  • Just my 2 cents but I have owned a lot of guns but the older I get my vison has changed sighting a hand gun in a emergency is almost impossible that's why I carry a Tauris judge in 410. and all my home defense guns are shotguns all I need is to get close and a high powered bullet is not going out a window to kill somebody

  • No. The Cobra was a .38 Special so they upgraded it with the +P and a Stainless steel frame. and handfull of other goodies. 2018 they plan to make the Python again and that is a .357mag.

  • Not one post so far addresses the things you need to consider before purchasing a new handgun. I have been selling them for years, and on a daily basis I see someone recommending a handgun that will not fit the purpose or the purchaser.

    I had a lengthy reply typed out, but the computer ate it. Your best bet is to go to a gun store. Not a sporting goods store run by minimum wage people that should more properly be flipping burgers. Find an old fart who grew up with a gun in his hand and talk with him. Handle as many as you can. Consider size, weight, grip width, grip angle, sights, trigger type and pull, and your ability to easily manipulate the gun. If the old fart tries to sell you a gun, go somewhere else.
    I have heard it said more women are packing in bras that do not fit properly than those packing in the right bra. I would bet there are more people packing a gun that that does not fit them than those that have one that fits.

    New out of the box, I have sent a few Smiths, Kimbers and Rugers back to the factory for repair. Customer service has been excellent from these companies. I have never sent a Sig, Glock, Springfield, or high end 1911 back straight from the box.

    I have heard rumors of problems with the Sig 938, but have never met a person with first hand experience that had a problem.

    If I have not mentioned a particular brand here, that is not a snub unless it is a Taurus or Rossi. I have sent them back multiple times.

  • Re: Looking To Buy New Gun
  • I am fortunate to have Williams Gunsight near me here in mid-Michigan. They are a true gun retailer complete with indoor and outdoor ranges including archery. Their staff are all gun owners, shooters, and very helpful and knowledgeable, including the youngens and the women too. We have a few small, private gun dealers around too who know their chit. I like the S&W 357, just wanted to get some other opinions. We are not in a violent nor bad area so home invasion is not a great threat, but never say never. Also, being retired now, I no longer need to pack as when I worked in Saginaw, MI and had to drive an hour to go the GM Casting & Forming Plant every day. It is right in about the worst crime ridden area of Michigan. Really, there is a murder or three there every day. Druggies and whores abound. I was approached by many of both over the years when I was working there. Twice I really thought I was going be shot by drug dealers/punks and robbed/car jacked. Yep, Buena Vista Twp. in Saginaw - your vacation paradise -NOT! I think for the wife and home protection I may just stick with a .38 Special. Something small enough to stop an intruder at close range yet light enough for a woman with no gun handling experience to handle. I was leaning towards a Glock or Sig Sauer 9mm so I could also shoot it...we'll see what Santa brings.

  • I have been fondling one of the new Mossbergs in 20 gauge. 14" barrel and a hand grip. It is not NFA. It could work quite well for home protection. The same gun is available in 12, but I think it would be too much.

    You don't really aim the thing, just point and shoot. You ought to check one out, for the novelty of it if nothing else. Remington has been promoting one too, but I have not seen the Remington.

  • I have a friend that currently has a sig 9MM for sale. Been to the range 3X and too big for her. She plays secretary during the day. Now she is looking at a .32 S/W 5 round hammer-less revolver. I told her never pull it out of her purse, just start banging away. Then she said she was looking for home defense. I mentioned shot gun and told her how to block the front door after that remark.

  • Re: Looking To Buy New Gun
  • The S&W .357 is a very good choice. Very dependable. Very accurate. Very safe to operate. Easy to clean and maintain. Easy to find assortment of ammo. You can practice with .38 special ammo, which are cheaper loads. You can save the brass and .38 special and .357 loads are easy to reload.

    The 9mm is also a good choice as far as easy to find ammo and is relatively cheap. You will go through 2X or 3X the ammo when you practice because the clips hold 15 to 17 rounds as opposed to six. The 9mm semi auto is relatively easy to operate, but in my opinion is more dangerous to use as a carry weapon. You have to decide if you want to keep a round in the chamber, which I would never do. But if you don't then you have to operate the action and work the safety before you can fire. All a lot to think of in an emergency.

