Water bill went up? Random donation to the Clinton foundation (chelsie’s wedding) ? Thought I saw a zombie walking on the side of the road and purchased the first firearm available?

I LOVE the 1911. I have a .45 and and the kids have a .22 1911. It’s a great looking firearm and safer than a lot of semi autos out there.

Oh and to answer your question...the gun is for what it says...research....you fill in the blanks for what it is your researching....

Correct! The Khar group purchased the Minnesota division of magnum research around 2010 I believe to make the 1911 desert eagle.

If I didn't carry the Smith & Wesson Shield 40 cal, Kahr would be my second choice for price and how rugged Kahr handguns are. My brother In Law has a Kahr 9mm compact, and it is a tough good shooting Handgun for a $400 dollar conceal carry weapon. He claims that it has never Jammed after over a 1000 rounds fired through it. But mine and my wife's 40 shields has never Jammed, and that's with well over a 1000 rounds through them. It's embarrassing to say, but, my wife is a more accurate shot than I am, I claim her eyesight is better than mine ;)!!!

Have you shot/ handled a S&W 40 shield M2.0? That has been my edc for the last 2 years and I love it! The grip is pretty aggressive if you carry it under your shirt, but it will literally fit in the palm of your hand and in your front pocket comfortably even with the inter grated laser and is one of the main reasons I chose the desert eagle 1911U ( undercover) as it is the exact same size and the MP shield 40 M2.0 minis the beaver tail.

The only downside to the M&P shield that I’ve noticed on it is that I like to carry with the extended mag as it gives a better purchase on the entire grip but, the extended mag comes with an extension that will slide up the magazine. You have to slide the extension ring back down to the bottom of magazine or it won’t click into the mag well. You could fix it permanently by glueing the bottom of the mag to the extension I suppose. Over all, as you stated the S&W 40 shield is a fantastic weapon. I will continue to carry it but it would be hard to leave the 1911 in the safe looking all sad and stuff ??!

I've never ever had a problem with the extension grip not staying in place, plus I have an average size hand for a man that's 5'11", and only just a tad of my little finger is over the grip, but it is still really comfortable in my hand. It's a perfect conceal carry weapon mainly bc the shield frame isn't as wide as all other compacts, and ours is the Gen 1 that is a 1/2 inch shorter barrel than the shield Gen 2. I stick mine down the center of my back when I carry, and I've never had anyone ask if I was carrying, and my wife carries hers in an under the arm vertical shoulder holster, and depending on the top she wears, you can't tell that she carries either.

I just want to make it clear that we both carry for personal protection only bc older folks are targets for being robbed, plus, we don't want to be somewhere where an idiot decides they want to shooting everybody in sight, and if they do and don't kill us both at the same time, they will have a very bad day bc both of us shoot well enough to drop a man at 20-25 yards with 40 cal plus P ammo. I tell my wife all the time if it's possible to get behind some sort of cover to do so, and wait until they are about 5 yards away and shoot the first shot to kill and save as many lives as we can. We both also understand if we shoot center mass and they don't go down, they are most likely wearing a vest, then shoot for the shoulder, neck, head or even waistline/legs bc if you get them down, it raises your chances of survival!!! ;)

The MP Shield 40 M2.0 is a great conceal carry. I usually carry OWB. Even with shorts and a t shirt it is concealed well. It is a slim design and the .40 M2.0 is the exact same size as the 9 mm M2.0. It has never jammed. I agree sir! Too many innocent people of all ages die unnecessarily only because they choose not to protect themselves. I grew up shooting all firearms but my wife absolutely despised having a firearm in the house with a young kid. I had a very extended talk with her about what her choices was if she were to be attacked or she had to stop someone while trying to protect our son or a loved one. The choices are slim in that situation and you are inviting helplessness.

