5-23-2012::Show No.47 - What is Mr. Right?

(recorded live on 5-23-2012)
Jerome gets into a little gun gear;  AJ talks about 2 great carbines on opposite ends of the spectrum and then he and I talk about what we would want in the perfect handgun (and argue a little over revolvers vs. semi's, for good measure).  We are now taking calls and Skypes during the show.  The chatroom was all a buzz as Mark Vanderberg was busy giving away freebies for his birthday!  Join us live on the next show!


Hi Doc,
Heard you describing an ideal carry semi-auto and just wanted to let you know that there is one that meets your specs.
A compact .45ACP with a double action trigger. It comes from a quality manufacturer at a reasonable price. It is the Sig P250.
I bought 3 pistols and an exchange kit from a guy who decided that he didn't like the trigger. It is like the smoothest double action revolver trigger you ever fired. Since I am a long time revolver shooter, it doesn't bother me.
In case you don't know, there is a module inside with the trigger and hammer that can assembled into a number of different calibers and configurations.
Anyway, I have been pleased with mine and the prices are right.
