compact 45 auto magazine

Mine are full size but I have one Wilson Combat Stainless 7 rounder for the compact 45 auto. It is tits. Send an envelope with the propper shipping, I can figure it out, and two one dollar bills, and it's yours.





What? You need a personal invitation or something?

Well, a .45 is on my list as my next gun purchase, but it will probably be a full size Kimber. Right now my only handgun is my Browning Hi-power 9mm, I love single action auto's!

I have a few 45s. It's getting tough to find a good turntable these days, though.

Wellllllll, that would be the safest and best kind of 45 for you, Bock.

I've been kicking around picking up a compact 45 for awhile now. My neighbor carries a beautiful Kimber that shoots like a dream. My personal carry is a .380 which compared to the .45 is like a pea shooter. Everything else I own would be considered "full frame". I have my snub nose .357 but it's also a full frame and quite bulky, not like the new titanium ultra lites (sweeeeeet!!!)

How much did it cost for a CC license?
I was hoping a 380 with hot charges could stop a mountain lion. Maybe not...

With correct shot placement its possible, and it beats "make lots of noise and try to look big and intimidating" A more powerful gun just gives more room for error as any hit is more likely to incapacitate your target.

Wow, I just used like a 5 syllable word. HookedonPhonics worked 4 me!!

In PA, $25 but you have to go through a lot of checks and have the correct references before consideration.

.38 S&W K-Frame w/ Hogue Grips. If I can't incapacitate something in six shots with +P ammo, I deserve whatever I get.

Nice firearm James, I'm seriously considering one of the following 2


Taurus MODEL 605 .357 Mag.




Or S&W Small Frame (J) Model 642













Sorry for hijacking BigDaa just on a firearm kick today.

You're probably toast for a CC in Cali...it's pretty much a no go unless you're connected...

If anyone is interested in the open and concealed carry laws across the US, you can go to: http://www.packing.org

The site pretty well details what each state requires plus which states honor each others' permits (check Alaska for the ultimate gun carry state).

For the record, I open carry a Ruger 9mm (P89) and have Taurus .38 similar to the one in Dadogs picture at home for the wife (seven-shooter of all things).

It's a compact but it's pretty big and heavy to carry concealed. In Florida it's pretty easy to get a concealed license especially if you have military experience.

AZ, I have a Ruger P89 as well but I find it a little bulky for carry don't you? BTW it is one of my favorite firearms and I am a diehard Ruger fan


Edit: did you say "open carry"? Law enforcement?

Thanks for the great info site!
Apparently in Cali we protect hungry Mountain Lion's first!
I've seen FOUR BIG cats on the trails while mountain cycling.

Yeah, it would be a little bulky for anything nearing concealed. Definitely agree...nice shooter, good groupings, nice and smooth especially for the $$$.

Nope - not an officer (in another life definitely). Az allows open carry with no permit! You can just strap it on your hip and go 98% of anywhere. This can be especially entertaining with the influx of California residents!!
Plus, this is a "shall issue" state meaning that if they can't find a good reason to deny the CCR, then it shall be issued. I just haven't gone through the class yet.

That's a bad situation...unfortunately, you'd probably find yourself in a world of hurt for simply protecting yourself. This may sound a bit silly but maybe one of those hand-held air horns? Most animals get really freaked out by loud noises...

Thanks for the tip. It's very pathetic showing up to a lion fight with a preppy airhorn!
