My USP .45 has never let down. That gun has saved my ass from self inflicted danger at least 4 times so far.+P, HP,FMJ, +P frangible, my hottest reloads, wet and muddy, SAVES MY ASS. :clap: :agree:
No offense to anyone, but I lump XD's in the same class as S&W autos; ROUNDFILE! :furious: :wall: There is something about that Croatian gun that I just don't trust. My dad has one in 40SW and I'm just not impressed. Don't trust it, inacurate as all let out...
Can't go too wrong with a glock 17 either (mine is 2nd gen, flame away?)
Edit: Sorry long post; but interesting tidbit I just recalled:
About 4 months ago my buddy was going to his CCW qualie with his Sig 229 in .40sw. He has had the gun about 2 years and maybe put around 500 rounds through it. On his fith shot, (using reloads he bought at a gun show, in the gun's defense)( and to give you an idea of his inteligence level for that day at least) the gun suffered a catostrophic malfunction and somehow blew the firing pin and retaining system to Hades.
Who knows, maybe a double charge...I no longer want a 229 anyway though. Just can't bring myself to buy a 40. 10mm maybe...
It's NEVER the gun or equipment. It's the shooter.
I compete with glocks, .40, 9mm, g34, 17, 19, 23, subcompacts, you name it.
I also shoot a different pistol every match. I have no problems with them, but have seen them fail. The problem comes when you get people saying this "never fails" etc.
All guns fail. They're made by people and thereby imperfect.
I was at GT's the other day, a police distributor, and behind the counter one staff fanboy went, word for word, "I love my glock, because everytime I pull that trigger, it goes bang."
Well, gee. Duh. What ignorance. Glocks fail just like all other guns. On the flipside, everyone and their mom has told me not to use lead rounds in glocks, and the last one I used has had over 5000k handloaded lead rounds through it in matches. It shot beautifully on steel.
I don't dislike any gun, I'll shoot whatever you put in my hand, it's when people glorify their equipment that they realize shooting them is more important, instead of letting them sit in your safe so you can take them out and boast about them.
Edit: WOW JAY, you HAD to go post before me and take the words right outta my mouth. :lmao:
