I sure wish Kel Tec would make a Sub2000 in 45acp. I have the mags covered for a S&W. 10 10round and 8 14 round mags
That is a lot of mags, do you take them all to the range? I think the problem with the 45 is that you need to change everything, the 9mm to .40 is basically a different barrel and that’s about it but with a .45, they would have to develope a whole new grip and buffer and probably some of the internals…
I just received the 14 round FDE mags. I usually take 4 to 6 mags to the range. The 45 mag is slightly bigger then the 9mm. it would require a new grip area for sure.
Holy crap, you must be throwing so much money down range, I do love 45 but I don’t love what they cost…
Well … stop shooting for however long it takes you to recover about a grand in bullets downrange. Take that grand you didn’t launch downrange and get yourself a hand loading rig. Least that’s what I’d do if I couldn’t afford something I loved.
I suppose I look at @KM55’s 45ACP mag collection and think he’s got a solid start going.
@Dred A solid start to what ?
to go with my s2k:
i like it a lot… nothing fancy, but works well and doesn’t need moon clips:
on the Gulf of Mexico
Just a solid start towards having mags when/where he needs’m.
I don’t mind spending money on the 45’s. They are my go to guns. I enjoy the 9mm setup with the 5" barrelon the M&P 2.0 to go along with the S2K. I just prefer the 45’s.
@Wedge Finally got mine. UPS just dropped it off. Can’t wait for fly season
Nice. Now you get to “pattern” it on aluminum foil. LOL It’s not all that effective, but it’s fun to play with.
@Wedge group 1 at 1ft group 2 at 3ft
Yeah, it’s not that they’re innacurate, but I’ve found even with the “00 buckshot” rock salt, it has a hard time taking down anything flying above a regular housefly. And, I have the outdoor version, which is supposed to have more power.
I have been looking at these (shield ez) trying to convince my wife she “needs” it. My supplier is having a little hard time getting and keeping them in stick right now, also stinks the .380 ammo is around same price as .40. I love the shields. I have the .40 and .45
Check out slickguns.com. I seen on there today someone had it for $298 and i believe it came with a gun vault. Think it included shipping as well. All you have to pay extra is whatever your local ffl will charge for a transfer. Its a great deal on really good gun. My wife absolutely loves hers and I’ve been giving some thought to picking up a 2nd one
Heres the link for the ez shield i seen today. $298 + $14.95 s/h. Still a great price. When i bought my wife hers i paid $340 shipped plus $20 for transfer.
nice collection im jelous
I get my range anmo from Walmart. Federal 230gr fmj value box of 100 was running $25 . But there has been an increase now $32. That has slowed down the 45 shooting.
