I know, I’m sick of the “what pistol” topics also……….After watching “Gross Point Blank” on cable I gave myself this hypothetical Hollywood question to occupy my never-ending need to look at guns.
He is the question I posed to myself: Given that you wanted to carry 2 identical pistols in a waist or shoulder cross draw position what pistol would you choose. The curious thing is that I would not just purchase another one of the pistols I carry now to make a pair.
I usually carry an ultra compact .45. What not for dual handed Hollywood action?
1) The barrel jump is significant for one hand.
2) The beavertail (and the gun itself) is noisy
3) Even as a aluminum framed pistol, it is heavy.
A full-size 1911 (x2) would be a bit bulky and heavy and I wanted to look outside the 1911. Otherwise, it it did not make my question very fun or thoughtful.
Sometimes I carry a Walther P99 .40. It is too fussy with ammunition and doesn’t care much for cheap FMJs. It is hard to tend to a FTF when the other hand is occupied.
After some thought, I really could not come up with a better candidate than 2 Glock 19’s. They are; reliable, hi capacity, lighter weight, quieter (to carry) and I don’t even have a passion for Glocks, not at all.
The Sig 229 seemed to be the obvious second choice. I prefer hammered pistols. The added weight and height was a minus. I suppose the USP would fit the bill.
I just lost about $450 (and it is getting worse) in a crappy stock decision. That could have went to a gun!
Two Glocks would be Ideal
Then you could shoot them "Tactical-Gangsta Style"
