And there's a lawsuit filed, with a couple more to follow.

Thanks for the followup link. Interesting

Favorite pistol - Plain Beretta 92FS with night sights. I like the normal grip serrations instead of the non-sharp checkering Beretta uses on certain models.

Favorite rifle - FN PS90. I have owned many rifles over the years - this is still my favorite.

The S&W Shield 2.0 is tried and true, also less expensive.

Nothing wrong with an alternative.

If no one came out with new guns, we would not have any new guns  :P

Apparently, Beretta has released its new APX Carry gun:

Apparently, you can order them here:

As striker fired guns are not really my thing, I doubt I will order one. Plus, I like to have a bit more rounds in my carry gun. But, I did once own a couple of M&P Shields. Should be around the same size.

Welcome aboard, and glad you saw my post there and joined here. Happy to have ya. Welcome aboard.

Nice collection of guns ya got there!

I am satisfied with 9mm. I have owned many 45 ACP guns. But when shooting at the range, I get fatigued faster when shooting 45 ACP. I have slight tremors in my left hand from a childhood accident (I have mentioned it before). And, that hand starts shaking more after a few mags of 45.

I can shoot faster, longer and with more accuracy over a longer duration with 9mm.

I have shot a few 40 S&W guns over the year s- I only ever owned one. A Beretta PX4. Softest shooting 40 I ever owned. But even then - I like 9mm more.

Shot placement is king.

I carried a fullsize FS for 3 years straight - many years back. It IS heavy.

When i first posted it, he was not arrested. They updated the story....

Listening to this:

Homeowner shoots man in his St. Paul yard who police say fled from stolen car

A sign visible in the home’s front window reads, “No Trespassing,” and “Violators will be shot. Survivors will be shot again!”

I loved Miami Vice. So, a white, 80s vintage Testarossa.

I was partial to the black Ferrari Daytona that Crocket started with. It was a replica built on a Corvette chassis, but it was still cool.

Yes, I remembered that the Daytona was not original. But, I still liked the white Testarossa more

Defensive Tactics / Re: Accuracy: Combat or Target?
« on: April 15, 2019, 03:14:15 PM »
I think over 90% of self defense shootings are less than 7 yards, with the vast majority under 3 yards.

Still... I want target accuracy - that translates to combat accuracy.

I shoot a target on a sheet of paper. It is reversed colored. White inner circle, and black outer circle. Much, much easier to shoot at than a black inner circle.

If I can put an entire mag inside of the smaller white circle - at 7 yards, target shooting, I am satisfied with that. I have slight tremors in my left hand that has gotten a little worse as I have gotten older. But, I notice that it lessens if I go shoot in the afternoon as opposed to the morning.

I always wish I can shoot better - but when I shoot with my favorite gun, I am usually one of the better shooters on the range. I do well enough. Because of physical limitations, I've gotten about as accurate in target shooting as I can be.

For $5k, it better include a ride on the Alien's mothership.  :P :th_thicon_lol:

Looks interesting but 5K?  At that price the Alien pistol just alienated the majority of handgun enthusiasts.

Sho nuff  :afraid4:
