For those folks who rode New Years Day, the polar bear pins finally made it here. About damn time. Stop by the shop if you want to pick yours up.

depends tj?
40 has more knock down power. seems that 9mm might be more accurate and a little cheaper to shoot.

i guess 9mm then. i plan to shoot for recreation, not really protection. If it has to go to protection then it does, but the main purpose is to knock over targets. Which has the best balance between performance and price: S&W, taurus, rugar, glock or springfield. Im look at this S&W brushed stainless sigma for $329.

If your not worried about protection get a .22 pistol. You can get a brick of 500 .22 rounds for $20 when a box of 100 rounds of 9mm cost about the same or just a bit more.

I have fired a Sigma in .40. Not a fan of it by any means. I have fired a Glock 21 in .45 and yes the Glock was $200 more, it was a world of difference. The Sigma felt cheap and the tr***** was crap. It has around a 12lbs tr***** pull compared to the 5lbs of a Glock. My brother-in-law is the one who has the Sigma, and he hasn't had any reliability issues, but he also hasn't used it much. However, if you do decide you want to give the Sigma a try, shop around and keep an eye out, I see them go for $249 a lot on Bud's Gun Shop.

I don't have a whole lot of experience, but I have been soaking up all the knowledge and information I can for awhile about them, so I would recommend a xD or Glock before the Sigma. I think you'd be much much happier.

The .22 for recreational shooting is great though. My wife and I go shoot my .22 rifle at the range quite often and it costs hardly anything.

loved my ac12.
I loved my ac12 as well. I had a cl15 before that and I picked up the ac12 on clearance. No comparison between the two. Unfortunately I got crash test the ac12. It held up admirably. Didn't knock anything loose that wasn't already.:)

I replaced it with an fs15 and I freaking love that helmet. Very comfy.

I had a Sigma back in the day, and hated it. Sold it within a month. You cant go wrong with a XD or XDM. Also the Smith M&P's are great! I just bought one a couple of weeks ago, its a 40 compact model. It's overall about the same size as the XD sub-compact, but it deffinatlly feels thinner, and holds one more round. I have a XDM 40, and love it also, but the M&P is my carry, and the XDM is my nightstand gun, with laser/light! :) As far as 9mm/40/45 You really need to shoot each, and see which YOU do best with!


P.S. 40 was easier to find than 9mm for awhile, and 40 is only a couple bux more per 50.........

And i got my M&P 40c because all i need is a 90 dollar 357 barrel from smith to shoot 357 sig!!!!!!! :)

Well me and the family stopped and walked around bass pro and cabelas on Saturday and it was nice to get out. If you really like to pay way to much for firearms it's a great place to piss a lot of money away. I know ammo is high, but 50 rounds of 45acp that is copper jacked for 39.99 is bull shit. This is why people are buying every thing they can find because it's so fricken high and just keeps going up. This shit needs to end soon. I think I'm going to buy a sig masketo that is a 22 pistol for people who don't know so I can go out to the range and shoot. Everything else is either to high or you can't find it to shoot it

hey glen you can get a conv. berrel for you 1911. i looked at the sig 22 and they are really nice, but not all that accurate from what i have read. i hear they are a really good training gun.

I looked at the sig, pretty nice! From what I've read, you pretty much have to run the CCI Mini-Mag ammo for functionality's sake. I have REALLY been eyeballin AR-15's as of late :) I may buy all the parts and build one. Anyone here have one? Thoughts?

skip the mosquito and get a walther p22. They are cheaper and just as accurate. Mine will swallow remington bulk ammo all day long and keep coming back for more.
I priced both, and I can get either for about 300 bux. The walther is just SO SMALL!!!!!!!!!! lol

I don't like how the mags drop from all walther and I had a sig before and it had no problems with any ammo I ran through it. I can buy either at about 250 from a dealer buddy of mine. It would be later summer early fall before I could get either one. I have looked into a 1911 convertion kit to shoot 22 but you have to get the slide custom fitted to work so I will pass plus the convertion kit gose for around 200 to 300. So you don't save any money. I hAd a dpms ar-15 and sold it just because it was not a weapon I could really do anything with otherthan target shoot with it. If I can't shoot it for fun plus hunt with it I don't need or want it.

i dont know how you guys feel about this, if we are planning to do some more out of state riding, i feel we should have a patch or something to represent where we originated from. ( i know im from stl and not semo but not the point) we could design a patch that had Southeast Missouri on it. Need like a name also. ex: semo riders, emerson brigde on it...etc. Shaped as the state with southeast portion highlighted. what are you thoughts?

Ooh Ooh we can get matching fringed leather vests and tatoos across our knuckes that say F-R-O-M S-E-M-O so everyone will know that these pirate looking, patch wearing, biker gangsters are from Missouruh! (hahahahaha TJ)

I'll pass. My license plate says Missouri on it. That's enough for me.
