I think that one of the notions common to the anti-gunner is the idea that being a victim is 'noble'; as if it is better to be noble in your suffering than disruptive in your own defense.

yeah, but it's more than three times the cost.

You think P13 magazines are expensive?

Try finding M10 magazines...

HK Parts Net has them for just shy of $110 a piece. I've seen them in gunshops and at gunshows for more than $150.

The P13 magazines at HK Parts Net are $97 and change, while Midway has them for $110. Oops. Midway is out of stock.

Yes, they are built like tanks, there is no doubt about that.

I have four for my PSP and I figure those are the only four I'll ever need unless they are hit by asteroids.

I was able to accumulate a couple mags back when they were very scarce, prior to the Saxony guns hitting the shore, along with the load of extra mags that came with them. The cheapest I paid was only $40. The most was $75.

This is my BMI marked, 1995 PSP with a holster I bought but never used for carry.


I love that old black nickle TAP ammo. Looks like it was made for the PSP. Style kudos to Hornady.

Haven't shot mine yet and won't get a chance for another two weeks. Oh well. It only came with one mag so I'll have to keep my eyes out for others.

Now the holster hunt begins. I'm looking for IWB. Any suggestions?

corrected

Hey, I can take a little correction, no problem.

I had no idea the P7 and P11 stayed in service that long. Last one I saw on duty was a P7 in the hands of a USPP Cpt in 1986-7, who oversaw the LE function for the SW Region. I should have simply posted that.

Still, how did USPP end up with HK's. Still a mystery.

I guess it's who won the bidding. For awhile they had, and may still have, Benelli shotguns. Cruiser guns are Remington 870s.

Regarding the duty stations, I'll check with my friend when he wakes up. I may very well be wrong about Florida and Texas.

Regarding Philadelphia, they have at least one officer stationed there, as my friend was seriously considering putting in for it when the guy retired last summer.

IWB Holster? Milt Sparks VMII. However, my PSP rides in a cheap Uncle Mike's holster designed for a small auto. It is OWB however.
