For months, I have been wanting a 1911 to use as a carry gun, but have yet to find one within my price range (it has to go through private sale due to me not being 21 quite yet, which severely limits my choices out there) I just found a beautiful stainless Beretta 92FS 9mm for $650 (could probably talk him down some). I'm stuck between guns now.

I plan on eventually having both, but can only get one now.

I can see pros and cons for each of them. Seems like the biggest complaint on the Beretta was the large grips, but I have large hands, so that does not matter. Ammo cost is also a factor, but I plan on reloading so that may not be that big of a deal.

Any suggestions? I could get the Beretta tonight if I want it. I could get the 1911 as soon as I find one within my price range, that's for sale by an individual.

Here's what the Beretta looks like.

If quality used is OK CDNN has several 5906 and 6905 9MM that I love I just bought several 6906s for $369@ They were FBI trade-ins and seem flawless - - - I have carried a 6906 CC for about a year now - - - it is about 2# lighter and 1" shorter in both length and height and is 12+1.

They have some 5906s ( 15+1) for about $20 less.

My sister makes the concealed comfort holsters and as you can see they conform themselves to many different firearms - - - note the 6906 and a BodyGuard 380

Just like weight LOSS supplements, they're designed to work in conjunction with a change of lifestyle.

In this case, the change of lifestyle being a dedicated weight training regimen.
Okay sounds good. I don't care to loose much weight. I get down around 200 and that's as low as I wanna go. 215 is my happy place. I like having some belly on me. I think I'm 240 ATM so I can stand to loose some.

You can't drive yourself to hard out here. Not enough down time to recoup. Depending on the cook, eating a "diet" menu is outta the equation.

Ok I may look into it and take a smaller size of the recommendation. There is some on this boat, but I'm not sure how old etc it is.

1911 vs beretta? No debate. Get the classic.

The day my brother left his wife (way too late), a bird showed up and started to make all kinds of racket all night long. It makes multiple sounds, like a mockingbird. That was a few years ago, and I still hear it occasionally.

Well, I didn't get far. They guy texted me and said his wife got called in, so he couldn't meet tonight. That's ok, I didn't feel like making a 4 hour round trip tonight anyways. I'm picking it up tomorrow instead.

What's w/the scowl? With the tats it makes you look like a poser. Oh, wait, you WERE posing! LOL
