I'm still around, just not had anything to say lately. Been doing some research on which Glock I'd like to pick up. Figure if I'm only going to own one pistol may as well get a good one. Tax Return time next year I'll pick up something, not sure what right now. May be a Glock, Taurus or ???

Just a cotton pickin' minute here. Whose tax return money you gonna be spendin', Frank? I thought you've been unemployed the whole year. And, why would you want a plastic pistol anyway?

I'm just curious, Frank. Do you have any interest in acoustic guitars anymore or do the other hobbies just motivate you more?

If I can make nice with my wife I think she'll let me pick up something for Home Defense/CCW since I think even she feels a little "helpless" without a gun around the house.

Next musical instrument on my list is another Turbo Twenty in C to complete my humble set of TurboHarps.

Then I've got a few things that I'd like to get for the truck like a floor shifter, shocks, Limited Slip Diff so both tires will hook instead of having that "one wheel peel" going on. Maybe a new transmission pan with the tubes thru it to help keep the fluid cool and help seal better to the trans so it'll stop leaking. Stock stamped pans suck.

Then maybe I'll pick up another acoustic guitar or maybe I'll go back to electric bass. Depends on how my fingers feel. A couple knuckles on my left hand have been giving me a bit of pain as of late. Don't know if it's arthritis or what.

Either way I'll be around, may not post much but I'll be here.

Bass would allow you to gig more often...thus, bring in more $$$ for your other interests... :idea:

 

'Course, I guess a Glock (and a ski mask) might, too... :eek:

Skip the Glock and get a Smith & Wesson M&P (in the caliber of your choice). I personally think the 9mm is the best choice, which is the M&P9.

Depends on what you want to have.

I am a certified pistol marksman and shooting instructor and pistols are handy, but you need a LOT of skill and even more practice to operate one of those things without being a danger to yourself and the environment.

For close quarters combat and protection, there is nothing better than a handy shotgun with some buckshot. You just have to aim roughly in the right direction and the short barrels will spread the charge sufficiently. Using a pump action or semi will give you more sustained firepower than the standard old style double-barrel, but IMHO if you need more than the two barrels of buckshot, you're in a situation in which a Glock wouldn't help, either.

So true...for home security, anyone who can get past my Danes and my son's Rotts meets up with either my or my wife's 12-gauges

This is mine. The law requires that it be over 18"...mine is 18-1/8", 'cause I'm a law-abiding citizen.

 

My wife has what used to be called a stage-coach gun...a bit longer, with a full stock. She finds it more comfortable than one w/ a pistol grip.

I call BS on your whole post.

 

To wit: "aim roughly in the right direction and the short barrels will spread the charge sufficiently". You don't get any significant spread in CQB scenarios. The benefit of a shotgun is stopping power.

My home defense system is pretty simple. I don't like guns, but I do own one.

 

It starts with this.

And if it fails I do have this.

That as well, but even in CQB, the probability of at least a few buckshots hitting the supposed target is higher than if you just punch a 9mm hole into the air.

Important rule to remember:

Do not bring a baseball bat to a gun fight.

 

In my home, in the dark, I stand a better chance of hitting an intruder than a bullet has of hitting me. :thu:

Ma home defence system is ma hands

 

Thing is above lads use a gun or rifle whatever even the baseball bat

 

you can kill someone and then you are left in a stinking madhole

When you said you preferred 12 gauge I thought you meant guitar strings :lol:

 

I didn't have you down as the gun owning type Terry.

 

Over here most normal everyday people haven't even seen a real gun. I have seen some shotguns when I've been Pheasant shooting with my dad, I didn't have a go though.
