I went to the local gun store and checked out a few pistols. the AK store will be later this week.

I really liked the sig sauer. I checked out the 9mm but i am also open to a .40. I wouldn't mind a .45 but i dont think they make the polymer sig in .45. Whats your take on a .40 fullsize sig sauer as my primary home defense pistol?

The salesman showed me some F&N pistols which i thought were pretty nice although I liked the sig more.

By the way, I went and looked at the 1911's i could afford and i was unimpressed. They were extremely stiff, didn't fit my hand well at all, and the sights might as well have not been there!

Sig makes some of the best mass produced guns available. I have some, and consider them bulletproof. Never had any problems, and very accurate. I have never shot the polymer stuff, but have heard nothing but good about them. It would make a fine hd weapon. If you liked the way the sig felt, buy it. You will not regret it.

Also, the store I looked at had the Sig listed for around 550. I look online and they are in the 700's and 800's. What gives?

The Poly ones are cheaper compared to the all steel ones.

If your going to get a pistol for home defense you want all steel and you want .45 if it's an auto loader. So a Sig in .45 would be what I get...or a 9mm.

Honestly Sig is one of the 'wonder nines' at least to me. I don't like them though....hate the grip...having shot one but I know I'll hate the grip but I'd probably be accurate as hell with it....same thing with glocks. I hate them but I love them.

I'd either get a 9mm or an AK if that's what your dead set on...but you really need some surplus

Hell a Garand runs you 600 bucks from CMP...and you'd have some history right there!

Get a CZ75B if you are considering a 9mm. Next best thing to a BHP imo.

I believe that every collage student needs at least one fifty. IMHO I think single shots are nice. If you think you can't sneak of fifty into your dorm room, go with the 1911. Keep up the good work, Joe

Several polys avail. 2022,2009, 239, 250 (not sure about 250). Go to Bud's gun sales on the web. Great prices as of last Thurs. on polys. The traditional all metal models are quite a bit more expensive. I personally don't have a poly, but have heard good things about them. If I weren't a computer dummy, I'd post a link to Bud's.
