Re: First post have mercy :) Which Handgun?

The HK can always be with me. In a backpack or in a holster under the jacket. While the carabine would have been 95% at home. So the best gun is the gun you have in a shit hit the fan situation.

Nice. I'd really like to see some video of it being used...maybe practice extracting on watermelons or something? See how fast you can move from target to target, etc.
