Its always fun to show people things about guns. I took a neighbor back in savannah ga shooting one time when my dad came down for a visit. My dad has a compensated glock 19C. He had it on him so we brought it along. I also brought a kel-tec .380 and a taurus pt111millenium pro. I asked my neighbor which one he thought would be the most tame and which would have the most recoil. He figured the glock to be the hardest to handle and the keltec the easiest.

He was shocked to see the glock hardly flinch and the keltec try to jump out of his hands. Lol

the craziest gun i had ever shot is an NAA Mini 22 magnum. it will exit your grip with no warning.

My thread has become truly multi purposed :D

I like that 1911 sig.
At work we use the 226 which im not as much a fan of but its alright. Im mostly just unhappy with that prestageable double action trigger. Just wierd. Double/single ftw.

You guys have some sweet guns. Can't wait to get you a few pics of some of our familys wild collection. More of the eccentric guns that few people tend to have. I think you'll like em.;)

Do you have to use the Sig? Some agencies will let you use whatever you want as long as the ballistics and caliber are the same. this is why I bought my Jericho in the first place. the PD I applied to required a Beretta 92FS or a similar gun.

Not for us. No choice. I preferred the M9 beretta. (double single preference again)

if you prefer the Beretta you would love the Jericho. the grip is similar, the Jericho can use the same mags, but not the other way around and it's more reliable and accurate with less recoil. basically it's better all around. you can fire it underwater, full of sand, or frozen in ice.

I can't wait to see what your wheels look like (on the Foz).

FWIW, I hate DAO semiauto pistols as well. My 229 is DA/SA. My first pistol was a Colt Delta Elite, and I carried a 1911 in the Army, so I like SA also.

My Witness Elite Match is SA, and a very close cousin to the Jerico meifert has. They're patterned of the classic CZ-75. Mine's all steel, and very very accurate. I shoot it better than the 229. I've only had the TacOps out a few times, but I can shoot it about as well as the Witness. Which is to say, the bullets basically hit where you "think" them.

Back to cars: The whole plastidip thing seems cool. I was wondering how well it holds up. I keep hearing how easy it is to peel off overspray, etc. So, I was afraid it may not wear well.

Bronze Rim Pics.....

Black on left, first coat gold tint on right.




First coat of gold:



As gold as I wanted them. You can make them very bright gold if desired.





On the car:













In sunlight they appear much brighter.
