    If my memory serves, you like firearms a little more than the average 2nd amendment observing American.

    Either way, I'm pretty stoked and I'm looking for people to bask in the glory!

    Of course what I really want is a Colt Python, but if Colt's getting back into the DA revolver game you'd have to think they're probably on the horizon too.

    Get an 18 inch 12 gauge Mossberg 500 or a 590A1. Mount a tac light on it.

    Just an FYI, long guns can be hard to maneuver in a house without sufficient training. I'd say get a Glock. Pretty sure the Gen 3's are Cali compliant.

    I've had a streamlight tlr-3 on my g19 for years. It cracked earlier this year, and they replaced it for free.

    I have to research that nearly anything tactical is illegal in L.A county,pistol grips etc.

    Good deal. I was between a TLR-1 and the X-300. A few of my former military buddies who had experience with both suggested the Surefire and the price difference wasn't huge so that was what I opted for. I use Streamlights at work though and they don't generally give me too many issues.

    You should still be able to get that gun and a tac light. I'm not an expert on Cali law, but Oregon seems to want to follow their lead, so I know a bit.

    When I bought mine, the price difference was big. The Surefire seemed great, but the Streamlight was affordable and works.

    Yeah, we get gouged up here which sometimes means that price disparities start to thin out. If I'd went with a TLR-3 it would have been quite a bit cheaper, but I wanted to go with the aluminum body.

    I just ordered a new pair of grips for my 1911 ten seconds ago. Tired of the wood ones. These are aluminum

    Did you go with the flames? Or just plain grips?

    Cool. I've been thinking about some VZ grips for mine. I just have a set of hogues on there now. I'd really like some stag grips, but that's a lot of scratch.

    Been looking for a Sig 9mm. I already ahve a few pistols but other than my walthet i dont feel comfortable with conceal carry. My .40 is just too bulky for me and i dont feel the need to carry that much firepower. I like something i can carry in my pocket as opposed to a holster hid behind a shirt or jacket

    A Glock as a pocket pistol is a bit of a scary proposition.

    Ive never had a problem w any of my Sigs. Great guns. You may want to look at some holsters. I have one from Vigitac that hugs my hip i barely know its there. W a single stack its really tight . My double stack .40 is like a cannon when i carry it.
