I recall asking this on a completely unrelated thread but I decided to quit being a gear queer and get a pistol that I wont trade.

 

Here is the criteria

 

Must Fit USPSA and IDPA Box (and legal modifications....blame IDPA for it)

 

able to be shot in multiple divisions and stuff

 

Not a Glock out of preference

 

I don't mind striker fired but I love hammer guns, especially if they are DA/SA or can be shot cocked and locked (Sorry sig and beretta)

 

I like metal frames but good ergos

 

I'd like to keep cost down if possible, I'll be trading to help fund the purchase

 

I prefer 9mm

 

Some examples....if anyone has experience with them let me know

 

CZ-75 Shadow (short dustcover)  can be used in USPSA Prod, IDPA ESP cocked and locked

Walther PPQ longslide (SSP,ESP,Production)

FNS LS (Production, SSP, ESP)

HK P30LS (Prod, SSP, ESP cocked and locked)

STI Eagle .40 (ESP, Limited)

XDM 5.25 in 9mm or .40 (SSP,ESP,Production,Limited in .40)

Ummm...  I'd probably do the XDM 5.25 in .40.  You can fairly easy shoot a minor or major load (production or limited); you can get 16 rds as is or +3 with an extension.  Trigger jobs are easy, etc...

 

Or the HK P30LS but you can't do much with capacity.  You can cut the tail on the follower for a round or 2...maybe..

Pretty sure the STI is not legal in Production.

Thanks for the recommendations guys, Taurus is too rich for my blood though :P

I'm just going to use my Glock 34 and suck it up and also my STI Trojan 9mm for IDPA.

 

As for a new blaster I'm going to save up for a custom made 2011 chambered in .40

Since that takes money it'll take some time and hopefully I can use that time to work on sucking less. Gotta work on the fundamentals!

You want hammer fired gun w/ cocked and locked capability and be made of metal?

 

there's only one gun on that list that meets those criteria. Guess which one.

Hey now I hope you're wearing your 5.11 tactical pants and fishing vest because that kind of attitude will get you killed on the streets like only reloading when you are standing still!

Here's my stupid suggestion...

 

Get a 3rd gen S&W (5906, 5903, etc) for $300.  Or get two of them for $600, because you'll need a source of parts, if anything breaks, because S&W no longer supplies parts.  Figure out how to tune it yorself, because nobody works on them.  You will be an "anti-nuthugger", with such an outfit, nobody will accuse you of being "trendy".  Practice hard and shoot it for a while.  Mags are cheap and plentiful, and they are pretty well made guns, it seems.

 

If you suck, you can blame it on the gun..."well you know, it's a 3rd gen Smith, it's all I had money for, "high bore axis", ...blah blah"

If you get really good, you will start a new "trend", and will make a name for yourself, and be the only guy that knows how to tune them.  Buy a paddy wagon full of them for $200 each, sell them for $1,200 with you name engraved on the slide and a reduced power hammer spring...profit!

Yup, if it is a PC then it will smoke many unicorns and commie guns.
