Short barreled pistols are the bee's knees for OWB concealed carry. And you can drop a regular fullsize or longslide upper on that frame though I dunno how easy 75 uppers are to come by.

I took out a $5000 bank loan to buy a Beretta 682 Gold E O/U shotgun. The bank asked what loan was for, I said it was for sporting equipment, which seemed to be good enough for the bank.

cz 75 semi compact for about $325

I wanted an sp_01 but no one could find one at a distributor do 'ike a retard instead of waiting i got the stpid short barrel large frame pistol. Should have taken my gunsmiths advice and just gotten a plain glock 17.


now i just buy nothing but 1911's and ars. At least i got a cheap sp1 clone eith ace bustock for 525 before obamara.

On the flip side of this, my 75 semicompact is one of my favorite shooters. I know its dumb, and a fullsize would be better in literally every regard, but its not like its unreliable or bad. Sentimentality is definitely clouding my judgement, but i'm definitely considering sending it in to cajun gun works to get the trigger worked on.

Stoeger Coach Gun- had to send it back because it started to fire both barrels at once. I discovered this when it was loaded with slugs.

Lol I fired 00 buckshot from both barrels and it fell apart (hand guard came off). Ever since then, the hand guard comes off every time it's fired and the other two pieces come apart if you're not holding it real tight.

Still not my worst gun though, worst was definitely MPA Defender in 5.7mm. Brand new gun, would not last more than 50 rounds between critical failures (broken firing pin, busted springs, just to name a couple, also needed hammer replacement before 120 rounds). MPA customer service and warranty were top notch, but not enough to convince me to keep this awful thing.

I also have a G19 gen4 Lasermax guide rod in a plastic baggie somewhere.

GET A DILLON

I got a non +P rated S&W model 38, the humpback/nub hammer full of crotch cheese. It took a day with some 800/1000/1500 grit to get the rust out of the inside.

I regret nothing.

Thanks to a pawn shop auction I had a pair of Jennings 9mm in nickel and black for the low cost of a piece.
No this was before Devil May Cry came out.
Yes I did always dual-wield them.

After they fell apart because Jennings, I ran the frames and slides through the power hammer at school and dumped the remains in the scrap metal bin.

From that same auction I have a S&W 916 which finally broke on me a couple years ago back, if I can ever get the drat thing apart I'll probably gently caress around with building a trigger group from scratch and out of actual steel, or maybe just make a musket out of the barrel or something else really stupid.

Also reminds me that the whole "lol .223 poodle shooter" thing has really dropped off. Back in the late 90s I recall a lot of the survivalist/militia/Y2K folks heavily advocating FAL and G3 as "real rifles", and these days those are pretty drat niche compared o ARs.

But .223 is a wimpy poodle-shooter round and real rifles aren't chambered in it.

On that note, I bought a Mini-14 so I could have an intermediate-caliber version of my M1A:



But then I scoped the M1A and discovered that adding optics and cheek riser turns a slim and easy-to-handle rifle into a big awkward hog. So I got rid of it and got into FALs instead. Still have the Mini, but don't shoot it very much anymore because the AR is more fun.

I've got one of those too, received it as a wedding present. It's not just sentimentality that makes me like it either since it shoots just as well as the SP-01 I got later, so no regrets here

I've got a Canik CZ compact clone I spent almost a grand on that's been all tricked out and cerakoted and while it's great I don't carry it so I probably should have went with something fullsize because all I use it for is competitions.

It is a pretty gun though.

- Butch's detailed story about the J22 that was still shot after the barrel was split? I may have been there, and was the instigator of that stupidity.

- My first gun was a Mosin. Everybody had Mosins back then, but this was mine dammit. The stupid comes in where I actually stripped/oiled the bitch, and then tried to mount a scout optic on it. Thankfully the scout sight thingy turned out to be crap, but I lost the pin to the original sight. So I cut a nail to fit, and it held it in just fine. Probably still holding it in just fine for whoever has it now. (Sold that gun because yay I found an Finn mosin.)

- At one time, I owned a bushmaster m17S bullpup that actively tried to set lefty shooters on fire. I may be buying a new production one at some point, because I'm me.

- My first carry gun was a CZ-82. In 9x18.

- I, being of course completely sane and rational, carried a 100-year old Colt 1903 pocket hammerless in .32acp for a number of years. The only reason I stopped? I shot my shield better.

- Another thing in my arsenal of guns I carried(tm) is a mini 1911 in .380 manufactured by Llama. Still lighter-shooting than an equivalent-ish Glock 43, or that sig 1911 thing in .380. It even has itsy bitsy little "target sights" and a vent rib.

- I still drool over Star Firestars. Pity that they feel like utter crap.

- I bought one of the first run of the Ruger SP-101s in .327 fed mag. The ones they recalled and no trace of which remains on the internet. I then sold it and bought the new production run, which apparently doesn't have that issue though.

A buddy of mine has an old Llama .380. I'd be delirious with glee if he turned it into the tiniest race 1911 with a little gas pedal, flared magwell, and maybe some other goofy poo poo.

Holy poo poo, yes, this must be done. Bonus points for using one of the models with the corny looking vented rib.
