    Good advice. As for the 17L or 34...I'm not a huge fan of the long slide Glocks nor the 9mm cartridge. Granted, the 9mm has been revamped and improved technologicaly, and can probably hold it's own and perform satisfactorily for SD, I just want a big ol' honkin' .45ACP. The cartridge God created. Plus, I already own two 9mm Glocks, I don't really need another.

    Unless an FDE Glock 45 crosses my path... :w000t:

    As for the caliber of the AR...like the .45ACP, I just prefer a 30 caliber cartridge over a 22 caliber. I could go 7.62x39, but does it perform any better than the .300 Blackout? The only advantage I see in the 7.62x39 over the .300 Blackout is the price of the ammo. I'm not a long distance shooter. Hell this AR probably won't be fired psst 50-60 yards. Yeah, I realize that going long is where the 5.56/.223 really shines, but brother, I can't even SEE that far!

    I voted other. I feel the Lord leading you to get a suppressor if you don't already have one. Ok, I'm pretty sure the Lord is not leading you however you need one. :)

    I'd like to have a can, but the way I am, it would be a gateway drug. And there's no way in hell I can afford to enter the class 3 realm. :faint:

    Probably not what you want to hear, but I'd take that money and invest it for retirement.
    I don't have a clue what you have done so far toward that goal, and don't want to know.
    Most pensions and 401K's are inadequate for a comfortable retirement unless one is making some serious monthly wages and have invested heavily over the years.
    Just my opinion. It's your decision and I will congratulate you on any way you wish to spend it.

    ^^^^^^ If the $ is invested properly then it can turn into a firearm or can every year for the rest of your life. :)

    If the money is left invested, compound interest can take a nest egg and make it into a decent retirement.

    If you have enough to get a few acres of land that is a good investment too.

    ballistically, the x39 is very similar. A lot of optics companies sell their 300bo BDC reticles as being able to be used with x39. Both rounds are good within 400yards too. I keep my hunting shots within 200 yards though. Both cartridges work great out of short barrels, and how I see it, you have two choices: suppressed, or cheap? If you want suppressed, go with 300bo. If you want cheap, go x39. $.28 for soft point ammo kinda speaks for itself. I can go to the range and let loose a few hundred rounds without wanting to cry. It also opens up other avenues of spending money, like buying a x39 bolt gun that you can shoot cheap too. Works great for hogs as well.
