Nice Ruger! I had a GP100 that was a great shooter. Can't beat them.

I'm a sucker for good old S&W steel. Just picked up a
Smith & Wesson 629-6 .44 mag (4 in.) from 2012
Only fired at the factory.

Sent my old barrel and action off a few months ago to have the old carbon fiber barrel removed and a new stainless fluted barrel made. Also ordered a break that was compatible with my QDL suppressor so I could use it on two rifles. As soon as the temps rise to a decent range I will be out testing this mother.

Picked up a lightly used Walther PPQ this week. The store let me do a five round test fire with their range ammo before purchase. Shot a 3/4" group at 25 feet with the dang thing. I am incapable of doing better than that with ANY handgun. SOLD!

Had a warmer day this past Wednesday so I made it out to the range. Our range looks pretty rough after a long winter of nobody repairing things around there. Looking forward to some good time on the bench.

Anybody got anything new?

Glock just announced their new spokesperson: Chuck Norris! A fitting successor to the late R. Lee Ermey.

Can't wait for the next batch of commercials.

I like shopping in the used gun market. For the last couple years or so, pre-owned .40S&W caliber handguns have dropped to bargain barn prices. Last Saturday in a private sale, picked up a Glock model 22 in really nice shape for $300. Late Gen3 with RTF-2 exterior. A grip frame plug and extended slide release had already been installed.

Couple shops around here have all but stopped stocking new handguns in .40. Hardly anyone wants 'em.

Good deal on the model 22 and I find it funny how the prices have changed on .40 cals in the last 2 years. Seems the lip service shooters all wanted them and then found out the extra stopping power comes with a little more recoil. I personally like a metal frame .40 better than polymer, but both are fun for the true hobbyist/shootist.

I reload, so "tailoring" my practice ammo to recoil a little less isn't a problem. I had divested myself of .40 caliber handguns (except for the Browning Hi Power, all steel) a few years back. Passed up several good deals on used Glocks, S&Ws, etc. in .40 since then. This model 22 was just a "can't get hurt financially" thing. So far it shoots fine, just a little jumpier than its 9mm counterpart. Nature of the beast.

Well dang did I kill this long running thread, or am I the one keeping it alive? Oh well here's another snort of narcan to keep it going..

Any of you have any of the Canik 9mm handguns? I've waded into the brand in the last few months. Most everything about them seems fine, especially the price point. Only one complaint about them from me: They are set up with very stiff recoil springs. Apparently they are designed to be fed 124 grain "Nato" ammo, which is +P. Or any other +P stuff. The spring will soften up after a few hundred rounds of shooting. But if you use standard pressure ammunition for break in, you'll have some malfunctions (stovepipes) to contend with.

Go shoot a few. If you have friends with firearms test out what ever they have or rent a few different ones from a local range, if they have rentals.

Hello. In Massachusetts you are somewhat limited as to what handguns you're allowed to own/possess/carry, correct? It may be helpful if you would outline those restrictions for us.

Ill be attending the Sig academy next month. Taking handgun 101 and 102. Sig trains on the 320. I guess that's a good place to start.

I'm not 100% sure what is or isn't Ma compliant yet. There's a range close by that rent by the caliber. $25 plus ammo and I can try them all. I LEO friend recommended I try all the 9mm

I carry the Sig P220 as my every day carry. I love it, but I agree with Greg, shoot a bunch and see what feels right. Definitely a very personal thing, which guns feel right.

8lug, that sounds like a good plan, seriously. For that $25, yeah, try out the brands and models that feel best in your hands. Also, 9mm is the right caliber to try first, easier to shoot and less expensive to "feed". Plus, with the hotter self defense ammo, it's very capable of doing its job.
