You can get a glock 38 brand new for under 400$. It shoots the 45 GAP. Same as the ACP but shorter cartridge . I dont know if you have seen some of the torture tests but this gun will fire evertime even if you drop it in the mud, sand, water, dirt, ****, throw it at the bear then run and shoot him after. People have shot 15000 rounds without cleaning or oiling and the only part compromised is the spring guide which is only 20$. Ultimate reliability i would say glock. You could also get the glock 20 which shoots a 10mm bullet. If your trying to fend off bears your better off with a big ole' can of bear mace or a shotgun with a hot slug. BTW i carry a Glock 26 and enjoy it.

I wouldn't invest in anything that shoots .45 GAP. Not as readily or cheaply available as .45 ACP, and its long term future is unsure.

I would have have punched her in the ----!

I guess it is the same as calling a ship a boat in the Navy (or a rifle a gun). It really doesn't bug me, I just like feeling that I am superior to everyone else. <G>

What kills me is when a gun/ammo catalog calls them clips. Christ, if you sell them just call them the correct name.

Sorry if this is a repost, but does anyone here have experience with Baby Eagle .45's? (Magnum Reseach/IMI or replicas)

I believe the MR/IMI 941 "Baby Eagle" might fit your requirements if you were looking for a powerful, semicompact/light auto starting around $500.

Baby Eagle's are based on the CZ handgun design. Very strong, very high quality, very reliable. Trigger kinda sucks....long, somewhat heavy DA/SA design. Accuracy ranges from very good to average. All-metal, so heavier than a comparable Glock or XD.

Not a bad pistol at all, but I'd much rather a polymer framed striker-fired pistol.

Oh yeah, the slide design on the CZ/Baby Eagles kind of sucks...poor ergonomics. The exposed part of the slide is very short compared to a more tradition design where the frame doesn't extend up on both sides of the slide, making manually racking the slide more difficult than it needs to be (especially with wet, muddy, or cold fingers).

The sweetest pistol I have ever shot was a Kimber 1911 (I think it was something like an American Eagle model - something like that). Probably in the $1000-$1500 range BUT when you shot it you could feel how expensive it was. I put 3 shots in a quarter sized hole at 10 yards the first time I fired the gun. It was like shooting a stick of butter!

My local gunsmith specializes in AR-15's and 1911's. He has tried many times to get me to let him build me a nice 1911. I just can not justify they $1200 I would end up spending on it right now.

You may want to consider that most states will not allow you to carry a semi auto pistol in wilderness areas. Autos are for protection against people, and if you are stopped by a wildlife officer, you can get in trouble. Most people I know that carry bear protection side arms, use either a 357 or 44. Also, you may not be allowed to carry anything with a barrel that is less than 6 inches in length. A longer hand gun would be easier to shoot, and it is not like you are trying to conceal it from an animal. If a wildlife officer thinks you are trying to conceal a weapon in the wilderness, they automatically think you are up to know good.

The "tall" is the smallest they offer, and the grande, which also sounds big, is in the middle. Then Venti, whatever the **** that means if the big one. They go out of their way to confuse me every time I place an order.

I have never heard of a single instance of any laws concerning anything you posted. I am not trying to argue but do you have proof of even one point you made above?

It is not allowed in Florida. Just check your local hunting regulations.

This would be an issue on some public land or wildlife management areas, not private land.

What is not allowed? Do you have a link to the statute?

It used to be illigel to carry a weapon on Federal or State parks in Texas recently that law has changed in favor of carrying.

I am afraid that I do not. I saw it in a publication a few years back, which was put out by a Florida based wildlife regulatory agency.

I think it would be a good idea for the OP to check the state that he plans to use his firearm for the purpose of protection from dangerous wildlife.
