Thread: Which Semi Auto...

  1. #1

    Question Which Semi Auto...

    Been thinking of a semi auto (for concealed carry) in the near future:

    These are one's I'm considering at this point.
    Glock G30 or G36
    Ruger's P345

    ...any others I should look at? (I don't want to break the bank)

    (I should have put this in the /handgun-discussion/ forum. Maybe a Moderator can move it, thanks.)

    I don't know, I'm not a connesieur (sp?) of fine handguns but really like my .45 XD. For me anyway, comes up on target very fast, stays on target while rapid firing, seems very accurate, and is very easy to field strip. I also carry a Taurus .45 1911, which I like a lot, too. Both retail about $600; some folks seem to sneer at Taurus, but I've found the 1911 to be completely trouble-free, fun, and accurate. If I had to choose, I'd go for the XD, just because it's slightly easier to conceal (if that's an issue). FWIW.

  4. All I can tell you is that I really like my Ruger P345 I use a crossbreed supertuck or a fobus paddle holster. I have looked into getting other 45's but for the money I dont think you can beat the Ruger. I have well over a 1000 rounds through mine without glitch. But really get one that feels comfortable for you.

    These are one of those "opinion" threads and everybody here has got one Glocks are excellent firearms; reliable, tough, accurate, easy to use, dependable and affordable. My suggestion would be to head down to your nearest gun shop and ask the salesman to show them to you. See how they feel in your hand, ask about the features, etc... hopefully your salesman will be someone knowledgeable. Keep in mind he will have an opinion too on which firearm he or she thinks is best. Again, weigh all the facts and see how they feel. If you can find a range/shop that will let you rent guns, then by all means see how they shoot. This will assist you in making your choice. Good luck!

    Like Glockster said lots of opinions. As you probably can tell I am partial to HKs but I like Glocks a lot also. You get a lot of gun for the money.

    Thumbs up

    Thanks!

    I figured to get a lot of opinions, and I'll use those as part of my add to some pistols to research.

    My purchase plans aren't until around Christmas so I'll be checking backoften.

    I'll most likely check some out at Cabela's, but most likely will buy and get more in depth info from a couple other shops. Ponderosa Sports is about 35 miles from my place and worth the bike ride there.
    Cliff knows his weapons and he sold me my SP101. I'm not sure if I can list his website here or not, but I did add it in the " List Of Idaho Gun Stores " Thread in "Idaho Discussion and Firearm News".

    This is part of his display area:

    I could have written this post. I have both guns and like them a lot. I tend to lean towards the XD though.

    I'll throw in the CZ line. Maybe something like the 2075 RAMI in 9mm or .40 s&w. If you are into plastic they offer the RAMI P. I think around $500-550ish.



  11. I shopped and bought a Sig P232.....it's tried and true. Check out the stainless version with Hogue grip and night sights.
