    Agreed, I believe the P30 (or P2000) to be the best polymer framed 9mm that isn't a Glock. And no, I'm not saying the Glock is better.

    I’m glad I’m not the only one who thinks like this lol. I don’t expect the worst to happen, but I’d rather be a step ahead and already have what I would need for any contingency should the rhetoric...

    With my 45c TDA with the lever, I ride my thumb over the safety like a 1911 or USP. I found that after 250 rounds or so, the back of the lever would abuse the knuckle of my thumb to bleed. This...

    Hrm... maybe I should just convert my USP's to LEM and get some 10 rounders for ban state travel if there truly is no sacrifice in reliability. I've just always felt a bit more trusting of a magazine...

    Just goes to show how projectiles do weird things, even slugs.

    Well, a Daniel Defense M4v9 managed to snag my money before the HK45c, so now I'm back in the HK45 market. I've just been doing some reading in old threads about them and ran across this by GJM :

    Thank you for the informative and detailed answer. Good point about the Comp's good reputation in 3-gun speaking to it's reliability.

    Never thought about the 3.5" issue from that point, but it...

    Yeah slugs are not what I'd consider for home defense unless I lived on acreage and had no one in the house in other rooms.

    As for the "shotgun" answer to my previous question, of course a shotgun...

    Did you notice any reliability difference between the Tactical and the Comp? I ask due to the difference in the receiver length.

    If one had to choose between a lever action rifle or a handy bolt action like the Ruger American in 5.56 or 7.62x39 for all uses between home defense and out to 50 yards or so, what would seem to be...

    Also kinda funny that we share the same first name. I know you don't find enough potential students for more lever classes, but I'd be willing to pay to take a class for you in whatever...

    You may have already been there, but if you go to Ponchatoulas it's about as good as the food gets on this side of I-20 (though I might be biased). I'm listening to the vid you linked and I'll find...

    Thanks, I'm going to listen/watch this right now (and tonight/tomorrow since turkey day is calling me to bed soon). I always have enjoyed listening to you. I'm from Alexandria, Louisiana and went to...

    If rifle caliber leverguns are less finicky than pistol caliber ones, what would you say is the most long term trouble-free rifle caliber levergun?

    I mean, the more I think about it, maybe a 590A1...

    As WDR says, I've seen some other brands of flat point in stores, pretty sure it was Winchester. But funnily enough when I order Lawman .45 the cheapest is sometimes the flat point 230gr.

    Thanks jlw, I was hoping you'd chime in. I've been listening to a lot of your podcasts/videos lately, part of what got me thinking about this. What are the weaknesses of the Marlin's carrier? Would...

    That’s a good point. I suppose the best choice in FMJ .45 would be the 230gr Speer Lawman with the flat point.
  18. What are the Most Durable, Reliable, Robust Lever Action Rifles?

    Currently I only own a lever action rifle in .22lr, but I'd like to get one in a centerfire caliber as a defensive weapon, particularly when staying in ban states or areas where "scary" looking...

    IIRC, and I will have to do some searching later to find this, I seem to remember DocGKR stating that the truncated nose of FMJ .40 loads (or Speer Lawman .45 flat point loads) don't cause...

    I think Clint Smith also said that if limited to ball ammo “the biggest ball wins.” To me a G30 (or G21 cut to take 10 round mags if in a mag cap ban state), or an HK45/HK45C would be my top picks if...

    8+1 would be the same capacity as an HK45c, which I find acceptable. I've always thought downloading the mag by one might help save the spring too, especially a mag spring sustaining heavy 230gr .45...

    8 round? I thought the shortest they make was a 9 round for the G30. Or do you mean the spring is so stiff you only load it to 8?

    I almost mentioned that in my post. I'd love to receive data from their testing and subsequent real-world street use (no doubt there's a lot of it). But I don't know how we could ever acquire such...

    I'd really like to find out how the Gen 5 .40's would do in institutional testing/use/issuance, but these days I doubt there are many (if any) LE entities looking to buy brand new pistols in .40. I...

    I find the Glocks in .45 Auto (G21 and G30, specifically) to be more pleasant and controllable to shoot vs the .40 caliber G22 and G23 (though I have not fired a Gen 5 .40 yet). If one wants bigger...
