It seems that a brand new G19 and a brand new Mossy 500 decided they didn't like living in the store and wanted to come home with me last night. Along with a couple of holsters, ammo, and a houge grip.
The G19 shoots like a dream. Of all the 9s I tried out that was the one that I felt most comfortable with and it seemed like I couldn't miss with it. These things are just too easy to shoot! I am afraid that I am indeed going to become a glock groupie.

The wifey even shot a few rounds with me. Unfortunately she didn't believe me, despite my repeated warnings, about the 12ga. Now I have a pair of lovely dings on my brand new pump gun where it few out of her hands after the first shot. :roll:
Ah well I didn't buy em to look pretty and I guess she will be sticking with the old single shot .410 (note to self, gotta go get some 00 for that one...)

Thanks again to Glockgirl for letting me try her 19 out this past weekend. That made my mind up for me.

Now if a certain someone who shall almost remain nameless *cough* NAWG *cough* will decide to sell me their AK I will be much less concerned about the zombies. :D

Congrats on both of those, i also have a modified mossberg 500 that has been dropped dozens of times. I hate taking them apart but other then that i've never found a better shotgun for the money.

AK = ultimate zombie killer, I do plan on selling it soon I'll let you know as soon as I do. I'll probaly ask like 200-250 and you can have first dibs.

According to the following article found here:

you may want to buy up the buck shot for your 12 guage instead of using the AK against the zombies.

STOCKTON -- THE FACTS by Martin L. Fackler, MD

Madman shoots 35 in Stockton schoolyard; 30 of those hit survive. That
would have been the appropriate headline. Why did the media dwell almost
exclusively on the five that did not survive?
A military type AK-47 rifle was used. Full-metal-jacketed military type
bullets were used. That 86% of those children recovered from their wounds comes
as no surprise to those who understand this particular bullet's wounding
potential
. Those familiar with the international laws governing warfare
recognize that the military full-metal-jacketed bullet is specifically designed
to limit tissue disruption -- to wound rather than to kill. Purportedly
mandated for "humanitarian" reasons by the Hague Peace Conference of 1899, this
type of bullet actually proves to be more effective for most warfare. It
removes not only the one hit from the ranks of the combatants, but also those
needed to care for him.
Full-metal-jacketed bullets
are prohibited for hunting; they are too likely
to wound rather than kill. Most full-metal-jacketed AK-47 bullets do not deform
significantly on striking the body, unless they strike bone. They
characteristically travel point-forward until they penetrate 9 to 10 inches of
tissue (if a bullet yaws, turning sideways during its tissue path, it causes
increased disruption). This means that most AK-47 shots will pass through the
body causing no greater damage that produced by handgun bullets. The limi
ted
tissue disruption produced by this weapon in the Stockton schoolyard is
consistent with well documented data from Vietnam (the Wound Data and Munitions
Effectiveness Team collected approximately 700 cases of AK-47 hits), as well as
with controlled research studies from various wound ballistics laboratories.
To put the 17 January 1989 Stockton incident in context, it must be
compared with past shootings:
1. Only four of the eleven shot at the ESL Co. in Sunnyvale, CA, on 16
February 1988,
survived. The weapon was a 12 gauge shotgun.
2. Only eleven of the thirty-two shot in the MacDonalds (24 July 1984, San
Ysidro, CA) survived. Of the three weapons used, the deadliest weapon by far
was a pump-action 12 gauge shotgun.
or at least don't make the mistake of using FMJ ammo.

Excellent. Even better - I have a very small website business (desgin, build, and host very simple easy sites) and one of my customers is a day care. Their semi-annual payment is coming due. So the daycare will be buying my AK47.
It's from the children?
:rotfl:

Congrats on the purchases, I too liked the G19 and may have purchased it, if I had more experiance back when I initially made my purchase.

Have fun with the 12ga!!!!
