I thought it'd be a revolver. How did a DE turn into a Vulture.
It's another large carnivorous bird that can be found in deserts.... it was called the Condor (.50) in SoD1— but I think Vulture sounds more menacing. You know, since vultures eat dead and rotting things, and zeds are... yeah.

Still waiting to see when the TAC-14 ‘hardwood’ is going to make it to market. Although I have a Shockwave, I could stand to own a WitPro-replica Remington.

In other news, I finally got my Colt 1903 and FN 1910 back. They both had splotchy cold blue finishes and cracked grips when I purchased them - about $450 total investment for the pair. A friend of mine restored them to wonderful condition. Not museum-level restorations as the rollmarks did get fainter (hard to avoid when you have to deal with pitting) but given their ‘shooter’ status before this is a vast improvement.

I’ll attach some before and after photos.

I don't know much about the Glock series, but I know they are adjustable to your style, as in you can add attachments, they provide great stability with cheap ammo, great grip and not too hard to manage.

If I were to get a gun, my choice would be a Glock first.

Then again, don't take my word cause I may just provide some nonsense XD

Thinking about picking up a Glock 19 gen 4. Thoughts and opinions would be appreciated. Reviews I've seen are mostly favorable, but I'd like real human input.
Glocks are okay guns, but I'm not a huge fan of "I'll crack if you look at me wrong" polymer-frame weapons (although, to be fair, you usually have to be really mistreating the gun to do that). Personally, I still swear by my M1911A1, which has never given me any problems, but to each his own.

.45, 'cause there ain't no .46.

You can add attachments to any weapon, as long as it can accept a rail. Which these days, is most of them.

I've got a Glock 19 Gen 4. My biggest peeve with it is the stock/factory trigger. For whatever reason (has something to do with import laws), the G19 trigger has ridges on it, which has a cheese grater effect on my finger. So if you do pick up a G19, I'd swap the stock trigger out with one from the G17.

Any reason you aren't looking at Gen 5 G19? It doesn't have finger grooves molded into the grip and it also has extra milling around the muzzle end of the slide to aid in holstering.

Some competitive options to the Gen 4/5 G19:

Ruger Security 9: $385 NIB around here

Walther Creed: $390 NIB here

Steyr M series: ? Good luck finding one

CZ P10C: $425 NIB here


.45 will pack a punch, speaking of the M1911A1, they hold 7-8 shots as well as a good menacing look.
Depends on the magazine. Most mags hold 7 or 8 rounds, but you can find 10 and 18 shot single stack mags. If you pick up a double stack 1911, like a Remington or STI, you can get 14 or 15 in standard configuration, and I think they make 22 shot mags for competition guns.
