Since I don't have the cash or safe slots for odd handguns or ones I won't shoot, I won't buy a pistol that I cannot buy and stock critical factory spares for. I have had to plead with makers to send a part in the mail rather than insist I send in the pistol (looking at you HK), and I will no longer beg the maker to pretty please sell me a part without gunsmith credentials. I want that sucker, say a firing pin, or a an extractor, right out of my own parts kit. The upshot is that I won't buy from makers who make it a hassle to get parts. So, no HK, no non-1911 Ruger, no non-1911 Springfields. How important are ready spares to you? Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
