View Full Version : Gun peeps... need some help

11-23-2012, 09:36 PM
So I have a springfield XD subcompact (13rnd+1 and 16rnd+1 mags) and a Ruger LCP (6+1).

I use both for duty/carry and love them both.

I also have a Ruger SR22 that i use just to mess around on the range or when friends are around that are first time shooters.

My question is this.... i want to get something more powerful just to mess around with at the range. Im not talking DE 50 cal or anything but I was thinking about a Glock 20 (10MM) or a .41. Im trying to stay AWAY from revolvers (semi auto only) and trying to stay under or around $500

Any suggestions? The 10MM are cool... i shot them a few times but the ammo is hard to get... especially full capacity ammo...... generally they only sell lite 10mm around here.

Good luck finding anything semi-auto for 500 bucks. Double that for finding the ammunition regarding said weapon.

Hard to get something more powerful in a "readily available" semi-auto hand gun than a 45acp, which you already have. I guess you could look at something like a desert eagle in a 44 mag. If you can find one, it would probably be 3-4 times your budget. What are you looking to take down that a 45acp can't handle in one shot? Grizzly bears?

Prices of everything are jacked up. Rent one at the range?

.40 semi-auto under $500 The self defense trigger is a long pull but I still enjoy shooting it.
