From what I hear they are avalible to law enforcement now....guess the rest of us will have to wait!
unless you're just wanting to spend $500 Bucks!
you're making SamD moist
I've never fired a Glock. I'm totally happy
with my 1911 Colt 45 Gold Cup Match. I don't
see how a Glock could improve on it.
Is your Colt up to this
but the average 1911A1 will be kept cleaned and lubricated, in other words, in the real world.
Hey neighbor look to your south, I'm waving my Colt.
Sure there are ugly guns just like there are
ugly cars. I might like a Chevy and you a Ford.
Geting from point A to point B is is the point.
I've never burried a Colt but I've heard stories
from millions of G Is about Colt so thats enough
and I own a Gold Cup that has never failed so I
From there it's just your opinion and your
pocketbook that makes the differance. I do know
how accurate my Colt is and don't worry about
Sorry I pissed yall off lol You'll get over it
off CW,the Glock vs.1911 is old and vintage entertainment here.
just 'cause I can't afford a glock does not mean they are not good guns :<)
Just because some folk aren't tough enough to handle a 1911 does not mean they are bad guns.
Ya keeping warm up there?
NO need to apoligize....the goverment pisses me off, not you! I personally have no problem with the 1911, it has been there with some of are best and is one of the reasons we can sit here and argue about this shit. All I'am saying is that when it comes to everyday carry and protection of my family, I'am reaching for the Glock not a Springfield. The reasons are weight, capacity, reliabilty, and yes they are accurate. I have both in my collection so it's just a personal chioce, like you said Ford VS. Chevy!(Ford for me)
It takes alot more than someones difference of opinion to piss me off.
Well the Gold Cup isn't regular Army
issue either, it has already been
tuned up to match grade and is as
smooth shooting as any big bore can get.
Then the adjustable trigger pull makes it
even easier to get used to. It's just
the Lemo of autos. Again my opinion
I'll still take my Ruger 9in 44 mag for
accuracy in big bores. Even over my Gold Cup
make great door stops
Yep you can fire right through the door at the asshole on the other side. That will stop the door from moving as well.
any gun will do that....9mm and up...
and more accurately at 50 yds I'll be impressed.
when you say 1911, do you mean all 1911's or just the Colts?
i' have,nt shot a Colt 1911, but i have shot the Taurus and it was very nice...also Several Kimbers which were very smooth.Has anyone ever shot a Wilson Combat? I want to know if it warrents the 2700.00 price tag.
It means Colts 1911 design although it
may have been made in the 70s
My wife can shoot 100 yds with my
Colt using alloy bullets. She shoots
better than I do
elevation was yards above target, it was weird when I finally got one on paper.
with a handgun is pretty imprssive shooting
I totally agree. No way for me but she
is used to shooting 100 yards with her
Ruger 44 mag so it's no big deal. right lol
She is a Navy brat and grew up shooting her
alloy bullets shoot a lot differant at long
ranges than lead is only way I see to do it
Yeah, I've shot my friends .44 Anaconda and its very accurate for distance also.lots of power with bad intentions!!lol
are fantastic great ones and there is shit. I had an Essex frame I built up with GI parts, excellent gun. I now have a Thompson Auto Ordnance which required some tweeking to get it up to 100% but for the past 20 some odd years and K's of rounds it has not missed a lick.
is a great design and I do give it its props.I've shot quite a few Glocks and they just did'nt thrill me.Im not saying they are bad guns....just not for me.
Check out this interactive website. Its worth a look.
Now look at a 1911 Colt Gold Cup Match.
The Glock is butt ugly and the Colt
shoots better. The only reason the FBI
issues Glock is Colt closed it's doors
over stupid law suits
The FBI went with the Glock for the same reasons many Police agencies did. The fact that they were getting a high capicity, DAO firearm that was very reliable,and safe. The only mistake the FBI made was not sticking with the 10MM Glock 20.
In my mind the 1911s are a nice sidearm and look nice as well. Reason I prefer Glock primarily is Reliabilty, Less moving parts, Lighter weight, and Cost. The Glock is a nice sidearm as well. This spring I am moving up to an H&K .45 USP Compact with supressor. Ive been doing my homework on this one as well. There are plenty of unreliable automatic handguns out there that deserve to be picked on. I have never had any problems with a Glock in that department.
it works well,and it looks almost the same as the springfield XDM,Walther,and any other black gun out there,lol.1911s are just fun to tinker with.
that was very cool!!!! thanks
You asked if one of the Wilson Combat guns selling for $2700 was worth it. It certainly wouldn't be worth it to me. I love 1911's, & have shot them for many years, but I don't need all the extras on one that raises the price that high. Perhaps if I were one of the top competitors in IPSC or IPDA, and heavily into the sport, AND either had money to burn or a sponsor, I might have one from Wilson Combat, Ed Brown, Les Baer, etc. But since I'm not, there's no way in hell I would spend that kind of money for one. Like Daisycutter, I've built them on Essex & on Caspian frames, & they shot as well as a Colt (for me, at least). Now if I was guaranteed that I could sell the Wilson Combat for $3000 the next day, I'd buy one!
im just glad to know that if i drop my glock 23 from a cliff, drop it in mud, drop it at the snow, drop it on water, that it will still fire......accurately.
and i dont get people calling any type of firearm ugly, because im trying to protect myself with a gun, not charming a perp with one.
