Handguns and Revolvers / FYI - Springfield XD - $280
« on: June 13, 2019, 02:12:10 PM »
It comes with 10 round mags - but still. For $280 - that's a steal.

Once again - not sure why someone would buy a Taurus over this....

Springfield lowered the MSRP on these to around $335 recently. But for $280 - great price!

Subcompact also available:

Handguns and Revolvers / Sigs and slide stop lever
« on: June 11, 2019, 09:13:43 AM »
Is it just me, or anyone else ever get driven nuts by the location of the Sig slide stop lever?

It is too far back. I own no Sigs now, but I have owned 7 or 8 of them over the years. It takes a LOT of effort for me to not hit it as I shoot. Then, when the mag is empty, the slide doesn't lock back because of it.

I am fine shooting 1 handed, but this is always a problem for me when shooting with 2 hands. I've kinda just given up on it and accepted the fact whenever I shoot a Sig. You do not usually see other brands mount that lever quite so far to the rear.

What do you use to access the forum THE MOST (what 1 device most often - even if it is occasionally more than one)?

Please take the poll...

What is your ideal self-defense handgun trigger weight?

3lbs? 5lbs? 8lbs?

For me, I prefer DA/SA. I like about 4.5lbs in SA, and about 8lbs in DA
