I semi work for an online corporation and I get some checks in the mail sometime from them called 'staff rewards' It really a volunteer sort of thing but it's a nice bonus for our hard work on the site. Well today I got a nice extra 325 dollars from there just randomly.....now two things crossed my mind.....one was "WHEEEEEEEE" The other.....got to get a new gun for the family. I'm thinking a pistol....was thinking 1911 but the Kimber I was looking at for 550 turned out to be a fixer upper...it was an Original first production Custom.....worn the crap out. Now I'm thinking that I need to get the family a CZ 82 or some other type of good pistol...I really like the CZ 82 and right now I have a connection with a C and R guy so....bammo probably only 200 bucks in the pan.....but.....I'm thinking maybe some type of .45 Just to lay a few ground specs to your possible other suggestions....I do not want .40 Good caliber but I don't like it myself....I'd rather go with 9mm or .45 Now one guy I absolutely love now that I got to shoot one.....a Dan Wesson Revolver....good god....the trigger was like butter...and the hammer was like ice on salt..it burned into my flesh. But anyway....those are pretty pricy lol. Anyway what do you think? I'm going in the Navy soon I hope and I'll probably just get a pistol for the family that's cheap but reliable enough to not be trash. Something for fun and defense of the homestead...and yes I already have a shotgun so well....we need Moar guns.