    The sig is a nice brand quality weapon, but in my opinion is somewhat heavy and has a long trigger pull which affects accuracy. Most sig shooters always shoot a bit high and to the left for that reason. I have never tried to reload 9mm rounds because I have always heard that once fired brass expands just enough to cause 10X more jambs and misfires.

    The most popular 9mm is probably a Glock 17 or 15 because they are relatively light and very dependable. The only complaint I had about the Glock was the safety pull on the trigger and that it had no other safety. So once you charge the chamber there is no way to un-cock the hammer and you have to remove the clip and eject the round if you want to be safe. I would never want to carry a Glock with one in the chamber because of the only safety on the trigger pull. To me there is nothing to stop an accidental trigger pull. The newer ones may be different, I have not kept up.
    The easy solution for me would be to not keep one in the chamber until you are ready to fire. So once you rack one into the chamber you typically empty the clip.

    A very accurate and dependable 9mm is the CZ73 or 75, I can't remember which right now. A little heavier then the glock but very dependable and accurate.

  • Re: Looking To Buy New Gun
  • I am not a 9mm fan,don't ask why, I just think they are over rated. One thing good about a 9mm is the ammo is cheap. That being said,I am a Ruger fan although I do have other brands. For sport I don't think you can beat a .357 revolver, although I don't have one. I hunt with a .35 Rem. Contender and carry a Ruger .41 mag. Blackhawk for back up.
    For carry I have a Ruger LCP 380, light weigh and very easy to conceal. I have four holsters for it, ankle, pocket, and 2 different cellphone holsters( one vertical and one horizontal). I like revolvers because they are simple and more reliable but auto's are easier to conceal ( unless it's for a woman and she carries in her purse.
    This is just my humble opinion and everyone has there own.

  • Hey Carl I also hunt with .35 Rem. Contender. I have the Marlin lever action in the .35 cal. also, although I hunt mostly with the 308 win. I too have the Ruger LCP 380 for CC personal protection and a TAURUS 380 CAL. Can't have to much protection.

  • Re: Looking To Buy New Gun
  • I've had the Contender for a long time but never used it much.Then three years ago I developed a hole in the back of my right eye. They "welded" it shut but it left a scar right where the cross hairs cross on a scope. I tried and tried but I couldn't learn to shoot left handed. So I started using the Contender, I shoot right handed and left eyed. Works for me.. I originally got the Contender in .35 cal. because at the time you had to have at least .35 cal. to hunt with a handgun in N.Y.. Now you can use any cal. as long as it's center fire, no rim fire. And yes, never to much protection. Hope I never have to use it but I will if I have to.

  • Re: Looking To Buy New Gun
  • What I carry is a Kel-tek .32 auto. It is the lightest auto made, and is made in the USA. It's not much for target shooting nor sport, but at less than 15 feet, it is very handy for self protection. I carry it in a cloth holster in my front jeans pocket and it is practically invisible.

    .357mag is a wise choice, 9mm is a glorified .38 special LOL

  • I have several hand guns, I prefer the Ruger LC 45 and LC 9 MM. 9MM has a smaller frame which I prefer when I carry. My wife is interested in the S&W model 637 revolver. 357P Mag (higher cartridge charge). I have no experience with Sig Sauer.

  • I originally tried a leather holster, OK but not great . I now use the FOBUS Industries holster # KTP-11. Hard composite, LC9 snaps in easily, with a belt clip for easy on-off use. I think I purchased it off Amazon. Made in Israel.

  • Re: Looking To Buy New Gun
  • I don't know if this relevant to your question or not. But when my wife got a hand gun for personal protection, I strongly advised her to get a revolver. A revolver is almost imposable to jam it is easily reloaded,yes I know they don't hold as many rounds as a semi but with proper training she doesn't need as many rounds.Just my 2 cents worth. God Bless, Beth and Allen.

  • I originally tried a leather holster, OK but not great . I now use the FOBUS Industries holster # KTP-11. Hard composite, LC9 snaps in easily, with a belt clip for easy on-off use. I think I purchased it off Amazon. Made in Israel.

  • I don't know if this relevant to your question or not. But when my wife got a hand gun for personal protection, I strongly advised her to get a revolver. A revolver is almost imposable to jam it is easily reloaded,yes I know they don't hold as many rounds as a semi but with proper training she doesn't need as many rounds.Just my 2 cents worth. God Bless, Beth and Allen.
