That is surprizeing our Secret Service used those for awhile. The MP5 i shot at a range in Nevada wasn't bad.
It had the option of a three round burst though. That was the first time i had ever used something like that.

bother her. So when the LC9 comes back from repair she wants it for her purse and car as her CCW.

Im now a happy camper. It was just hard for me to adjust to a pistol that didn't have a hammer.
Old school and the habits die hard. Every time i looked at her Glock, i asked her are you sure that thing isn't going to go off?
" David your buddie Bennie was killed by his Glock because it was loaded and he was drunk and playing
around with it". Yeah, his father said the same thing.

There is just something about striker fire that creeps me out. But they are the majority of gun sales now.

Me too! My preferred revolver since I got my first no dash 6 inch 686 back in 1981. Many rounds later and the forcing cone, top strap and the first 3/4 inches of the rifling were gone. I don't know how many rounds were fired through that gun....however many spent small pistol primers that it takes to fill a 5 gallon bucket to the 3/4 full mark. Ha! I would give up up every gun that I own before parting with my 686.

I don't shoot nearly as much as I did back then but the water under the bridge in regards has made me pretty good with mine. I have a Ruger GP100 Match Champion that I have messed with that is a close second but I still prefer the 686!

Had a GP 100. I liked it because it looked like a Python. It shot well and was very accurate. But it wouldn't eject 357 shells, only 38, without beating them out. Sent it back they polished the cylinder, then it worked but I lost all confidence in it.
Fool me once Ruger shame on you. Fool me twice shame on me.

Ruger lol. I have a 10/22 but it is no competition for my H&K 270.

Only one handgun? That seems so boring I'm not going to even consider the question.

I want one that works when I'm afraid I might need it. And doesn't shoot only one round before screwing up. Ruger.

Ruger, you send that back to me. I'm going to put 500 rounds through it.
CZ did 250 no problem. You can't match that?

I don't trust Ruger. Your loyalty isn't worth my life . Punk running around late at night with a gun seeing what he could steal.One shot in the air he ran away. Second shot the new Ruger gun didn't work. Ruger, what if he hadn't ran away? Call 911? Well we did, took them an hour to get here. Thanks Ruger for your fine quality.
