reached the point of what I need in handguns

Recommended Posts

Well I have reached the point of what I "need" or , LOL , what I want  , in handguns. I have the Glock platform , the 1911 , and the Beretta M9 . I am to where I see what I want. And "want" is not needed. For some crazy reason I cant explain , I want the Springfield XD9 Mod2 Gray frame and the Stoeger Cougar in 45 ACP .  I don't know why I keep going back to these 2 . I have been beating myself over and over for the last few months. The Stoeger isn't made anymore and  doesn't have parts made for it for sale . That's a big minus ! The S.A. doesn't have parts readily available like Glock or Beretta to where I could just go pick up a part on the spare of the moment. I like them both . I have had the Cougar and it was great . I haven't had the S.A.  XD9 Mod2. I have had the XD9 Service but not the Mod2. Anyways , just thinking outloud . Maybe this discussion will benefit someone ?

I guess we all have different handguns we would like in our safe. Over the past 2 years I have bought 20 handguns and sold most to buy the others.

I have boiled my keepers to the Sig P226 SAO Legion, Sig P320 X-Carry, CZ 75 Compact, CZ RAMI, and a Sig P320 Compact 45.

These work forme with competition, home defense, and just plain fun at the range. I wish you the best in your search.

You haven't lived until you've squeezed a few rounds off in an antique Smith and Wesson or an 1873 Colt.

The first handgun I ever bought was a Beretta 8045 Cougar & I haven't regretted it for a second. They're exceptional shooters & have a milder recoil than any 1911 I've ever shot. It's my main choice for daily carry unless I need deeper concealment. Then I reach for my LC9S. :usa:

'Need'?  What does 'need' have to do with anything? :dirty:

You have reached a very temporary condition known as 'wantless'.  That is to say that you do not currently 'want' anything else.

There is no need to worry about it.  The condition is always temporary and will soon pass.  Almost before you know it, you will read an article, pass a store window, or just have a fond memory and your 'want' will be back in full force and active.

I remained in that "wantless" condition for months last year, then bought several pistols within a few weeks.

I finally bought the North American Arms mini-revolver. It has taken many years but I have always wanted an NAA mini-revolver. I told myself "That is the last handgun I would buy." Every time I saw one at my LGS, I just couldn't bring myself to buy one because I had other handguns I needed more. I bought the Sidewinder 22 magnum with the bird heads grip and swing out cylinder. I was surprised at how easy this gun is to shoot and how accurate it is a close range. (0-10 feet).  At this time, I cannot see the need for more.....so I think I'll start trading in some of my safe queens for new safe queens.

I hadn't planned on "wanting" another pistol, but now that I have my HCP, my mind has changed.  I really don't know why.  I have a .45 ACP XDs and a Keltec P32, already.  But dropped the wife and daughter to a baby shower in Maryville and and then swung by Gunny's and then Bill's Outpost (this is a hidden gem here!!!) and looked at a number of small CC firearms. I have to admit that I have never been a fan of of M&Ps but I really liked the Shield I dry fired and also the Cancik TP9??? I also like the looks of the Ruger LCRx with the 3" barrel.  So... what to do? :)

I bought my wife a Ruger LCRX in 22 mag with a 3" barrel. I keep waiting for Ruger to put a 3" barrel on the 357 mag LCRX. And I keep waiting for Ruger to make a 22LR LCRX with a 4" barrel. I just got a Smith 66-8 with the 2 3/4" barrel to go with my 642. I would REALLY LOVE to find a Smith Night Guard in .357. And an older 586 L-Comp. And a Ruger Wiley Clapp GP100 and SP101. I really think you need all of those too.:biglol::angel:

Wheel guns. Do you shoot .357 loads in those short barrel Smiths? Is it like some people say? "Too much recoil and too hard to shoot accurately" I carry a model 36 3".

I wish Ruger would come out with a LCR .357 in a 3" barrel too!  Used to have a S&W 19 with the 2 3/4" barrel.  It was a good shooting pistol!

I do. I've shot full house magnums in a J-frame 640 and it didn't get "out of hand." The 640 wasn't as accurate as the 686 2 1/2 though.

I have both a 2" and 3" SP with improved grips. They are  hefty and the overall shape don't make for a small footprint.

Prefer .38/.38+p, but no issues with shooting .357. Due to the retort, I prefer .38 over .357 for SD.

Same here for the most part. I've been using Underwood cast lead hollow point 158 grain in the plus p load. I've liked it enough that it has earned a place as a woods walking load.

      As ya'll know, i get manias from time to time... Ya would think as old as i am, this would finally stop... This one is the 10MM long slide mania... 
      What are your collective thoughts and experiences on the new Remington 1911 R, Springfield XDM 5.25, Glock 40, or custom build 10MM pistolas..?  I've got 2 Glock 20' s (...4.6" barrels, im thinkin...), but wuz thinkin a bit about the advantages of a longer slide n barrel...  At first glance, It looks ta me like buyin a complete " long slide " pistola will be about as cheap as buildin a custom long slide for one of my 20's... Whattday'all think..?
      Thanks in advance...

      PSA dropped a couple of big bombs at SHOT. First is that they are introducing a striker fired polymer pistol compatible with most 3rd gen Glock parts for $299 for the base, $350 for one with a threaded barrel, optic cut, and suppressor height sights. 

      In addition they, have announced that the PSA5, their MP5 clone, will be out this year. Projected price is not finalized, but still expected to be below $1200. This places it several hundred below it’s nearest MP5 clone competitors, and over $1500 lower than the just released HK SP5. 

       
      I swear, I’m not a paid spokesman or anything, but I am excited to see these product releases. PSA is really making some major moves right now that can have some serious market impacts with regards to pricing.

      I’m thinking about ordering this gun. But I’m curious about the blued finish and the Ruger site picture really doesn’t show it that well. Anyone have any good pictures of this gun that was purchased recently??
