    Bye Bye .25

    I decided that I did not want to trust my life or that of my children to the hands of a .25. So it went bye bye. Right now, for in home, we are trusting our old friend Lousiville Slugger and outside a fixed blade. AFTER BUYING IT, which was a mistake, I did the research and not even counting what was posted here, and decided I would not fare well. So with that said, I put the money into a savings which is growing so I can get the gun I have been salivating over, a Glock 32 (or 19, either or).

    May get some flaming from the .25 is better than nothing, but quite frankly, I think it would be better to invest in something better.

    Don't worry about what other people think! Besides, it's a done deal now. Right?

    Just concentrate on saving for the right gun for you.

    Good luck.

    Good move. I wouldn't want to get shot with a 25, but worse would be the slugger. Now is the exciting quest for a new defensive assistant. Let us know what you try out and narrow it down to.

    That Glock 32 has an optimum defensive round.
    The preceding post may contain sarcasm; it's just better that way. However, it is still intended with construction and with the Love of my L-rd Y'shua.

    Yep, that .357 SIG packs quite the punch. Love my 32!

    With your finances seeming to be on the tight side. I would lean towards the G19. Ammo cost differences between 9mm and .357sig, should be significant, at least it is in my part of the woods....

    My thoughts with the 32 is that I will get the .40 or the 9mm conversion for practice and use the .357 for the carry round. I am joining the GSSF so i will get a brand new one at the LEO pricing.
