Been trying to figure out which side arm I want to buy. i have 30 days left on my license to get a hand gun (because this state sucks). I know what I want to get, but i want to get some suggestion.
I want a .40 cal that is a fact. It is possibly the best bullet for stopping power and for price. I don't know if I want a Glock 22, Sig P229, or HK USP in .40.
Any other suggestions.
I heard the new Gen4 Glock 22 is pretty awesome. I don't know anything about the other 2. I myself am probably going to get the glock pretty soon.
I have four suggestions for you. I own one of each of these, and have put many rounds through them.. Love all of them
Sig P226 is a great gun. Accurate as hell, and work all the time everytime.
Springfield XDM .40 caliber I love it.
S&W M&P .40. this is a great gun. To my knowledge it doesnt have much field service behind it to gie it a lot of feed back. I have used mine a lot though, and its just as dependable as any pistol Ive ever shot. My only negative feed back for it is that its really top heavy. You really need to practice with it a lot to get consistant with it.
Glock 22 great pistol, can't really say anything bad about it. The only thing I don't care for is the feel of the grip, and the sights. If you upgrade the sights its a way better pistol.
I'm with you on the Glock 22. Had one for a while, but didn't like the grip either, that's what I use a Glock 23 which is the compact model in .40 S&W. Trijicon night sights are a must though; hate the factory sights.
I had a S&W M&P 40 for a while myself and while it was reliable, I didn't like the trigger on it. To me it felt mushy and didn't have a crisp reset like the Glock does.
I agree about the trigger reset on the smith. I upgraded my trigger. I reduced the trigger put from 7lbs to 4 lbs. It makes the reset more crisp. I like a lighter trigger pull it make it easier for me to acquire my target with less reset time. As far as the trigger mush goes, that seems to go away after the trigger mods. Im not really sure what caused it, you would think with a lighter trigger pull that it would get more mushy. It doesnt though, makes a really great gun with a couple of mods. I use it as a carry gun a lot of time, when I want a little more ass behind my shots.
Browning Buckmark- headshot after headshot, unstopable!
My side are would be a Glock 17.
9mm isn't the most common law enforcment round anymore. .40 calibe took that spot about 5 years ago. I do agree that 9mm is very common round, but considering its lack of stopping power I would go with the .40 cal.
Thats good, cause the P30 can be chambered in .40 S&M. I guess I'd go with that then.
i still have my IWI Baby Eagle in .40 S&W. my first pistol and supposedly with a polygonal barrel allows it to hit like its one caliber higher than what's chambered, *i have not tested against other .40 pistols* unofficially i have owned it since i was 16, officially i have owned it since 18 and its only ever jammed on me twice...both times my fault.......
