I like my xd service 45 quite well and I truly love my cz75 9mm.
I feel the Springfield XD .40 Compact version, is the best all around gun. It is very accurate, Very reliable, and concealable and has great stopping power. There is plenty of ammunition available; making shooting it affordable.
It's a toss up for me. I've got a beautiful Colt Series 70 Gov. Model 1911 that has never let me down, it's a real hunk of gun! It's a bit heavy for daily carry though. That's where my second choice comes into play, a Glock Model 23. Light weight, completely reliable and a solid hitting 40 S&W round, 14 of them. Please don't make me pick just one, pleeeeeaaaassse?
I carry either my XD 45 5" Tatical or my Mil Spec Springfield 1911 or my Springfield 1911 Black Stainless every day all year.
I love the feel of a big gun and my XD 45 has 13+1 and 1911's have 8 + 1 plenty of shots to get the bad guys with.
What do you carry them in?
I have all my holsters and belts made by Black Hills Leather
bhlstore.com in Laredo Texas his quality is the best and prices are great. All my holsters are the BH99 open top.
They run $94.90 and sometimes he has a 20% off specials for people that sign up on his web site. I have had him make 5 holsters and 4 belts for me.
Check him out and I promise you, you will love his work.
Remeber you get what you pay for and why put a expensive weapon in a cheap holster.
Let me know.
i got a Kimber Stainless ultra compact II and i love it so far...but i was wonderin if anyone here knows how goood the customer service is at Kimber. i have heard its good and ull get ur gun back within a week or so..im just wondering...any replies much appriciated
Thank you Tex for the tip on Black Hills Leather. I'll take a look at his site. It takes a real artist to work with leather the way these people can. Thanks again!
No Problem Tig,
Let me know what you think?
My first impression is some very well crafted holsters and belts. It's obvious that he/she/they can provide a shooter, lawman or concealed carrier anything they want.
The holsters are great I wear mine every day and the belts are made to carry a gun so they are thick and 1.5" wide to hold the holster in place.
You will not be disappointed.
hey does anyone know about the Ruger SR9 im gonna get that if i dont find anything else when i go which is next month
I have held an sR9 but I have not shot one. It seems like a decent pistol. I would like to see other calibers and a compact version.
im a BIG fan of rugers my dad has a ruger .357 and a .44 and i love them both
the most all around -------hand gun its a .357. why it shoots more kinds and sizes of rounds end of discussion......o a 4 or 61/2 barral too.
I've been looking for 'the best all around handgun' for decades. I need a full size 45 for home & maybe Winter carry, that converts to an Ultra Lite for 98* Summer temps + changes to a 22 cal for range practice/varmints and converts to a mouse gun for those "gotta be concealed" times, etc., etc. LOL
Best 'caliber' might be more easily addressed.
If I ever found it, how to part with 5-10 different pistols?
I never looked for such a handgun and I certainly hope they never make such a thing. Because if they do I will have to come up with another reason to buy more guns.
Hey goanra, do you realize that makes you the Tiger Woods of pistols. You need some of that rehab!!!!!.
You need to put the crackpipe down henry. Just kidding a bit. The Beretta 92 is an old design one of the first wondernines and is being replaced just about everywhere. Money here says the XD won't even be given consideration toward the next military pistol. Top seed for that will probably be an H&K.
