    No more handguns most likely. Perhaps a 22lr bolt rifle. Got two semi-auto 22's. Would kinda like a bolt one also.
    Been able to pick up a few thousand rounds of CCI MiniMags and Aguila Super Extra from Target Sports lately. Some of the CCI was a bit cheaper than Walmart even. Then it went up to $.11 per round on 1000 I got in today. But, that is a delivered price shipped from CT to Iowa. Their Prime ammo membership paid off and then some in only 2 months. I can even order a single box of ammo and it is shipped free. :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D

    Try a Walther before you buy, I think you'll be surprised.

    anybody have any experience with the kel tec PMR 30. that is the 22 magnum that holds 30 rounds.
    Is the slide hard to pull? is it reliable (does it go bang when you squeeze the trigger?)

    I have folks on another forum I know who have them.
    Ammo picky! Use highest velocity rounds you can find. Try various ammo.
    They fire every time on first round. Then some of them are hit and miss on ejecting and reloading a round.
    Opinions on slide, some say too hard to pull back. Others no problem. It appears the girls have some problems with slide pressure.

    None of these folks trust theirs enough to try and carry one. This is a gun you really do need to handle and try that slide for yourself. Too many varying opinions on that PMR-30.

    I have quite a bit of 22mag ammo and would like to perhaps get one of these. But not before I can try one some where. Too risky for me to just order online where ever in stock.

    Looks like it's going to be a Sphinx SDP Compact, a fancy Swiss CZ P-07 basically.

    For a small 9mm carry gun you are likely to actually carry I like Ruger's LC9s . Easy to conceal , gives a good firm grip , real sight's , excellent trigger ( that is the final thing that sold me ) , good price .
    There are two models LC9s and the LC9s Pro .
    LC9s has a manual safety for those that like that as a added feature , also has a magazine safety ( I'm not a fan of that feature ) .
    The LC9s Pro doesn't have the manual safety or magazine safety , with the same real sight's and trigger ( The way to go in my opinion ).
    The front sight is easy to pick up fast , But what really sold me was the trigger . One of the best if not the best factory striker trigger I have tried .
    If I sound like a Ruger salesman , I'm not but I have been a fan of Ruger Handguns for let's just say a long time .

    After this craziness settles down I’m going to switch from my XD40’s to XD9’s or even a .380. Arthritis in my hands is getting worse, looking at possibly surgery soon...:eek::eek::eek:

    Walther P99SC is a decent choice and offers DA/SA in a striker fired package. Or if you want straight up fully staged striker PPQ or PPS (Single stack).

    I bought both the Glock 42 in .380 and the 43X in 9mm. Nice smaller pistols. Better grips and thinner frames. Only Glocks I have ever or will ever buy. Try one of those two in your hand. I suspect you will like the feel. Barrels are more near center line I think you call it, than other models they have. Got got both of them with the night sites on them.

    Worse ... during which part of shooting? The trigger pull? Racking the slide? Operating the controls? The recoil?

    FWIW, I've got a H&K P30 9mm, in their "V1 Lite LEM" variation. I, too, have hand issues. Yet I find it has one of the easiest slides to rack, the large controls probably the easiest to operate of any gun I've owned, and has modest recoil for a 9mm. Fairly light trigger pull, as well, in the "Lite LEM" version. Being a mid-sized gun, it also has relatively little muzzle flip when firing, as compared to many other composite 9mm pistols. Might be worth fooling around with one in the shop, if you happen to find a nearby dealer that has one.

    It’s mainly the recoil of the 40, my trigger finger is toast see pic) and while the match trigger is nice it’s volumes better better than the XD’s.:D
    I’ve been having injections in both thumbs for years and have recently been referred to a specialist. :eek:
    Not looking forward to this, AT ALL....:mad:

    Had a Homer moment and forgot to attach the pic....:oops::oops::oops:

    Ah, so. What you need is a nice, full-sized, all-steel Government model 1911, but shooting subsonic lighter .45s out of the thing. Either that, or a "massaged" K-frame revolver .44mag, but shooting .44sp. :p

    You could always go, say, with one of the older "classics" ... a Tokarev (T-33 perhaps) in 7.62x25mm, or a CZ 83 .380 pistol. Heavier, but less of a kick than most stuff on the market today. If wanting something contemporary but with performance without the kick, perhaps a FN Five-Seven (5.7x28mm).

    I feel for you, with the hands. To this day, my old injuries still ache and get in the way of some things. No arthritis yet, in either hand, other than beginnings of it in a knuckle or two. But, it's coming, I'm sure, given how I abused those things back in the day.

    I have a Walther P99QA that I bought....maybe 14 years ago.
    It may be my favorite handgun....but I like my S & W 686 w/ a 5" barrel.
    Apparently the 5" barrel was a limited edition.....so I'm liking that a lot too. I carry compacts....a Bodyguard, Bersa Thunder, PC S&W 637....not all at once :)
    If I chose to carry a larger weapon it would be the Walther.

    I'm looking for a Glock G29. Got plenty of components. Thought seriously about a sub-compact 9mm. Actually, what I will get is a good deal on something totally unrelated. That would be like a CZ 22 rifle. Until that day it will be my excellent G23.4. The good deals will probably come around again-some day.
