Unless you've been in the military you're not familiar with the "pull the pin" thing.

Racking a shotgun is PRIMAL fear. It's the equivalent of seeing a snake...it appeals to your basic instinct...

No, but I DID inherit a Gibson Les Paul Standard from a really close friend that died. That and a Mesa-Boogie amp.

Use to see them for sale on base at the px for over $1,000, that was years ago, probably around $14, $1500 now a days?

Either way, sweeet piece.

Mine was a private sale... $1100 for gun and 200 rounds of 240 gr ammo.
If you want the pimp version, leopard spotted, tiger striped or titanium/gold plated, they can get around 2 grand.

Haha!
Not much into the gold plated pimp type here.
Never owned a 44 mag, had a 44 special made by Rossi but I got rid of it.
I carry the 9 mil, big believer of first and most rounds on target wins the gun fight.
I do have a 45 cal at bed side though.

Well, I'm sure it's a beautiful one, sorry to hear about your friend but I can't think of a better way to remember someone.

So I'm thinking of expanding my little arsenal.

At lunch I'm going to shoot a Sig 229 and an h&k usp (compact)

Anyone have any experience with either? Recommendations between the two?

(I already have the newer compact models from H&K (P30 and 2000))

Smithfield XDS 9mm. Light, carryable, and you can get it in a .40 or .45 if you want. But the 9mm is more carryable and has interchangeable magazines if you want more rounds.

Otherwise, shotgun for home defense. No need to aim in the dark. Just destroy everything on that side of the room. Forget the pumps. If someone is walking into your bedroom at night it's too late for scare tactics. Double barrel. Pull both triggers.

I’ve shot my buddy’s XD and didn’t care for it much...I just don’t think it’s engineered as well as a Sig or H&K...and the grip wasn’t that comfortable for my hand.

I already have 2 shotguns — I live in Texas :)



I’m looking for a good weapon just to have fun with atbthe range. I keep one shotgun and a full size H&K in my bedroom for home defense

I like the 229, personally.

I also have a Taurus J frame 38 Super +P that is loads of fun at the range. Sounds like a ****ing cannon.

I have the Sig SP2022 (the P229’s polymer twin) and love it. It’s just fun to shoot. The P229 has more options and is a great shot as well.

You didn't ask me, but I'll interject!

I started with a Remmington 870 that I received as a gift. Ever since I bought my own Benelli, I've been sold. I have a SuperNova, M4, and a Super Black Eagle 3.

I LOVE Benelli shotguns.

edit: Not a Benelli, but he's my Huglu that I had made while I was in Turkey.

My dad gave me an old browning BSS from the mid to late 70's. I still have that. Then I have a modern ATA Venza 12.

Honestly I don't shoot either all that often. I have a membership at an indoor range that is pistol and rifle only. And I'm not really a hunter. I might shoot them every 10 to 15 months when I go with my buddy to his outdoor range.

------------------------------



From today:

I loved the Sig 229. Great feel to it...fit my hand well. Will definitely consider purchasing it.

The range didn't have a USP Compact so I shot the full size. It was OK. I like my VP9 better, it's smoother.

I can’t comment on a Bernelli; but from the few times I’ve been skeet shooting, I enjoyed using a 20-gauge a hell of a lot more than I did a 12-gauge. What’s your experience?

i've only done skeet shooting twice (both with a 12)... i sucked at it. the last time I went, I went with a colleague and his 25ish year old daughter (both avid shotgun users and hunters)...she wiped the floor clean with me. LOL. i had a fun though (albeit frustrating)

An over/under is the best IMO for shooting skeet. Baretta makes great O/U shotguns at a lower cost than a Benelli. A lot of the best Benelli guns like the Black Eagle or the Super Vinci are gas reloaders, which don't fare well on lighter loads that you would shoot clays/skeet with. The SuperSport is allegedly good with clays/skeet.

I've used everything from a Huglu O/U, remington 870/Super Nova pump, to my BEIII. Like I said, depends on your price point.
