i like the 9mm round so what is your opinion on was is the best make of this cal.
firearm or ammunition?
well i shoot the stoeger couger 9mm and i love it. ive also shot a glock 19 and its nice too. grip is a little short for my taste but its smooth shooting.
I love the 9mm round. I have a AR-15 9mm Olympic arms. I put lots of rounds through it, very accurate. I am taking it out to 100 yards, which suprised the shit out of me. No drop at all.
I also have a P99 as walther. I like the trigger and decocker. I am not very good with it. Pie plate at 25 meters. Beyond that nothing.
My next handgun will be a Glock 17c
I am partial to sigs. so i like the p226 or p229. The g17 and g19 are nice too. just my preference.
The Sig Sauer-226 9mm has been the Militaries #1 choice for their main pistol of choice for Combat. I'm not to sure on the amount of time it's been #1 with the Military but I do know it is right now..lol. But I have shot many pistols and this Sig is incredibly accurate. The weight and balance of the Sig makes it great for awesome handling for some incredible grouping.!!. I just bought my Sig-226 9mm about a year ago & one thing is for sure, the cost of everything I paid for to builded my Sig like I have it now put one hell of a dent in my wallet real quick...lol. But it was real worth it. I've paid much more for other Pistol & rifles in the past anyway..lol. I have just joined this site and I love it. I have some pictures of all my fire-arms that I put on this site if you guys want to check them out.. This is a cool site..!!!.
This is what I paid for everything you see in the Sig's picture I have of it: Sig Sauer-226 / 9mm = $1'400.oo that also included 4- (15)round Mags. My Tactical Gemtech Suppressor: $890.oo & it was separate from the Sig and I also had to separately buy a Sig. model "Threaded Barrel" for the Suppressor I got for it: $370.oo... This Pistol has been worth every penny and all I want to do now is collect all the Sigs that are out...lol. That will cost me...!
Nice to meet all you guys!!!
No...Im pretty sure we use Berretta 92F
different branches use different makes. sytasyn- you guys use the 92f, and I think the mk23 for special forces right? I know navy, fbi, homeland security, and other lea's use sigs.
Deaf- why didn't you get the p220 combat TB that already comes with a threaded barrel? its pre made for your kind of shit. just wanted the 9mm?
Why did I not get the Tactical-Sig 220 that comes with a threaded barrel???
I can answer that real easy...lol. First off, if that store I use to get guns had one, it would have had to be the correct color i usually prefer. And 2nd was that It wasn't there infront of my face to buy at that very moment when I was there to buy that exact Sig. Also, I didn't have any idea that I was ever going to put a Suppressor on it when I bought it. It's about a year old and right after I bought it, me & my friend were talking about guns and how he has always liked my collect of guns and he then he brought up how I should get Suppressors for them. I look at him like he just soke something...lol. i said, "I know that I wouldn't be able to because of how illegal they are". He said, "no dude... no. You can drive up to Crestview, Florida right now & buy anything they have or can have right now!!" I then continued to disagree with him because I have always none that having any kind of Suppressor, Full Auto, Switch Blade Knife or anything like that in your possession & the Police catches you with any of thous that they state would put me under the Jail!!!... He laughed at me because he knows I know guns but he loved that he I thought he was wrong when he was right. But hey, I have always kept up with what the laws are about what we can all do with a gun and how we can carry them in your car or on our bodies in public and everything like all that has been one of my big concern points because of trying to never get in trouble with these guns that I have. I carry the crap out of all sorts of different kinds of guns of mine all the time for many different reasons and I have just "tried" to be smart about my personal gun control in the best way I can..lol. Try is the key word on that but it's easy as long as you keep yourself low.
But anyway, I have lived here in Florida my whole life & I love it here even more than ever & you will find out why I love this state even more later in this article at the bottom..lol. Many of you I'm sure will already know but I didn't one year ago because it just passed not that long ago. Well, I still didn't believe what my friend was telling me because I had some solid, proven reasons for not believing him at that time when I have just recently tried to find ways of being able to buy a Suppressor and I failed. But around 2 to 4 years ago, Florida was very strict. I had to do the 3 liter bottle Suppressor trick and that sucked compared to the real thing...lol. So now we then decided to get in my car and drive to Crestview, which is only 30 minutes from my house and when we got there I was not prepared at all for what I was about to see in this gun store. I saw the most amazing guns of so many different kinds that cover the walls all around this store and that store was big. But what made me almost pass out were the amount of all the Fully Auto Machine guns & all the different models. This store had so many different kinds of guns that if you put all the weapons from every video game together in a store & then walk in the store I walked in, you would choose the store that I use now because of the incredible amount of the store's Special kinds of Weapons & accessories attachments that were amazing. I have been to ALLOT of Gun Stores from all over the USA, incuding even gun shows & this store that is in Crestview tops them all. Well a Gun Show has Allot of fire arms in there and I'm sure they have more than the store I like but even in gun shows, they can't have illegal guns there to sell you.
