    Bond --- James Bond

    I just saw the new Bond film. Very new feel to the aging Bond.
    Now to the question. What type of gun does he use??
    I think it was a Walther, but what type & model?

    Haven't seen the last few Bond flicks, but didn't he always use a Walther PPK? [ame]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_James_Bond_firearms[/ame]

    I have a PPK. It's a nice gun - small but it shoots like a bigger gun.

    Actually, this "darker side" of Bond is truer to the original author's character.

    Re: Bond --- James Bond

    I went to a large gun shop 7 asked why so few Walthers were on hand. His reply that they are good , many others now have better safety features.
    I now am looking into Sigs more deeply.

    The darker Bond is more engaging than some of the cartoon bonds of the 90's.

    I went looking for a 22 for my wife to learn to target shoot & found myself finding many toys for myself! I think a revolver would be better than a semi for her to start.

    Re: Bond --- James Bond

    I bought my wife a Buck Mark 22. It is not a revolver, but it is accurate and very easy to shoot. The good part is that you would enjoy shooting it too.

    Thanx for the info. I went to Cabellas & held a Buck Mark. Very nice & small enough my wife would be able to handle it.

    I think I have a winner ----- Kahr CW 9 compact with a 9mm punch. It has been recommended by a few cops as they carry it also.

    I looked at it online - looks very nice. What is the consensus regarding the future of concealed carry permits in Illinois?

    Re: Bond --- James Bond

    Well -as of12-13-12 Illinois has 6 months to write a law concerning carry laws. I will be contacting the politicos to tell them I am for it. The state can make some $$$$ also, that in itself should be enough for our crappy state. Every police -fire -paramedic & political I know carries a gun , then why can't I protect myself from the crooks that all carry!

    Just returned from Gat gun in Elgin & found the hand gun I think will be a good fit for my wife. A Ruger 22 cal, 10 shot revolver with a red laser sight.

    I love Bond since he and MacGyver were my heroes as I grew up. That being said, I would be remiss not to mention Springfield Armory and their guns. They are top notch and cheaper than Sigs.
