You have someone that's gonna finish it off? Quite a bit of work to finish it.

Very little left to be done to make it a complete lower...just drill a couple of holes and mill the trigger pocket.

That looks like aluminum, does the "white" mean clear anodize finish?

I believe it comes unfinished.

"In The White" means bare cast, no finish.

I dunno, I like the 45c, but the 45 is so much nicer. It's not much bigger and has all the same features with a better grip surface. A compact is a compact, I've got several, but the G29 is the one I use the most. More bang than a 45 and the same package. Single action pull isn't always the best choice for a deep cover defensive weapon.

Da/sa with Thx option to carry sa w safety is appealing. Still haven't decided though. May go with another p220, thats my ish.

Damn hard to beat the 220. Heavy, but about as reliable as a firearm can get. The G29 is my last "Weird" caliber handgun. Sold the 357 sig USP and the G23 for some unknown reason.

I'm sticking with .45 and 9 mil. Picked up a 10/22, got the 5.56, then .308 and possibly 6.8 if it becomes readily available as indicated by lwrc

I've consolidated to standard calibers. 22, 380, 9, 45, 223, 308, 300wm, 12ga

I may get an AK in the future. Still have the 10mm love as well.

Sweet that's a nice stash. Still have the ak but that's gonna beat the misses up a bit so I'm gonna grab her a 556 upper. Maybe an m6SL.

I sold my USPc in .40 as I never could get my hands in a comfortable position with where the safety and decocker were located. My right thumb was either too low and squeezing my left hand away from the grip, or too high and felt like I wasn't holding the gun effectively with my right hand.


Don't get me wrong, I loved the gun, and would probably still have it if it was chambered in 9mm. It was a gun designed for a completely different use than what I have started moving towards with my selection (3-gun).

It was a beautiful weapon, that was fun to shoot.


I have since moved on to the G34 and am adjusting to the difference in feel. There are certain things that I miss, but can't exactly put my finger on compared to the 34. I guess it just felt like a better gun all around, that just didn't fit my needs.


I'll snap a photo of my AR a little later in the week.

Some people do. The cz's, 1911's, S&W M&P series, SA's and a few others all have the same grip angle you're used to. Stick with them, I doubt the HK will feel right either, it's close to the glock in angle.
