    But it's not a .40! Might as well be a BB gun

    I weighed my options. I really wanted the double stack .45. But it wasn't avaiable. This was already available, and under the first responders program for Sig it was a good price. 9mm won't beat it up as much (one of the deciding factors) and Its going to be an heirloom piece so I want to stay in good condition longer instead of the round putting more wear on it than either .45 or 9mm and 9mm ammo will be more available down the road than most pistol cartridges so when it gets passed on ammo will be easier to be had. Plus I liked how easy my M9 was to shoot so this will be similar sort of.

    Oh I guarantee you it'll be better than the M9, P226's are comfy

    Daily reminder John Moses Browning would think you were a dummy for sticking with the 1911 over his slick new & improved BHP

    I think 1911s are good guns. They are badass and proven service pistols in a badass caliber. But I don't like 1911s for me personally. They feel a bit thin in my hand, their not the most comfortable for me, neither are the double stack 1911s. There are more comfortable guns for my hands. The Sig 226 and 229 feel great. Even the sig 220 feels a tad thin in comparison to the 229 and 226 but it still had a good grip. I'm not a big fan of having to disengage safeties on handguns to fire them. I'm more partial to da/sa guns with a safety/decocker that I can carry with the safety off or striker fired without manual safeties. I like the FNX setup actually because it gives you a good deal of options on how you want to carry it, cocked and locked like a 1911, or da/sa safety off or on.

    At the moment I feel that lower bore axis concept seems overrated and falls lower on the characteristics that effect overall performance most importantly accuracy and overall performance in comparison to other characteristics.

    The only good way to carry an FNX-45 is cocked and locked, since the DA is suuuuuper long and the trigger feels really far forward. Handlets need not apply, re: carrying it DA

    @Mantis Toboggan DSA has Moses mags in stock for $28, they used to be like $48. DSA's mags can be alright, but if you plan on getting, any get ONE and see if your gun likes them, as they don't feed well in some rifles. Have a rasp handy for some light fitting

    For the first two years of owning an FAL, I only had 3 mags just because they're such a pain to find in good shape. Gotta spread the knowledge

    For me it was a toss-up between the FAL and the M14. I went M14, but still think I might need to get a FAL.

    Well, after round 2 at the range and shooting the 6 she liked the best from before the wife has settled on the PPQ M2. I really wanted her to get the VP9, but it kept jamming on her. I think she just wasn't holding it strong enough and hasn't been cleaned in forever, it was filthy. I shot 10 rounds through with no issues and it would jam on her about every other shot. But, once she had that many failures to feed she couldn't get the bad taste out of her mouth and I couldn't in good conscience push her toward it. I don't think the PPQ is inadequate in any way and from what I can tell should prove to be an awesome gun. Now to see what kind of deals are out there on them.
