My friends and I tease each other about our guns. I carry a 32 where they carry a 357 or 9mm. I deer hunt with a 22 mag. or a 222. They deer hunt with a 30-30 or 30-06. I squirrel and rabbit hunt with a 28 or 20 gauge, sometimes a 410. They use 12 gauges. They call mine pea shooters, I call theirs cannons. What do you hunt with, Or carry? Pea shooter or cannon? :roll:

I like my 45, we keep a 40 handy for intruders. We havn't been deer hunting in more years than I can remember but the 30-06 is collecting dust in the cabinet in case I get back to it. the 22 sits close to the back door in case there's a surprise coyote visit...

The wife carries a .32 H&R Magnum and mine is .45 ACP. For large varmits a 22-250 with Hornady Vmax rounds and small varmits get a .17 HMR with Hornady Vmax rounds. Pheasant and sporting clays are 12 gauge, dove, rabbit, and quail are 28 gauge, deer is the .30-06.

Ah Yes, forgot about the granade luancher. Not sure the distance, but I could put it through the window and also hit the truck. Never had to really fire it in combat.

Although I did get "bombed" keeping up the German economy by buying as much beer as I could for many years.

My wartime plans if it really got nasty was spending the war in the hay loft with the farmers daughters. :twisted: You see, I'm a lover, not a fighter... :lol:

that Springfield XD is a real nice pc. Good safety options, price is comparable and fits like a glove in my hand. But my question is why a 9mm???? fun at plinkin maybe but I dont like the ballistics and bullet options much.
I'm thinking of getting my wife the XD in a 45. She wants it in a smaller caliber but why? She shoots my .338 Rem Ultra Mag w/ no complaints(I took her gun hunting once so she took mine oops!).
She's the 2nd best marksperson in her class of 30 officers!!! in rifle, automatic, pistol & shotgun!!! makes a guy proud. Now if I can get her to guy out her elk a little faster!!

Agreed about the Springfield XD, I have one in 40 and I love it. It's accurate, priced right, and has little recoil (which makes it one of my wifes favorite too). The safety features were a huge plus. My current fav is the colt combat commander in 45. One of the best I have ever had the privilege of owning :)
