My cousin's friend who served in the USMC a few years ago told me that he was a General's bodyguard and he got to carry a tiger-striped .50 AE Desert Eagle . He also told me about how he had to cut a guy's throat with a bayonet because the guy was on top of him and his gun hand was pinned to his chest, but I'm pretty sure that's actually true because it wasn't a "yeah I totally just slit a dude's throat". It was more like "I almost died and killing the guy was so traumatic that it's one of the causes of my PTSD"

My friend was in special forces (para rescue) and met an operator who carried a ruger blackhawk. The guy had it in a thigh rig and would draw, finger on trigger, and fan to shoot a round, saying this was faster than other guns. e was an entry man with a PG 870. He thought it was the stupidest thing hes ever seen but the guy was still alive so......

As to 1911s, there good, but only after you spend so much money on them, and any pistol that needs to cost 1500 dollars or have a "reliability job".....

Ill go with a SIG or CZ. Maybe even a FN. But 1911s are very safe, they got manual and grip safeties and you need to be a complete dumbass to shoot yourself with one.

I heard another glock basher say that glocks suck since you need to pull trugger to disassemble. I HATE glocks and will even defend glock on this, there is no excuse to disregard basic gun safety which requires unloading. This is a human error issue not desighn fault.

I have the carbine, and it's a fun, cheap, gun to shoot. If you accept what it is (a 9mm plinker) it's a great value. If I have to use a gun to defend my life, something has gone wrong. If, out of all of my guns, I have to use the carbine, something has REALLY gone wrong.
