Going to the Nation’s Gun Show in a week or so. I fear a MASSIVE rise in prices for 9mm and .45 rounds. I NEVER buy less than 2 thousand at a time. I like to do 100 rounds a week to keep my skills sharp. We shall see. I carry a S&W 4506 or a CZ-75. Sadly, I am for more accurate with the CZ in 9mm. I guess I will never be quite as deadly with the .45, seeing as how I am 5’ 7” and weigh 150 pounds.
Try a 1911.
I left the state. I moved. Bugged out. I managed to make my work remote (Home office) and left to the west of the Hudson river.
I am imploring all that I know - family, friends. Please leave.
Connecticut is not the state I grew up in. It’s not serene, beautiful nor is it safe for us. The cities have already overflowed their boundaries, and spread like wildfire.
That state is just plain dangerous. And without the law recognising my right to defend myself and those in danger of harm or deadly force - I can’t be there anymore. An environment has been created where there is no good news.
When I return to CT (I rent a room in Newtown) I am just a 10 minute walk to the Elementary school. Newtown CT is a gorgeous, safe town full of good people. It is quintessential New England. I am from this area, have roots here and know (What feels like) most of the town.
Knowing that, please understand my warning to be as serious as I can state: The local CT government is “coming”. At the helm of this at-one-time beautiful state are very angry, very spiteful liberals who are power hungry in ways that we can only try to comprehend. I work for a powerful lobby in CT, and I see the inner operations of the state from the perspective of an infiltrator.
What I saw made me pack up my family and leave. I couldn’t sell my house in time, so I shortsaled and walked away. I ran from this state because things are about to get very bad.
I’m not just dropping words on the internet, being an arm-chair critic or spewing warnings. I lost tens of thousands of dollars in possessions, equipment and business contacts to leave that state. And in doing so, I am building a homestead in the country in an attempt to protect my family from what is about to happen.
God bless us all.
I don't think that your height/body weight is a hindrance with the .45 at all. My 19 year old daughter was very proficient at combat range with my Ruger P-90 keeping everything within a hand sized group in a rapid fire practice session and she is 5"7" and very slim. As a matter of fact, she preferred the .45 over her new Bursa .380 saying that if she had to make a hole she wanted to make a big one! I would suggest changing your stance to the old FBI crouch while leading with your off side shoulder slightly.
