That's a big change going from Glocks to the M&P. Any reason for that? Both are boringly reliable so we know that isn't the issue .

Yep, made the switch because the M&P fits my hand much better and I'm faster running drills with it when I used a shot timer.

I like a few other tipper wear guns but every time I've shot them my mind and hands always say its just a knock off Glock...

Like I don't mind the guns in my hand don't shoot them amazing because I don't have half the range time as my Glock but it just feels like I bought a flea market special and doesn't sit well in my mind lol

So for plastics I stay with my glocks.. And the fitment thing has never been an issue with any handgun accept the 21 horrid fat.. All other hand guns just take a min to adjust to.. Like a car seats and pedals and dash are different just give it time and adapt then you'll feel like it was your car from the start

I was the same for the last five years, but recently started thinking differently after beating my times using other pistols. I have a more natural point of aim, and a better fitting grip with the Smith & Wesson.

Yea my hands are on the small side as well and I havnt had a chance the feel up and put range time with a SF21 yet.. I've also heard it helps with the size but the original 21 has left a bad taste in my mouth..

I don't conceal carry so this is all from hypothetical views but if I would I'm a fam of the Ruger LCR or LCP. That's the only CC revolver I've really put some time with besides full framed snubs not those are a tad bulky..

If your stuck on a wheel gun look into that. But if I had my choice Im a fan of semi autos like a sub compact Glocks (26/30/36).

If I could I'd try to CC a 19 that gun is a great compromise and offers all id want in a all purpose gun IMO.

But again I'm slightly limited to CC guns due to not being a CCW holder. But I'd look into the beretta storm/ruger LCR/LCP or the bodyguard you mentioned but I have little to no experience with those. So I couldn't really answer.

I'm pretty sure the Bodyguard 380 is a single-stack, semi-auto pistol.

Edit: Also to CC a G19 or something that size, you'd have to be 6'+ or fat, neither of which I'm guessing aogokrazy is if they have small hands.

Not entirely true. My buddy has a video of him CCing a full sized 1911 and he's all of 6'2" 155lbs. And also know a few guys that CC full size 21/17s. I my self wouldn't do it but depending on holster/position on body and clothing it is entirely possible...

I just said the 19 is for me almost the ideal for an ALL around pistol. IE CC/OC/HD/SD/Comp gun/Range toy. Also CC would be in a truck seat glove box or back pack. CC isnt only limited to hip holster

I guess I have a much different mindset living in FL and having less clothing to cover up with. Realistically you could CC anything if you cover up enough, but then you'd have to have an efficient method to get to the weapon.

Personally, I know a full size would never work with the way I dress. Heck, some days I'm running errands with a tank top and basketball shorts and I'm still packing two weapon systems .

The bodyguard comes in a pistol style and a revolver style.

I feel you the holster system I have and my 17 look like I have a growth going on my ribs even during winter with a XL hoodie/XXL NFL jersey (T shirt size L).. But then again thats a OC holster and I dont want a full size glock in my pants or ribs even if I could conceal.

19 I would probably try with a better holster and would probably carry 90% of the time in a backpack anyways if I had that option.

I could conceal my Glock 34 with a Surefire X300 and I'm planning on carrying the pistol I just posted on the last page the way it is. It's all in the holster. ;)

I have been looking at the AR308's pretty nasty I would get one if i had that kind of cash

I was at work and it hit me like a ton of bricks and know exactly what your looking for!!!!


You can have the worst of both platforms and get the RRA LAR-47




I love the idea but they literally took the worst features from both rifles and put them on 1 rifle.. IMO literally the worst rifle ever made right after the bullpup.

And there are a few companies actually making this RRA just happened to be the first picture on google.

I personally have never been impressed with the XD line.. And are you sure your looking at a XD/XDM? $500 difference.

I'd say to to your range or invite a busy (being in Alaska) and shoot them side to side in your back hard see which feels better.

As for times what are you planning to do with it (assuming hunt but in a 4 wheeler hiking and what size game)

7mm can take out some good sized game and my personal favs are savage and Remington..

I've heard good things about Tika but that's usually in 308 not much on the bigger calibers and havnt shot one my self..

Remington is my personal favorite but their lower end rifles are hit and miss and their stocks are horrid plan to replace as soon as you get it.. The midrange and higher rifles get more TLC and are great rifles stocks are still eh good but not perfect.. Savage is the same. I just hate their trigger feels toy ish to me other than that good rifles

I like browning Remington and Winchester. Browning is a little more pricy then the other two

Yes I want XDM, not the xd.

And for the 22. I pick the sr22. Cause its smaller. I wanted a conceal. That's a big one.. Hahah
And I will check out and research more on the 7mm. I know it's going to be the Remington or a win... I'll be doing caribou, maybe moose and other game in between.
