I was recently comparing stuff because I've been wanting to get back into shooting... I was looking more at .40 SW stuff, but they generally have the same designs chambered for the big 3 (9mm, .40, .45). The HK USP was what I was originally looking at, but as I did more research the Sig P22x stuff seemed like it might be a little better, or at least on the level depending on what you like.  Are you going to a try before you buy place?  I don't know what you want to spend... they are both kind of pricey, but maybe you get a discount?  That Sig P220 Combat model looks like the perfect fashion accessory for a Marine.  Those S&W Sigma series pistols seem decent for what looks to be considerably less money.

Curious to hear what you get and what you think of it.

I picked up the Springfield .45 XD with 2 13 round clips and a bunch of extras for under $500

Best of luck to you while you're over there.

I *almost* ordered an Acog for my AR-15 here a while back. I see you have one on your duty gun. You like it as much as everyone else seems to?

That said, nice XD. I recently went Glock instead. Next purchase is either the HK P30 or the HK45, pretty much exactly like the one Kato bought. It really depends. If I have my concealed carry permit it'll be the P30, because it's just so much smaller. If I still haven't gotten around to getting the permit I'll go for the HK45.

We're assholishly derailing Kato's thread.

Anywho, speaking of the HK45, it's over a grand where you got it Kato? I got quoted $902 for one a couple days ago from a local gun shop here. Granted I'll have to pay tax on top of that, but it'll still be at least $50 cheaper. That sucks. You should get a military discount or something  icon_neutral

ACOG is great, unlike in COD4  icon_razz  Kinda crazy here today, had a badguy shoot at my patrol and I with a shotgun.  The shells were regular buckshot, but filled with a lot of glass and high density plastic.  I guess the reason for that kind of shot would be that it doesn't show up in an x-ray?

On another note, I came across an abandoned puppy that literally followed me back to base (after I gave it a little MRE snack)
Don't know what to do about the little guy, but he's way too cute to push out the door.....

Hey Jarrod!!! Whats up man???  Did Missouri dry up yet?

As for the puppy, at first I tried to ignore it so it would go away.  I really didn't want to get too attached in case I couldn't keep it.  However, I carried him to my commanding officer and got permission to keep the little guy.  Still have no name for him though....any suggestions?  And of course, in true Marine Corps fashion, all my marine buddies keep on saying that I keep the dog around so I can eventually eat him.

Yeah actually haven't had any rain for a couple of days now... shocking I know.  I was going to suggest kato for the dog's name, but dogmeat works.

Found out that a good friend of mine just got a call from the army about potentially getting recalled and sent to afghanistan.  Sounds like things are definitely not rosy in that area.

Best wishes my friend!
