What should I buy next?

Recommended Posts

Got one more P2P to burn.... 90 days are up by April 20th, and I'll extend to 180 if need be... kinda looking at something along the lines of a pocket pistol.

 

Requirements: 

 

1.  Shall use a caliber I already stock (9mm, 38spc/357 mag)

2.  Pocket sized and/or easily concealable

3.  Relatively affordable

 

One thing which caught my eye: 9mm Ruger LCR.  Anyone try this thing yet?  If not, how about the Ruger LC9?

 

Thanks!

CZ 75b compact.

+1. I have a full size 75b but have been eyeing a used compact model at the LGS. You can't go wrong with a CZ, great guns.

 

Coincidently, my permit expires on the 20th as well.

With those 3 requirements, it's hard not to like the S&W M&P9 Shield

I have the ruger lcr 9mm. Nice little gun. I was shooting 147gr +p duty 9mm out of it. Recoil isn't too bad. If you are interested i have a compact p250 in 9mm that comes with the subcompact conversion kit. I liked that gun a lot just got a 26 for mag compatability with my duty 19. Would let it go for a decent price

Joe doesn't sell guns or shoot them, someone text him and let him know his account was hacked. :hunter:

Blf, You realize April fools has passed right?

 

I don't curently have a pocket pistol in the stable, but the last time I toyed with trying ones out the small sigs impressed me the most. I'm a fan of the XD series, but the xds isn't that much smaller then my XDM to warent picking up another

XDm compact 3.8 in 9mm. 3.8" barrel, it's only 4.75" high, and has 13+1 capacity.

 

The other pistol on my list is a Walther PPS. That's more of a pocket gun. It's very slim. Only 6 round capacity though.

1.  Kahr PM9 or Walther CCP look interesting.  I'll see if I can shoot Old School's and if RTSP has a Walther

2.  CZ makes great pistols, but I'm not too interested in DA/SA guns in general.  

3.  Someone mentioned SIG pocket pistols... are they any good?

4.  What about 9mm CCW revolvers?  Any good ones there?

I second the M&P Shield, however, it isn't really a pocket gun.  Another thought would be the budget-friendly Kahr CM9 or a Ruger LCR.

I got the Boberg XR9-S, from Tom at Oakridge. Going to RTSP this week to shoot it if anyone wants to give it a whirl.

 

This thing is weird!  It feeds backwards...  I'll be there Thursday night for the IDPA training class and there Sunday for the IDPA itself...  If I have time I'd like to check it out.

I was going tonight to try it, but I have Rangers Devil's tickets in a suite. Go Devils! I'm heading there Thursday after work to try it out.

If you live in NJ with no planned escape why are you worried about concealability?

 

I made that mistake a few years ago. Got a Sit p238. Hated the gun, hated the round, sold it. Kicked like a mule. I can't imagine women carrying something like that.

 

In 357 you should consider a Ruger SP 101. Fantastic gun, but just 5 rounds. I know, you plan on getting into a bunch of gunfights and that's not enough capacity. Also shoots .38 specials which is a nice round.

 

Or if you'd like to save money on the gun and would ***possibly*** consider a new caliber, buy a Makarov or related gun in the 9x18 caliber. If you look you can get one that's practically new for $300-500. They are heavy guns however. Ammo is cheap. They are 100% error-free, fun to shoot, and in my hands amazingly accurate.

    • I have a Springfield 1903 that I inherited long ago.  It was my grandfather's, my father's and finally mine but I know little about it! I also have the original bayonet that it came with.  It's made by Springfield and the serial # is 249839.  I have been told it's unsafe to shoot at that #. I have found that this 1903 was actually made in 1903 and has a casehardened receiver. I know that myself and my descendants have never fired it. The rifling looks brand new for a 119 year old rifle! I know nothing about it's value, how to judge it's condition, etc.  I put a few quick pics below and would appreciate any guidance you could give me.  
    • That paragraph describes the method of securing a firearm when being transported under a number of clauses in that section. You have to read the whole thing. It begins with: So look back to see what 2C:39-5 says about handguns and rifles/shotguns: Note the 2 underlined parts. If you have a permit to carry a handgun, possession of a handgun is not a crime. Therefore, you cannot be exempted, because there is no offence to be exempted from. However, almost nobody ever gets a permit to carry a handgun so almost all of us have to work under the exemptions for handguns. If you have an FPIC, possession of a rifle or shotgun is not a crime. Therefore, you cannot be exempted, because there is no offence to be exempted from. Notice that there is no mention of a loaded handgun, therefore all handguns are treated the same, loaded or not which is how carry permit holders can carry loaded handguns - it is not until you are forced to transport under the exemptions that being unloaded is required for handguns. However, possession of loaded rifles or shotguns is specifically called out as an offence. The thing you may realize from this is that if you have an FPIC, you do not have to adhere to 2C:39-6.g and can have the unloaded rifle or shotgun uncased. That is not to say you wouldn't potentially get jammed up under another charge, such as causing a public alarm or disturbance if you were walking down Main St with it on a sling, but you're not committing a firearms offence per se. Now go back and read what HE and I have said before - do not take my word for any of this. I am not a lawyer and this advice is worth no more than what you paid me for it. Read the whole of 2C:39 and 2C:58 and the relevant parts of the Admin Code, and then decide for yourself whether you believe me or need to ask someone who is actually qualified to explain this.
    • The statutes for transporting firearms do not specify handguns, but seem to apply to all firearms?   2C:39-6 g.   Any weapon being transported under paragraph (2) of subsection b., subsection e., or paragraph (1) or (3) of subsection f. of this section shall be carried unloaded and contained in a closed and fastened case, gunbox, securely tied package, or locked in the trunk of the automobile in which it is being transported, and in the course of travel shall include only deviations as are reasonably necessary under the circumstances.
    • Passed my online exam, but no field sessions available yet. And can I bring a 12-gauge shotgun only, or do I have to use a muzzleloader too?   When do they resume? 
    • I have that same S&W 686 6 shot in a 2.5 barrel, and I keep it at arm's reach at night from my bed loaded with 38 +P HP ammo. 357 ammo has too much recoil in a 2.5 barrel for home defense.
