When I was in my twenties, I was anti-gun, even though my father was an armorer in the US Army. I believed that if you kept out of trouble & out of bad neighborhoods, you didn't need a gun.

Then one person changed my mind: Charles Manson.

I got to love the Walther PP series when my dad was in the U.S. Army & came home with a Walther PP .380. I subsequently bought a blued PPK/S, & later, a PPK (which I sold very quickly thereafter!). Somewhere around 1980, I gravitated to a stainless steel PPK/S from Interarms.

I've owned a variety of revolvers & pistols, but have settled on the stainless Walther PPK/s, a 1911 Dan Wesson CBOB, & a couple 1911 Colts, which I use in IPSC/USPSA shooting, where I am a Range Officer.

I've effectively concealed-carried both the 1911s & the Walther. However, recently I've been thinking that the Walther is not really a good defensive handgun & ammo combination.

So, I looked around for something compact in 9mm, & in July 2022 I added a Glock G43X Gen 5.

Welcome to Glockforum! A few years back this forum became overwhelmed by spam, I'm here now to keep the spammers away but it's taking time to build the member base back up. Tell your Glock friends so we can rebuild a forum not moderated by Facebook!

When I was in my teens, I was a Socialist, but that’s been a while. Now a days I am a Republican and a pretty hard corps gun owner.

Welcome to the forum. Most of the old members have jumped ship, and it’s been very slow here.

PS: Antifa prompted me to get a new riot gun.

Watching videos of riots I noticed people didn't run away from someone with an AR - they'd try to not be in front of it but that was about it. Then I saw a video where a guy showed up with a shotgun and the entire block emptied! My truck gun is a shotgun!

Rioters are a pack of half wits IMO. Anyone that will charge a guy with an AR -15, is a nit wit, (like they did with Rittenhouse.)

And if they ran from a shotgun, then they finally showed some sense.
Because it will eat them alive, and that’s why I got my 870 a few months ago.

And it’s in the closet, loaded with 00 Buck.☠
