That's right. Sig Sauer P226. Greatest gun ever! Feel special. Beautiful and reliable but can still scare the living bejesus outta anyone.

I'm so sexy. That's right.

I had two boxes of 9mm Hydrshok and traded my 1911 for a 92. Best decision I ever made. (Breathing)

92Alpha said...

Sig Sauer P226.

McWizard said...

I took the quiz. I'm a Sig. They don't offer a 1911 or a Browning Hi-Power though.

ALa said...

OK, this probably isn't fair because all you boys knew what the numbers meant :)

Alpha: I got you a "Firefighters for Bush" sticker and we only have 21 days until the election! *smile*

Paul's a pee shooter.

By time I tried to get on, it told me the server was down and I couldn't take the test, but some how, I am sure I am a Glock .45. Packs a kick, punches a hole in the enemy.

Server was down

But I am certain I am a Browning Hi Power.

Can't stand no plastic pistols.

ALA:

I was a Smith & Wesson .44 Magnum!
Reliable but not practical at all! (smile)

92Alpha: Long time no hear!

ALA and I are going to Sean Hannity at the Keswick!

Ala, your gun reminds me of that scene in 'Snatch' where Bullet Tooth Tony compares his real Beretta to his potential killer's knock off beretta......

"Now, dicks have drive, and clarity of vision, but they are not clever. They smell pussy and they want a piece of the action. And, you thought you smelled some good ol' pussy. And, have brought your two little mincey faggot balls along for a good ol' time. But, you've got your parties muddled up. There's no pussy here, just a dose that'll make you wish you were born a woman. Like a prick, you are having second thoughts. You're shrinking . . . and your two little balls are shrinking with ya. And, the fact that you've got "replica" written down the side of your guns. And, the fact that I've got "Desert Eagle point 5 0" written on the side of mine, should precipitate your balls into shrinking, along with your presence. Now . . . fu** off."

this we'll defend said...

Sig Sauer P226.

But I can't hit water with a pistol if I fell out of a damn boat. I own a 9mm but prefer a shotgun for home defense.

I wasn't all that good with the 9mm before sniper training, but occasionally qualified expert with a pistol. After sniper training I sometimes failed to qualify and would have to redo, and felt relieved just to qualify. In short, my rifle skills got better (after sniper training the M16 range was child's play) but my pistol skills were gone. I don't know why. But I suck with a pistol, any pistol.

Free, did this happen to you?

Kat said...

Well..now that I was able to take the test, I find that I am not a Glock, but am really:

Smith & Wessen .44 Magnum. You are old school. Fat Sheriff Deputies fancy you. Reliable but not too practical.

The part where it says "Fat Sheriff Deputies fancy you" nearly had me rolling because my cousin worked on the Sheriff's dept for 5 years and at least 3 of his friends were constantly asking if I was available. Now, he works on the police department and his friend they call "Big John" apparently feels that I would make a very nice addition to his gun belt...LOL

But I think I resent the part about not being "practical". I am eminently practical. LOL

In Texas, you can get a concealed hand-gun license and pack heat if you want to. There are little old ladies down here who will draw down on you if you take the last piece of their favorite pie at the all you can gorge buffet.

Road rage cases are up but burglaries and other violent crime is down. If somebody cuts you off in traffic, just do as Bill Cosby used to say: just walk away clean, man, walk away clean.

ALa said...

The first time I shot a shotgun (skeet shooting) I almost dislocated my shoulder...the boys I was with thought it would be funny to see me surprised by the kick-back. I had a black, blue and purple armpit & shoulder for about three weeks.
The only handgun I have ever used was a 9mm Beretta. I was pretty damn good too --I have the target sheets in a closet somewhere...
that was all pre-kids --now guns scare the hell out of me....

Like Kat, I came up as a Smith & Wesson .44 Magnum. I have no idea why.

TWD, in my Interrogator days we had to qualify with a .45 (M1911) and I couldn't hit Mount Everest while climbing it with that thing. I know the feeling. The armorer of my Guard unit thought for sure I was missing on purpose just so I could squeeze off more rounds in practice. I had to clean a lot of pistols to be worth the extra training time.

In Basic, though, I paid CLOSE attention to what the drills said about the 8 steady hold factors and qualified Expert then, and did pretty good in all weapons since that time. It came in handy when I went to Special Ops, too, although I got roundly critiqued by the British SAS pistol instructors for the way I would hold the weapon. "You've been watching too many movies, mate!" They were a sarcastic lot.

