    so many guns, so little time. i have launched into the study of the .357 long barrel revolver, with a .22 old six for cheapness. range opens in a week or so. suppose i have to shoot Chromie or languish in public. Considering the mag. for cc duty, when it comes, in the classic Dirty Harry style. Oldschool i have joined the arms race.

    thanks guys, Im proud to be a member! now for the hard part, fullsize 1911, or upgrade my reloading gear so I can actually afford to shoot. Heading to Cabelas on Saturday, we'll have to wait and see what I come back with. I have to say though, my rock chucker press is reeealllllly slow compared to an L-N-L ap
    or a Dillon 650......

    Don't say 1911 so loudly. McX's ears may hear you. Then again, he's old, so he might not.

    Congratulations

    Congratulations on your new Glock .45 - While I have heard many nice things about Glocks, my personal preference is the Springfield XD which I have in both 9mm and .45ACP - but that is just me. Your mileage may vary.

    I have an XD in .40 and I love it! It is just to big to conceal IMO.

    NONSENSE - I have been carrying my Springfield XD-9 (and alternating it with my Springfield XD-45) as my primary concealed carry firearm since August of last year (when I moved from the Springfield Model 1911 Ultra-Compact as my primary concealed carry firearm). I use a Blackhawk pancake holster (Model 21) and carry my two extra magazines on my weak side in a Cabela's mag holster. All covered with a long sleeve zippered sweater that I do not zipper up because it adequately covers my concealed firearm. (Backup is a Kel-Tek P-32 in a pocket holster.)
