymer gun (I hate Glocks because I can't hit the side of a barn with one but that's just me and I readily admit they are great guns for those who they 'fit') but when I tried the Beretta PX4 .40 it was love at first shot. Lastly, check out Bud's Guns. With your $500 max, you will be surprised at what you can get.

    Oh yeah, I kind of considered the S&W M&P9C and the S&W M&P40C as well. I don't know why I didn't go that direction. If I'm not mistaken, those guns are a little cheaper than the SR9C even. I have heard that they are very good guns to have. If you decide to go the Beretta PX4 route, just do your research on the take down pin issue that I have read about somewhere. Other than that they have gotten great reviews.

    To the person who mentioned having to fire 200 rds thru the SR9C, you are correct. I have heard the same thing. But, I have that about any brand new gun. 200 or so rds through any new gun is supposed to "break it in" and help work out some of the slide and trigger stiffness. In the research I have done, the recommendation is to fire 200 rds of FMJ through it followed by your choice of 50 self-defense JHP rds. That is to make sure your brand new pistol like the ammo you have chosen for it, because some firearms for whatever reason do not shoot certain brands of ammo well.

    Either buy your gun at a gun show or from Buds. Buds has some really good prices on just about everything.

    I agree with the M&P40c/crossbreed recommendation (my CCW rig, altho I use a Minitaur holster) but don't think you can get there for $500 ($600 maybe - depends on how many mags S&W is throwing in when you buy it)... if the budget's tight consider the M&P9c - a lot cheaper to shoot...

    Haha yea, I'm a big fan of my full size M&P 9. I'm a big guy and can conceal it just fine with a button up shirt a size bigger than I normally wear. I also love the Blackhawk Serpa holster I have for mine!
