Did you check out the Springfield XDs?

Better than the glock, IMO. Feels better in my hand and I enjoy the trigger better. But then again, I own a Glock and not the XD :lol

Just picked up my AR15 lower yesterday, about to order the upper soon. :D

It's just a little larger than I'm looking for.

I'll probably end up with a G26 with an extended clip.

Which lower is that and how much? I'm looking to maybe build an AR-15 at some point but the restrictions in NY are very precise.

Its expensive...go hold the gun and see if you like it. It's my ccw, but the g26 should do just the same. I carry my g27 from time to time too. What caliber are you looking for? If your interested in a .40 you could get a g27 and also get a 9mm barrel to use the g27 for both 9mm and .40 cal.

If you go with the hk, get ready to pay out the ass for magazines. It's not as bad for the p2ksk, but for the usp and other stuff...damnz.

The lower was from Spikes Tactical and on sale for $89, pretty much back to non-price gouging prices...but it was only for the month of Aug. So price is back to "normal."

I hear its near impossible to get a gun in NY?

I plan on getting a CMMG middy upper for it. How much was the DD omega rail? I was thinking about going with the YHM mainly for prices sake. Prices were hiked for so long...I've been waited for it to drop again for so long :lol $200 - $300 for a stripped lower? No tnx =X

My CMMG is a mid too. I got the rail here:
http://www.alliedarmory.com/index.ph...roducts_id=207
It's a really excellent design, solid as a rock on there. No modifications to the upper either.

You might want to check out Riflegear's CMMG based Spectre uppers.. their site seems to be down right now but give it a google later

Not at all, just very restricted. Cant have more than a 10 round mag, no threaded barrel, permanently pinned muzzle brake, no telescoping stock and if its there it must be permently pinned, pistol grip(usually this is the 1 out of 4 things that people keep on the gun. You can only have I think 1 of the 4 "bad" features. There might be another feature that I'm forgetting. Obviously no full auto, too.

$269 isn't too bad. CMMG charges $310 if you want them to install it on their upper...is it hard to do it myself? Never done it before..Also, how long was the turn around time for you to get the upper? It seems like they are still a bit flooded with orders.

Ah, gotcha. Do you have to do paperwork just to buy it? It looks like Spikes extended their half off deal for Sept too. http://www.spikestactical.com/z/inde...products_id=52

They have them in stock so they should ship out immediately. The install is pretty easy, but you may need an extra pair of hands to push down the delta ring. Otherwise simple.

I was gonna suggest a full size 1911, but it might be a bit hard to conceal carry it :lol The best thing I'd suggest you should do is go and hold a lot of diff kind of guns and choose whatever feels best in your hand. Go with any of the big namers; glock, hk, springfield armory, beretta, etc. If you wanna use it for a home defense too, I'd say go for a compact size or bigger.

Oh, the upper install is super easy. Plug and play. Assembling the lower and lower parts kit is a bit more complicated, but there are plenty of instructions/videos on the web. Just watch out for flying springs. Also for the stock you'll need a special wrench

Two black powder pistols.

Original Remington 1858 New Army .44, not the original drum in this picture. Only a little bluing left, most of it has turned brown (not rust :P )


This one is from 17xx sometime, converted from flintlock to percussion cap at a later date. Probably German, has some markings on it but I haven't been able to trace them.
Caliber .50. Sorry about the picture, but I cant find any other which I have uploaded.

I've shot a XD9 service numerous times and own an XD45. I find the grip more comfortable for my hands than a comparable Glock and prefer the trigger.

On a side note I have never had a better customer service experience than I have so far with Springfield Armory.

You should go to your local range and test fire some of the guns there.

I have an XD9 Service, it's my first gun and I have absolutely no complaints with it. It shoots very similar to a 1911 style gun.

I mean its not the "same" badassness however, 22 ammo is so fucking cheap it actually sounds really good. :D

I think thats a great deal actually. Post ban .223 carbines here in NY fetch about 1000-1200 so we're talking half the price. Plus you'll be saving a ton of money on ammo.

Congrats on your purchase. Here in Colorado there was such a rush for CCWs after the change in administrations that the process was backed up 60 days on top of the usual 90 day waiting period. I hope yours doesn't take that long.

yeah all the AR-15's go north of $1000 for just a standard one.

The S&P M15-22 is completely made of polymer but at least comes with rails.

I'm going to the shooting range for the first time tomorrow. I've never fired a gun before. There's a brief introductory course for people like me, and then we get to pick and choose types of guns to fire (pay for ammunition). I'll start off with the basic pistol I guess. I'm pretty excited.


I just realized that what I said is in stark contrast to my avatar :lol

I was talking to my friend about it and he mentioned that in Alberta, they have or used to have some problems with people going into the ranges, getting a gun, and committing suicide so they had to start screening or something. Anyone know of problems like this with gun ranges?

False. I walked into a shooting range in edmonton, having never shot before, just paid my money and shot a glock at a zombie target. 1 month ago.

This is strictly range only? I'd say you should get a 5.56/.223 >.> You could always build your own and save a little money.
