Perfect Configuration

I have been collecting miscellaneous accoutrements, in hopes of attaining the perfect defense configuration. Today I scored a mid-size Ka-Bar.

I have a hard time choosing a knife. Unlike handguns and rifles, one is not given a regular opportunity to utilize or practice with one. I own fixed knives with blades between 5" and 9", tactical folders, and my regular carry, a Cold Steel push dagger. I bought the Ka-bar to try it out as a non-concealed carry weapon. I don't think that will work.

Handguns are a little easier. I'm a classicist. I either like the Glock 17 (9 mm) or a Commander 1911 (.45.) I am also looking at maybe buying a H&K USP .45 for Christmas, because I've been so friendly all year.

All purpose rifle, I have to go with the AR-15. People have numerous bitches about this gun and the caliber. I have about 6 uppers and a couple lowers. The best combination I have is a DPMS lower (pre-ban which I paid a crapload of money for a year ago) and a Rock River A2 upper. No jams, ever. The cartridge also seems ideal because I can fire it all afternoon and carry a lot of it. When I take out my 30.06 bolt to fool around with, I can usually get 30 rounds through it before I'm exhausted.

As far a the shotgun, I have a Mossberg 12 gauge.

If anybody has recommendations for improvements, please let me know.

By the way, I'm still waiting on my Surefire light and hope to stun my neighbors pets as a trial run.

My vote is for the H&K in 45ACP. I have owned mine since late 94 and have only had one malfunction. Looks brand spanking new, the finish is tough.

the plus side is that you can now get the 12 round standard capacity magazine now that the AWB is HISTORY...
