    They are getting closer with their ads it says personal security. I think that it searches for words on the page. By the way Culvers is a made to order fast food/ ice cream chain in the midwest.

    Ha ha ha Phoebeisis, it's now 6:50 Pacific my time, and I don't rate no stinkin ad beside my post either. Vincennes has a bitchin "Front Sight Firearms Training" ad beside his, and Trapstud has a GM brake pad special beside his. all others are blank.

    Who actually puts the ads beside our posts? I actually liked the Hillary ad because of 2nd amendment issues and in MHO she & the United Nations can just eat their lunch right outta my septic tank. The only reason I commented about Paris vs. Hillarys ugly mug was.... well Paris is georgeous and... well lets say Hillary is slightly politically challenged, and to me that makes her ugly.

    Seriously, If one of you or another poster put it there please put it back. I was so suprised to see a politically conservative ad right beside my post that it shocked me at first and so I edited my post and put the p.s. in there. I was afraid the moderators or webmaster might be p. liberals and bump me off the site.

    To whoever can do it: Go ahead and put it back, but at the very least try and "photoshop" a pic of John Wayne, Charlton Heston, Ted Nugent, Chuck Norris, Wayne LaPierre... anyone of the multitude of 2A supporters rather than Hillarys mug, ha ha ha

    Vincennes-
    All my gun transactions have gone the other way for years. A M-63 4" J-FRAME SS 22 NIB-sold for $350 at gun show in Kenner La.-Nice pistol-hated to sell it.Kit gun was what S&W used to call it.
    Tried to sell a M-38- alloy frame-nickel frame shrouded hammer 38 J Frame-couldn't get $350 for it-slight holster wear.
    I'm down to the Sig 229,Glock 27, M-38, Beretta m-21 22-nickel, M-19 2.5" nickel 357,Mini 14, SKS, 10/22 BLUE with the hammered bull barrel, a Win 190 22(bought new mail order in 1965 or so-$40 or so when you could still mail order guns-had to get Dad to sign since I was 14 yo), another 22 rifle-Rem 520?? or something-nice rifle.

    used to have many,many, many guns-strictly fun-reload-lost interest in hunting many many years ago, but it is none of my business that others hunt(brother hunts everything in Alabama- he is in Enterprise).
    In the wild almost all animals get eaten alive-so a bullet is probably a pretty good way to die. Not my business-but shooting straight is to be encouraged.
    There are plenty of used $500 handguns-new ones also.
    Now the 1911 style ones with all the carry stuff(smoothed, fancy safety,fancy trigger, overly tight barrel fit) they get pricey-$2000 easy.

    Ha... I was just messing with you. I bought my Springfield Gi.45 1911 used for $350. It had about 100 rounds through it and no holster wear so I got a pretty dang good deal. It was a learning purchase though so I've made enough upgrades to it by now that it's not quite the same gun that it was initially. How do you like that Sig? I've got a Glock 23 RTF2 that I recently purchased and I don't know how much I like it. It's a great pistol, don't get me wrong, I'm just not very good with it. It may be the grip angle. Anyway, I'm thinking about trading up for a Sig.

    Vincennes-
    I prefer the Sig 229 to the Glock 27.
    I shoot slightly better with the 229.

    I should like the Glock 27 more-with a 23 mag and adapter- the 27 holds 13 rounds, and it is a bit lighter.
    I just like the hand feel-I have smallish hands- of Sigs over Glocks.
    I shoot just fine with that Glock, but the trigger pull is JUST STRANGE!
    The Sig has a nice long 1st shot double action trigger pull-like a good S&W revolver-no grungy creep or strangeness.No way you can accidently pull the trigger with a 1/2" 12 lb trigger pull-I like that extra bit of safety on the 1st round.If it goes off it is because I intended it to go off, not because I nervously squeezed the trigger a bit too hard.

    The Glock has a longish pull, but it is the typical weird grungy, creepy fairly low effort-maybe 5 lbs max-Glock trigger pull. I shoot fine with it-and you would really have to work at having it go off accidently(trigger safety means it just can't go off by being snagged by something-not easily anyway).
    It is a very safe accurate gun, but I like the Sig better. I just prefer the traditional feeling trigger pull.

    I'm pretty sure Glocks actually deliver more velocity per inch of barrel than Sigs or any other pistol-something to do with how they rifle it-lower resistance in the barrel means more velocity.Glocks usually deliver the highest velocity when compared 1" per 1"

    Lot to be said for Glocks-I hope to keep this Glock(broke in debt etc) but I will sell the Glock before the Sig.
    Mainly just the trigger-I'm old-59-and the Sig has a traditional feeling trigger(nice sights also-points nice also).
