    Well i have a 2nd Gen Glock 23 that i've had for about 5 or 6 months now. Sold it for $450 (Not because i was wanting to get rid of it, but i could get the same model if not newer for around the same price here in KY and make a little money off of it.) I loved the .40 Glock, and it was extremely durable and never jammed. I will be keeping my eye out for another deal on another one for cheaper, but i'm also wanting something a little cheaper to shoot and something i can keep in my truck also for everyday carry.

    Anyway, i guess what i am getting at is what are some handguns you have shot? My buddy had a Walther .22 that i played with at the range, and i was surprised at the power and how well it shot.

    I cant even begin to list the various handguns that i've fired/owned

    BUT like you, my Glocks are very high on my list of favorites

    If you liked your Glock 23, but want to lower ammo costs, look into the Glock 19

    It is almost if not identical in size and operation, but uses the cheaper 9mm round

    I picked up a Glock 19 used from a buddy for my truck gun. I will always keep a 9mm in my collection because the ammo is cheap and very plentiful, as stated above. Also check out the Smith and Wesson M&P compact. You'll probably like that one too.

    get a colt 380 auto very cheap small easy carry. or glock 22 full size like the 35 but not competition and cheaper. I have a glock 35 love it cause i have size 12 hands and fits great and can shoot bottles at 50 yards consistantly enough to kill something in 20 feet easily. for ammo though id get the new keltec 22 pistol holds 30 rounds of 22 magnums.
    the Magnums velocity ranges from 1800-2200 dependin on which kind you get. I love them I have a Ruger single six 22/22magnum and the mags will blow chips up I dont doubt there power for the size and and cost.

    Foglights are for fog, not oncoming traffic!
    Not sure where the idea that a Colt .380 is cheap to buy or shoot came from....Colt (Cult?) prices are ridiculous for what you get and .380 ammo cost more than 9mm or .40SW.

    To many to list here, see my build info on my website.
    If you like the glock platform then pickup a conversion kit. I have a glock 23 and you can get either a .22lr conversion kit or a 9mm conversion kit.

    I got rid of my Taurus $" S.S. Tracker 44 Mag. and got a Taurus PT840B .40 Cal. I like the idea of 15+1 better than 5 rounds.
