    I’m thinking a Springfield XDs.

    That’s the best rationale I’ve heard yet for why Joe Biden is VP.
    “He actually picked Joe Biden for Vice President, just to prove that he doesn’t need one.”

    LC Gladiator growls and barks:

    Vice President Joe Biden may have stuck his foot in his mouth again on Friday, using an awkward off-the-cuff phrase to compliment high school cheerleaders during a campaign stop.

    According to a pool report from Biden’s stop at Newport High School in Newport, N.H., the vice president arrived to talk to “about 100 students in their sports uniforms waiting for him in a semi-circle.”

    “He cradled a football under his arm as he spoke,” the pool report, written by The New York Times’ Trip Gabriel, reads. “He began by asking which teams were represented — football, soccer, lacrosse and cross-country. Any others? He asked. ‘Cheerleaders,’ a group of girls shouted.”

    “Guess what, the cheerleaders in college are the best athletes in college,” Biden said. “You think, I’m joking, they’re almost all gymnasts, the stuff they do on hard wood, it blows my mind.”

    I love my Springfield XD. Very very reliable for a semi auto. I had two, purchased at the same time. Put about 1000 rounds through the “test” one without any maintenance before I sustained a failure to feed and I think that was the ammo. Get one, have the ramp polished and go Kill a range for me.

    LC TerribleTroy @ #:

    Already have an XD45, it’s been my primary carry for several years. I’m really wanting one of the new sub-compact XDs models. Just gotta catch one on the shelf long enough to grab it.

    sleeper growls and barks:

    Ok, since someone else brought up firearms, can anyone discuss the relative merits of 185gr and 230gr .45 ACP +P ammo? Specifically, Remington Golden Saber, but others too, if it’s relevant.

    LC Gladiator growls and barks:

    Senator ROADBLOCK Reid the impediment of the Senate. He has blocked the Senate from considering any House passed budget for more than 3 years.
    Barak H Obama the coward of the country
    Nancy Wino Pelosi who only talks to Republican ghosts, because she scares the democratic ones.
    Valerie “Slumlord” Jarrett with partner Tony “the Felon” Resko and Rahm “Deadfish”
    Emmanuel to round out the Chicago way.

    at no time in the history of our nation have we had a bigger coward and liar in the office of president than barack obama. from the beginning of his original campaign for the presidency to this day, he is lied knowingly to the american people about anything and everything in order to be either elected or reelected.

    to all who wish him back in the presidency, i tell you all, if he is reelected kiss this nation and the economic/personal freedoms all have enjoyed, good bye.

    LC Gladiator growls and barks:

    It will be far easier to limit
    and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary
    common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a
    man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than
    Mr.Obama, who is a mere symptom of
    what ails America.

    Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy
    of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama,
    who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of
    fools such as those who made him their president.”

    sleeper @ #:
    What firearm are you planning to use? I don’t know if there would be a huge impact from a end user performance consideration outside of how the gun “worked.” What’s the muzzle velocity of the two rounds?

    sleeper growls and barks:

    Para Ordnance 1445, a 5″ barrel. Nightstand gun. The 185 grain is 1140 fps, energy is 534 ft lb. On closer investigation, the 230 grain is standard pressure, 875 fps and 391 ft lb.

    So I don’t know if the energy and speed of the +P offers enough benefit in a close range encounter to offset the extra punishment on the gun and shooter. There was an article in Guns Magazine or American Rifleman (can’t remember which) touting the 185 grain +P. But they could have been picking nits, and 230 grain mil-surp ball ammo could be just fine, too.

    LC TerribleTroy @ #12:

    Love the hell outta my XD .40 especially since I won it in a gun raffle. :em01:

    If I do eventually decide to go for my concealed carry license I’d probably ” rel=”nofollow”>strap this mouse leg to my ankle underneath my pant leg.

    A .22 WMR will do real damage and it would be far less scary looking to a jury than say an XD .45 should I ever had need to pull a crank on a goblin and end up in court over it.

    Well hi there, Peanut, so great hearing from you again!

    No, the boys don’t watch too much TV these days. When they’re not doing their homework, they spend most of the time on the computer playing Minecraft which I’m not even entirely sure what is, except that it makes a lot of noise and involves digging a lot of holes in the ground. Monster High I hadn’t heard of, but I Googled it. Looks like a lot of fun!

    So you like The Princess Bride? Me too. One of my favorite movies and yes, it is true that she’s named Buttercup, but that’s not how our Buttercup got her name, honest. Funny coincidence, though 🙂

    Her and the boys are great, thanks. They say hi too (except for Buttercup, she barks) and would love to see y’all again. Then they’d probably force you to play Minecraft for hours 😉

    Hugs from all of us, we miss ya!

    P.S.: Yes, Obama sucks. Big time!!!

    @ Sleeper

    I have to admit in regards to a knowledge base on ballistics I would consider mine to be shallow.. I may be wrong, but it was my understanding that the genesis of the whole +P began with 9mm to specifically address the cycle of the full size Uzi. Had to do with getting the heavy bolt to cycle. Considering that the 45 derives its “punch” from being so “fat” and relatively “slow”, I’m just not sure the added benefit of +P would exist in your scenario. If you can easily maintain control and come back “online” with the round, then i’de be nuetral. If you can handle it, and the firearm can handle it… get my drift.

    If the motivation to explore this area is based on achieving ultra efficiency against a assailant then I fall back to my traditional mindset in firearm combatives. Instant incapacity is a relativley rare event, and as such, in a handgun fight I’m always going to shoot the bad guy more than once if possible.

    May your mind be clear, your hands be fast, and your aim true…

    sleeper @ # 14: Velocity on the lighter weight projectile. Depth of penetration on the heavier. Actual transferred energy should be roughly the same.

    LC Gladiator @ # 16:
    sleeper @ # 18: Terminal effect equal, just depends on how it feels in your hand.

    sleeper growls and barks:

    Thanks, folks. I have a few boxes of the 185 gr on the way. I’ll compare them to the 230 gr and see if I like ’em better. I suspect reliable feeding is a factor, too.

    They’re not bad, but I hear the new S&W M&P handguns are better, as well as less expensive.

  28. 28
    sleeper growls and barks:

    LC LOBO @ #26:

    That weighs in a 432 ft lb muzzle energy, so in between the other two. I might try it if the 185gr is uncomfortable (and detrimental).
