It is really a cool little pistol IMO
as you have the Ruger, i think thats wise guy..
sheesh... talk about a "short buss" kid... trying to think of something witty to say to cover my dumb shit goof... ah...no luck.. see you guys later... called to dinner....Saved by the bell....take care all..
I love my Walther. Great guns.
They are great guns with a great reputation. I was interested in the Bersa line, I even consulted with our resident gunsmith Greasypaws about them (thanks grease), but when it came down to it, I would rather spend the extra $$$$ now rather than down the road.
I looked at it the same way, I like the 9mm round, it works for me. The dude at the gun store "felt" that I needed a .45 (salesmen sheesh), that Is just not my round, I have shot them and they don't work for me.....and you are right, I have the Ruger and a bunch of 9mm ammo in stock.
Good looking gun, and Walther's have an excellent reputation. I hope you remain happy with it, and that it does everything you need it to do. How do you propose carrying it?
I got a belt loop side holster which will work just fine as I generaly don't tuck in my shirts.
of practice ammo and a couple boxes of your chosen defense ammo. Most newer guns really don't need a break-in period, but you want a couple hundred rounds with no malfunctions before relying on something. Just a thought. And what ammo are you looking at using?
Ammo: I like the Remington "golden sabre" 147 gr BJHP, It is a mean round, it worked well in my Ruger, hopefully the Walther will digest it okay (they didn't have any sabre yesterday). My practice stuff is steel case ball FMJ 9mm.
One thing I have found with my Ruger and AR, if shooting steel case the gun needs to be cleaned before shooting brass rounds, the steel case does not expand as well as the brass, therefore a lot of fouling in the chamber which leads to malfunctions when I switch to brass (it took me a while to figure that out). Interestingly that doesnt happen with my AK.
Very cool. How it feels to your hand is the biggest factor to me.
I'm still undecided between the walther and a smith&wesson m&p. All the sales dudes I talk to try to sell me the .45 too. I find it amusing 'cause I'm straightforward with them about having no trigger time on handguns, seems like they all say "oh you'll be fine with a .45 after you shoot it a couple of times" Anyway very nice looking gun and it sounds like you got a good deal.
It ain't much different than buying a car with these salesmen in that they all
say you need the "big block"...LOL
What realy matters is your ability to re-aquire the target after you shot the
"cannon" and the muzzle is pointed towords the moon, this has a lot to do
with stature and for me, at 6-2 and 185 lbs, the .45 doesn't work as a CC
