I second your thoughts about pistols with safeties on the trigger, and if Chas will forgive me for stealing his thread ...jbenat wrote:I'm sorta new to this forum and I just got through reading many of the posts by forum members re: accidental discharges. Very eye opening! Make great required reading for anyone obtaining a CHL or anyone who handles firearms for any reason. Maybe Charles could gather it in a book and make a few bucks? Paladin should go on the speaker cirquit. What a experience.
I don't pretend to be a gun expert by any means but I have never understood why anyone would want a gun with the safety on the trigger or a gun that requires you to pull the trigger to break it down. There seems to be a lot of very good pistols and revolvers on the market that are a lot safer.
Thanks for the great info.
Glock sent me a catalogue a few weeks ago. Kimber refused, as they don't send 'em outside of the US. Pity.
I confess to finding the Kimber Pro Carry to be a thing of great beauty. Glocks are - IMHO - pig-ugly.
But ... but ... at the same time ... I tell myself ...
Kimber: 7 + 1 rounds of subsonic .45 ACP
Glock: 15 + 1 rounds of .357 sig at +1,400 fps
I have to confess, I'm hesitating ...
