Pistols

Does anyone know anything about the Magnum Research baby desert eagles? Are they good guns or should I just go with a Ruger P345?

Here's the Magnum Research 9mm polymer sub compact. Holds 12 They also Make the 45 version holds the same amt of rounds which I will buy the 45 I just couldn't find the right pic.


And here is the Ruger p345 45. holds 8+1

I was looking at the polymer only because of the weight. But I will look more into the all steel ones. I haven't shot one before but I liked the way it felt. It fit's my hands pretty good and feels like a sturdy gun.

I am also looking one for my wife. She wants a small pistol and not a revolver which is stupid to me. She won't shoot it hardly at all so a revolver would be best but you know how girls are all they care about is small and cute. But I was looking at some .380's. Mainly the kel-tec micro .380.

kel-tecs are pretty much only for that last ditch carry situation. they are VERY uncomforable to shoot. have you considered a makarov or walther?

Yeah I checked into them the Walther was on my top choices as well. I heard the kel-tech's were good from some of my friends but I know alot of yall are military and would know more about it than them dumbies. The guy at davi's firearms was trying to talk me into a kel-tech but I didn't know if he was trying to make a sale. Thanks for the info tho and I will prolly roll with the walther.

I would also stay away from the kel-tech. Not the best shooters out there.
Really she needs a 357. Enough stopping power and yet easy on the recoil.

Don't get any of those.

Buy a nice gun that feels good. I would recommend a 1911. They are slim and easy to carry. Also, I am a fan of polymer. Both of the pistols that I have bought and not inhereted are polymer frame (H&K USP .45 and Kimber Polymer Custom 1911 .45).

i had several rugers over the years and i loved them. two 9mm's and one .45 cal. i think for the money you can't go wrong. although m .45 didn't like cheap ammo.( bought for range and it kept jamming up. wolf brand i think)

check into the lady smith and wesson for the wifey.

i'm still trying to devise a way to mount a mossberg 500 pump on the bike.

also taraus makes a pretty reliable .380 for the price.... its the millenium pro 138... got one as my backup concealed... its not the best shooter in the world... but for the cash, it's actually a pretty good gun... its a lil on the heavy side, but not too bad

I am looking for around $500 new so some of the recommended are out of my price range. I heard tale the taurus guns are pretty good guns but thats about it. But I will stay away from the kel-tec's.



Good luck on the Mossberg 500!!!

I'm not a fan of kel-tec. Had one a few years ago I bought for CCW, but had sooo many feeding problems with all but one or two types of ammo; sent it back to KT a couple of times for adjustment; it would work ok for a couple of mags worth and then start misfeeds all over again. Would only shoot hardball, and then only for a bit. JHP and TC were jams constantly. Got rid of it and have carried a Firestar P9 ever since.

As far as self-defense guns for non-enthusiasts...JMHO but...double action wheelguns only....simple and easy to shoot under stress and that is all you have to know. A medium frame SW in Ti or Sd is perfect for the casual shooter...no jams, misfeeds or safeties; just point, pull the trigger and BANG. 38's for practice, 357's for the real thing.

Tried to teach my wife on a Glock (the simplest of DA autos) she got so confused she never shot it; loves her 4" barreled Python and will shoot it (quite well) all day.

Unless someone is going to shoot a lot, I recommend they stick with wheelguns.

the tauras should only be around 400... i got mine for 250 on a discount, just cuz i use it for work, but if i can rememer right, the usual price was right around 400... and its a good concealed carry/self defense piece... if she wants to us it as rec shooter, i wouldnt recomend it, but just for a self defense piece its a good pistol
