Official caliber war thread(Handguns)


#74

What I have heard is less than 5 shots fired in total - bad guy(s) plus good guy(s) - is the average, best that can be determined. However, if I recall correctly, Paul Harrell said the statistics are very hard to get and what you do get may not be reliable.

Still, larger capacity (filled with bullets) is generally a good thing.

Though, I am pretty sure Ayoob (at least) would say something about not carrying too much as it might/would imply you were looking for a gun fight.

Whenever someone who is thinking about buying a handgun and concealed carrying ask me what they should get I always answer “something your going to carry and not leave at home because its uncomfortable or feels like a burden”. I own several pistols from 17 round 9’mm’s to a 7 round S&W Shield 45 and I’ve carried a 5" colt 1911 45 ACP more than anything else. The 1911 is my favorite pistol it just feels natural to me and a good single action trigger cant be beat but its a good size chunk of metal to carry day in day out. Since I’ve bought the Shield it gets carried more than anything else if it was a 9mm it would still get carried more . I think we make caliber and capacity way bigger issues than they really are but it gives us something to debate.

Excellent answer 28lx. If you don’t feel right carrying it, and leave it at home, it won’t do you much good. My standard carry is a compact 1911, and I haven’t left her at home in years. I started to leave her one day, but she cried so hard I just had to take her with me…

#78

Bunmp…lots of new faces , im curious what their preferences are.


#79

Even though I don’t have one 10mm for the win


#80

more I shot it 7.62 x 25
it has knocked my love of .38super


#81

Huh…now thats telling me if I get the chance to check it out :wink:


#82

it’s limited on platform but has been seen on a SIG 226 clone and a 1911 (may have been a .38super rebarreled).
my most recent purchase (like yesterday was a 1944 Izzy TT-33 with a spam can and about 500 boxed/lose rounds for $500US.


#83

What other rounds would you compare it too? Shooting wise, Is it more like a 9mm or more like a 10mm?


#84

5.7x28


#85

To be more accurate, 357 sig.


#86

I wonder why it is not more popular here? Ive never even seen one.


#87

Father-in-law has a Glock chambered in .357 sig and it’s quite an awesome round. It’s definutely a two legged animal stopper.

#89

.357 sig or 7.62x25?


#90

The 7.62x25, ive owned a .357 sig and liked it.


#91

Slightly off topic but I’d love to get a PCC in .357 sig. That would be a hoot.


#92

I really liked Lucky Gunner’s video on .357 Sig. But I don’t think it will replace my current carry anytime soon.

I will watch it when I’m off work. I’m at 15.7 at the moment and finishing off another 6 hours at the moment.
