Way cool! Anyone know any reliable glock alternatives? I'd like solely for home defense, but could do without the $500 price tag.

Better get them now...just saw Obama's speech. Prices will skyrocket soon if not already. Sad, really.

He has been directing his focus on "assault weapons" and "semi-auto" handguns. Not saying that the price won't go up, just specifying on what I've been hearing.

I'm a big Rossi fan, but want to caution anyone who goes to Academy to buy one of these: Examine the gun closely for mechanical problems like timing and cylinder lockup. Not long ago, I was looking at the Rossi 3" 357 mag revolver at Academy (which were widely reported as spotty, quality wise), and I was dismayed to see how poorly machined it was. There were notable defects on the cylinder ratchet. I pointed it out to the employee behind the counter, who said, "Oops, that one needs to go back to the distributor."
I've owned a number of Rossi products over the years, generally well made and servicable. But quality has gotten iffy lately.
