Anything in .40 is a good choice. I'm a recent convert, and have found it to be a great round. I wish i had converted a long time ago.

I have to admit that I like my FNS-40 a lot, but right now I shoot better with the Hi Power for some reason. It's probably me, the .40 is not so much more powerful that it induces flinching.

The .40 can still double stack which means more than 7 shots per magazine, I think that is a bonus.

Also, .40 ammo seems to be easier to find in the current moment of the ammo drought - I've not seen 9MM for weeks, bought .40 yesterday.

I suspect it's going to continue to be a popular choice in the future.

If you are in CO, I know a guy with a bunch of Beretta .40's on his sales shelf.

I have only one word to describe the past two days: winning!

- I confirmed shipment of a Windham AR ahead of schedule.

- I found .38 and 9mm at pre- apocalypse prices at a chance stop while waiting on the tailor to finish altering a uniform.

- I got a call from my favorite gun store (Ed's Gun Shop, Vass, NC) to tell me they had a Kel-Tec KSG with my name on it...BELOW MSRP!

And to think I was about to buy my wife a CRF230L. I guess she'll have to wait. :

Same here. I have been on the waiting list for almost 2 years.

With the economy and--hopefully--the failure of the ABW2 will result in a glut of arms. But then again, I've been hoping for that since 2007.

Hopefully I get the same confirmation soon I didn't buy a complete rifle, though, just a full M4 upper. I'm sitting @ about 65 days for my order.

15 rounds in 1 shotgun.

MrsDonkeys loves it! She has proclaimed it to be her snuggle buddy when I'm overseas.

news flash........went to go see if the local ammo shop had any pistol ammo and they had all calibers in stock!!!!

The crazy part is that I bought a bunch of boxes of 10mm because it was cheaper than 9mm, same prices as .40, cheaper than .45, and same price as .380

So.... What's it worth?

Remington 700 in 25-06 topped with a Bushnell Elite 3x9. Seller says he thinks it's 8 y/o and knows it's never been fired.



Bass Pro Shops is listing the glass at either $280 or $360 depending on specs.

Having a hard time pricing the gun. Too many different 700 options to be clear.

For the package, or just the rifle?
