    Re: Post Your Weapons

    The only thing, a Luger has going for it is that it looks neat, fits the hand, and points naturally. Beyond that it's a poorly designed POS. The originals had flat springs that broke regularly. Later models had coil springs but were notorious for jams and malfunctions generally blamed on magazines.
    The Walther P38 was the pistol that the Luger wished it had been.

    Re: Post Your Weapons

    Waiting period is up and I got my S&W model 41.

    Very neat pistol

    I was practicing with a High Standard and I got to tell ya the magazine and feed on that is crappy.

    Was doing some research and it says that one shouldn't expect the magazines to correctly feed 10 rounds.

    I can't get five to clear without a stovepipe or jam, but I got new magazines and made an adjustment tool to tweak the feed lips.

    Anyway. now I got a new one to play with.

    Lugers are way cool to have, but kinda pointless. Luger collectors are insane.

    You can find cheaper "common" lugers without specific history or that aren't the super rare versions for pretty cheap actually...I see them around a grand once in a while. I oughta buy one before they get too much more expensive...

    Old government owned guns are cool. Anything with the "Property of United States" stamped in the side I try to pick up whenever I see it.

    Sorry you had to experience a Low Standard gun...they DO really suck.

    I should have done each of those separate, just to add to my post count.
    Dang.

    Heh.. Lugers. I remember chatting with the local mechanic who was a soldier in WWII, and of course they picked up everything and used what they liked -in a lot of cases certain weapons of the enemy were superior. Anyway he said the Luger was great, very accurate, but if you got one blade of grass in it, it would't work right. The 1911 Colt, on the other hand, he said, you could fish one out of the ditch where someone had dropped it two weeks pervious, knock the crud out of it, and it'd still shoot.

    .45 ACP should be a NATO round.

    The 1911 IS an amazing pistol. Expensive as all hell for a well made basic 1911 though! I yearn for a Sig 220 and a full size Kimber...

    Re: Post Your Weapons

    The complaint with .45 Auto has always been that it is hard for anyone to shoot well without a huge amount of practice because of the recoil. Most amateurs develope a flinch quickly. I qualified with one of the highest scores ever recorded at a Marine range when I was in the Navy, much to the chagrin of the Marine instructors, but I had fired thousands of practice rounds over the years. Most students had poor scores and found the recoil punishing.

    Re: Post Your Weapons

    The .45 ACP doesn't really have a strange recoil though...its not a sharp kick so much as a hard push...I've never had an issue with it...but, then again, I fire a lot of weapons and have had a lot more experience than most people, not to mention that i'm bigger and heavier than 90 percent of the world too.

    I really really really like the .357 SIG round. Just for the record.

    My buddies who shoot 1911s bitch about the recoil on my Glock 23. It is a bit "snappier" than a 1911.

    Sig GSR


    The 230 grain round out of a .45 definately has more recoil than something like a 9mm. But it's battle proven for approx 70+ years and wasn't replaced as the main sidearm for the military because of it's recoil. Several weapons have been replaced over the years as the main issue battle weapon for various reasons. But it's interesting to note that the Special Ops forces still continue to return to them for their uses, such as the .45 and the M-14.
