Desert Eagles are too heavy, too bulky and most of all too much recoil...besides, neighbors will be thinking you exploded a bomb in your house!

If you want a good home defense weapon just buy yourself a SigSauer P229 .40cal. My father bought it for my first handgun, and I still have it on my night stand. It's cheap, and reliable. not to mention the .40cal ammo is more powerful than that PIECE OF SHIOT 9mm. that thing is too widely used, and way underpowered.

I wanted to get back to you and give you a status report on my SKS.
I finally made time to shoot it today along with my 1903 Springfield bolt action.
The SKS shoots fine. I made the initial mistake of having the gas port operator positioned over to the grenade launcher position which blocks the gas port so the action did not cycle fully. This necessitated my manually ejecting the first cartridge and correcting the position of the gas port operator. After this she cycled fine. No jams with the Wolf type soft point ammo. Left right alignment of the sights was fine. A couple of clicks on the rear sight and she grouped quite satisfactory for iron sights at 100 yards. I do not care for the sights on this rifle as I am used to my Garand with peep sights or the longer sight radius of my1903 Springfield, but I can learn to work with this arrangement.
Trigger leaves alot to be desired but this can be remidied by a good gunsmith. It is not up to the standard of my 1903 Springfield or M1 Garand but for the price this is a very workable rifle. I will have to do more research on what can be done about this if after market trigger groups are available.
Plans are now to clean both rifles and put them away for awhile. Lot of work to do with spring breaking. Wont have much time for the range for awhile.
I do plan to purchase a large batch of ammo for it and put it away too as posted earlier. I may consider purchasing another SKS down the road.
OH...one more thing ..the bayonet has to go..to barrel heavy for my liking.
Wanted to bring you and others on this board up to date.
Time to clean rifles and sort brass.
