i got a ruger sr 40 and Taurus pt 100 both are very accurate
As far as dedicated .40 S&W's ...
2 p229's with absolutely GREAT triggers for EDC.
S&W p226 Legion ... NIB
2 S&W 4006 (one CHP, one not, both with nice Hogue grips)
Another p229 used only for practice.
2 Gen 1 G27's and a Gen 1 G22
I also have 2 S&W M&P full size that were originally .40's but now sport 9mm bbls.
Looks alot like mine Schlegel, also in 40SW. Usually, the BHP Practcal model I've seen has blued safety and slide release, nice to see one like mine. Really good shooter, but I bobbed my hammer. It bites!
One is none, two is one!
These are my only two Glocks at this time, dumped three Glock 17's for those two and a Colt Combat Commander .45acp.
Never knew S&W made a P226 Legion!!!
I'm a big fan of the .40, it's been my favorite cartridge for a number of years even though I've tried about everything out there at one point in time (or 3 or 4 times) or another. I pack/carry a G27 and my bigger .40 is a G22, both Gen4 models. I have one of the 4" Springfield EMP models on layaway, just to try something a bit different.
No, .40 SUCKS, remember? James Yeager said so. 10mm is a far manlier cartridge. And while everyone is at it, I'll buy up your crappy .40 for considerably less than what you paid for it because it sucks and you don't want it taking up valuable space.
Well, You learn something new every day, I'm happy to take you to school!
I have a Ruger SR40. I've had it for a few years. I gave about $100 more then than they are selling for these days. That is a Simply Rugged holster for it. Its a decent gun. I don't shoot it much any more after acquiring others that I enjoy more.
Here are my two .40’s,
My Beretta 8040 and my Glock 27.Both are great shooting handguns and both used as CCW’s Never would sell either.
The revolver is my S&W Model 36
What I have:
A few of these...
What I want:
One of these chambered in .40...
On my night stand for about 20 years now , I take it to the range only once, every month or two, so not of my range guns.
Bought this SIG 229 new in 1996 and it has never had a failure of any kind. I am not a big 40 S&W fan, but really love this gun.
does the others shoot more accurate then the ruger sr40? because mine is tight on target the original trigger 7/6.5 lbs does hurt the grouping if yah put a ghost 3.5 lb
in i bet you would go back to shooting it more
that couger 8040 needs some grip to it like this guy did to his
I'm not a big fan of .40S&W, but I have a few guns in it: Beretta 96D Brigadier, H&K USP-C, H&K P2000SK, M&P full size. I think the 96D is probably the most accurate, even though it is the heaviest and has an insanely long trigger pull. However, I like the H&K P2000SK most as it fits the hand nicely and looks good.
I've been super happy with my hk usp 40c. I also have a pair of eaa witness full steel wonder finished 10mm pistols with 40 barrels. Feeding reliability hasn't been great on those.
If I got another 40 I would consider the full sized hk usp 40.
what its a single action after the first shot my Taurus pt 100 is a close clone to it and has a nice trigger pull what the heck??
Negative. The 96D Brigadier is DAO and has no manual safety and has a hammer that is flush with the rear of the slide. Basically, every trigger pull being long is the defacto safety. The non-D variant in the YouTube that you posted is DA/SA.
oh my bad its a hammerless
double action only
i didnt know they made them
Yep, that's more like it. I prefer the DA/SA and have a 92FS DA/SA that has a great SA trigger, but you can often get the 96D models for a good price because many are used police guns.
Beretta, similar to H&K, has tons of sub-models/variants for both the 92 and 96 series of pistols (safeties, no safeties, decocker only variants, etc). It gets confusing!
ill stick to Taurus pt 92 then like my two tone i paid only 300$ at a pawn shop like new only 50 rounds threw it max
My P229, P226, Kahr k40. I'm ok with 3 of them.
I have a pair of Glock 22's gen 3
glock 23 gen 3
glock 27 gen 3
M&P40 and a
walther PPQ m2 5"
Gen3 Glock 22/23/27 with 40-9 conversion barrels.
What I want is 40S&W's bigger brother, 10mm to shoot in Glock 20SF.
Since this post I have made changes and now these are the only four handguns I own.
