How's kimber's quality been lately. I know i read for awhile before i bought my STI that they went downhill a little or maybe for the price there was better options. Lots of really nice looking 1911's out there now. Shot a friends Springfield prodigy that was decent too.

I bought a pro carry 2 a few months back. 300ish rounds thru it without an issue. Nice and light for a 1911 beings it has an aluminum frame vs steel

I’ve got a 10MM itch to scratch.

I wouldn't mind having a Ruger Mark II for plinking around the farm but hardly ever see them except for online auctions. Can only FFL holders bid on handguns online ? Or could I bid and have it shipped to a FFL ?

On an online auction, one should be able to bid with the expectation of being able to have shipped to an approved gun dealer.

I have a S&W M&P 10mm that i really like so far. Not a ton of rounds through it but it has been flawless and i cant really speak of its accuracy because i'm a terrible pistol shot but i shoot it ok. I also picked up a S&W 5.7 but the jury is out on that one yet if i like it or not. It's fun to shoot but i'm not a fan of the barrel shroud and not barrel being threaded and i locked my suppressor on it after about 50 rounds and had to send to Dead Air to get it removed and they said they have had a lot of problems with the 5.7 smith and wessons and stuck suppressors. I think my next one will be a 38 super or 9mm 1911.

I’d watch Bismanonline every couple days, I think there is one there now.

On the 10MM front I'm back and forth between a long-slide Glock or a Kimber 1911 style. Someday I'll walk into the right gun shop @ the right time and my decision will be made for me.

I have a Glock model 40 with a 6.7 inch Alpha Wolf threaded barrel. I had a Sigv320 X10 for a couple of months. It was very accurate, but you could only push five rounds of the wide nose hard cast bear defence rounds into it. I didn't like getting ride of it because the trigger was excellent, but even wide nose hollow points hung up on the magazine catch notch.
I solved the problem by selling the Sig and buying a Holosun green dot closed emitter that goes on and comes off the model 40 in seconds. So take it off and put it in the chest holster and I'm ready for hunting in the mountains with the grandkid with no rifle for myself.

Yikes! Up to $2k for that trp. They look pretty sweet, but that's twice what I paid for my Kimber.

I picked up a Rock Island 1911 10mm with adjustable rear sight a couple years ago for around $550. So far I don't have any complaints for the money, I'm not a great pistol shooter so need to practice more

Handguns are a bit different than rifles. IMO rifles are much easier to shoot well. Handguns in general have a lot more going on. It’s not uncommon for folks to have issues. MOST people don’t pick up a handgun and have immediate success. No matter what they choose.

Just some generalizations from observations I’ve made throughout the years.

I remember one time in particular. A pard of mine, and SDMF may remember this, had a Beretta M9 he was having trouble with. Basically “It don’t shoot syndrome”.

Anyway to make a long story short, it did shoot, and it shot very well! When I tried to instruct him he wasn’t interested. Or his ego got in the way, one of the two or both. Such is life…

He tried to sell it to me….why would I want a POS M9? 😎😂

They don’t shoot.

I have the worst pistol-shooting form and flinch known to man.

YERK the trigger and dip the muzzle, even w/22’s. It’s ugly like Charles Barkley’s drive off the tee.

I'm right with you. If it comes to hitting an intruder, I better grab the pistol grip shotgun loaded with .00.

Nah, you’re not that bad. You’re exaggerating.

The dude that had the M9 was/is though!!! 😂

Mags much cheaper for the Glock. I just can’t stand all the plastic. I myself would like the Ruger GP100 in 10mm

I watched a police shootout on the news and two cops were holding their handguns sideways like gangsters and spraying lead . Is that the way they were trained or what the heck were they doing ?
