What's Your Pistol Preference? Benelli Doesn't Make One!

Recommended Posts

H&K usp .45 is what i use to protect my house. I just picked it up and i love it. Before that i used a Sig Sauer p226 in a .40. Both are great guns but i like more stopping power and a slower bullet.

No its not at all like that, do some research and you tell me what gun is involved in more accidental self shootings than the Glock. I know Duggan you are so highly trained but statistically the Glock causes most of the accidental self shootings amongst officers. Maybe its a numbers game because of the fact that Glock comes in with the lowest quote when a police department gets ready to buy new pistols, but from what my local law enforcement has said to me and what my concealed weapons permit trainer who is a retired cop from New York City is that Glocks cause the most accidental self shootings due to it's Trigger Safety.

Prove me wrong with data, don't just trash talk. I never said I didn't like the Glock, I shoot my Bro's Glocks all the time and they are a blast. My brothers and I have never shot our selves, and I'm sure that a lot of the police officers who have shot themselves accidentally are highly trained, so what is it that caused them to have an AD?

 

No, incompetance does.

You have picked a great gun. You now have the Signess, so don't fight it. I have 2 P226. My first one is a West Germany model. M second one is the new Blackwater Tactical. It comes with 4 20rd mags, tritium troglo fiber optic front sight, and rear night sight. Beavertail, with magwell grips and short reset trigger. I use these Sigs for IPSC competition and both have never failed me. I've been competing for years and seen many failures but mostly due to bad reloads. From all of them,Sigs and Glock appear to be the most dependable. Many others make good guns, but when you go over 50,000 rounds, you start separating the good guns from the great ones. Sigs and Glocks appear to be of the latter group of the greats.

But when saying that how many times people done the same with other guns? Unless your comparing junk to a superior weapon from the get go the same things wear at almost the same ratio.

As for Springfield they are one of the only manufactures I haven't owned yet. Why you say 1) All I need is one saftey if that 2) Something about Springfield USA on the slide bothers me when "made in Croatia" is stamped on the grip. Who knows though said I would never own a S&W and thats what I have now.........

You are probably right, helll my M&P 45 doesn't even have a safety but I trust its heavy trigger pull as much as the Glock's trigger safety. A great safety is like the one on the FN 5.7 IMO.

+1...I just picked up an HK USP45 last week, (virtually unobtainium her in Massachusetts). I won't start a war about boldly stating "it's the best", but for me personally, it is...I absolutely adore this gun. Everything about the USP45 just fits me....

The Glock safety issues is skewed due to the fact that they have a very large market share. Chances of accidents go up as a result. I like the grip angle of the XD better. I like the grip safety because it helps prevent an AD during a fumble.

 

Go with what you can control and aim well. Yesterday I was out in the desert and we had a swarm of tarantula hawks swarm us. They're pretty aggressive. All black with bright red wings. Imagine a wasp on steroids. I waited for it to land on a nearby bush and blasted him with a 147gn hollow point from 7 to 10 feet. Benelli would have been better, but it worked. ;)

Hey SD, I like your XDM. I got to play with one in Portland, OR. and really liked the feel but they still don't have a CA legal version. It would be nice if they made it in .45 too but I imagine that's probably in the works. I do have a regular 5" tactical XD in .40 though.

 

Later,

Hookster

I think I know your girlfriend:

Oddly enough I don't think the bayonette or grenade launcher is too much...but the front sight seems superfluous.

 

If it was an M4 with a collapsible stock... would her name be Eileen???

HK USP 40 compact for carry fullsize 40 or 45 w tlr 3 for the nightstand. I can't believe that Im only the 3rd person to mention Hk in a Benelli forum. For reliabilty in any condtion, I recommend Hk USP just look at the torture test they put them thorugh.

 

Now I do have to say I have shot alot of 1911's and like them but unless I can spend 3K on a Les baer custom 40 high cap I wont switch from my HK.

Buy a hand gun that fits your hand the best. I ended up with a Sig P220 .45 It suits me and not a lot of kick. My 17 y/o daughter and wife also shoot it although it is a little big for their hands.

i grew up with sig pistols. i have a p229 .357 and a p220. my wife has a brand new p238 wonderful little popgun/ccw.

While they are certainly no secret, HK's seem to be often overlooked by some. Which is fine - leaves more for the rest of us. ;)

 

I had a chance while in NH over the weekend to check out an HK45. Superb weapon, but for me, the USP45 is a better fit for my big gorilla mitts. Surprisingly, my trigger is smoother, though the HK45 was brand new and barely broken in. Everyone has their preference, but the HK USP45 is in my view, the top of the food chain when it comes to 45ACP.

 

I like a nice 1911 and really like the Sig220, but LOVE the HK USP45 - just stellar.

Guess my screen name gives me away. Can't go wrong with the USP's, or Mark 23 they're built like tanks. To each his own and most handguns have they're ups and downs, but there's something about HK's that are addictive.

Any chance you want to sell your OEM PG stock, if you still have it?

I have a SA 1911. I have a preference for the heavy old school ones that pack a punch. I also have it tricked out a little bit with a match barrel, adjustable tritium sights, Ambidextrous safety, match trigger, etc. I certainly love the newer ones with the composite materials too.
