    If the G19 is you primary, then I think it would be a mistake to choose a different pistol with a different manual of arms. A smaller Glock would probably be fine.

    Good that they are seeing the light when it comes to using 9mm. However, is it just me or does the article seem idiotic?

    I find that it is easier to put handgun calibers into categories. Mouse calibers include .25acp, .380acp......etc. These calibers are optimized with fast burning pistol powders, but can sometimes...

    If it is for target shooting, pretty much anything with a brass case will get the job done. Avoid steel cased ammo as is harder in extractors and the bimetal bullets wear down the barrel faster. ...

    Seriously though, your ability to pocket carry is often limited by your body type. The dimensions of your pelvis, legs, and how much muscle or fat you have on your legs makes a big...

    If it were me, neither. I have owned and used .380s over the years, and I would probably never voluntarily use one again. There are many 9mm or .38spl options out there now days.

    Yeah, it is more comforting to avoid MIM particularly in a heavy recoiling caliber. I might go for a mid 1990s 629 on Gunbroker......just curious if I should go with an even earlier year model.

    HSTs are a fad, Doc. I will be going back to Winchester 9mm 115gr Silvertips because all this new bullet tech crap is just smoke and mirrors.

    For two-legged varmints, you will likely be best served with 9mm. If you want something for 4-legged varmints which will likely be 1-2 shot engagements, get a true magnum caliber pistol.

    10mm is kinda in between the standard service calibers(9mm, .40S&W, .45acp) and the magnum revolver calibers like .357mag, .41mag, and .44mag. I say in between in that it can kinda do the job as a...
