Hi y'all (yup, we say that down New to the board and thought I'd say hi. Prior Marine with alot of handgun experience but first time Steyr owner. I was wanting something else to satiate my range time and was looking around for something unique, well designed and had a reputation in the field. Well, that knocked Glock out of the running (I kid, I kid...). I've only begun to start my collection up again (S&W .38 airweight, Taurus PT 140 and now the Steyr) as my wife is just now embracing the sport (one good thing that happened because of Katrina). Hope to become a regular here and learn alot. I'm waiting on it to ship (bought it off of and growing I feel like I'm 12 and not 31 waiting for the mail to bring me something good!

i have a lot of fun gaming with my m9, but will never be without my s40.

i find it very concealable, hyper accurate, comfy for all day carry and i like having 10 rds ready to go.

good choice
i was ready to part with hard earned cash for a pm 40, but i just love the steyr trigger too much!!

the kahr would be easier to live with on a daily basis, but i realize that in a bad situation i really want that s40.
how bout some video footage: 40s&w vs. THE CANTALOUPE starring penguin!!

my .02 on the RAGING subcompact debate is...

anything below 50 bmg is subcompact. let's all buy mini guns!!!

my local store has a steyr hs50. thinking about buying it, firing it once, and returning it; saying it lacks "oomph". "got anything with a little more "chutzpah?"
