That Ruger American seems to get decent reviews.

I'll look at the Glocks, but i want 10 rounds in a smallish form factor.

The Ruger also has an extended mag with 13 rounds.

Went through Academy the other night to pick up a new heater for the deer blind. Saw a giant tub display with hundreds of these 30 round AR mags. Regularly $10.99 on sell for $5.99. Price in cart says $7.99, but at my store they were $5.99. I passed and got two Magpul Gen M3 at $14.99, but $5.99 is dirt cheap for a range magazine. Just remember, a gun grabbing Congress is fixing to be sworn in, and like Obama, they will probably cause all guns and accessory prices to go up as people stock up. I have bought so many 30 round magazines over time by picking up one or two every time I go in Academy, that I had to pull most of them out of my safe, and store them in a tote.

I liked this part.

I may head up to Academy today to look around.  Nearest one is about 15 or 20 miles away.  Then again, nearest anything to me is 8 miles, so it's all in a day.

You probably don't have to drive 50 miles to someplace that will let you shoot for a reasonable price.

Nope.  It's called the back yard.

Four teen boys were playing with a loaded handgun in Georgia yesterday when one of them unintentionally shot one and killed his friend. The teen then called 911 and shot and killed himself before they arrived.

Well then, whose gun was it? Parent? Where did they get it? You left things of importance out of your description.

Don't know these answers yet.  A 15 yr old accidently shot his 17 year old friend.  When police arrived, the 15 year old killed himself.

Read 6 articles. No info available as of yet. Probably one of our twitter following people can find relevant information from a local source since the police are not releasing names or information at this time. Tragedy, but somehow, one of these "teens" had a gun. Looked like a fairly nice neighborhood judging by the houses.

Their names have been released, but other details are still sketchy.  It seems they were not from the neighborhood where the shooting occurred.  

Other than the fact that this is tragic, not sure why Vance brought it up.

One time, long, long ago, we're about 12 YO.  Spending the night with my neighbors [2 brothers], parents away at church night, Wednesday night.  Childhood friend at the time, takes his Dad's deer hunting rifle out from the gun 'cabinet', points it at his brother, points it at me, points it around the living room.  Points it at the floor, pulls the trigger, BANG!!! We WTF, eyes as big as saucers. Gun goes off puts a .270 round through the floor of the house, small black burn in the carpet, blows a pillow up.  Lucky ass boys, parents never found out.  We also drank out of a water hoses and rode bikes with no helmets.

The kids I grew up with would never point a gun at each other, even joking. We all new what a gun could do. We all saw the family gun case or gun rack in every home. Back when I was young, you either threw a bunch of cased rifles and shotguns in a closet, had a standing gun rack in the corner, a rack mounted on a wall, a small cheapo glass fronted gun case, or a real gun cabinet with glass and lights, and a some even had locks. Pistols were loaded and in most master bedroom nightstands. Yet I never remember a large number of accidental shootings like we see today.

Real, your story is why it's true that unloaded guns kill people...........

I had a similar experience in boot camp...........Sitting on the ground with our M-14s passing around what was supposed to be dummy rounds and practicing loading then pointing our rifle at the window and pulling the trigger..........Somehow, one round was real...........When it fired, the DI went nuts and threatened to kill any of us who told anyone what happened...........Don't know who he thought we might tell since we were never around anyone but us and our DIs anyway..........He was lucky that rifle was pointed upward at the window............Or, he'd had to explain how a maggot shot another maggot without being on the rifle range............

Yeah, I know what you mean. Been around a few kids that were heavily influenced at a very young age under some unique and often intolerable parental behavior. The kid that was withdrawn, and quietly distressed to the point of naushea because of some bizzare behavior they are surrounded by. The bully that was exposed to bad behavior by an abusive Father or boyfriend. Luckily in the time I was raised, there weren't a lot of families that had terrible behavior. My friend's families were lower middle class to self made semi rich people. They all had a family structure, and we had a small country community where everyone knew each other, and everyone knew everything about each other. It's what has been lost and sorely missing in our nation in my opinion.

However, in the mid to late 70's and even early 80's, that all changed. Something really altered the family unit in our society in that short period of time. It wasn't a change for the better, it was a turn to living like Feral animals with no societal structure.

I contend that the change that bloomed during the late 70's and 80's was sown by seeds planted in the 1960's 

"Something really altered the family unit in our society" = the 60's

I would agree that the 60's had the culture change, but that change was manifested in itself a generation later by destroying the family unit our society was founded upon. The 70's households were the first generation I remember that had a high rate of divorce, and unwed mothers with no Father leading the household. It seemed like in the early 70's, most people had their 1-1/2 kids, 2 pets and perfect family suburban neighborhood family home, or town home. At some point the 60's era old corporate guys retired, the young corporate vice presidents flourished. I'm not sure what would lead a man into abandoning their families, but this is when I remember everyone's parents were getting a separation or divorce. Money? Infidelity? Marrying too young? I believe it is a lack of a family unit, and moral values based on God and a Biblical foundation for life as led by the Mother and Father. I can't offer any other rational explanation for the decline in our society. There was some conformity to societal structure when school prayer and Christian values were exposed. Now it's just a free for all of bad people being glorified for doing bad things..

I think it will be the Springfield XDM Compact 45.  Comes with a 9 round and a 13 round mag (not so compact with 13 rounds), which would be good for EDC and trail hiking.

Anyone shot this one?

Made it to my deer stand about 3:15. Saw a nice heavy young 8 point. Had a group of piglets show up and shot killed two and missed a third with my suppressed 22 at 75 yards. Forty minutes later I shot a decent sized boar that ran off some does with my suppressed AR-15. Nice and cold after a hard two days of rain.

I like hog hunting. Deer hunting is great, but it’s one and done. Hogs are whack em and stack em. Suppressed hunting is awesome.
