    USPSA Limited gun under $900

    I need some help from some of you guys who do USPSA and IDPA. I am looking for a limited gun for under $900. It has to be in .40, other than that, I'm up for opinions!
    Thanks!

    USPSA Limited gun under $900??

    That maybe a Para 16-40 with a couple of mods. Get the Ejector fixed (wider) so it does not go BANG when unloading and a trigger job to get it under 2Lbs. Add a Ghost Ring rear site and a Dawson Precision front Fiber Optic site (may require milling) to the gun. Lastly get some +4 bottoms for all of your race gun mags. If you really need it get a Schumann barrel and have it fitted and inletted .1 inch and load your 200Gr Copper Plated bullets at the 10MM depth for ease of recoil with some Universal Clays. I have one of these that is more than 13 years old and it sings...

    I think the Glock 35 or 24 would meet your needs.

    Thats what I would use. it sounds to me like you are an entry-level shooter, so I would go with a Glock G35 simply because it will be some time before you develop the skill level necessary to take advantage of a more expensive platform. And besides, Dave Sevigny seems to be doing pretty well with the G34/35 platform.....

    I havenít heard any of the journalists who volunteered to be waterboarded asking to have their fingernails wrenched out with pliers, or electrodes attached to their genitals.

    if I were to go with the glock 35, would you all suggest any mods I should do. I was thinking sights, but any other would still be in my budget. I can find g35's on gunbroker for around $525, that leaves a few hundred for mods.

    Or I could just save for the para p16? hmmm....I have much thinking to do!

    Don't bother with the Para right now; as I said before, you just need to get in and start throwing lead and develop your skill level. Do this for about a year, then see where you are at. I think you will find that you can be just as competitive with the G35 as you would be with the Para, and you would spend a lot less money in doing so......

    When I went to Limited I looed at both guns--the G35 and the Para;

    What turned it for me is simple; mags. With baseplates you're looking at $80 per mag with the Para. Glock will run ya $50 if you buy right, and you can catch a CR Speed holster on sale for around $100. Most other models run $175.

    To get in under $900 you'll have to be a smart shopper, or leave some things for later (you can shoot Limited with a Fobus holster, for instance), but I'd go GLOCK, and have. Still with her several years later.

    well thanks for al the advice, it looks like I will be getting the g35 and asome mags. I'll probably just change the sights to either:

    Warren tactical back and fiber optic front
    or
    Novak sights and f/o front.

    Very good choice.Also one of the CZ .40's would have been a good choice.

    Not a problem...my friend has built two STI race guns, and is toying with the idea of a .40 cal Glock. We found this site.
