Walther PPQ VS. H&K VP9

The video below is well done, and states the pro's and con's of each. The problem is, those pro's and con's are so slight between the two. There isn't a clear winner, at least not for me that is. I'm...

The Libs are so entrenched in CA, there is no way to undo what's been already done. That state is so messed-up, it is truly sickening. And it isn't just with 2A rights either.

One of the things that attracted me to the gun hobby is seeing an HK USP and Sig P226. Those two were very attractive to me. It was the ugly Glock that disinterested me in semi-auto handguns. If I...

^Thanks.

Yeah, I wish the Stainless version of the SR9/40/45 were like the FNX-9/40's satin finish:

The blued finish on the 9E will have better resistance to salt water and perspiration than the nitride finish on the SR9? It's too bad that they won't just use stainless slide on all their models.

Looks like Ruger took S&W's idea by getting rid of the SR9's loaded chamber indicator and replaced it with a simple witness hole. It also seems like it takes the same mags as the SR9.

I like the SR45, but I am torn between it and the SR40. The SR40 does a great job in taming the .40S&W round, and has a mag capacity of 15+1, whereas the SR45's 10+1 capacity. Both are excellent...
