About 3 weeks ago, I was driving on the expressway, coming off the GNO, when I saw what I thought was a helicopter with a searchlight (figured it was 5-0 looking for someone). This thing was hauling ass, and then just veered straight down, about 100 yards away. I thought it was going to crash. It di...

Yes on the DA/SA.

By way of further background - My two prior were a .40 S&W Sigma (original series, circa 1998, oh the horror) and a .357 S&W J-frame. I carried the ...

I need a new gun. I think I want an all steel either 9mm or .45. If I go .45 I want a 1911 I think, but don't have big $$. Budget is $400-600.
I'm leaning towards cz75 and the knockoffs (baby eagle, eaa witness), Baretta 92, maybe a PX4, Remington 1911, or maybe a Sig P220.
