    One or two?

    I have the good fortune this week to be in this situation and I want some input. I have a chance to buy a VERY nice custom fusion commander 1911 stainless in .40 cal (my fav) for about 1k. Or I could use the same money to buy a Para P14-40 and a shotgun. I already own a Full size Para and like it allot.

    In these troubled times what do you think is the wise move? One or two? JD, Husker, Sixto?

    Three. And ammo. Lots of ammo. And a reloader.

    Seriously, if one is truly worried about troubled times, I would not go without a shotgun. And I would think more about having duplicates and spare parts than I would about variety. And ammo. Lots of ammo.

    Really it comes down to what you want. For every person who says get two guns, there will be one who says "go for the custom 1911."

    It's really "What do YOU want".

    Sorry I couldn't be more helpful.


    On the other hand... If you don't already own a shotgun... A shotgun is always good to have in your arsenal.

    I already have two shotguns. A mossy 500 and a 930. I would like to get a dedicated semi auto HD shotgun with higher capacity, but it's not a must.

    If I had a $1000 to spend on a 1911 I would get a Colt 70 series.

    Get the Fusion. I'm not a fan of Para's at all.

    Please keep these kind of posts to yourself. I don't want a Glock or a phaser gun. I would like to discuss the above mentioned weapons. Thank you.

    I think this is the gun you really want. Plus you already have two shotguns.

    Personally I'd go with the Fusion. It's a much nicer gun then the Para. Also, since you have two shotguns, any reason why you can't convert one of those into a dedicated HD gun?

    Why limit yourself,you can buy a HiPoint in every calibre and configuration and a buncha ammo,were talking bling bling.Seriously tho the fusion would be a great gun and maybe buy a short barrel and mag extension for one of your shottys,I got a mossberg 9200 12 gauge with 4+1 and I do not feel undergunned,plus a 5 round side saddle with slugs and more 00 buck.

    The Fusion...absolutely, without a doubt.
    There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.
