    I hate the M1 Carbine!
    Invented for REMFS that can't handle a 1911, but with worse ballistics.

    I disremember where I read some noted expert saying, People think a 110 gr bullet at 1900 fps is unutterably feeble out of an m1 carbine but a 110 at 1400 fps hits like the hammer of Thor out of a .357.

    Never had any Glock until last Spring. Bought a Glock 42 and a Glock 43X. The small 42 in 380 is extremely accurate for a little gun.

    I remember when you bought those. I use to have the 43 and 42, never had any issues with them but I found something else I had to have

    I wish someone would build an m1 carbine in 10mm.

    You could always buy a Hi Point 1095 Carbine. Have not heard of one dis-satisfied buyer. We have 2 of their 995ts 9mm carbines bought several years back. They just never fail us. I'm really thinking a 1095 may be nice.

    I agree- unless you live (or hunt) in New England, the Rockies, or Alaska- you probably don’t need a belted magnum. Hell- most people don’t need anything bigger than a 7-08. I live in Maine and hunt bear and still use a 270, which while definitely a high powder cartridge is still not a magnum. Now- if I ever get drawn for a moose permit- I could definitely use my 270, but I’d want to get a 300 win mag.

    I don't need an AR, I have a milled reciever AK. Far more simple, better round, accurate enough. Never jammed, not once in 10 years.

    That's why you often see pictures of troops issued M-16s carrying a battlefield pickup AK.

    I've got large hands,and find my S&W M&P 40 Shield very comfortable to shoot with or without the magazine extensions.

    Revolvers: I really do not care for Colt double action revolvers. All this started in the day of tons of surplus guns. Nail Kegs full of New Service revolvers were not uncommon in stores. All had sprung cranes and were out of time. Also the legendary Python can be found the same way. In the case of the Python it was, in the day, expensive to fix. I'd hate to think what fixing is like today. Anything less stout than a Ruger is willowy and only pretends to be a real gun.
