How about a nice S&W M&P 1905 4th change..... Sistema colt...... get a Glock...... Ruger sp101.... Blackhawk....

October 23, 2003, 09:50 PM
I'm loaded up on Ruger Single actions.... I like the 1905 idea..

Is that a subliminal "get a glock?" :)

October 23, 2003, 09:56 PM
I have a hole in my pocket that $400 would fill nicely! Send a check or money order to....:D

G20 or rifle.

October 23, 2003, 09:59 PM
Sorry Mike this $400 has to be applied to a gun or it will continue to melt down to the core of the earth causing who knows what geological damage. :)

October 23, 2003, 10:06 PM
For me, it'd go toward a Glock 20 :D

October 23, 2003, 10:27 PM
Everybody needs a G20.
You don't have one yet?
Run, don't walk...

October 23, 2003, 10:38 PM
Hmmmm.... Maybe something from the CZ 75B series? :D

October 23, 2003, 10:40 PM

That occured to me but I already have a Jericho, I know I know, not a real CZ, but it's close and I want to spread out a bit more.

October 23, 2003, 10:41 PM
Anything but TUPPERWARE .... :D .... I think the 1911 would be a worthwhile option .....

Just don't like ..... TUPPERWARE .... and that's the end of it!

Sig 220 is an awfully good gun.
And that is a right decent price if in good shape.

However, think would go for a couple of older Smith wheels.

Add a little more to it and go get a CZ PO1 or PCR.
They are really cool!
If you can't wait, put one on layaway.
Just my $.02.
Or maybe an SP-101?

Also, I have dealt with CDNN before.
I haven't bought guns, but I have bought mags from them several times.
I did have some trouble with some BHP mags that I got from them, and I called them as soon as I noticed the problem.
They told me to just send them back and they would be replaced.
I did.
The day after I sent the mags back, my replacements showed up. That means that they sent them out before they even got the bad ones back.
Any place that will do that for a customer gets my support.
Lately, I have found myself in need of some more AK mags...

I'm amazed I'm even saying this, but get the <ack-gasp-gack> Glock 20. :evil:

First choice....get the G20. I have always had trouble warming up to GLOCKs. I've had 5 different GLOCKs, and sold them all after TRYIING to learn to shoot them and like them. Sold them all.

But I recently got a deal on a new G20, and absolutely love the thing. Get the G20. Find a

normal capacity mag, and have more power in your hand than most any other reasonably size pistol on the market.

Typical me, odd man in the group, sorry.

Need lessons, training, holsters, belt,mags, ammo, ammo supplies ?
Then I think guns, like old wheels.

I cant make my mind up between either.

cdnninvestments has good deal on steyr handguns and hk usp 40 and cz 40b.

looking at steyr M9 $277,HK usp 40 $399 blued/stainless for right handed and $399 for left stainless and $369 for left handed blued, cz 40b for $250 the cz40b will take 12 round eaa witness magazines for 12+1 capacity mags going for $19.99.

great deal on HK usp 40 though its full size and most info I find people prefer Sig of HK. wish I picked up Sig 2340 when they were going for $429.

Buy a buttload of ammo for a gun you already have :).

Just my .02,

Progressive press or bullet casting setup. Put anything left over (ha!) towards consumables. Shoot what you got _more_.

October 24, 2003, 12:24 PM
Get the glock 20, or the Sig 220.

October 24, 2003, 02:01 PM
From your list, I'd get either the G20 or the P220, whichever one calls to you the loudest! :D

$400 BUCKS you say!!!
Lets see, download the paperwork from ATFE for a type 03 FFL.
It costs $30.00 for 3 years. Wait @ 3 to 8 weeks. Now you can
have "toys" sent to your door. You have $370. left.
Aim has CZ52's on sale, for $99. each,add $10 for hand select!
So a pair of Exe. too new ones shipped to your door for @ $250,
give or take a tad!! Then order an Yugo sks for $119. shipped from them as well.
You wind up with 3 weapon that are just about new (if not new) to your door for $400 BUCKS.
A C&R is the best thing I've ever done to help me with my collection.
Take care

My used USP40 I got from CDNN was in like new condition, just to let you know...

October 24, 2003, 09:35 PM
Just a thought; buy a used SKS and a used Glock. Set the Glock out to 100 yards and shoot it with the SKS.:evil:

Springfield XD. Now.

I already have a Beretta but if you don't have a 92FS -- it's a sweet gun. Other than that, if I found a good used or new Glock or Argentine Sistema -- it'd be my pick. :D

See if you can find a Smith & Wesson Model 27. N-Frame .357s rule.

Just so you know, the Beretta 92 that SOG is offering for sale are not US versions. They are the European versions with the weird mag release at the bootom. Sorry I dont remember the name of it.

November 1, 2003, 10:08 PM
I'd make it 425-450ish and snag a used Beretta 92FS. I remember hearing somewhere that the SOG Berettas were the original model 92s, with quite a few differences from the FS, such as: right hand only controls, frame mount safety, and *possibly* a different magazine not compatible with the FS.

Police trade-in P226 or P220
