What's the best low maintenance handgun?  So far, most people tell me to buy a Glock, preferably a 45 cal. for stopping power.  Some say 9mm is fine. Any thoughts?  Thanks!

Cool!  What caliber would your recommend?  They say 45 cal is still the best, but having more rounds with a 9MM seems so...reassuring!

It depends on what you want. If you want power go with 45, if you want velocity go with 9mm. People in the military would prefer 45, mabilis pumatay eh. Kahit nakavest yung tinamaan matutumba--di mamatay pero matutumba :D Pero kung pang sports mo gagamitin, 9mm na lang :)

pasingit...

narrow your choices to 45 or 9mm caliber.  it also depends on your preference.  if you want power, 45.  if you want speed, 9mm.  if you want more rounds + power, you can modify the 45 to have more rounds (hi-cap).

i agree with 2mbaga that glock is a very good choice.  however, if you're budget-conscious, armscor is decent enough.  just use original (fmj) bullets for protection.  for practice, though, you may use reloads.  in my experience, armscor is prone to jamming when reloads are used... but not if original bullets are used.

Thanks guys for your suggestions!

I was trying to decide to get a 9 or a 45.  A 9mm kasi, maporma, tapos, halos lahat ng bida sa movies, naka9mm!  But, I will buy a 45 instead.  Maiigi na rin ang sigurado!  I'm trying to decide between a Springfield and a Glock.  So far, Glock seems to be the best choice!  For a carry around gun, what model would you advice for a 45 caliber Glock? Thanks again guys!

For a carry around gun, I would suggest a 9mm but for offensive protection 45 would be a better deal. Mas malaki kasi ang slug ng cal.45 compared to a 9mm. Marami din naman dapat ma consider sa performance ng baril like minimum and maximum effective range, tapos yung kundisyon ng mga bala minsan kasi mga naumido na sa tabihan. The best is wala kang kaaway para laging in peace ka. Mahirap din me baril pag wala kang disiplina lalo na't walang training baka madisgrasya or maka-disgrasya ka.

Basta ako mabait na tao, pero masamang kaaway. Pag naagrabyado ako nambabato ako ng buto ng langka.  :peace:

I agree with you completely!  I consider a gun like keeping a fire extinguisher nearby, or accident insurance.  It's something you'd rather never need to use, but buy anyway for peace of mind.  And so, it's best to get the best 'insurance' di ba? Thanks again for the advice!

I understand that the 45 packs more power because of the bigger slug, but what is that velocity or speed you are referring to in the 9mm?

a old military 45 they are tried and tested for over 70 years have few moving parts are easy to repair cost less and the bullets are easier to find and also cost less..  we found a 1941 colt 45 for 20,000p plus the lic... another 8 to 10,000

Regarding the .45 and 9mm debate, I remember what my Daddy (a hunter and a sniper) used to say, "the bigger the diameter of the bullet the more powerful it is upon impact; the smaller the diameter of the bullet, the faster it hits the target."


Thus, if the gun is for self defense, i guess the speed doesn't matter, i wouldn't mind hitting an intruder a split second later for as long i knock him down.  :hihi: I have an armscor 45 and haven't fired it yet for almost a year now, so i guess i can call it maintenance free.  :watchuthink:

I used to have .45's and 9mm's. if for sports only..I prefer a .45..but for self defense..you can never tell..even politicians with bodyguards got killed kung target ka talaga..wala rin silbi yan guns,..been there..killed someone with a .9mm, got imprisoned even if acquitted for self defense..spent millions and Traumas ng pamliya ko lalo na my sons and daughters..
if ever I will buy and use guns again, i'll go for the .45.

But the best gun I have now has 59 bullets with a cross sa dulo..a Rosary..this gives me a perfect peace of mind..remember bros..kung oras mo patay ka rin.
Go for it for sports but be careful and keep calm always.

my advice only ito please.it's up to anyone. :thankyou: :cool2:
