The Lounge>Off Season Lets Talk Guns, Part 2
HonestChieffan 11:58 AM 01-23-2011
Been a while since we had a guns n' ammo discussion.


Some of you are AR shooters Im sure. Im looking at a Colt 6920. Will be my first AR. Picked up a Glock this fall and really enjoy shooting it. Any feedback on that weapon?



Anyone else been in a buy/sell/trade mood with hardware?

If she can handle a 9mm, I would step up to the P239.

She can handle up to a .40.

She's not really allowed to carry while working so it has to be on the smaller side.

I have a carry in each those so I can choose to match my gun and holster depending on my boot color

I tried to make that sound as gay as possible

She can shoot anything really. I have a .45 Ruger (think it is the LCP, it's a small .45), a .40 S&W Sigma series, and a Ruger 9mm (the full size one). She's much more accurate with the larger calibers than the smaller ones.

Could you gun nerds give me a couple recommendations for a small purse carry gun? Open to .380,9, and .40. Needs to be small and dependable (some .380s have a rep for jamming all the time). Not looking for the cheapest deal around.
For a CCW piece with a single stack magazine:

.380 ACP
Ruger LCP
Ruger LC380
Glock 42
Sig Sauer P238

9mm
Ruger LC9, LC9S, or LC9S Pro
S&W Shield
Glock 43
Springfield XDS
Sig Sauer P938

.40 S&W
S&W Shield


With a double stack magazine:

Glock G26(9mm) or G27(.40 S&W)
Springfield XD Sub-Compact or XDM Compact (9mm or .40)
S&W M&P 9C or M&P 40C

I'd suggest a double action revolver. No need to rack a slide...just pull the trigger and it shoots. The Ruger LCR comes in quite a few calibers.

Just admit it. It's for your purse. Am I right? :-)

I almost never have my guns on me. I mostly go to the range and keep them in the house.

P238s are tiny, and the P239's aren't much larger. The only downside is that it is basically a tiny 1911, meaning you have to have it cocked to shoot quickly. Anyone that knows how to handle a handgun will have no problem, but a beginner might have trouble.

A good old .38 revolver wouldn't be a bad choice, either. I concealed a S&W J-Frame for 2 years and loved it. No safety, no bullshit, just pull it out and pull the trigger. The built-in Crimson Trace laser was nice.


Stay away from the LC9s. My wife had an Ruger LC9, and hated it. I hate that piece of shit, too. The slide is hard as hell and it kicks like it's shooting 50 cals.

Brand new Ruger LCP for $199.99. If it didn't have the raspberry-colored frame, I'd get one for myself.

I wish they were California legal. Too short when collapsed.

Thanks. She knows how to handle a gun. I had to teach her to make her comfortable with having them in the house when I got my first one.

New guns being made in 'Murica!:

I really like the FIST concept, basically, if you have to pull the gun out and press it into your attacker when shooting, this gun is designed to handle that and function well.
