    I need a new CCW, and was wondering what you guys think.

    I can't decide if I want a 2.7 mm Kolibri, or a 500 S&W Magnum.

    Also, what ever gun I get MUST hold more than 50 rounds. Anything else will get you killed!

    Finally, can I get these options in a 1911 or a GLOCK? I'm also stuck between deciding between these too guns too. Any suggestions?

    I see we put on our fighting pants tonight. I think I am going to go find an 'ol brain bucket to put on before the shells start falling.





    Glad to see that we still have a sense of humor....I needed a good laugh

    Well, there seems to have been more caliber vs caliber, GLOCK vs ......, and low capacity vs high capacity arguments than usual. All have been beaten to death.

    You should go with the 2.7 mm Kolibri. After all the caliber doesn't matter at all, it is all about shot placement.

    Of course only buy one if you can find it in a polymer frame, you know.... to keep the weight down.

    Glad I could help :D

    Obviously the 500 S&W Magnum is the choice for you. I hear they're making one under 5 ounces, with a 55 round cylinder, with as much recoil as shooting a .22. It's a bit pricey, at $300.

    And yes, they make a 1911 variant (with the lower capacity, 45 rounds cylinder). Supposedly there's also a Glock variant with the higher capacity cylinder of 65 rounds.

    Take your pick.

    Awesome!

    BTW, should I carry concealed or openly? What are the arguments for these options?


    :p

    Openly carry one on each hip, and colon carry a third. Just in case. This is the method true gun fighters employ.

    And risk a case of 500 S&W ankle??? It's well documented, I'll find a video.

    Myself, I think you should go for the full auto revolver that is being produced by RG in the .14 Alton Jones version.

    The only other alternative would be the 4mm Luger centerfire. With a shoulder stock holster. Open carry, of course!

    Haha. The truth is with that round it's more like ankle less.

    Of course, if you drag the Howdah pistol out of the scabbard, you would just HAVE to ask THE question-

    "Howdah you do?" :p