I own a Bersa .380. Older model. I like it because I can put my hand around the grip and pull the trigger without much difficulty. I have small hands.

At 25 feet or less, my assailant would be dead on arrival. Further out, they would at least be wondering why they were bleeding so much. Realizing this is a smaller caliber pistol, hollow points were provided for regular loading (outside of target practice) by my police officer cousin.

My cousin, the afore mentioned police officer, taught me the fundamentals, since I had not used a gun in almost 17 years. He let me shoot his Glock .45 and his smaller Glock .40. I didn't care for them largely because the grips were square and bulky and I had to reach for the trigger. Pulled my aim off quite a bit. the kick nearly rocked me back on my heels since I was used to shooting the .380.

The cousin was "top gun" at the range for the last 2 years. That includes "practical" shooting for officers where they teach you to shoot from defensive positions behind your car door, from the ground, while walking and running, from the hip at close range, etc. You must also qualify with a shot gun.

I am not kidding when I tell you that he could put a smiley face on the target from 50 ft. In short order.

Ala, in regards to the children, I think we might have discussed it over at redleg's but I want to mention it here, too. Children maybe exposed to guns without your awareness. It's like sex education. Just because you don't tell them, doesn't mean they won't find out.

Your children are very young so I am not necessarily recommending that you begin today, but children should be taught to respect a gun and the damage it can do. You do not know what your neighbors or friends have in their houses and, if they learn it that way, it is too late.

I am not writing to scare you but just thinking about common sense.

My father is a retired sheriff's deputy. I can remember since the age of five, he would come home and leave his gun belt, weapon inside, hanging from the corner chair. We were taught to respect the gun and never touch it without permission (on pain of ass whipping of course). he also taught us to respect the power of the gun (speaking of old school, fat deputy sheriffs, my dad was one and he carried a .44 for most of his career) by taking us to the shooting range and letting us help clean it and such.

It is really what you teach your children about guns that is important. Not that I recommend leaving them sitting around. Whenever my nieces and nephews come over, the weapon is locked in a case with a padlock. the key is unavailable to them.

My personal belief (and I have no children admittedly; just nieces and nephews who have also learned) is that we should teach our children and not allow them to learn it on accident or out of our range of control.

Just my rightwing, fascist redhead thoughts on weapons and children for what it is worth.

ALa said...

Kat: as much as I hate the thought, I totally agree with you... I have talked to them about it many times (as we have tons of toy guns...yes, add that to the list of things I said I'd never do before I had two boys who were obsessed with GI Joe and his mini arsenal... We got up to the Poconos in the winter, so maybe we will take them shooting when they are a bit older --so they can understand the power and seriousness of 'the real thing'....

I have a 410 shotgun (the smallest there is) which is single shot and perfect for the beginner. I had it when i was 11 and its still in perfect condition. You can borrow it when you feel they are old enuf (10 or so ?).
Skeet shooting is a blast !

scarlotta62 said...

Nothin' beats a good ol' Colt .45. I don't think that was a choice, though. I was the Sig......

ALa - like you, my home is filled with toy guns, paint ball guns, pellet guns, airsoft guns, etc., etc. My 12 year old is obsessed. He got his first rifle when he turned 11, but it burned up in a house fire. He was devastated.

riceburner147 said...

Ala: btw, when you were shooting that shotgun and it was too much, there are several ways to make the experience much better. First, proper technique ie: were you holding the stock (butt plate) firmly against your shoulder. Was the gun the right size, both physically and in gauge. What was the load, this is a BIG deal and can make the difference between fun and no fun. Also, ear and eye protection are important.

Remember, Gun Control = Two firm hands on the grip

I was a Sig.

If I had to choose what I wanted to be it would be any Heckler & Koch .40 though.

Sigs are nice, but I prefer the lighter weight of a Glock or HK USP.

A friend of mine has the polymer framed Walther (made by Walther and not the S&W re-release) and although I have not fired it as of yet I will say that it has THE best feel in your hands out of every pistol I have seen.

Kevin F said...

One of my favorite sayings is from Eddie Murphy in The Distuingished Gentleman when he is with the gun guys - "Nothing like a nice warm Uzi."

Kevin F said...

Hear I am for 3 in a row but -

My favorite weapon of all time - there is nothing like rockin and rollin full auto with an M249 SAW.

60's is nice, but man who wants to hump that thing all day.
