    That's really not the issue, I carry full wadcutters in my .38s. A .380 FMJ will penetrate pert near clean through a dude. Expansion out of little baby guns is never going to happen, so penetration...

    The Langdon XDE has notable performance upgrades which make it superior to the stock XDE. I wouldn't recommend a stock XDE, but I would recommend the Langdon model.

    In the interest of world peace, I actually went back to the OP's post, since people were accusing me of not wanting to actually provide a solution. In this longish post, I will address literally...

    Small revolvers are (in my opinion) better for deep concealment and entangled gunfighting than small semi-autos. Since the capacities are largely the same, if I'm not going to carry a full size gun,...

    I didn't decide that it wasn't worth my time until after I had actually tried to respond in good faith. That's sort of the rule: I'm not interesting in investing my time and effort into threads where...

    I had a 42 and eventually ditched it because it didn't do anything I couldn't do better with a small revolver. The "problem" I had with the 42 is that in its performance envelope, it was basically...

    Yes. I am. While you certainly have a constituional right to carry a gun, perhaps it's not the best self-defense choice for you. It's a tremendous responsibility, being armed, and your conduct on...

    I had one for a GP100 that had that problem, and was a big part of me stopping my use of the holster. Plus the idea of a leather lined kydex holster eventually seemed weird to me. I stopped worrying...

    I actually had to pick up a gun and see, because I've never really thought about my SHO grip position. Turns out it's exactly the same SHO as it is when I'm shooting freestyle, at least with the M9s...

    The Type-F mechanism that's used in the Storm and the 90-Series pistols performs the same mechanical function. Beretta advised you to carry it on safe for liability purposes, or perhaps because you...

    I know you put me on your ignore list, however your statement is factually incorrect. Beretta does not recommend against carrying the M9 with the safety off at the professional level, and in fact...

    Depending on how involved you want to get, it can be as fast as an afternoon project. I get my match guns set so low that they'll only crack federal primers.
