Just got back from the range with my brand new, never shot before,Glock 43. Ran a box (50 rounds) of ammo through it, just to get acquainted with it. This little Gem is a single stack 9mm. with a 6 round mag.

The target below, was the first seven rounds(one in chamber) at 7 yards. I was impressed. Its probably going to be my new carry piece.

Glenn, two years ago I bought Marilyn a single stack 9mm Glock 43 for her birthday. She picked it out.

This is her at 10 yards, standing two hand hold.

She likes the Glock because there is no safety to fumble with, and it shoots every time.

Semi tricked out Para-Ordnance P13-45. Trigger job, polished feed ramp, Novak Low Profile sights. Ed Brown memory groove beavertail. All internals and the three 13rd mags all coated with Robar's NP3 electroless nickel Teflon finish. Outside coated with Robar Roguard Molybdenum-disulfide polymer finish. Usually carry in a Galco holster and I'll throw one mag in each front pocket. That gives you 40 rounds of 45ACP. In the winter time I usually carry it in the pocket of my heavy winter coat.

That's what it takes up here in Maine especially when you go to Wal*Mart to go grocery shopping the first of the month after they hand out the welfare checks to all these Maine farm girls who weigh more than an Army deuce and a half. Do you know what it's like having a dozen of them coming at you in those 3 wheeled motorized carts all heading for the twinkie isle at once? It's either fight or flight and you need all the firepower that you can get. You ever get those emails, the pictures from Wal*Mart showing all these strange people wearing all these strange get-ups and the 2 ton chicks wearing little clothing or Spandex? All from Maine.

You know how they say everything is bigger and better in Texas. Well you all must of lost a piece of land that broke off and floated east, went around Florida up the east coast and attached itself to NH, cause damn I just came back from Wally World grocery shopping and there was this one big Maine girl that was wider than my old cabover Freightliner grill. Her husband or boyfriend whatever he was, was just as big. It's pretty sad, their shopping cart was filled with all sorts of JUNK.

Ah Justin. A man after my own heart. The H&K P series was my favorite all time pistol. Between 1995 and 1999 I collected combat handguns, 106 of them. I use to practice at minimum 3 days a week and I became a pretty good shot with a handgun, but I just loved those P7's enough to purchase 11 of them. The first was the original PSP then a P7M8, 5 P7 M13's, 3 black and 2 nickel. Then 4 P7M10's, 2 black and 2 nickel. When my eyesight changed when I was 45 years old I sold 104 and only have 2 pistols left. Now I'm into buying and shooting benchrest rifles.

Had a 45 xd shot good but being crippled I couldn't jack the slide back hard enough to get the shell outa the barrel. Don't have any problems with a 4in. or 5in. slide but couldn't work 3in. slide had to take it outside and shoot it to get the shell out of the barrel. The extractor wouldn't let go of the case. Got a 642 smith now. I can unload it. Doug

Jim,

The P7...probably the greatest handgun nobody has heard of. I'd always get strange looks on qualifying days, or a "What the hell is that"? Then I would let them shoot it, which was followed by an incredulous look and a "Holy sh!t"!

Probably the easiest to shoot factory handgun ever made. The bore sits so close to the hand that recoil feels non-existent. Double-taps happen in a screaming hurry, and land like a set of eyes on target. Phenomenal little gun.

I've heard good things about the Sig P210 as well, but have never had the pleasure of shooting one.

I'm curious...you kept two of the 106. What were the two you kept?

And yes...the eyes. Hence my comment about reading glasses. I haven't seen my front sight in a couple of years. I've always shot a true Weaver stance, but last range day, I tried isosceles in an effort to get my front sight a little farther away from my eyeballs. Didn't help.

Getting old blows...

When I think pocket, I think concealed carry. Here is one which I carry all the time. A Seecamp 380.
No it's not the most powerful, but it's better than going empty handed, and it is small enough to fit in the pocket. It makes a Ruger LCP look big.

I only kept a 1st generation Glock 17 and that Para P13. I did have a Sig P210-6 with the matching serial # slide and barrel in 22lr. My favorite caliber is the 10MM. I had a half dozen of them including a Bren 10, and an FBI issue S&W 1076 that I bought from an agent I knew in the Boston office. I think the handgun that I regret selling the most was a ported Colt Defender 3" 45ACP. I use to carry that everywhere.

I agree with Lee on the value of the Python. My love affair with the Colt Python revolver, which was called the “Snake”,began, back in the mid seventies, with the TV series, "Starsky and Hutch". Yea,I’m that old. The Blue Colt python, with six inch barrel, that Hutch carried, was the high light of the show, for me.

I bought one,New, Blue, with the six inch barrel and a custom trigger job, from the factory. Double action, was smooth as silk. I never shot anything but magnum loads in it. Very fine piece. I traded it for something benchrest related, “Arrrgh”

One like that now in, excellent condition, would cost as much as a new Benchrest Rifle.

It couldn't of been in the original Richard Roundtree movie because that was I think the early 70's and the 8" Python didn't come out until 1980. I remember that because I bought my 6" in Nov of 79 and the 8" came out the next year. The only fault of the Python is that if you did a lot of shooting the cylinder was prone to go out of timing.

a new S&W K frame kit gun that had failed to get the S&W logo stamp on the left side of the frame with Larry Higgins for a mint 4" Python in the late 70s. I shot the gun a few times and just did not like the grips, grip shape and sights. I sold it. Sorry I did only because of the run up in price. As Pag said, the bluing and polish was nice. I have some old Colts revolvers...and the one that stands out is a 357 Magnum model. They made some great revolvers. Does anyone know what is going on with them these days? I know the declared bankruptcy but I've heard several rumors that they may go under??
