Greetings fellow ATS folks. In the next month I'm looking to purchase a new handgun for for use as my main carry weapon and would really appreciate your suggestions. In the past I've used some of the following pistols for this purpose:
Colt 1911 series 70
S&W Sigma .40
Colt MK IV 38spl
S&W 442 Airweight 38spl
S&W 9mm (forget model)
CZ 9mm (forget model)
Bersa Thunder .380
To be frank most of these were older models (with the exception of the S&W 442) and all had some pretty heavy drawbacks. So here's what I'm looking for now, larger caliber, lightweight, reliability, and easy carry. I can live with 8 shot mags, still love revolvers and really want something that will be my main all around carry weapon. Also I'm not a big fan of Glock type pistols but will consider them.
Edit to add- Price range $500 - $1K
Thanks for reading and any suggestions you may offer.edit on 179pm0101pm92014 by Bassago because: (no reason given)
I'm absolutely of two distinct minds for my own carry weapon. It's either a revolver (a 2 inch .38 in my case) or, usually a Smith & Wesson 1911PD.
You could take down a buffalo, bear, or anything with a throwing knife, or anything sufficient to deliver some Curare.
I'll check out the Beretta 92F. Thanks for the suggestion.
Isn't that what James Bond used? I like it already!
A .22 will shoot and kill plenty of kritters that are noms to eat. And they are far cheaper. Are there bears or other wildlife that pose a threat when they are hungry?
