  1. The SR9 and SR9c have been on My List for a long time.
  2. ^^^Nice! I never did replace my G19. It has, however, been mostly relegated to range duty. My Shield 1.0 serves as CC, but its big brother, the 4" PC Shield 45 2.0 will soon move into that role. I still want, well, all kinds of other guns. I'm just not sure I can bring myself to let go of a perfectly good gun. Just gotta save up for the others, I guess.
  3. I got to handle one that a buddy bought this past week, and it seemed kind of neat. I'd have enjoyed spending a little more time with it.
  4. Circling back to my question of whether the G44 is 'legendary,' what occurs to me is that Glock has always been very conservative. The G44 is (as far as I know) first Glock in history that was ever designed as anything other than a defensive handgun. Sure, you could carry a .22LR, but it's not really considered an acceptable defensive caliber. Everything else Glock makes (or has ever made, I think) has been a polymer-framed, striker-fired pistol, chambered in something suitable for defense of one's person. Up until just a few years ago, Glock didn't even make single-stacks. Glock will sell a ton of them, and that's cool. I wouldn't mind shooting one, personally.
  5. As a trainer, I will admit that I'd prefer it came with a 15-round magazine, to make it as similar as possible to a G19/23/32, but that's certainly not the end of the world. And it does make sense to have a 10-rounder available for thse more restrictive states. You're right about that. As for me, I find the G44 interesting, but I won't be trading in my Ruger on one.
  6. As is always, there was a lot of hype. Most of it centered around the arrival of something "legendary." So Glock rolled out its first .22LR today, G19-sized, but only holding 10 rounds. https://us.glock.com/en/pistols/g44 Is it legendary? Do you want one? Thoughts?
  7. There's a huge market for smaller and lighter, and it's not just "people without much firearms experience." They're just easier to carry than full-sized guns. And while I can conceal a full-sized pistol, and have done so, it's a pain in the behind by comparison.
  8. The tapered barrel has more of the 'classic Mark' look that I'm used to, but I have no complaints about how my wife's 22/45 Target model shoots.
  9. Congratulations! She's a beauty. I've only ever shot one CZ, but one magazine made me go, "Oh. NOW I get it." The ergos on that pistol (a 75D Compact?) were out of this world.
  10. Mossberg has a long history of dependable shotguns at very reasonable prices. The Maverick follows in that tradition.
  11. Volquartsen is having a clearance sale on Ruger Mark IV Target uppers. I’m guessing they use the lowers for their own pistols. It has a serial number, so you will need an FFL. I bought one ($25 + $15 shipping + transfer) to go on my Mark IV 22/45 Lite lower. Yes, it fits. Yes, it functions. https://volquartsen.com/inventory_configurations/3950?clearance=1
  12. Just finished some peanut butter toast, which is a pretty standard breakfast for me. Last night, though .... I had ahi tuna tacos with a habanero sauce that were amazing. Got a tomato-cucumber-mint salad and refried pintos with bacon as my side dishes and feasted nicely.
