(I’d recommend ignoring the Sig P250 because it is now out of production.)

Keep in mind when selecting a handgun that widespread military and law enforcement usage is a good thing. Not only does it mean wide availability of parts, it means that thousands of other people have already done testing of the gun for you. Don’t be a beta tester on a mechanical device that could save your life.

Don’t sperg too much on “wat gun iz best” or “wat bullit iz best”.

    While this runs forty four and a half minutes, it is an excellent overview of five hundred years of pistol development. The part that I found very interesting is at about 15:47 where he attempts to shoot from a galloping horse. R. Lee Ermey is a pretty good shot and he can be counted on to hit something a stone’s throw away with both feet on terra firma. He can’t hit a five gallon jug from a galloping horse a doze feet away. His solution was to replace the horse with a motorcycle, something that could not be done int the nineteenth century. He left it there. I think that training could overcome deficiencies in deflection shooting.

    In response to the first video, I remember reading a book from the seventies written by the team leader who went after Black September. He went into how the Mossad trains. They are trained to cycle the weapon, a Beretta .22 firing shorts, when drawing. Normally, the weapon will have an empty chamber.

    Safety has been a problem for a long time. This man is reputed to have found the source to the Nile in the nineteenth century. That was on a par with going to the moon in the twentieth. He died while climbing over a fence with a loaded shotgun.

    A lesson you can learn a thousand times in a lifetime: the difference between an expert and an amateur is fundamentals.

    This is the first time I’ve asked him to do something constructive where he actually did it, and he goes and puts this together.

    I think it raises the point that none of us are immune to accidents. John Glenn slipped and fell in a bathtub after his famous flight.

    He answered the meme call a while back for Brittney Pettibone too, pretty sure.

    Oh shit, you’re right.
