    Gun Shopping today

    I am headed to the Tri-County Gun Show today at the Allen County Fairgrounds with 2 of my friends. We are going to check out some different firearms and see what we like, ask some questions, get the feel for some and price them out.

    After that, we're headed to his "gun guy" who sells new firearms for only 5% over his price from the makers. Not too bad. It should be an interesting day, to say the least.

    Here are the guns I'm looking at:

    Armalite AR-180B
    http://www.cruffler.com/review-January-02.html

    This gun would be for "fun" and going to the range and to some homemade gun ranges that people have in the country.



    An interesting note: the AR-180B is more accurate than the M-16/AR-15. (See chart on above page.)

    -----

    Sig Sauer .40
    http://www.sigarms.com/products/handguns.asp

    I'm not really sure here. I would like to see them in person to get a feel. However, I think .40 is the way to go (stopping power) and they have good track records as far as accuracy and dependability.

    Well, I'm hoping to get the 3rd part of that scenario today.



    We'll have to see if I have the cajones to order it when the time comes. LOL

    I may have to just settle for a Mustang Cobra or something of the sort. Or maybe my plane in about 15 years.

    Well, I went to the gun show, but couldn't go to that guy's house. He was sick.

    I'll probably go on Monday evening with the other two. This sucks.

    I saw the AR-180B and it is AWESOME. I want one bad now.

    Also, the Sig is pretty damn nice. I liked the feel of the Ruger in my hand, too. I was checking out Berettas and those are nice as well. I think my buddy is going to get an H&K .45. Now, that was a nice gun, for sure. Whew.

    They had a couple of .50 calibur pistols. Wow ! It was almost 2 feet long. LOL

    Armalite sucks.


    If you are looking at a AR-15/M-16 type rifle look at either Colt or Bushmaster.


    Sig is good.


    I'm a HK guy myself.



    I prefer a .45ACP over a .40S&W


    More stopping power in the .45 obviously, and it's alot more fun to shoot.
    Respect it.

    ArmaLite sucks?

    Reasons?

    Also, I meant I like the .45. That is what I'll get in a pistol.

    Sorry, it wasn't a .50 pistol, it was the revolver. (Not Desert Eagle, more S&W.)

    The quality on the ArmaLite stuff is suspect. From what I understand they don't make anything. They just buy different parts and throw them together.


    I own a Bushmaster that is top notch.

    More expensive but worth it.
    Respect it.

    A revolver is a pistol. Just not semi automatic.

    I wouldn't **** with that .50 calibre gun either. It'll give you a splitting headache just firing the damn thing.
    Respect it.

    What model of Bushmaster do you have ?

    I was checking them out and the Bushmaster 16" Modular Carbine and the Bushmaster M4 Type Modular Carbine look pretty nice. I want something that accepts the M16/AR15 magazines because the 9 round magazine just won't cut it.

    Damn politicians. If we get rid of large magazines, we'll get rid of crime ! Yea!



    Thoughts?

    XM15-A2S


    Is what I have.

    There are a multitude of Pre Ban magazines for it. Largest I've seen are 40 round mags.
    Respect it.