I own several ugly guns and more beautifull
guns.I own 1 auto pistol I like and it
happens to be my Colt. The rest of my
hand guns are revolvers and I've never seen
an auto as pretty as a revolver. I can say that
because I am a gun owner and own both.
That's why they make Fords and Chevys
And I never heard of anyone losing a gunfight, target match, etc. due to a gun not looking pretty.
Imagine? The last words out of a scumbags mouth...I cant believe you shot me in the face with that Glock! Its so........ugly....*gaaaaaaak*
on my way out the door talk to ya'll later on!
He was here when i came on a git ago, i was just getting ready to ask him something, see by the list at the bottom he's gone.. Whats the weather in Arkanasas, It's cold and overcast in the AZ mts
Witch MTNs you live in?
Always thought that was well diggers ass brother. course im a dumb puplic shool white boy so...
We live in the Weaver mts. on hyway 89 bout equidistant from Wickenburg to Prescott. a little town of Yarnell is close, were in a place called Peeples Valley (yep thats the right spelling) back in 1860 Paulene Weaver who was quite a scout for hire took a gold co investor, AJ Peeples on a trip out of Wickenburg. He named the mountains after himself (or someone did) the Mountains go to close to 7K and our in a U shape. the valley in the middle old AJ named after himself. Guess they found enough gold to start up the town of Yarnell at 5k ft. its now grown to a whole 900 people. post office, bank, grocery store, 3 churches, 3 bars, no stop lights hyway 89 is main street.. Peeples Valley is 4 miles away for those who like to live rural. History lesson done.
to live in Glendale.
This is to cool, wife and i got a duramax when i retired. I put Michlons on it. and nothing...repeat NOTHING can get to the top of that hill faster than my 605 ftlb of torgue Duramax.. When ever we go to Wickenburg we always get the sports cars that are out for the big hill. Weve lived here for 6 years and i know the perfect apex points on every corner so.. You cant believe the looks i get from Porches or BMW's when they get blasted by a TRUCK.. to funny.. and the wife and i have this practised boored look of a rural retired couple who are just out for a drive while we blow past them.. I just love to put Liberal MBA Yuppies in there place..
see ya all later
I got none of those, didn't need any...lol
well socks and underwear anyway!
Which might be a bit more accurate than the "Treasure of the Sierra Madre" quote was intended to be.. I found out a long time ago that going "commando" was the best way to stay clean.. which might be sharing more than ya all want, but figure if you can handle the spelling and the other "quirks" you can handle that..
The best defence hand gun is the one that is closes to you, or the one in your hand, be it shotgun, hand gun, long gun.Opinions are like assholes, we all got one!
If you have a, Smith, Ruger, Colt, Glock, Remington, they are all Emitional!
So buy a GOOD reliable weapon, shoot it a lot, be able to hit what yer shooti'n @!
Now 4 U Guys in Southern Airzonia, I recomend, 12 ga pump/auto, and a damn GOOD side arm, with several Magizines! Hollow Pts. of Choise. I use in my Duty Gun Remington Golden Saber 124gr(+p). What I buy for home is Hornady, Critical Defence, also Federal 124gr. Hydra- Shock(+P+). Remington L.E. 870, 7 1/2 shot, cause I got Neighbors! Or I'd use my 12ga. 00 copper plated,15 pellet mag's.
Now, having said all of this, Buy the best defence ammo, 4 y'r best hand gun, have a plan, rehearse that plan(even 2 plans). Then call the cops to draw the line around the corps.
I always talk to Damn much! : )
Most of what you say makes a lot of sense.
If you are an apartment dweller you might
be limited to the 7 1/2 but if that's all I had
I think I would aim for the face. I think if I
were in an apartment I would at least have #4
shot. But it's your choice.
I have my Mossy 20ga pump full of #3 Buck.
It is comfortable for everyone in my house
to shoot and I wouldn't feel safe with anything
My 357 is full of 110gr HJHP and my 38spl the
same but in 38.
That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
are also Ford owners
To me the Glock looks like an Edsel
Lyle I am in Western Arizona with a beretta.Most people would guess revolver cause I am western.But I use up-to-date guns.
Wait wrong place to comment.XD.
Now this would have some kick to it.
Wait this is the right place to post.
Hey El Presidente,
How come Carterscountry is getting away with posting to very old posts? Not that I care...just sayin, it's not fair...I get criticized for this practice. I am calling the ACLU...now I know how you are, just like all you racists out there in Arizona. How dare you homeowners complain about the poor brown people who just want freedom like you..HAHA!
