I love my G35. That is my EDC. I bought mine in January and haven't had one problem with it!! Hope you purchase it and good luck.

I love my Kimber



I've traded off all my Glocks except one.

I do not like the grip angle on Glocks.

I own 2 pistols.
- Kimber Custom II
- Glock 17


If I could only get one... Now I would say Glock 17. It took longer to be as good of a shot with, but the round count and weight take the cake.

Here are the Kimber flaws:
- The coating has worn off in my hand and can see bare metal. I've probably shot less than 1,500 rounds.
- The barrel will wear down the 1911 bushing (eventually) easy part to fix
- Kimber is a girl's name and it's scrolled across an otherwise awesome slide
- My sights came off from the factory and you need a sight press to adjust. (it wasn't me)

Kimber's accuracy out of the box is awesome. And so is Glocks.

Get the Glock and change the plastic sights, 1st thing!!!



If you get a kimber, change the grips from the crappy rubber to classic Coco.


Sorry, don't have a better picture of the glock on my server. (this is my take-down grip):


+Glock is easier to clean and field strip.
+9mm is much cheaper to shoot than .45
+9mm +P hollowpoint should be just as good as a .45 ACP

Yeah glock are awesome. I pick my glock 17 over my taurus 45. But I trust glock and shoot really great with the g17 so I miss that 45. It never jamm but I needed money.

Plus human are easy to kill, with that being said a 9mm +p or +p+ is more than capable of protecting. I carry my g17 on duty and feel I can take on a badguy with a 357.sig or .45acp and win

On +p+ ammo

Read the fifth response. The long one. Makes sense to me. I've never heard of a true +p+ ammo

Good one Capto56. Now I know.

So basically, get 'a' gun and load it with some +P JHPs

My HD is first 5 rounds are JHPs
My next 5 are FMJ

If baddy isn't down by the first 5 shots, they might be behind cover and
some penetration might be in order. (Read that in an issue of G&A)

Actual Home Defense is a 12 ga with 3" magnum 000 buck.

That costs 1/2 the price of the Glock and is more fun to shoot IMHO.
