  • I am a real American now....More gun stuff.

    I do feel like a real American now because I now have a collection of fine firearms. I am ready to defend our country from terrorism, foreign or domestic. (and Mini-Me)

    Today I picked up my Sig Sauer SP2022. Photo listed below-

    Too bad ya deleted the pic. Sig's are nice weapons. Very nice to work with. IF, I were to purchase a personal weapon, thats what it would be. P226, I have lots and lots of training with one, although I am very sadly out of qualification with any military firearms right now. That's the only downfall that I can see to being here in DC right now - no "free" range access anymore.

    An excerpt from the website I searched...

    This pistol may well be state-of-the-art in defensive sidearms, but it does have one major shortcoming: It really strains the old saying, "Handsome is as handsome does," to its limits. I was mightily impressed by this pistol's performance, but it will be quite a while before I can regard it as a thing of beauty.

    Let's face it, some handguns are loaded with glamour, allure, "sex appeal" or whatever you want to call it - the Luger is one such gun that comes to mind, the Colt Python another. The SIG-Sauer P-226 is not such a pistol; it's built strictly for business. If your primary interest in a handgun is as an object of aesthetic contemplation a lovely thing with lustrous polish and blueing and a figured exotic wood stock, I suggest you forget about the P-226 right now and turn to the next article. If, on the other hand, you might be interested in a superbly accurate, rugged, reliable service auto that may just be the best thing of its kind in the world today, then read on ...
    oohhhooooohhh...

    SIG acquired J.P. Sauer & Son a few years ago, and recently SIG-Sauer, now the firearms division of SIG, set up its own agency - Sigarms, 8330 Old Courthouse Road, Suite 885, Dept. GA, Tyson's Corner, VA 22180 - to handle importation and distribution of their fine line of auto pistols in the U.S.A. (Previously, Interarms was importing these pistols, and many guns presently on sale will have Interarms markings.)

          So,who needs a"reason" to buy a gun?Shooting is fun and relaxing.It takes some coordination to hit a small target placed a distance away and the act actually benefits your mind just as doing fine work like crocheting or sewing.
          Whenever you do close work,the mind's synapses form other connections and pathways to help calculate what to order the hands and fingers to do next.

            Well put. And with that, I'm definitely hitting the range this Saturday. Its been a while since I've fired the 5.7 and now that I have my holster, I need to pratice drawing and firing from it. I also need to get off my lazy a** and put the paperwork in for my CCW.

              I had two favorite handguns-A Dan Wesson .357 with inter-changable barrels (2", 4", 6"). The 6" was very accurate. Took only a minute to switch barrels. My other favorite was a Colt .45 Combat Commander.

                Doug, I wont disagree with you on any point. I used to shoot very regularly, as a Cadet until I joined the army. After that my range time dropped to virtually zero. And ya I do miss it for the reasons stated, but I can't really justify the expense at the moment. Because like any tool like that, you will always want to try something new.... When I do get to shoot, I still remember how, and do very well for being very rusty.

                  Ok, here is my collection again. The new SP2022 is on the top. The bottom two are scheduled to be sold.

                  I also have to admit, I am a SIG guy, but Glock does make a very good pistol. Too many positives to list. I am on the fence sometimes.

                    Ken- No, I think I dodged that bullet. (pun intended) No much talk of that new law yet. Sounds interesting. Better get your guns now.

                        Shooting is a perishable skill which is why SEAL 6 used to fire more ammunition than the entire USMC did their first year of training.Most of us don't need that level of skill but it is nice to have.You might not ever have to shoot at terrs but bring down a buck,Rocky Mountain Sheep,elk or other critter that you spent beau-coup dollars on to get to means that you don't want to miss and waste the money spent to get there.The time spent hunting is NEVER wasted in my opinion.

                          Well.... the only "moving" target I ever shot at besides drop plates was with a M72, at a plywood target that chose to drop its mooring on one side and flap in the wind. Took that sucker out with "Extreme prejudice!" (actually it was a lucky shot - the wind blew the target back into the sights just as I fired the round.)

                          Hunting was never something that I did much of. Went out a few times with a neighbour when I turned 16, but other than lots of track signs we never found a darn thing. But I enjoyed the hiking and all else that went with it though.

                            Shooting is not THAT much of a perishable skill. All that spent ammo at tax payer expense is part of why Dick Marcinko spent a little time in the stockade. He far exceeded the point of diminishing returns.
