What Are You Thinking About Purchasing?

Recommended Posts

Put in for 2 permits at end of January. Was just curious about what handguns other people may be looking at.

 

For me I'm seriously thinking of getting an EAA Witness match or some derivitative of. Would be looking at the 9mm and also to pick up the 22 conversion kit.

 

For 2nd permit there are many purchases I'm considering:

 

S&W MP

Beretta 92FS

A dedicated 22 prob a Ruger or Buckmark

A 2nd revolver?

Maybe an affordable (read Phillipine made) 1911

A Glock......gasp!

 

What is everyone looking at buying?

If you are considering a Beretta 92FS I would suggest you also look at a CZ-75B - I have both an think the CZ is a much better and more accurate gun.

Already havebthe CZ 75B. Considering the 92Fs because it is a beautiful and iconic gun.....and because I see them every so often as police trade in specials for very reasonable prices.

hmmm, tell me more!

who does the kits? S&W or is it aftermarket?

Its actually not a kit just a drop in barrel. I recently bought mine from Midway for $130 after a coupon. Made by Storm Lake. I believe KKM and a few others also make them. Barrel quality is at least as good or better than factory. Plus you have the benefit of the 40 coming with 3 15rd factory mags. No worrying about getting them blocked.

 

Another option is just ordering the 5" 9mm barrel from s&w. All reports are they function 100% reliably as a drop in.

I've had an interest in a 1911 for the last year or so, but I'm not sure if I want to dump the money on the one I want quite yet (Dan Wesson Valor Stainless). I've looked at tiding myself over with a Glock 21 gen4 so I can get into the .45ACP game. Also looked at the SAR K2 for similar reasons.

 

I'd consider a 5" Walther PPQ, but they don't make it with the paddle release and I like true ambi controls. Besides, I already have a PPQM1 and I don't really need or want a plastic, striker fired 9mm in the stable. I'm convinced the PPQ is the best firearm in that category, so why get another?

 

Aside from that, nothing else really peaks my interest. I want to expand my realm of experience with every purchase, but I don't want to get ahead of myself. I'd like to eventually add a Tavor and an AK to the collection, but those are rifles and I don't want to get off topic.

 

Oh! Forgot to mention the Sig MK25 FDE. Looks to be one of a few firearms in Sig's line-up that didn't get fucked over by Mr. Kimber-dude.

I've burned my 1st two permits already. So, maybe, in another 1/2 year,  I'll look at getting two more. I'd be looking at upgrading from 9mm to .45acp. So, maybe a 1911 .45acp. Perhaps a .45LC revolver.

 

But there are other, more current priorities. Specifically, a 12G.  Probably a 930 class semi-auto.

Not when I bought mine. Came in the Sig shoebox with 1 mag.

 

I think they've upgraded since then, perhaps. I took delivery on my P226 in late December. When I was there, I saw two SP2022 kits being prepped. They both had two mags and the level 3 paddle holster.  It's in a larger plastic box than a standard P226 box.

    • How about buy it or build it anyway and enjoy it?
    • When you post a question, you wait for an answer. Eleven minutes is not long to wait. A full day made you look like a troll.
    • Please don't mind the negative comments.  We are a group that are constantly under attack and any new poster is met with a level of suspicion.  Welcome to our board!  Stick around and get to know us better....You won't regret it!  Some FFL dealers responded to you that it is legal for your parents to gift you a gun without being able to take possession. The general consensus is it would be much easier for you to pick out a gun in California and have your parents pay for it or reimburse you.  Good luck and you have very nice parents!
    • Wow, I didn't expect this would start such a paranoid flame war. Just had a question and I figured this forum would be the best place to ask it on. Just to put some fears to rest, I am a legal gun owner in "Commiefornia" (we do exist). My parents simply wanted to get me a special gift as a surprise for my birthday later this year, but I wanted to make sure they wouldn't get themselves in trouble or anything. Thanks to everyone who offered some much needed legal advice. I'll let them know about getting me a gift card as an option instead if they don't want to deal with the hassle as well. Thanks for your time!
    • Lets go through the whole thing:   2C 39:1 w (5) A part or combination of parts designed or intended to convert a firearm into an assault firearm, or any combination of parts from which an assault firearm may be readily assembled if those parts are in the possession or under the control of the same person. "A part of combination of parts" First per TITLE 13. LAW AND PUBLIC SAFETY CHAPTER 54. FIREARMS AND WEAPONS you are in possession of 1) "Rifle" means any firearm designed to be fired from the shoulder and using the energy of the explosive in a fixed metallic cartridge to fire a single projectile through a rifled bore for each single pull of the trigger. 2) "Firearm or firearms" means any handgun, rifle, shotgun, machine gun, assault firearm, automatic or semi-automati crifle, or any gun, device or instrument in the nature of a weapon from which may be fired or ejected any solid projectile,ball, slug, pellet, missile or bullet, or any gas, vapor or other noxious thing, by means of a cartridge or shell or by the action of an explosive or the igniting of flammable or explosive substances. It shall also include, without limitation, any firearm which is in the nature of an air gun, spring gun or pistol or other weapon of a similar nature in which the propelling force is a spring, elastic band, carbon dioxide, compressed or other gas, or vapor, air or compressed air, or is ignited by compressed air, and ejecting a bullet or missile smaller than three-eighths of an inch in diameter, with sufficient force to injure a person   So right there we could stop. Because you aren't in possession of parts. Now in Title 13 they do not define "parts" or "readily assembled" --> That is up to the interpretation of intent and opinion letters. However they define "manufacturer" and they include a lot about parts in there:   "Manufacturer" means any person who receives or obtains raw materials or parts and processes them into firearms or finished parts of firearms, except a person who exclusively processes grips, stocks, and other nonmetal parts of firearms.The term does not include a person who repairs existing firearms or receives new and raw materials or parts solely for the repair of existing firearms.
