FWIW we have several "stock" Kimbers in our rental case and the are as reliable as any other pistol. The only real thing to look out for and avoid are the models with external extractors.

The Beretta 92FS is a good, reliable pistol as well. No very "packable," but will go *bang* when you pull the trigger.
Thanks, dood. What about Aluminum frame vs steel. Recoil I know, but are alu frames reliable?

My favorite is my Browning BPS 10. It does it all from duck hunting to killing turkeys. I ve even shot pheasants with it. It is a little heavy but it swings smoothly and stays on target. When I shoot turkeys, it's like hitting them with a sledge hammer.

They're reliable. I mean, they will last tens of thousands of rounds, but they will not last as long as steel which will last for a century as evidenced.

There are some "lightweight Commander" Colts out there from the 50's still ticking along. They have the aluminum frame.

Cool. That narrows down my choice

Yep, and I've got two more 10-rounders and another holster on the way thanks to the Springfield Coupon that came with the gun.

I agree. Unless you shoot thousands of rounds a year (read competition) you will have no problems with an aluminum frame.
The older colt LWCs would sometimes crack right above the slide stop notch, but it's not a stressed area. The modern guns just leave that bit of metal to avoid the problem.

Here's a vid from last thanksgiving. My boy (21 yrs old) is trying to hit some close in pigeons with his ancient single shot 20ga with a full choke. He finally got it with my Stoeger 2000 with an IC tube.

Do any of you shoot USPSA/IDPA/SASS?

First Saturdayof the month here is SASS with my Beretta Stampedes, Stoeger coach gun, and 1892 lever. Second Saturday is USPSA with my Glock 17. Third is either SASS again at another club or IDPA. Every Sunday is plate rack matches. All outside, rain, snow, wind or sun. ICORE isn't that popular around here. 3-gun matches dont happen all that often but using a WASR against everyone elses AR's is not that even.

Are Idahoans gun nuts?

Reloading is a must.

Sorry Chewie,
SASS is cowboy action shooting. 2 single action pistols, shotgun, and a rifle. Fun stuff. Winchester 1892 lever rifle, Stoeger coach gun is a side by side 12 guage, stampedes are Colt single action army replicas.

USPSA is the US practical shooting assoc. which is fast shooting scenarios. Hard to describe. Lots of running, reloading, and double tapping targets.

IDPA is international defense pistol assoc. which is conceal carry defensive shooting scenarios. More deliberate than USPSA.

Lornce,
WASR is a Romanian made AK-47.

Beretta T3 Lite 7mm Rem Mag Stainless 24" barrel with laminated grey wood stalk and a limb saver. I guess eveybody else loves them too cause they are very hard to find anymore.

Anyone do you have a stubborn nail that you'd like to have driven from 100 yards out? Okay maybe on a good day, but if I didn't hit it I know I'd scare the shit out of it.
This is my Marlin 883 SS with a cheap ass 9X50 and modified scope mounts that allow for iron sights in close. If it wasn't illegal I'd be taken deer with this little plinker.
