I shot one once...... .45 it was alright, it was old/worn as hell so that may have been why I didn't like ti much. But from what I hear they are very good weapons.

It's 106 miles to Chicago, we got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark, and we're wearing sunglasses

Ebear, I love the Para handguns. I have had 2 of them and the only reason I sold them was I needed the money. I love the hi-cap pistol in 40 S&W and 45 acp. The company is from Canada.

If money is no problem, yes I would go with the Para.

if you have to time to do it like I do. If you don't have to time to reloaded then I would go with the pistol.

well

The reloading would be my answer to the high prices and scarceness of ammo these days. Do you reload 9mm and .45 too?

I had a para warthog, It was a very nice gun, recoil was a little stiff, but managable though!
I would recomend them.
Although the prices are a little high in my opinion. I feel that you can get just as good a quality gun cheaper.
Like Glock, Springfield, Walther,Smith-Wesson, All are just as good quality wise in my opinion.