So I see all these different size Suppressors for all kinds of pistols & rifles that I was in-love. The I had the Dealer take me out back to let me hear how quite the model Suppressor was that I was going to buy. He did and I handed him the cash that second. But come to find out of course that my friend was right and at the time of me buying the Suppr. I found out that Florida passed a Law 1.5 years ago that a Florida resident wit ID of course could buy these special weapon and all. Hell, this store had todays best Switch Blades in there. The Dealer told me that was part of the Law passings.
I am very sorry for writing this much to all of you but I have been asked by so many people about how I was able buy all the guns I have and if it was illegal to own. So I went ahead and told that story to most of you guys incase any of ya were wondering how I have them.
Also, I would love to help with any questions regarding the actual process to actual own any of the items I mentioned above!
What is the process to purchase a suppressor? Also, what about a machinegun???
depends on where you live... many states like AZ (where i live) just require that just have a class 3 liscense for suppressors, full auto, and rifle/shotgun barrels under 16 in.
Do u know what the laws are for Kentucky? I have tried to find them and I cant.
looks like KY is good. i think you just need a class 3.
I would love 2 have an MG! But with the cheapest price tag being around $5,000(Mac-10), and with ammo prices on the rise, I just dont think I could afford it!
That is why I live here. Land of the free.
wow deaf. i got a headache now. ever try any downers? lol. anyway, great choice on the sig, i know how the impulse buy thing goes.
How do you say TOO much Caffiene? LOL
Wow, we have really jacked this forum up posting all these replies in different orders! I think me and Reaper posted something at almost the same time a minute ago.
sig p-226 is nice.
i have shot the sig p-226 very nice have not shot any of the glocks
the next gun i wanna try is the baby desert eagle
its funny you mentioned the baby eagle, i looked at one today at the gun show. looks like a nice gun
YEAH I ALMOST GOT ONE BUT, I WENT WITH THE COUGER. I DID'NT GET ANY POSSATIVE FEED BACK ON THE BABY EAGLE.
Try the U.S.P which comes in a varity of cal. from a 9MM to a .45 i highly reccomend it both as a gun maniac and a person who has shot one.
i've yet to shoot a .45, but im having allot of fun with my 9
ive yet to try the .45 but i think its worth shooting ecspecially if its a U.S.P.
I like the ole school high power Browning. The way it feels in my hand.
Which of these two is better quality? I have been thinking of getting on these. I can not make up my mind.
they are both good quality. it comes down to preference. I prefer sigs hands down.
I vote sig but try considering the U.S.P 9mm It is accurate and reliable and can be equipped with a suppressor.
the hk's are pretty nice
GET A U.S.P NO SUCH THING AS A BAD SHOT WITH THEM.
Thanks, Sig it is.
you know i shot an older model glock 19 and the grip was too short for my taste. not really impressed with it.but everyone has differant likes and dislikes
The CZ75 in any figuration is a very good and solid firearm. The P-01 is probably one of the best in it;'s class I've owned and shot thousands of rounds through them all.They are currently the Nat'l Chezc police issue sidearm. These firearms are so strong (the steel framed versions) that i put over 1500 rounds of the ol hirtenburger sub machine ammo through my first cz (124gr. +p+ steel core)would not recommend doing it through any other pistol i also shot that stuff through the xd's. If any body is interested go to czusa.com
i put +p+ through my sigs with out any problems too
9mm is a good target round, but there is nothing like the 45acp for home defence. dont get get me wrong,..the nine is right on target but with a 45acp your really laying some substantial lead down!!! ps. my firearm of choice in 9mm would have to be the Beretta 92F.
the other day i took my couger 8000 apart to clean it and it was a bitch putting it back together.its similer to the berreta 92. is there a video out there on how to properly clean and put together my gun?
Read your owners manual. It has step by step instructions on how to. Your local gun sales person should have taken time out with you to show you the proper functions and dissasembly procedures. If you didn't receive a owners manual contact berreta usa. The key to reassamble is to make sure the barrel and the locking bolt/lug is in proper alingment, once that is done replace the spring and guide back in, put the slide back on the frame pull back the slide turn back the slide dissasemble/take down lever, retract the slide to make sure that it is installed properly.
craigman, it took awhile but i got it back together. The cleaning part is what im most interested in. what brush what to iol, stuff like that.the break down and assembly will come with repetition.thanx allot for your help.i've got to learn patience.
