edited for spelling: Those are pretty cool pistols! I've always wanted to try my hand at shooting. For now, apparently, I'll need to save up. :)Also side note, did you use an LG smartphone to snap that shot of the pistols?
How did you know? LG Optimus Elite
I downloaded the image and Googled the filename. Then I clicked on the first flickr link and looked at the EXIF data, giving me the model number of your phone. :)
You can have your trigger pull-force adjusted by a gunsmith. For weapons without safeties, it's best to keep it heavy.
There's a pistol club near my house and I've often thought of going and having a look. If you're gonna write action stories, it kind of helps to know what it feels like to fire a gun. You Bond Days are progressing nicely. You'll have to finish off by saving the world, you know. And that's not easy, speaking from experience.;-)
Save it from whom? I haven't got a line on the villain yet. Then again it kinda depends on one's politics who is seen as the bad guy.
When in doubt, go with banks or energy companies. Not very Bondian, I know.
"Luke, you're going to find that many of the truths we cling to depend greatly on our own point of view." - Obi-Wan KenobiKel-Tecs are good, relatively cheap hideout guns, but if you really want a pleasant and reliable shooting experience, I'd recommend Sig-Sauer. I think you'd find the P230 would be a good candidate for you. It even looks a bit like Bond's Walther PPK, but is far more reliable and accurate.
Thanks for the advice, Ted. I've been waiting to see what you might have to say. I know you have a lot of experience in these matters. That said, I doubt this will become much of a hobby, at the high cost of range time and ammo. I don't have any baggage associated with firearms, they are just interesting machines, like typewriters, except there's hardly any "opportunity" to use them.
yeah, it's expensive these days, which is why I pretty much stopped using firearms recreationally and switched my preference for a 'duty' weapon to a revolver (interface has far fewer things to screw up when out of practice). In the 90's though, I'd go through probably 3,000 rounds or more a year. Range time wasn't a factor either - just drive 10 miles to the desert - but now all those places I used to shoot at are golf courses and Walmarts. :D
I could say something about the viability of the targets one finds at golf courses and Wal-marts, but I'll be good instead.
Let me know if capcha comes back. Thanks for commenting.
