    Been looking at the Taurus G3, maybe? Hard to beat the price.

    Yesterday I went and got an HK VP9 2020. Optics Ready and magazine capacity is 17 up from 15. Had one about 2 or 3 years ago and regretted selling it. Now for an RMR.

    I'm still on the PDW kick.... and looking for something that could be fired inside an car, and not completely disorient like the 10.5" 5.56 I now have..

    so after they become available, and at a before panic buy price... a Ruger 9mm PC Charger with a folding stock that is attached to the 1913 rear of stock rail

    With all this time on my hands, I am thinking of building an AR 15 pistol in 300AAC

    Oh yeah! That one rocks, Les! :cool: An excellent choice that would augment any number of tupperware 9mm pistols on the market today.

    Looked at a lot of reviews on this pistol, notably: 'nutnfancy'. It was both flawless, and accurate. My BIL has-one, and claims it's a great buy! Shooting Illustrated also reviewed the handgun:

    "I was pleasantly surprised to find that the gun cycled well and did indeed run. In fact, it ran quite well. During my testing, I used a variety of ammo ranging from inexpensive steel case to Federal Premium Hydra Shok Deep, and the gun ran it all. I did find it shot a little high, but that is minutia compared to overall function. It produced consistent groups in the two-inch range and was smooth in and out of the holster. When it was all said and done, I only had one failure to feed out of almost 400 rounds. So, yes, I believe Taurus has got its arms around any reliability issues with the G3.

    The Taurus G3 is available in six different models, offering the consumer a selection in slide finish and magazine capacities. Magazine options include two 10-round mags, two 15-round mags, or one 15- and one 17-round mag. The G3 has an MSRP of $345.23 or $360.70, depending on model configuration. On the street, I have seen them in the $250 range, which makes them a great bargain and a lot of gun for the money."

    I have always been a S&W guy, but maybe a Glock with fun stuff is the next gun.

    Picked these up last Sunday from a guy on ARMSLIST. Got both for $900.00.
    Both have factory Tru-Dots on them.
    The P30sk came with 4 mags but the P30 didn't come with any. He said his dog chewed them up!
    LOL The P30 has the lite LEM trigger in it and it feels great! [​IMG]

    That’s funny. You may not need a gun for self defense if your dog is tough enough to chew up H&K mags.

    Nice score man! Huge HK fan here. Actually debating dropping a match trigger into one of my USP's right now along with a few other mods.

    I actually just traded the P30 off this morning to my neighbor for this 226 Navy. I actually bought it new 7 years ago and he talked me out of it three years ago. I always regretted selling it.
    Neighbor traded me even for the P30.
    I finally found a P30L that I'll be getting this afternoon. Lite LEM with the Gray Guns short reset kit installed. [​IMG]

    Love it. P226 Tacops is my nightstand gun (20 rd mags). Funny you posted this...although I am prior Army 11B, I would not mind having an MK25 in the collection. Solid. Do the SRT and it's about perfect.
