    Hi Guys,


    Im New here in GLOCKTALK, just want to ask advices from you guys because i want to get my first pistol my purpose is to learn how to shoot and later try to compete. i've tried firing 9mm. .40cal, .45.cal hi-cap. but, eversince i really want to own a 1911 .45cal but the the problem is, i still dont have that much budget as of now. do you suggest armscor .45 fs single stack for a beginner like me? most of my friends telling me to get a hi-cap and i know most shooters prefer a hi-cap , but i know owning a hi-cap is more expensive right? that's why i'm confused! i really want to have one na!! i just want to know kung tama ba move ko if ever single stack kunin ko? as of now un palang ang kaya ng budget and plus the shooting gears. thank you in advance!!

    MORE POWER BAND OF GLOCKERS!!!


    RegardS,

    TEDDYBOY

    Im not into competition bur if thats your future plan ..most of them are using Hi-Cap unless you just want to compete in single stack division....saka sa personal protection stand point whether for carry or home defense di ba its wiser to have more rounds to shoot bago ka mag reload..this is just my personal opinion maybe yung mga qualified to give advice esp those in competition will give you more insights to these matters...
    Take Care and Welcome!

    Welcome to BoGs. :)

    In my opinion, it would be better to get a hi-cap in .40 cal if you intend to compete. Advantages over the .45 hi-cap would be a larger mag capacity and less muzzle flip, easier to get sights back on target.

    With the .45 single stack, you could still compete in the Super 1911/Single Stack category. It'll take up more reloads/mag changes and in effect, you'd need to buy more mag pouches and magazines. You might end up spending the money you saved on the single stack on additional mag pouches and magazines.

    Welcome to the BOG teddyboy. :)

    My suggestion is to wait a little longer, save more money and go straight to a hicap 40.

    You can also compete in production, mas matipid. Your choices are the Glock 17, NZ 75B, CZ 75/85, etc.

    any 1911 thats made right should not jam. Armscor 40 is a good base and if norinco will come in with a hi cap 40 duun ako if budget is a problem:)

    good luck

    how much is your budget? get a hi-cap armscor in .40 cal but if your budget permits, get a used para-ordnance p16-40.

    Swak na yan for an armscor .40 hi-cap. forget about the single stack unless you'd be competing sa IDPA (not as popular as IPSC here, so the matches are few and far in between).

    Welcome to the forum!

    Since you're not in CA where you're only limited to 10 rds, I say go for the hi-cap.

    a glock 22 is a very good home/range gun, you can also use it in production as well as standard. if its your first gun, believe me, it wont be your last;f ;f ;f

    for competition lang ba or pang-carry din? For the 1911 hi-cap, I dont think you would want to carry that much weight unless ilalagay mo sa bag, kotse or matyaga ka magholster IWB nang ganun kabigat. Iindahin mo talaga ang bigat after a while. If you want a hi-cap that you can carry and use for competition, I suggest you get a Glock or any hi-cap polymers out there..
