    30 Carbine on hand for my two M1's.
    32 ACP for my Colt M1903 made in 1918.

    And, one of my all time favorites, which I have three rifles for, is 7.92X57JS (aka 8MM Mauser). I've got both milsurp and commercial in that caliber.
    My Mauser K98k and my M1 Garand would be the last rifles I parted with.

    Of course I can't be the ONLY guy with 1,000 rounds of 1954 Bulgarian military surplus 7.62X54R light ball? Right?
    Or 1,000 rounds of 1976 Chinese milsurp 7.62X39?
    I have plenty of 30 carbine for the six I own.

    7.92X57 mauser? I have 5K in linked belts as ready ammo, can't tell you how much more I have, but no commercial product.
    Only have 3 guns in 8X57, a Yugo M-48, a FN-49 and a MG-34.

    I will never part with my Garands, some I have had for over 50 years.

    Now, I have zero rounds of 7.62X54R and no guns for it, gave away the last case of it to a good friend.

    Chinese 7.62X39 in 1,200 round cases is stacked six high on a full pallet.

    But is there anything in a hand gun form thats more of a equalizer than the glock 40 mos with red dot. I can put rounds on a man size target with mine at close to 200 yards it’s pretty amazing. When i think about it.

    Ive killed a doe at 59yds a hog from a tree stand. And although close don’t count. At 130yds i hit so close to a coyote the dirt blew up all over the dog and it jumped and yelped.

    Oh and I’ve shot probably as much 40 s&w out of mine as 10mm without barrel change or a hiccup. So its a dual caliber gun without a doubt
    Well, . . . one of my pistols is an AR, . . . and your wimpy little 40 or 10mm won't stand up to it, . . . to say nothing of a 30 rd mag that you most certainly don't have in your plastic fantastic striker fired what-the-heck-ever.

    May God bless,

    I think that 10mm is a great round and is becoming more popular all of the time. I am also a big fan of Glock. With that said an FN Five-Seven is a good long range handgun as well.

    AND packs a lot of firepower in that little cannon.

    My son has one, . . . and both of us love shooting it.

    I'm really surprised some of the mfg's have not come out with a slim package for this about the size of a Bersa Thunder .380, . . . it would be light weight, . . . hold at least as many rounds, . . . and would surely light up the scene of any self defense shooting that came along.

    May God bless,
    Dwight

    Regardless of what ATF says I do not consider any of the AR small rifles to be hand guns.
    New life as a house husband, major shift in duties.

    I've been thinking about one of these.

    12ga bp no permits needed. Handload whatever shot/ball/slug you wish. Only 2 shots but a lot of firepower. Might be a solution for those liberal enclaves that force you to have your cartridge guns locked up. They make one with longer barrels, might be dandy for hunting too.

    You wouldn't have to load it with lots of powder to make it effective. I'd practice "gun control", that is using both hands.
