Handguns and Revolvers / Re: Beretta Brigadier

I could buy a used car for those 3 guns  :P

Maybe I should duct tape those guns together and put some wheels on them  :thumbsup1:



Plus side is the guns will still be worth something in a few years, unlike a used car...
Minus is those guns cannot drive ya to work.

After I got that $3k Springfield Custom Shop 1911 a few years ago, I saw a $3k zero turn mower at Home Depot one day... I thought to myself... Wow... I don't cut grass because of my allergies - but I could have got one of those for the price of that gun.

I should have bought one just to drive around the neighborhood - It was bright orange too, my favorite color  :th_thicon_lol:

I could have rigged up a drink holder and some other cool stuff  :th_thicon_lol: :th_thicon_lol: :th_thicon_lol:

Damn I waste money on guns :p

I was thinking more along the lines of problem guns.

Well, I wish I could have kept all the guns I've owned.

I generally lose interest or need the $ for something else. Just a few guns over the years that I really didn't like. Kahr PM9 was one (too much recoil, but kept it due to the size until I got the Shield). And, a HK USP 9mm fullsize - plastic mags are unlined, and rounds can get stuck inside together - and basically deactivate the entire mag (lost confidence in the gun after that - all other HKs but the USP 9 and 40 have metal magazines).

Everything else - I would have kept had I been a rich guy :p

I liked my Hk P2000 - Fav HK I owned out of the 7 I have had. But, the PX4 is much cheaper.

Can Authorities Cut Off Utilities And Pose As Repairmen To Search A Home?


Quote
Some legal cases do more than raise eyebrows they push the legal envelope to change the law. Such is a federal case in Las Vegas now working its way through the courts. The question is whether federal agents can disrupt service to a house and then, masquerading as helpful technicians, gain entry to covertly search the premises in hopes of finding evidence that might later justify a search warrant.

Well, I already have night sights in both of my guns.

I lusted after the Brigadiers in the past few years because I missed getting one previously. But for now - it doesn't fit my budget. Since I just got that 3rd 1911 - I can't do it. I knew Beretta was coming out with something cool the last month or so - I was afraid of what it might be, because I didn't wnat to be tempted to move heaven and earth to get one of whatever it would be.

The Beretta 92 is still my all time fav gun. With the hogue grip panels and the D spring - there is nothing else that feels as good in my hand. However, after having ONLY Berettas for a while _ I decided I wanted other stuff too.

I'd buy one if I had the cash, but I'm not going to sell anything to pay for one. And, that puts it a year away at least - as I just recently made three higher end 1911 purchases since July. I could buy a used car for those 3 guns  :P

Well, I didn't sell it because I didn't like it. I needed the $ for something else I wanted.

It's really the only polymer, fullsize semi auto I like. I like it because it's DA/SA.

It's a toss up between the P99 A/S and the Beretta PX4. But, the DA pull on the P99 A/S doesn't feel quite right, since it is a striker fired DA/SA - and not a real hammer.

Unless its something that is somewhat rare - it's easy enough to rebuy the same gun again if need be.

You don't even want to know how many Beretta 92 vbariants I have owned over the years :p

Yes - just be sure to go out in the backyard when you start pounding on the rounds with the hammer  :P

Just workplace violence - or something similar. Move along - nothing to see here...

Maybe TXAZ owns an MP5? :th_thicon_idea:

Or he has a hammer and a lot of time  :th_thicon_lol:

She needs to stay home. She is a nurse - why is this even an issue. She should know better

If it was the exact same price as the 92 I'd consider it, just for the ease of getting night sights. I wouldn't pay $1 more for it though.

It is more. In the $750 range or so according to the people who just bought one.

Just installed X-Wing only to find that my flightstick is broken  :th_thicon_cry:

That sucks. Been like 10-12 years since I had a joystick for the computer, unfortunately.

Glad to know that I'm not the only one with a "gun account" mine is at a different bank than we normally use. My wife is understanding, she just doesn't ask questions. I often buy guns without her knowledge. She asks me sometimes "I never seen that gun before" I tell her "oh yeah you have it's that gun I've had for the last few years" but really its a month old... I need help too. Lol.

I've done that before. When all I had were a bunch of Beretta 92s, it was even easier  :th_thicon_lol:

All that's different is the heavy slide, correct?

Yes, and a front dovetailed sight.

50,000-100,000 rounds? Wow.
