    The Glock 19 9mm.

    It's a ugly pistol, almost feels like a toy gun and sounds like a stapler when it's dry fired.

    There will be no pride of ownership with this ugly duckling but you can count on it to fire in almost any situation and that alone counts for a lot.

    I own one and it's reliable, compact and lightweight.
    It holds 15 +1 rounds of ammo. It will also take the 17 and 33 round magazines.

    It does not do everything great but it does everything good and lots of people will admit to that even if they don't like it.

    My vote goes to the only 9mm left in my collection the FNP-9. It is hands down the best 9mm for me, and I have tried a boat load (Glock 19, S&W, Kel Tec, XD, M&P, CZ, Ruger, Inter, Star, Beretta, Kimber...etc). It is by far the most accurate 9mm I have ever owned and I doubt anybody could buy it. Two I have wanted to try are the BHP and the S&W revolver that doesnt need moon clips.

    Go buy the nicest used Ruger P-85 you can find, hopefully one that looks like it's not been dragged behind a truck.

    Add a case of ammo.

    When you're don'e shooting all that you'll either love it or hate it.

    BHP. I own and CC several. They can be obtained for a reasonable price. Ultra reliable, accurate and you can work on them your self should you want to with a hammer and a couple of nails for punches...

    Just curious. Is there something wrong with Gen 4 glocks? I noticed most people voted gen 3.

    CZ-75 (SP-01 variant, manual safe)

    Simply put, out of the box I consider it to be one of the very best 9mm guns I have ever owned or fired (out of MANY). With a little work it becomes my unquestionable favorite.

    Also, I detest the glock 19. It doesn't fit well in my hands at all.

    another +1 for the CZ 75. I own one and if I could carry it for my duty weapon I would. I put them just under a 1911 as far my favorite guns. They point very well and are very accurate.

    CZ 85 combat. Nicer trigger pull. CZ all the way.

    There was a recall on all Gen 4 Glocks EXCEPT the G26 and G27's.

    There were Failure to Eject and maybe Failure to Feeds among them due to a faulty recoil spring/guide rod assembly.

    To my knowledge, the issue has been dealt with and there are no other issues to date.

    If you have a Gen 4 and have experienced any problems, or even if you haven't, you can have a new Guide Rod Assembly sent to you from Glock at any time. Might have to send your gun in, not sure.

    Gen 3's are tried and true. Most have 'never' had a single issue in multiple thousands of rounds and years of trouble-free functioning.

    I know because my Gen 3 Glock 19 has fired everything I've fed it, without a single hiccup one, throughout numerous range trips and a few months of weekly, or more, IDPA matches. Lotsa shooting, even going many weeks without cleaning, and lotsa 'Never' failing.

    Probably the best all-around Glock model, for all intents and purposes, ever made to date.

    Get a 5906. Nice solid weapon that eats anything and more than accurate enough. It can also be used as a nice skull cracking tool. I have over a dozen in one variation or another.

    Hi (gh) no-Point

    Please don't buy a Hi-Point for concealed carry unless you intend to hold your pants up with one hand!

    "If the thread is expanded to include wives, will the Hi Point people be voting for someone top heavy?"
    Don't forget fat and ugly too!

    Buy a Walther P99 because I own one and it has the most comfortable grip of any plastic gun I have ever held.

    OR

    Buy a BOBERG because I want someone else to spend $950 on a very nice looking and unique operating pistol BEFORE I do, and give me a report.

    I vote for Cz (nay, vz) 82. Czech military surplus, good project gun, small enough for CCW, but accurate as he'll due to a fixed barrel (pinned in place) and polygonal rifling. $200. I own it, love it, and more importantly I trust it. The 82 is offered in 9x18 Makarov only.

    First Group Has Shipped!


    This is a huge milestone for us! Packout was a lot of work, but we expect to streamline it just like every other process involved in our business. I really appreciate the patience of our paying customers who have waited up to 10 weeks since they placed their orders. The next time we hope to ship a lot sooner than that and then eventually get to day-to-day inventory so that no one has to wait. Any local customers, who had requested this option, can pick his up at Al's gun shop in White…
