    Ya- I got that from rt014. I was just saying USING the SPAS in pump would be like putting an MG42 in semi. But that makes sense about clearing pumps. Never had a semi shot, and probably won't ever get one... however, I could go for an AA12...

    I have a lot of dollars invested in way too many rifles, pistols, revolvers, and shotguns. Thinking about it, and tweaked by this thread, what I usually reach for is a S&W 41 mag revolver, a Marlin lever in 45-70, or a HK standard 45. Everything else usually sits there in the vault gathering dust except on the rare occasions I take several of the 'safe queens' to the range just to play with. I generally hunt deer and elk with the 41 mag revolver (also my main LEO duty gun) and seldom come home empty handed.

    I also have more $$ than necessary invested in firearms and feel that all I really need as far as calibers go is .38 special and 12ga.

    Glock for sure. I own a 21(departmental issue), 23 and a 27(Sub-compact .40). I bought the 23 first and later traded a buddy a few revolvers for the 27 after I was informed by one of my departments range masters that the department would not back me if I shot and killed someone with a gun that was not given departmental OK. And he ment on or off duty. That kind of highlights again the see what your prospective department uses idea. I can barely tell the difference in my hand between the 23 and the 27 with pinkie extension. However the 27 is a dream to CC. Good luck and be safe.

    +1 for the sig 229.
    a little smaller overall than the 226, but still feels good in the hand.
    OTOH, the used P6/P225 german police turn-ins are very nice, too - if you can find one they generally run less than $450. (8 shot 9mm)

    Glock 23 gets my vote.
