    Because I can afford to shoot it all day, unlike a couple of my others.

    Brad,

    Thanks for the comments. You didn't tell me anything I didn't already notice.....you are sooooooooooooo right, the video does point out everything.

    I took the fastest draw out of that video sequence and slowed it to 25% of regular speed and made it into a video. You can clearly hear the gun clearing the SERPA holster. LOL! OUCH! The mistakes really show up at slow speed....even a better tool than just the regular video.

    We installed a Springer Precision spring kit on my buddy's XD9 this past weekend. I was pretty impressed with the results. He'll be at Front Sight this weekend for a 2 day handgun skill builder....if it doesn't pass muster on the 1st day, he's falling back to his 1911 Kimber for the 2nd day. There is a LOT of reset in the XD factory trigger. Between my bad habits and it, my trigger finger is getting a lot of excercise.

    Re: #1 shooting gun

    I voted for 9mm. I like shooting my Ruger pistol and nine is fairly cheap. It was a toss up between the 9mm and the .22. The .22 it alot of fun to and realy cheap.
    And I wanted to post up a Big thanks to Mark (CarolinaRubi) for hookin me up with the Remington .22 stuff, thanks buddy it is much appreciated!
    ..........and I'll post up a couple of pics of the guns when I get home.

    If you guys are waiting until the bad guy is close enough to hear any firearm "racking"...you're 1 step behind the bad guy, IMO. A defense weapon should always be chambered.

    I've got a Henry .22 lever action rifle that's pretty fun to shoot. Cheap rounds make it more fun than if all rounds cost the same though.

    My favorite and most accurate handgun is close between two CZs...a 97B .45acp and a 75B in 9mm. Both tack drivers.

    Colt Delta Elite 10mm Auto.
    Load up with 175 grain LSWCs @ 1000 fps for target shooting and playing around, or 180 grain JHPs @ 1300 fps for more serious stuff.

    Makes me chuckle when I read on some of the gun forums, especially glocktalk, (because of glocks lack of a mechanical saftey other than the trigger saftey) when guys ask if they shoud carry chambered or not.
    sorry....

    As you may be aware, in Arizona you cannot fire a warning shot. That being the case, if you find yourself in a situation and you want to keep it from escalating, I feel that a very strong message is sent by "racking a round". You're letting someone know that whoever they are dealing with has equally bad intentions and is capable of executing them (the "intentions"). Even if I had a round chambered (shotgun or pistol), I'd be inclined to rack a fresh one just to get the word out; that I was up, aware and ready. There is truly no mistaking the sound, even for "newbie" bad guys. With few, very few exceptions (like in combat, real military or police style combat), would you ever likely be called upon to pull and fire instantaneously. Keep your eyes peeled and follow the steps of awareness; there are, unfortunately, bad guys everywhere.

    I respect what you are saying but, that is not what I was taught in CCW class.
    They showed us how most actual CCW shootings where split second decisions and they showed us many exapmles of how they happen, no matter how "alert" a person might have been.

    My line on this is: Keep it on you ALWAYS, concealed means concealed, watch your strong side, keep it chambered, dont pull it unkless you are gonna 100% use it. Pray you never have to pull it.

    sorry again OFF TOPIC
