1911 doublestack- I'd trust one, and would tend to lean toward Para or STI. But I think the best option for sub-$1K (if you want a heavier, 1911 type steel frame) would be a CZ 97. Great gun. And...

Interesting.

I have an early XDs45 that's run like a top. Didn't send it back because I have no complaints or issues to speak of. I guess I figured if it ain't broke, why 'fix' a successful gun?...

I have an XDs45, a G27, and used to have a 9mm Shield. They're all really good guns. It's going to come down to personal preference.

I usually carry either an XDs45 or XDs9. I sold my Shield...

My favorite carry 45 is the Springfield XDs. But I think the G30 or G36 are solid options, as is a SA XDm45 compact (similar in size to the G30).

I haven't been too impressed with Sig's 250...

The Sig 2022 and Zastava CZ999 PSA deals are both very good pistols at truly great prices. If I hadn't bought so much crap (bought two pistols AND sent PSA $1k+ for AR stuff) over the last week or...

40sw Shield for carry? Absolutely, if you shoot it well.

40sw is a good defense caliber and the Shield is a really good gun. But 40sw can be snappy in a way that doesn't lend itself to quick...

No, because the government does not want more of your money...please consider that a completely sarcastic, smart-aleck answer. No disrespect intended.

Of course the government wants to relieve you...

Whether 5.56 or 300blk, it's best not to get any shorter than 10.5" in my experience.

The shorter the barrel, the more noise you're attempting to suppress. A suppressed 5.56 under 10" doesn't tend...

Thanks for the heads up. Maybe I'll order one.

Incidentally, the B5 is also on my short list of cool schtuff I 'might need'. Every one of my ARs wears a Magpul stock...CTR, STR, ACS. Prefer the...

Good review! It's an excellent optic for the price, and surely among the best for under $200. I've played with them a bit but don't own one. Maybe someday that will change. The Lucid HD7 is a little...

Do these have lockouts?

I like Magpuls, but dislike even the minimal play in an MOE stock...which is why most of mine wear STR or CTR. If the Minimalist has a super-tight lockup, it might be just...

I just added to my CZ collection yesterday.

CZ P-09. The big brother of the P-07, it's sort of a cross between a CZ 75 and an XDm. 16rds of 40sw, plus night sights for $500. Should be a great...

I'm not sure if all Windham rifles are 'commercial' fit, but I'd imagine most are...especially with so many going through Walmart and other big box stores.

So that's probably the issue. Just to...

Man would I ever jump in line if Springfield offered an XDm 5.25" in 10mm or even 357sig. Don't know that I actually need such a gun, but I'd like to have one just the same.

Nope. But I have quite a bit of experience with most other CZ pistols. This looks to be a full size version of the mid-sized 'P-07 Duty'.

I have zero concrete P-09 experience to fall back on, but...

I like the Magpul handguards. They're cheap, functional, easy to install, and very ergonomic for my tastes. Two of my rifles wear them...and those two rifles are probably worth $3K combined. So I...

Lighter weight ARs are my preference. And in building I'll generally lean more toward the pencil profile barrels. They're durable and more than equal to the rigors 99% of AR owners would think of...
