just what I needed
I bought another gun today.
I realized that after I gave my 9mm to my daughter, I didn't own another semi-automatic pistol, and I wanted one. I actually prefer revolvers for reliability, but a good semi-auto is better for firepower (lots of shots quickly) and ease of reloading.
I bought a High-Point .380 ACP. I haven't fired it yet, but I intend to tomorrow. It came with two 10-shot magazines and 50 rounds of ammo, but I may cruise by Mack's Gun Shop tomorrow, pick up some cheap ammo and see if they have the 15-round replacement mags. Now that the Clinton Assault Weapons Ban has expired, I want to take advantage of it.
I'd like a holster for that pistol, too. It would make a good carry-gun. Flat and not very heavy, even with a full mag. Nice piece.
I don't really know why I wanted the gun, but I did, so I bought it. Sometimes, it's just good to be an American.
Sometimes, it's just good .......to be wanted.aint that good???
Buy them now, before Hillary takes them away in '09. I need to pick up a few more myself.
Is that unit an American Arms EP-380? If so, the standard mags only hold 7. If it is a North American Arms 380 Guardian, it is a 6 round mag.
You might want to go and have a chat with the salesman...
KILL SHOOT DEAD......aint this great!!!!
I thought you didn't own any guns... wink wink
You need another gun about as bad as you need another asshole, have a nice day and be cute, Catfish.
There ain't a .380 auto in the world that equates to firepower. My mother carries a god damned .380 Walther, fer chrissakes.
Shoulda checked out the Para Ordinance Warthog .45 ACP. Twenty four ounces...10+1 in a 6 inch long, 4 inch high frame.
Para kicks ass.
And I bet you just look so cute with that little gun! Awww.
Ocho, why are you using a fake email address to rant here. Got no balls???
Hey a troll with balls, an interesting concept. Nice gun I guess, not into handguns, will stick with shotguns.
I prefer serious commentary, so I'll just go ahead.
Revolvers are great. I'm still trying to understand why they tend to be a tad more accurate when barrel length is not an issue.
However, I reject the idea that revolvers are more reliable.
Most misfires with autoloaders are due to operator error.
There are only two reasons for jams or misfeeds ("stovepipes"). Low power reloads; which are susceptible to novice gun lovers and reloaders, or weak grip or stamina of novice or physically weak shooters.
I have put thousands of rounds downrange in various types of handguns and understand these issues quite well. If anyone wants help in this regard I will be glad to help.
Please pardon me for not expressing my appreciation for Acidman providing such a great forum.
Everyone needs to recognize that Rob is being very generous in paying for a place to read and post.
And, by the way, Bloggers like Acidman have had to put up with a great deal of bullshit to keep posting. Most of you surfers have no idea how much crap has to be cleaned up on a regular basis in order to keep this blog up on the net.
You get to come here and read some entertaining stuff, but there are constant attacks of spammers and trolls that actually cost the Acidman money to fight against.
Show some damn respect and drop something in the tip jar.
That is all.
