The researcher has seen nothing like it. "It's almost as if he was gearing himself up for the challenge," he says. "And then, when the challenge eventually presented itself, his brain suddenly responded by injecting liquid nitrogen into his veins. Suddenly implemented a blanket neural cull of all surplus feral emotion. Suddenly locked down into a hypnotically deep code red of extreme and ruthless focus."
He shakes his head, nonplused. "If I hadn't recorded those readings myself, I'm not sure I would have believed them," he continues. "OK, I've never tested Special Forces before. And maybe you'd expect a slight attenuation in response. But this guy was in total and utter control of the situation. So tuned in, it looked like he'd completely tuned out."

Tomorrow morning, as soon as the store opens, I am going to buy a Ruger 10/22.
I have been thinking about this purchase for a long time, weighing it against a Marlin 795 and a CZ 452. Let's be honest, all three are great guns, but the first time I shot a Ruger I thought "this is the one."

I'm betting that a lot of people are wondering this but don't know the answers - there's a lot of research out there on the subject. Bang for your buck, I've heard an equal number of people suggest a Chiappa Arms cheap POS as I've heard suggest reliable firearms closer to the $600 mark. Everyone's got a favorite, but not everyone will like your favorite.
Make a list, maybe add some details, fuck it I'm tired and want others to tell people what to do. Off the top of my head these are my top 5:
1. S&W M&P - good ergonomics, reliable, it's a friggin Smith and Wesson. Good warranty, good aftermarket parts today, good accessories, I have yet to hear a drawback other than "doesn't fit my hand".
2.HK USP - reliable reliable reliable. Personally this would be the most bang for my buck.
3. Sig SP2022 - It may be polymer, it may be under $600, but it's definitely a Sig. And it's a service pistol for an entire nation's police force, so it'll have a lot of import aftermarket parts over the next decade. This means it could be better than #4 in the long run.
4. Beretta 92 - The military equivalent of this pistol has been a service pistol for a much larger contract for years. I have never witnessed this pistol fail to fire or load, and it is one of the most commonly rented & bought in its many variations. So many accessories, so much durability, such an easy takedown/reassemble. Best of the bunch in this regard.
5. CZ-75. Czechnology. All of the Czechnology. Might be the cheapest of the bunch but it is a gun in every sense of the word and the most of it for such a low price. Best first gun if you have less than $500 to drop if you ask me.
Don't criticize my list, just make your own. Looking for information & opinions, not arguments.
