    Hey guys, haven't seen a for sale forum, nor any rules about OpenCarry.org not wanting us to do business with one another, so I figured I'd throw this out there. If this noob is over the line, let me know...


    Anyway, since there's a bunch of locals here, I'm looking for a Glock 27. Don't care if it's NIB or used, but I'd prefer it to be in decent shape (excessive holster wear is a turn off for me). I've got my heart set on a O.D. frame. Will also consider a G33, but I'd prefer the .40 for penetration fears and because it's a popular round with LEO's.

    If you got one, know a guy, seen one around in a case, etc, let me know! All state laws will apply for sellers offering to ship from Vegas, local sellers in Reno get to meet me FTF

    32 people died at Virginia Tech from gunshots wounds inflicted by a Glock 19(9mm) and a .22 target pistol... You don't need a .40 to kill a person...but I'll see if anyone I know has one.

    lol I figured someone would comment on my comment there.

    My standard carry is a mix of .380 and .38 Special. My home defense/winter ccw and open carry piece is a G17 9mm (I do have a .357 Sig G31 slide when I want a hotter round).

    Reason I want the .40 is because it will end up in the desert carry rotation, and I'd feel better against a mountain lion with something more potent than the 9mm. I completely agree 9mm is enough, but this is also an excuse to add a caliber to my collection... :celebrate

    I recommend a 12ga shotgun for both home defense and against a mountain lion. Sure, it holds fewer rounds, cannot be concealed (easily), and would probably raise more eyebrows OC than a handgun, but for knock down power and wound diameter, its the way to go. Plus they're cheaper than Glocks!

    Now that being said, my carry piece is a .40, a Glock 23 in fact, usually with a 27 hiding nearby as a backup.

    But at home by my nightstand, you'll find my trusty Mossberg if someone breaks in.

    Nice gun! And a capacity for 7 3" shells...not bad...is that 6+1? Ever see the 1 3/4" shells? Mossbergs have unsupported chambers so I can't try them out in my gun. I don't think there's a huge sacrifice in power, but you can fit 10 shells in the magazine instead of 6, which could be an advantage in certain situations.

    See them on Midway at http://tinyurl.com/3ocx6b

    Thanks bro. That's about what I'm finding them for up here new. I'll just keep my eye out for something to come along, whether it be NIB when I get impatent or just happen to come across one in the paper.

    Ok, so this thread can be done now... I was at Sportsman's Warehouse tonight, and a G27 (regular black frame) followed me home...


    Best part about it was the fact that we are in Nevada. Walked in around 7pm (way too late for Mrs. Brady), got the gun, the two mags that came with it, a mid size magazine for back up, a 33 round 9mm mag and bullets.... ALL IN ONE BAG! And all with my G17 concealed under my jacket. I love this state, A LOT! :celebrate

    The best I have is a reciept from Walmart with shotgun shells and beer on the same tab... at about 3am. Just for comedic value.

    I was looking for something NASCAR related to add, but just couldn't find anything at the time.

    I never thought of that... I'll have to add a few packs of jerky and a camo bikini for the girlfriend on the next gun purchase... lol
