Alright, it's been awhile for this thread, but I've just added something

I got a Glock 43. It's for summer carry and for times I needed to just get a gun to go. Smaller and more manageable than the larger G19 I've been carrying.

I've added night sights and Taran Tactical +2 and +3 base plates for carrying and so far, it's been awesome.

Been carrying it in an IWB holster made by On Your 6 Design.

I'm not a Glock guy mind you but sounds pretty good.

As for me, I might soon be finally getting my first piece (of my very own). Will be scoping out all the places around here over the next week or so. Leaning to a shotgun right now, but if I see a decent handgun for the right price, well.. Would have liked to wait for the next gun show here but that's not 'til August. Bah.

I'll certainly let ya guys know in due course. Will finally be nice to 'join the club', heh.

Congrats on that one. I've got a similar setup, running Truglo tritiums and a Bladetech iwb. Hides regardless of what I'm wearing, and I sit around 140.

Seems to love 124 grain defense ammo, I've put some solid groups down with Hornady custom.

Hit the range with it yet?

I carry mine in an IWB holster made by On Your 6 Design. Really nice holster. I got Trijicon HD sights on. I carry with Winchester PDX-1 +P.

I carry mine at around the 4 o clock position.

It works well at the range with no problems so far. The extended base plates had no malfunctions after 100 rounds. I had a box of surplus ammo which 1 having a light primary strike, but it could be just the round because the second time, it worked.

With the +2 extension I carry with, it really feels like a G26 sliced in half. With the +3 extension as my spare, it feels like a G19 sliced in half and I could still hide it pretty well under a shirt. With my G19, I've always practiced making sure all my shots hit dead center to put a threat down fast, but now with significantly less rounds, I needed to practice even more so. There cannot be a single miss or ineffective hit on a body when you shoot a small gun like this. Thankfully, this thing shoots with the uncontrollablity of a bigger gun and it is awesome.

Just picked up a RIA 1911 GI for $400.

It might not be a top of the line pistol but it looks like it will get the job done.

I think I am finally saving up money so I can have my dream collector gun. An M1 Garand

A dream collector gun that is also a good "Get off my lawn" gun. In the movies anyhow.

That's one of 'em I consider a piece of real history as well as a quite viable firearm. Very good, man.

I got a Winchester 1300 Defender to replace the one I traded for that broke-dick Redhawk (that Ruger broke MORE then refused to fix, by the way) to help out a family friend. Good thing is, it's in very good shape; bad thing is, I'm a bit tall for basically everything that doesn't have a pistol grip so I'm going to have to figure something out

I'm looking around for good prices. If anybody has ideas, drop a link for me.
