    *Ahem*... Well, I see I showed up to this party late.... probably not such a bad thing as far as I'm concerned.

    Anyway, I don't believe I've ever even fired a S&W pistol, but as far as polymer-framed pistols go, I'm a firm believer in the gospel according to Gaston Glock. I whole-heartedly believe that the G19 is the closest thing to a perfect carry gun that currently exists. Not too big, not too small, perfectly balanced and proportioned with a very respectable 15+1 capacity in a small package. It's lightweight and comfortable to carry for hours at a time, yet there's little recoil, and quick, accurate follow-up shots are easily achievable. It's dead nuts reliable, tough as nails, and simple. Just draw, aim, and shoot. I personally like not having any external safeties on a carry piece. I'm so used to the 19 by now that almost every time a bring it up to eye-level, the sights are already aligned for me, and the trigger is pretty decent too. I always group pretty well with it.

    But I also have a soft spot for the classics. I wouldn't mind having a nice Mk III Browning Hi-Power either.

    good thing you changed the image cause it was really unnecessary and odd

    incidentally can anyone identify this weird round ive found back home it basically looks like a 303-308 but its red plastic and filled with bird shot it looks like some kind of novelty round where they've just some kind of weird 303-308 birdshot.... thing....

    And all the ammo is already paid for. I envy that so much...

    You still thinking about getting a .308 bolt gun for yourself?

    get a pistol grip attachment my uncle had a spas 12 years ago before he had to sell it cause he moved to the states i was able to fire it comfortably at like 15 years old

    10,000 rounds each?! Holy fuck...

    I've mulled over getting a .308 bolt action at some point. I'm not too confident in the QC of new manufacture Remington guns, based on some of the things I've read, so a Savage M10/M110 looks like a probable choice for me.

    The model 10 is hands down a way better platform then the 700,good choice!

    some one was telling me that on average around 1 in 3 Remingtons come with a factory fault of some kind but they're the most versatile and have the most 3rd party after market parts

    I don't like the fact that the 700's bolt handle is only copper brazed on...


    They can end up doing this just by cycling the bolt normally.

    If you can find an older used 700 (made before Remington was bought out by Cerberus) that's in good condition and reasonably priced, I'd say go for it. It will likely be a good performer without issue. But I would pass on anything new.

    Yeah shitty way to attach a bolt handle to a bolt body imo...
    Thing is you don't know if you have a lemon and do this in the first 10 shots,or after 10 years on shot # 5021..
    Much prefer one piece bolt bodies,or like the savage 10 have the handle bolted from the rear of the bolt body itself.
