600 rounds of 10mm would probably be pricey.
But I would love to do an OB VATA pistol course. Like if we got a crew of OB dudes together for a class in the future....

I've been through a couple bad ones. Wasted a year of my life in college doing the on-and-off bull shite. I look back on my stagnant state that year as wasted time.

[quote]Naw, there is a reason USSOCOM and MARSOC are all about the 45acp.
Because when you're forced to use non-expanding ammo (FMJ), bigger bullet = bigger hole.
And thanks Rattle for putting that song in my head. :lol:...

I drive a 2010 Yukon Denali. I absolutely love it. It has SO much power, rides very comfortably (air ride suspension), and has some great safety features (like blind spot monitors, backup camera/beepers, etc.). I will agree that older GM trucks didn't have quite the highest top of the line interior ...

Lefty is correct. The CM9 is the cheaper version of the PM9. They are dimensionally identical but the CM9 costs less to make and only includes one mag, hence the sub-$400 price tag.

I love the Coonan. It's def on a future to-buy list.
They actually make a compensated version that's supposed to mitigate a ton of recoil. I bet it is as loud as a jet engine.
