I want to get a .40 cal. A .38 cal and my next rifle will be an AR 15. I been looking at one that's all polymer lower. It's made by local gun store here in Vegas. Its a really nice gun.

I hope I get my CCW early to as well but this is Vegas. Everything but the casinos run in slow motion in this town. I am also getting my Utah CCW cause it's reciprocity for 32 states. Yay.
Apply the Florida as well. I got both the Utah & Florida

A bunch of people around here are not big fans of the polymer lower AR's...ask opinions before you buy. or there are plenty of threads about them already.

I agree with Flat, you can do better than a polymer AR. The lower receiver is about 5oz lighter than a standard 7075 T6 aluminum but still it's not so hard putting together a very lightweight AR using quality parts that will last.

I could never down grade the barrel size even though I know it can be done. Shooting a .50 cal is to damn awesome.
The 9mm and the 45ACP are perfect self defence and carry weapons.

If shooting either one is the same for you, then of course go with the 45ACP.

Good luck.

Agree - there is just something about the simplicity and reliability of a 357 revolver. For home defense or self defense there is an intimidation factor of seeing those hollow points in the cylinder pointed at the BG that makes them find religion - in a hurry. Lasers seem to have a similar effect.

AZ is open carry & it does draw a lot of attention & hassle - you don't need. Blue States - tend to get excited when they see a gun so CC is essential.

Hi VegasGunGirl,

Welcome to the FTF.

My DE44 is manly enough for me.

I guess I'm getting old.

How much are the 50AE rounds running these days?

Do you reload yet?

Bass pro sells them for about $32 for a box of 20 rounds. It's next to impossible to find them though. Seems like every place is always out of stock

I haven't tempted to load my own bullets. I don't have the time for it.

So, about $1.60 per round. That's less than I expected.

I've paid more for high-end Hornady .44s.

I think it's still pretty damn expensive for a single bullet. I just wish more places stocked it. It's a popular gun and more and more people are owning them. Really should be able to buy it like buying .22s. IMO.

The problem is supply and demand. Even though it may becoming a more frequently owned round.. the demand still isn't high enough. Same thing goes for smaller rounds, such as .380 you would think that the .380 being a somewhat small round (less brass, less powder) that it would be a less expensive purchase. Although common, it isn't a very popular round. Supply is high, demand is low. Ammo companies need to make their money off of it somehow.