For the barrel use a nylon or bronze brush get a cleaning rod, actually get a kleen bor cleaning kit. find some good ol hoppes copper solvent, dip the brush in the solvent, brush the bbl from the chamber end several times back and forth, dip once or twice, let it set there, get an old toothbrush and get it wet with the solvent, clean the receiver rails, breech face around the firing pin hole underneith the extractor and the rear of the receiver, clean the frame area around the transfer bar, wipe the inside of the frame using patches get some breakfree cleaner or gun scrubber blast the grude out the frame into a box with a plastic bag ( easier for clean up. spray out the receiver also let air dry wipe off the guide rod,spring and lug, put a patch holder on your rod and wipe out your bbl untill it comes out clean and shinny. use more than one patch. lightly oil(break free clp or lp great stuff) the outer bbl put small amount on your finger and wipe,put 2-3 drops in the frame rails and the receiver rails, not to much,lightly oil the lug and of course the outside of frame and receiver. wipe it all down once you reassemble it. retrack the slide back and forth many times to distribute the oil in your frmae rails. then you should be good to go.
hey Craigman, I really appreciate this thankx allot
Look at the ruger SR9, XD series, rugers P series, and of course all the CZ subcompacts and midsize and full size cz'z, check out czusa.com you'll love it. smith&wesson model 908 and the full size 915 and the mp series. they are all good firearms just matter of personal opinion and how much do you want to spend.
I would go with the SIG or the Glock 19. your choice.:)
chose a 9mm yet?
Try. Have you made your choice?
Never end a sentence in a preposition.
eg: Where is it at? (wrong)
Where is it at, asshole? (correct)
You guys are funny!!(you guys are fuckin funny!!) is that right?
Snake asked me to help him with his grammar and spelling. I am not trying to be a smartass. Just trying to honor the young man's request.
say that three times fast. you're talking about snake here. he doesn't need good grammer to be a sneaky sniper!
Sneaky enough to steal dragster engine secrets
Have a try of the HK USP series. Very stable with less recoil. I have the USP compact 9mm.
NOT CHEAP THOUGH, HKS ARE VERY GOOD GUNS
i think their good guns but they ride on the quality and reputation shirt tales of guns like the mp5
i'll tell you ,I WAS AT THE RANGE YESTERDAY AND WAS SOOTING DIFFERANT .45S AND ONE I SHOT AND LIKED WAS THE SPRINGFIELD ARMORY XD. NOT TO EXPENSIVE ABOUT 560.00 OUT THE DOOR AND SHOOTS REAL NICE.
havent shot one but was interested to hear from others about it not just from magazines who are just trying to get you to buy one
THEY ARE VERY SMOOTH TO SHOOT.AS ADVERTISED.LOTS OF POSSIBILITIES FOR ADDING TOYS TO THEM TO.LIKE I SAID VERY GOOD GUN FOR THE PRICE
like my homemade cornlikker?
HEY...LEAVE SNAKE OUT OF THIS
wrong kinda likker i'm talkin the drinkin stuff
OK BRO.......WAS'NT SURE.LOL
i thought u were talkin bout a cornhole licker
THOSE ARE HARD TO FIND
too much info
wrong website big guy look under p-o-r-n
YEAH THAT XD SURE WAS NICE
Awsome handguns. I've owned and shot all three sizes in the 9mm. Shouldn't have sold em. I by another in a heart beat. Excellent handguns. You can shoot the piss out of them, and maintance is very easy. You can even strip the slide apart for anal cleaning. Anybody looking for a good 9mm instead of spending the money on a glock buy an XD their about 75.00 cheaper and just as tough if not tougher.
xd's are always good. i prefer glocks, but its just preference. nothing bad to say about xd. and i always like to support springer cause i love their rifles. also have a springer 1911 and love it.
its corn whiskey.....true hillbillys know that.....gun shooters know that....lol...lol..hahaha
SNAKE!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WHERE YA BEEN ??????????????/
I like the 9mm for economy and home defense as well as CC. It don't jolt your arm and < .20 a shot not bad. It will kill. I have Federal Hydro-Shok 145 gr for home & carry & use 115 fmj for range. I have a Glock 19 and used to have a Star like a 1911 years ago.
I have a Glock 17, Glock 19 and a Taurus PT99 and like them all. They have different characteristics and that makes them better suited for different tasks, but they all shoot very well.
But I shot a Sig Sauer 9mm, that was setup for competition, that was a sweet weapon. I have also shot the Tec-9...fun, but that's about all. I shot the Beretta 9mm in the military...while I didn't think it was a bad weapon, I would say it was unremarkable. The Glocks, especially the smaller versions fit well in my hand.
I'd recommend the HK USP since I've been using one for a long time now. It never fails and is accurate. Although I haven't tried the Sig, I have seen rave reviews about it. You have to shoot one to be able to decide.
As a round. It is very good if you use the hollowpoints
If the grip on a Glock19 is to short for you Ebear, try the Glock17.
the full size bersa thunder 9mm is good and inexpensive
