just posted a comment about my son-n-law.. good guy.. but he bought a springfield XD in 40 (i had recomended) a 9 based on him being new to shooting, and cost of the ammo.. nope got the 40 .. Ok so fact is i liked the XD.. The next move was to trade this really good piece in for a storm..

He had valid reasons, as AZ is now CC for all, and wanted something smaller..again i suggested a 9mm single stack for this purpose.. nope (see a patern).. he gets then px4.. the gun is to small for my hands.. the hammer is a tiny roe type that i couldn't hold onto, and actually had a "controled" AD.. controled as in pointed down range AD as in BLAAM .. accidental discharge.. In fairness it does have a hammer drop saftey..but... Also the futuristic design sorta left me cold.. out side of that a great gun lol... theirs a lot of good ones out there with out the trade off...

First welcome to the family Gunholder now where do you plan on hunting? what do you plan on hunting? Are you after bolt,lever,pump,or semi rifle?There are always a lot of questions for this sorry. Have either of you shot a rifle? Is there a cost of the rifle you do not want to go over? Have you thought of maybe a used hunting rifle?

Am in florida so we got swamp/woods right now I have a SKS with a M4 stock and a BIG scope (need shell reflexer or form on scope) so the round is 7.62x39mm some say it is like a 30-30 but is fine for what florida has even for the BIG snakes in the woods now ( don't get me started lol) hope to hear more and your time with your son in the woods is always enjoyable :>)

likes & dislikes

good sight picture feels good in the hand and has 15 rounds Fire Power wise the barrel is cool to it rotates as you fire to add more spin to the bullet and in helps accuracy... very comfortable in 40cal ambidextrous safty one dislike is muzzle flip but overall really solid gun

Hey Moedizz..

which one are ya talking about here.. I thought the storm was a single stack.. I know the XD is a double were you talking about the Springfield..

To add to the confusion i didn't know the barrel rotated on either one of them.. Not doubting you on that, just didn't know.. on the rotating as it fires adding more "spin" that one i sorta question.. If the bbl rotates wouldn't that be as a result of the bullet, and if anything rotate in the other direction..

rotating barrel

it's supose to help transfer the energy less recoil, this is nothing new to guns, just not a lot of manufacturers out there that use it. The old Mexican made Star 1911 has a rotating barrel, they made those back in the 70's. Don't know if it does reduce the recoil any, but my guess is those guys over at Beretta are not a bunch of retards lighting their farts with their fingers up their nose's

im 100% sure the barrel rotates i think it has to do with recoil or the accuracy of the bullet on the purpose of the spin im not 100% but i can assure you that this gun does it ... now one the 15 round double stack thing im 100% at least in 40cal i practiced loading that mag for hrs...lol i really like this gun its the first gun i fired ive shoot at least 500 rounds with this gun and i only had one jam and thats cause i racked the slide with the safety on rookie move...lol

take a look at the CZ 75b, in 9 mm and in .40 if you can before you spend any money.

The price is right and they are dead on tack driving machines that will eat anything you put in them.

It is actually a very easy pistol to carry concealed, it is all metal and yet light even when loaded up with 20 rounds of 9 mm Gold-Dot in it.

I doubt you will find a pistol with a more natural point of aim, feel to the grip angle and grip ergonomics. The 1911 is nice without a doubt, but I have yet to hold one that matches the CZ in this area.

it's all subjective to personal opinion, likes and dislikes when we respond to calls for suggestions. None are better than the other, but if given the chance, as many of those suggested should be at least held in your hand, if not actually shot. I would shoot a few before making a choice though.

There is a difference between filling a Firearm Safe with firearms you want and doing it because your searching for something you are going to carry and shoot.

No sir, he fell into that bullet... Never argue with a stupid person. They'll just drag you down to their level and beat you with experience!!

thanks

took a look at the CZ site I'm am definitely going to get my hands on one of those not sure if the range rents them or not whats a normal price on those? When I first heard about the px4, I tried to find a range that would let me shoot one before I bought it, couldn't find one so I didn't buy it, now the range has one available to rent and any review I've read about this gun has nothing bad to say about it, I'm pretty convienced this will be the purchase I will make, but I will not make any decission until I do fire the gun.

Thanks for everyones imput

In 1897, John Browning patented a rotating-barrel automatic pistol which never entered production.

It depends, pistols sell for different prices around the country pretty much.

I just picked up a CZ P-01 Compact that has less than 200 rounds through it for $275.00.

You should be able to find a new one for between $350.00 - $500.00. 75b that is...

wow.. live and learn..

i'm guessing that in my soon to be 64 years, couple of decades with the dept of corrections, more gun shows than i can remember.. Pretty sure i've gone thru a couple trees worth of gun mag's in the past 50 years.. Can't believe i've missed this..

Not like you can use "potential" energy that many ways.. either a spring, gas bleed, spring and link like the 1911.. maybe turn a cylinder and slide like that old Webley auto revolvers.. but the rotating barrel thing happened while i was at lunch.. As i said live and learn..
