    I carry Hydra-shoks in my .45. Haven't had to shoot a person (hopefully won't have to) but I have shot a variety of other targets with them. Them really seem to perform well. Ranger Talons are wicked as well.

    He chose well. The horse exists now in memory. I keep my puny little Glock 9mm's loaded with something different than what he has, but that doesn't matter much. They are new age designer cartridges, just like Johnny Law carries.
    What does matter now is training and mindset. He has told us that training is in the works. Kudos to him.
    If the thread is to carry on, we might advise him about tried and proven methods of keeping his firearm ready at night, in the car, and on his person. Or, we could just wait for him to ask about things that he wants to know....

    Thanks for the post Regular Joe.
    I would in fact like some advice on having it ready at night (I currently keep it in my safe on the nightstand, unloaded but with loaded mags next to it).

    I can't yet keep it in my car or on my person, but hope to be able to soon.

    It should also be noted that I have bought a Kimber Custom CDP II that I can hardly wait to pick up.

    I need to find out how to field strip it and avoid the "Idiot mark" when I put it back together.

    BINGO.....you'll love the Kimber. And now the obsessive acquisition of firearms disease takes over. Don't fight it, just enjoy. I also guarantee that you'll enjoy reloading. It's my personal "stress-buster" at the end of the day.
