Sorry, I did not make that post clear.. I was not calling the .380 or the 9mm "girly guns" What I meant was in general terms that the "physical"
size/weight.. etc. of the gun..
IE. if you are more comfortable with a small frame gun, or even a smaller caliber. (.25, etc..) you are better off using that than getting a .38
snubnose, or a .44mag, etc... just to impress...
Not picking on you, actually just trying to help, any handgun that you can use comfortably and accurately, is better than the one that just looks
I hope I clarified what I was trying to say..
Also the sig, .40 p230, was a nice "smaller" framed gun, comparable to the 380s and smaller than most 9mm, with lighter recoil for a small framed
No worries, I just had to point it out because, since I have started researching, basically one out of every 5 opinions i get is 'you should go with
a .45, 9mm and ,380 are weak and made for girls". It makes me laugh.
I actually do get what you are saying. As I said to someone else, my goal is to practice enough that I could put someone down with a .22lr if
needed....frankly, I just dont buy the idea that a .380 or a 9mm wont put someone down-i have to believe, if you know what you are doing, it really
wouldnt matter on size.
No worries, no offense taken though.
The other thing steering me away from .45 cal(i am not sure if I said this in this thread or another one, sorry if I am repeating myself) is that I
have had a recent hand surgery, and am a few months away from being able to really start to build the strength back in my hand.
Now, I know that it isnt a great idea to buy when I am not in good shooting shape, but frankly, I see a day coming soon when we wont be able to buy
them at all, and I want one before that happens. After I heal a bit, I am giong to delve into the .40's and .45's. But for now, I want a good, high
quality, smaller cal.
I do think, though, after hearing all the great input from everyone on here, I will go with the 9mm instead of the .380.
You seem to be high on Sigs. One that I have been looking at heavily are the p225/p6's, in 9mm. Any experience with them?
