    I used to have a Sig Sauer P239 .40 and I kick myself everyday that I sold it.

    Solid, smooth weapon. Very accurate and a real pleasure to shoot.

    Wicked, you may want to consider .40. As stated, it's a great compromise.

    I am considering a 40, but the cost of ammo is something that I'm considering.

    You will never beat the cost of 9mm ammo since it is used by pretty much every standing army in the world. Surplus 9mm is dirt cheap.

    Re: I would like to exercise my 2nd...

    Think I may go with the Beretta PX4 9mm since I'm familiar with Beretta handguns to begin with. It's a gun that I feel comfortable that my wife can handle as well.


    So, when you go to these indoor range/shops do you pay to try out a gun? How does that work? Seems like you might be kind of hard pressed to convince the shop to just let you go shoot their weapons...just because...I don't know.

    If you order online, how does that work? I'm assuming it's similar to most return policies...so if I got the Beretta and it had a 30-day return policy or something, I'd take it to a range, shoot it, and if it wasn't working properly or something I'd return it in exchange for something else/refund?

    Most ranges have gun rentals. Call around and make sure they have the weapon you're interested in buying available to rent. I know you're in VA so you shouldn't have an issue finding one that carries a fare amount of Beretta products.

    The gun won't be delivered to your home. You'll have to find a Class III arms dealer who, for a fee, will conduct the transaction for you. There is a lot of paperwork involved in buying a gun online so your best bet is to find a gun shop that carries that particular model and buy it from them. Gun manufacturers don't take refunds. But reputable companies like Beretta have excellent customer service so if something breaks, it's covered via their warranty. Find a weapon you like before you buy it because you'll be stuck with it until it dies or you sell / trade it.

    Now thats interesting. Not really anything new though. Google has massive databases of ip-based searches. It catalogues practically everything.

    But no more guns.

    It's not selling them anymore and Pelosi said the 2d amendment was
    still on the agenda. A lot of heavy shit is coming down if he is
    re-elected now that health care stands.

    This is a major outlet that gave up their right to sell guns.

    What a silly thing to do for Google.

    This does absolutely nothing to stop the sale of ammo or weapons. I can still do a Google search and find hundreds of retailers who will still sell me ammo and guns.

    They must have done this to appease someone in the Government.

    Houston, what's your thoughts about "assault rifles". What are a few good manufacturers and models to consider?

    I have no idea what an "assault rifle" is.

    But if you mean those mean looking weapons that do the same thing other weapons do -- shoot a bullet -- there are a few in my collection.

    I love my Bushmaster M4 Carbine. Takes me back to my days as an MP. It's totally modular so you can add all kinds of rails, sights, etc to make it even more angry looking.

    I also have a semi-automatic H&K MP5. It's good for a light weight option and for putting a lot of rounds through it since its 9mm. The trigger has been highly polished on mine (wink) and is pretty fun.

    I am also saving up to purchase an integrally suppressed AK-47 from the folks over at Red Jacket Firearms. They make a great product and I cannot wait to shoot that rifle. It's whisper quiet and far more accurate than a stock AK.

    Re: I would like to exercise my 2nd...

    I was considering a few. The Bushmaster M4 was one, but I was reading some so-so reviews, so I am not sure. It seems more affordable than Colt's.

    I was also debating between an Mini 14 and a Mini Thirty. I like the power of the thirty but reading it suffers in the accuracy department, especially when it gets hot.

    I to am saving up for a Red Jacket gun as well.

    I kid, but I would like to have one just because.

    Colt made the original AR variant, IIRC, so theirs is always going to be the go-to. My only complaint about the Bushmasters are the mags. Very unreliable. I threw mine away and went with another brand.

    Never shot a Thirty but a friend of mine just got a 14 and loves it.

    If the ammo wasn't so costly, I'd love to have a .50 Caliber. This gun is modeled after the Barrett M107 Sniper Rifle and they found a way to reduce noise and still maintain velocity (relatively). Simply amazing. Will Hayden is the Picaso of craft weaponry.

    PRetty much the complaint I was hearing. Is it true that you need to clean them every 200 - 300 rounds or they may jam. I read that about M4's in general not just Bushmasters.

    Never shot a Thirty but a friend of mine just got a 14 and loves it.
    I might just go with the 14 anyway. Longer range and cheaper ammo...
