    Also, whats a good gun, ? something that will just blow someones brains out, and slatter them all over the sidewalk! :D :haha:

    Just in case because its a cruel world out there, better safe than sorry....

    just from reading that post ... I don't think you should have a gun.


    however


    if you wanna put someones brains all over a sidewalk, one can't argue with the power of a twelve gauge. Reminton 870 Express is a good choice


    :D

    I've carried a couple sidearms in my day. If you happen to go with a Beretta 9mm, I have a TON of magazines and stuff for it.

    The best sidearm I ever carried was a Heckler and Koch .45. It never jammed, and I cleaned it maybe one time in 4 months of dragging it through the field, and it never, ever had a problem. Plus it was light, and it had some brain blowin power.:haha:

    Had a chance to shoot a Webley awhile back, it was saweet!

    Have no idea what the California laws are. Here in Texas, for a Pistol, you have to wait a few days, but that's about it. Rifles are like buying a gallon of milk. :eek1:

    So what kind of a gun do you want? Pistol, rifle, cannon, or what?
    home defence? plinking? range shooting? or just something to take out and blow away the side of a mountain with?

    from the sounds of it, he's looking for something for home protection. personally, for his application, i'd stick with something physically small. being used for home security, a long gun will be considerably less maneuverable indoors. that could be VERY bad.

    I think the H&K .45 would be perfect for something like that. Very easy to move around, smaller than most other .45s, and you can clear a room with it. no problem.

    Even though the Webley would be awesome.

    wait for the mossberg 500 to go on sale at Big 5
    200 or a little more out the door, 10 day waiting period, comes with 2 barrels short for home defence, and long for target, hunting etc.
    If you get a hadgun the Springfield XD .40 id tough to beat for accuracy as well as price. The .40 round is balstically better than the .45 (stops bad guys better)
    but in cali to own a hand gun you need to take the handgun saftey class, 50-100 bucks.
    Buy it off gunbroker, get it dhipped to a FFL, there was a guy i shipped mine to his name was bob, cool guy. costs about 35 bucks for the x-fer fee.

    If you speaking of self defense, I would definaly recommend staying with the .45 ACP cartridge. Many manufacturers produce models that chamber this round. I believe for personal carry, you need a firearm that is not unwieldy or large. Something compact, that has no sharp edges from sights, hammer, etc that can cause it to snag were it to be drawn fast.

    I carry the Springfield Champion .45. Its is a smaller version of the 1911 automatic. It is single action auto which is differant from a double action and thus must be carried and operated a little differant than you would a Ruger or a Sig. But for me I would carry nothing buit a 1911.

    The Springfield also comes with standard upgrades, such as extended beavertail, skeletonized trigger, ambidextrous extended safety, extended ejection port, polished feed ramp.
    :D

    But will they allow you to carry rocks with it, or do those have to be in a seperate lockbox?

    No natural aggregate is allowed.. Only synthetically produced, green friendly, orbs of death...

    haha, I just reminded myself of Sandler in "Big Daddy" where the kid wipes out like 50 pidgeons... :haha:
