    I agree with Sinister. The 40 has a much sharper recoil then a 45. I've always described the 45's recoil as more of a push. The 40 has a very sharp and sudden muzzle flip. I fired 1000 rounds over 2 days in my last tactical handgun class using my 40. At the end of the second day it felt like somebody had stomped on my hands. 1/2 the torture from the 40, 1/2 because I was firing a Glock.
    The above post is my 2 cents....nothing more.

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.
    All the major manufacturers seem to ba making combat handguns geared toward military contracts. Strangely all offerings come in 45 acp.

    As much of a Sig fan as I am, I like the Kimber better...based on the reviews of others. Maybe I should just buy both.

    Re: Post Your Weapons

    The 229 on the left is mine. I bought it less then 2 years ago, bought a dozen mags to go with, shot about 700 rounds through it (give or take) and never fired it again. I bought the armorers manual which helped when I completely dissasembled it down to every last spring and pin. There are a lot of parts to these babies.....there was a brief moment of inner panic just before re-assembly. cool:

    I like the 229 but it's too damned heavy for concealed carry. It's solid, accurate, reliable as hell, and sexy. The trigger reset is too damned long to make it a 10/10. I like a VERY short trigger reset, and in fact I believe having a trigger that doesn't reset until it's let all the way out (like my 229) encourages trigger slapping and poor accuracy. JMHO I give it a 8/10. -1 for trigger reset and -1 for weight.

    The 220 has been in my "possession" for just as long. The guy that gave it to me said he doesn't want it back....so I dunno, maybe it's mine after all. It's trigger is just as bad but it's a great shooting 45 and very accurate.

    I'm considering a P229 in 9mm as my first concealed carry gun. Would you recommend it, or should I look more towards something like a P99C or XD Compact? Caliber of choice will be 9 mil.

    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.
    What's the trigger pull like on the model 41? Mine has absolutely the best trigger pull I have ever seen on any weapon. It's just like the proverbial breaking glass every time.

    Re: Post Your Weapons

    It is very comparable to my Mk II Rugar that I modified (of course!) VOLQUARTSENized.

    I just ordered a Weaver mount for it and am thinking about this scope:

    I have a Leopold 4X28 that I can put on it, but I am getting used to shooting something with a red dot.

    Just make sure the red dot is from your laser...

    Re: Post Your Weapons

    I have Crimson Trace stuff on the other pistols.

    I just took off the Leopold from the MKII and put an old Aimpoint 2000 on it.

    Gonna go to the range tomorrow and see if I like it better then the scope.

    No magnification though.

    Got new magazines for the High Standard and what a differance.

    Re: Post Your Weapons

    Shouldn't the weight help with the recoil and accuracy I'm looking for something smaller then the G17. Isn't the P229 all metal.

    Re: Post Your Weapons

    Why are all these modern weapons so goddam ugly? The classic firearms of years gone by were magnificent works of art with grace and form and beauty. Parker Brothers shotguns, Mannlicher rifles, and S&W revolvers were displayed in art museums. The stuff you see in sporting goods store counters today belongs in a box of plumbing tools. It used to be that weapons were pleasing creations of polished and finely blued steel combined with lovingly finished and beautifully colored walnut wood. Now it's rough cast plow metal and plastic. What the hell has the world of firearms come to. It's lost its soul.
