    Picked up a couple handguns..

    Finally made my way to a show this past weekend to join an acquaintance who sells thousands of gun / tactical / self defense books.. Picked up a S&W M&P 9mm compact.. I held all sorts of similar handguns, but the M&P just felt SOOOO comfortable, so I couldn't pass it up..

    I also snagged a little Phoenix Arms HP22 for plinking, and also for my wife to use while getting used to firing a handgun. I know it is far from top of the line, but for $150.00 with a 5" & 3" barrel and a range kit, figured it wasn't too big a risk.

    I also tried to find a deal on a Mossberg 500 or Rem 870, but couldn't find anything to beat a used 500 at my local dealer with normal stock and pistol grip.. So I'm snagging that today..

    Now to get my rear to the range and get used to these puppies.. I'm really excited to get some rounds through these asap. Thanks to everyone for your advice.

    Isn't it great to score a couple of victories at the g-show?? Man, I love it when a plan comes together!!!

    Please let us know how those bad-boys put it down the line when you get to the range.

    Regards,

    Holy cow... 3 guns in one week! What a country! And to think there are those who say No One needs more than one gun a month.

    Idiots! When opportunity knocks... Ya gotta answer!

    Congrats! I like the Mossberg too.

    Ah yes..."they who shall not be named"

    Also very nice findings. It would be interesting to hear how your Phoenix works out. Cheap plinking guns are always nice.
    Now, we must all fear evil men. But there is another kind of evil which we must fear most, and that is the indifference of good men.

    Thumbs up Wits-Z

    Congrats.

    Please do a little forum report on your newly acquired S&W after you shoot it.

    Lots of folks are curious about the M&P and we could do for a few more honest reports.

    Thanks for the congrats guys.. I haven't made it to the range yet, but will try to get there asap. Work has been absolutely crazy and most evenings I'm having to head to clients' sites before going home to see the kids. It's driving me crazy not getting out to try these puppies out. They have been getting a "caressing" down in the basement though..

    My little Phoenix would jam at first, but a little polishing on the feed ramp and slide rails with 800g paper and some RemOil did the trick. With CCI Stingers, it runs smoothly and weirdly enough, is more accurate with the 3" than the 5" barrel!

    I like the little guy!
