Sig P238. I just bought one and it's awesome. It's like a baby 1911. It shoots well, comes with night sights and looks great too. Plus....Sig pistols are sweet...

GOOD LORD! Sig makes a pistol in .308??? THat must have some serious recoil!!!:D

awesome. everyone needs an AK. have you checked out the Saiga 12g? it's basically an AK shotgun. magazine fed, plus you can get a drum mag for it. pretty cool. but get your hands on one quick if you want one....rumor is that they are going to get banned. if you already have one, you are "grandfathered" in.

That's great! You got the whole set! You're covered either way. I never tried their knife. Let me know how you like it. I tend to stick with Benchmade folders, but I've got a couple of RAT cutlery fixed blades too.

I LOVE America.

For $40, the knife is fine. Has a good edge and a good feel. The Glock polymer makes for a slightly lighter knife than I like for a fixed blade. The scabbard has pros and con's. It is nice, but in reality requires two hands to remove the knife. Also makes a rather loud click when replacing the knife. So not a bad knife overall, but not the best. The price is right.

For a fixed blade fighting knife, the Gerber MKII is still my favorite. I love the feel of the slip resistant handle. The "killing knife" model available in the late 70s had one of the best pamphlets I've ever seen. It described the handle as being able to resist slip even when covered with blood, bodily fluids or gore. (Probably the only time I've ever seen the word "gore" used to describe anything other than a horror movie!)

I also really like the Camillus Pilot's survival knife. I have a few Vietnam dated Camillus blades, fixed and folders and they really hold up. The leather wrapped handle and hexagonal butt end of the pilots survival knife just get better with age. They are slightly smaller than the Kabar and just as lethal. Great knives.

Completed the Glock Certified Armorer's Course today. Absolutely a great course. I recommend that anyone who has the ability to take the course do so. You won't regret it.

Glocks are cool, but pretty boring looks-wise (but who cares about looks when it comes to self-defense). I got to shoot a lot of them and owned one before. Definately user friendly. Glocks are like sulcatas...everyone's got one. lol They are hardy, dependable, and friendly. haha When it comes down to it though, glocks are affordable and dependable. That being said, if I were to get another sem-auto pistol...it would be a glock.

1911s are one of my favs. Stylish and awesome trigger.

I had a saiga 12 but sold it to a close friend. Awesome gun

That being said, I downsized the gun collection and kept my mossberg 12 gauge and Ruger 357 LCR. Both guns that fit my lifestyle of the outdoors.

Anywho, you didn't strike me as a gun guy Tom when I met you at TTPG

Is that good or bad? Haha.

You didn't strike me as one either Norman. Funny. Now we'll have yet another subject to discuss this November.

Never had the pleasure to shoot one.. we use revolvers at work. .22 rifle and Tranq gun..
For home protection... give me a shotgun.. Big, easy to use, dont have to aim, and just the sound of it
will make someone stop.

Indeed...for home security, it's hard to beat a pump 12-guage! Just working that ratcheting sounding action will usually cure most people of "the stupids". My wife isn't a gun-person, but she knows how to use my pump-12, as does my daughter...hopefully, they never will need it, but it's good to know that if some ne'er-do-well gets past our dogs, they'll have another surprise a-waiting them. :cool:

A cop buddy of mine gave me this to carry in my pickup when I'm taking large amounts of money to the bank...1/8" over the legal minimum requirement here, and it's well-displayed on my gun-rack. So far, I've never had to pull the trigger.

I own that glock knife! It was recommended to me as a great field knife and I've been impressed with it.
