Re: Alternate Viewpoint on HB 1893

kd5zex and seamus, two great and very well reasoned posts. I agree that the reason ANYONE should carry a concealed handgun is to protect themselves, their family, and their property. We - as responsible CHL holders - ARE NOT police officers. And insinuating that we think we are or should be just giv...

Re: Walther PPS or Glock subcompact?

Ryan- I was told that the problems were associated with the Walther brand. The "newer" models made by Smith? You will have to excuse my lack of knowledge.....I am only able to pass on what was told to me. My Dad carries one of the older models and has few problems with it. Please let us know how it...

Re: Walther PPS or Glock subcompact?

For a reliable gun that size, check out a Smith 3919 single stack 9mm semi auto, 3.5 inch harrel, decoker, the NYPD issue sidearm to detectives for years. PPS Walthers seem to have reliability issues. Glocks have AD issues. As far as I can tell, the 3913 has no issues other that it is a little heav...

Re: Walther PPS or Glock subcompact?

I suggest you consider a Kahr. :tiphat: Thanks AEA. But I've "been there, done that" and will not do so again. I don't intend to demean a brand of firearms that many people believe in and use daily, but my experience with Kahr (a PM40) was horrible and I doubt I'll ever own one of their products ag...

Re: Walther PPS or Glock subcompact?

I had a dear friend tell me once that he hated to see the new Walthers come to the line for qualification in his CHL course. He knew immediately that he would be loaning someone a Glock 19 so they could complete the 50 round course. I have no experience with Walthers.....but I trust what this fello...

Walther PPS or Glock subcompact?

OK, so this is my first big question post. Would really appreciate any and all help for a newbie to this forum (but not to shooting or CHL). For my next pistol purchase, I am trying to decide between a Walther PPS or a Glock subcompact. I am leaning toward either the PPS (likely 9mm but maybe .40) o...

Re: Introduce yourself

Hello friends. Been lurking here and other CHL/gun boards for a while, but never signed up for one until now. I guess the Obama-inspired re-discovery of my interest in and importance of gun-related matters has spilled over into finally joining a discussion board (along with some new gun purchases). ...
