    New pistol ideas

    Looking to get a new pistol. Thinking a 40 s&w. Going to use it for packing during archery. I'd like one that has a .22 lr or .17 conversion kit for the rest of the year. Any thoughts?

    Once you go glock, you'll never go back, I used to hate them until I spent some time behind one. Needless to say I sold my high dollar gun and bought one and love it! Never looked back.

    Kimber 1911.

    There's a chance that I'm worlds worst pistol shooter in the history of ever... But I am deadly accurate with my Kimber. Plus, it looks cool, and it's really fun to shoot. You probably won't be converting to a .22 with it though.

    Too bad about the conversion for the Springfield, I have an xd in 9mm, and really like it. I don't think you could go wrong with the glock. They seem fairly similar to the xd.

    What you buy really should be dictated by what you intend on using it for. Concealed carry, target or just plinking for fun. I personally don't really care for Glocks, but they are the pistol of choice for a lot of law enforcement. I shoot a lot of Bulls Eye target and use a HiStandard & S & W. My carry gun is a KelTec. In my Cowboy Shooting I use Ruger Vaqueros.

    The gun I carry outdoors when not packing a rifle is a S&W Model 60 Pro Series 5 shot 357 revolver. It rides great on the hip and is out of the way. When I carry it where I pack my Leatherman when working I don't even notice it's there. May not be what you want, but 38's are pretty reasonable for plinking and the 357 has some great heavy loads for carry in the backcountry. It fits my use and points and shoots real well for me. I catfish in some remote areas where I've seen mountain lion, and where the druggies put meth labs and marijuana fields so I like to have it along. Only thing I've used it on other than small game was a sick raccoon, not sure if he had distemper or rabies so I shot him and burned him to be safe.
