More good feedback, thanks. It's evident that my decision will be based partly on budget, and depending on what happens later this year, I may indeed get that fine Kimber. 1911s are my all time fave of course, but a nice DA/striker pistol would also be good. I'm open to suggestions and will make my decision later this year. I'm obviously on a budget so I can't just buy 5-6 new pistols on a whim. Sigh.
re the GAP cartridge, I actually chatted with Gunny about this when it was first introduced, at the NRA show. "Gunny" (R. Lee Ermey) is a spokesperson for Glock, as you may know. I found him a very cool guy, smart as you might think, very nice fella too.
I'm also sure the GAP is a nice round, but it's damn expensive to shoot, and I've got about 5 gazillion boxes of .45 ACP practice ammo on the closet shelf.
Ask anyone about the Phoenix HP22A and they’ll all say the same thing “if it weren’t for the damn safetys this gun would be awesome”. Yes, a Phoenix that’s pretty awesome. It’s got a solid heavy frame, looks great, and eats 22LR like candy. There are mods on the market. Everything going for it...
Well I finally broke down and bought the .45 version of this. I’ve been heehawing around about it for months, ever since I bought the 9mm late last year. I gave the 9mm a glowing review last year. I hope this one lives up to the previous experience.
I have been thinking of buying a Desert Eagle (still between a 50ae and 44 mag; will prob get conversion for both). Am really inclined to ordering the Tungsten Gold one; you know because of the cool factor and all ;)
But my question is: Is the gold paint actually resistant, or maybe...
