Just Got Back From the Gun Show (Again)

WOW!

You talk about nuts. A hour wait just to get in. Anyway, a lot going on. Wall to wall people.

Some good deals, some not so good deals, some rip offs.

I walked the show and caught up with my "go to" guys and they hooked me up with a few new toys. I saved around $500 off retail total.


Glock 19 with nightsights. Yea, I already have a few 19s a some other models, but come on, you cant have too many Glocks. I just opened my 15 year old 19 the other day and it looks brand new with basically no real care to it. I am sold for life. Get em while you can.



Ruger Hunter 7" .22 Mark III - Yea baby. The staple of target shooting (under $1000)



Smith and Wesson 638 Airweight .38+P Revolver (The bullets weigh more than the gun.) It literally weighs half as much loaded as the smallest Glock.



Picked up 2000 rounds of .22 high velocity for my new toy and some other stuff. Overall a good show.

I almost picked up a bullet proof vest, but I forgot about it after walking the show.

PS - There were AR-15s, mags, accessories available. They were not cheap, but not 2 or 3 times original retail either. Nice $900-$1000 ARs were going for like $1200-$1500.

I picked up some ammo and stuff. Overall, good show for me.

So what was the consensus among the gun guys about where this country is headed as far as rights are concerned?

As you know, I have an HK45 and its nice, but I love my Glocks. The 26 is hard to beat and if you are going to wear it (not pocket) then you put a 15 round mag in and it gives you your pinky area and 15 rounds. 15 rounds in a subcompact!

I also find it harder and much more expensive to find HK mags, accessories, etc.

I went to buy a Walther PPS NOT a Glock. Felt real nice, just couldnt deal with paying more than a Glock and had problems pulling it out of my pocket because its taller than the Glock26 I use as a pocket gun. Their rep is 80/20 so I thought hard.

I looked at everything before and during the show. I looked at a Kahr, but their rep is 50/50 at best.

I thought about another KelTec but in 9mm but honestly, my .380 kinda scares me. Their rep is 50/50 at best.

I looked at the XDs, not much different than Glock, why change. Everyone tries to say how its as good as Glock. Great, then whats wrong with Glock?

I wanted a SLIM 9mm in a Glock 26 size. Does not exist.

Then I thought about my SP101 Ruger .357 and how it was fine but too heavy. The LCR is too new and the LCP is recalled. Smith had the answer. .38s are no joke and 5 rounds is better than nothing. Thinner overall than a glock and light as can be. No safety and not one in the chamber. We will see.

But yea, Glocks are just so darn hard to beat overall. Especially with the magazines and accessories available. I must have 50 mags now that fit all my 9mm glocks regardless of model ranging from 10-33 rounds. Just hard too beat.

I almost bought a Taurus Judge. lol. It is just cool. But common sense said "you need to slow down here son."

Nice! Just curious, but why do you have so many Glock 19's?

Someone posted a promotional video for the Judge here a while ago. Was it you? That seemed like a pretty solid self-defense/anti-carjacker gun.

Question for you:
Are boobs and hands polarly charged, thus causing the inevitable joining of the two? If so are some breasts simply charged backwards?

On a scale from 0 to 24...wait, 3 to 24, where 6 is the lowest and 12 is the highest, how freaking high re you right now?

She's got you high, and you don't even know yet.

Not a fan. Shot one awhile back....its trying to combine characteristics of Glocks, M&P's and XD's into one gun. Only problem is it fails at all of it, combining the flaws of each one, sadly.

Rugers best guns are their .22's and the GP101 revolver. The GP is built like a friggin tank, and is awesome.

I'm a glock guy myself, and if I could only have 1 handgun it'd be the glock 19. They are THAT good. Sigs, HK's, S&W's have come and gone from my collection but the 19 stays.
