2) Could i put a G19 barrel into a G26 for the fun and goodies that come with having the barrel stick out? (suppressor and so on)

Well it would still need to be threaded and at that point it's probably easier to just buy a threaded barrel.

Anyone who tells you that Glock ergonomics are as good as or better than those of a Sig is either a liar, a lunatic or was exposed to hearty doses of thalidomide in utero. Glock ergos are okay, and can be adapted to. Sig ergos are just far, far better.

edit replace "ergos" with "triggers" and you have another valid critique.

So, I'm about to buy a new carry piece and I'm on the fence about getting night sights on it. I mean, if it's dark enough that I can't see my sights, how am I supposed to identify my target?

I've done some light testing and it seems like I can point shoot at self-defense distances. So sights in general feel like tools for practice?

Am I dumb?

I can appreciate the logic of the inability to see sights meaning difficulty identifying a target, but frankly you can pretty positively identify a dude trying to kill you in low light situations. A good indicator is "he is trying to kill you." ;)

Hurf, you're right. Got HD and carry roles jumbled. I also live by myself, so target ID is as simple as "hey it's not me". Night sights it is!

The GSGs are basically conversion kits on a semi-standard 1911 frame. Something like 88% of the parts are the same, but while the slide and barrell can be put on a regular 1911 frame, you can't put a .45 barrel and slide on the GSG frame.

22wmr costs like 5 times as much as 22lr. And I really doubt that the short barrel on the PMR-30 is effective for accelerating 22wmr to full speed.

For comparison:
50rnds of 22wmr: $10.95

I'm cross dominant as well. I shoot pistols right handed and longarms left handed. I found that when I was trying to shoot left handed pistol, I would pick the gun up with my right hand and then awkwardly hand it to my right hand. Best to just shoot it right handed and hold it to the left.

Doesn't it require you to start with the safety on rather than the hammer down? I know the safety on my CZ-75 TS (formerly the CZ-75 IPSC) won't engage unless the hammer is down.

err I meant hammer is cocked, not down.

Safety won't engage unless it's cocked. I guess the reasoning being that it's a SAO and if it's not cocked then it's definitely not firing.

Have her check out http://corneredcat.com. Off-body carry is discouraged.

Also, your concern is with covering the trigger, not the hammer. All modern revolvers are built with transfer bars that make firing when dropped on the hammer impossible.

Someone please correct me if there's another reason to cover the hammer

Alternately, I have a few of these in my (tiny) safe right now and they work fabulously. They're rubber-coated so they go inside of the barrel and keep the pistols in the middle of the safe. I have more handguns than rifles, so this has literally doubled the amount of guns I can store.

I'll make a thread about the 952 (eventually) if you think people would be interested. The impression I get is that most of TFR thinks, "You spent $1400 on a Smith and Wesson autoloader that isn't a 1911? HA!"

Haha, you're mistaken. There's a bunch of us cool cats on IRC that love 'entry-level' raceguns. Posting cool box threads instead of the norm is great.

I love the concept of the 52, but unless I handloaded .38 special, I don't think I'd get one. Trying to track down mid-range wadcutters of the exact dimension the thing wants to feed would be a fairly big pain. Supposedly they're also hard guns to shoot well, given the lower velocities of the .38 wadcutter ammo. When the bullets spend more time in the barrel, they're even more affected by flinches or screw-ups in one's form / trigger squeeze.

I didn't realize that it required such specific loads. I knew it was wadcutter, but I assumed that was the only restriction.

I had heard that it's a demanding pistol to shoot. Now that I think about it, that's probably why some people were so bad with my Ruger. I know a couple people shot it and it seemed like they were aiming with one of the tines of the front sight guards. Perhaps it was really poor followthrough.

Yours has the square barrel and super duper sights right? Mine looks just like a regular redhawk just a little more polished. I wish I could find more info on it and what was done, it was an estate sale and from the looks of it it was probably bought in the early 80s and probably barely fired.

Actually does Ruger have any info if you call them up with a serial number?

Barrel shroud, Wichita sights, and numbered cylinders. I found my serial on Ruger's web site; looks like the original gun was built in 1979.

I don't think .357SIG is a barrel swap anyway, at least not with 9mm. The case is the same as a .40S&W though, so you can swap with those on many platforms.