I urge all people of legal age to exercise their right to protect themselves and the people they care about. Don’t be naive and leave yourself vulnerable. Educate yourself about firearms, take courses and get yourself a piece of mind, because unfortunately we don’t get robbed at fistpoint anymore and this ain’t Mayberry!

Absolutely, we all want to believe those type of things won't happen to us, and it's always somebody else that it happens to, but the facts are that we will never know when something terrible is about to happen, an if we're not prepared ahead of time just in case it does, it can, and most of the time will cost us our life. Going out in today's world, you are just as likely to being harmed by an idiot, as you are of walking in the woods and walking up on a 1000 pound Grizzly bear. Both situations are going to end ugly if you're not prepared to protect yourself, and I don't understand why people can't see that, bc it is the same as the old saying goes, it is always better to be safe than sorry, and it's best to have it and not need it, than to be caught needing and not have it. Protect yourself, and carry protection, it can be life saving!!!

I had a Kahr 9mm for CC for about 3 months. The thing kept misfiring. I switched to S&W M&P compact 9mm. Very happy with the switch, but looking at a Glock G48 to add to the collection.

My wife said Let’s go buy some hand guns and get conceal permits, in May with all the crazy ness. I said ok ???? we are all over it and our security went up a few notches from my rifle.

We went 24 years without guns other than a 22 to shoot rats at the barn. I wouldn’t mess with her because she loves shooting that handy 9mm.

That’s why when you are out shooting you only have them practicing on still targets so that way when you have to, you run in a zig zag pattern to avoid being shot ??!

I dunno. Some people are collectors, some are not.

My father was a career soldier, hunter, marksman, trap shooter and firearm aficionado. I grew up learning to shoot early and enjoying shooting. Pop always had a gun cabinet, kept it locked and taught his five children how to shoot, how to take care of firearms and so forth.

I never had much interest in collecting firearms, though I have had a couple for 50+ years. One of my three brothers was more interested in our Dad's collection than the others of us were. He inherited Pop's gun cabinet and his firearms.

I taught my own kids to shoot. My son took to it like a duck to water and at 36 he remains a dedicated hunter and firearms enthusiast. My brother who inherited Pop's firearms had no sons and at the age of 60 he gave almost all of them to my son. So the guns are still in the family, my son adds to the 'collection' from time to time. I'm glad of all that.

It remains a bit of a mystery to me the way in which some people are real collectors of all sorts of things, but most are not.

I'm not a collector by no means but, I have always had a handgun, a rifle, or shotgun or two around my home for protection just in case of the unknown of what could happen. I would much rather live by the adage that, I would hate to get caught with my pants down at a bad time, or I would rather be caught with it than without it bc we never know who is looking at us with unsavory thoughts about the valuables we may or may not have, and they decide they want it, and are willing to risk taking from us. So the weapons in my home are for protection only, and the ones I have are of good quality to help assure they work if ever needed if I take good care of them, and I do.

Would I ever spend the kind of money that Touch_The_Rock79 had to pay for his Desert Eagle 1911, if I could afford that weapon without it stressing out my financial means, sure I would, but I can't. But I do think he has purchased an excellent weapon regardless of his reasons of wanting that particular weapon. It is the type of weapon that if it was known by a person of unsavory character, they might risk breaking into his home to steal it, then sell it for a third of what it's worth. If I owned it, only the people that I could trust not to try and steal it, or tell a real thief where it could be found. And that means that less than 5 people that I know would ever see it, or know that I had it....;)

It was surprisingly cheaper than you’d might expect. I paid $840 for it. While yes that is a good amount for some people, I’d like to think that spending a little extra in some cases will add a little more dependability. That’s why I’ve always been hesitant of glocks. They have a proven track record no questions ask, but if I had a choice between 2 objects For dependability and longevity with one being polymer and the other metal, I’d choose the metal every time. Hopefully my choices now can withstand the test of time so it could be passed down generations. Who knows the way things are going these days a forearm may be worth more than it’s weight in gold.
