Cool. The guys on another thread convinced me I needed backup for a coordinated robbery by a death squad of illegal alien Mexican drug cartel gangsters so now I carry this brace of snaphaunces. And in a SHTF pinch I can strip off the silver furniture and sell it...

Try FOBUS; that's where I got my paddle holsters for these.

Do you know if they offer a button style retention holster for mine?

Sigmas are quite possibly the worst striker fired guns out there. Gave them a bad name as well as smith and wesson.

You and me both. I had a complete change in thinking a couple of months ago. I sold my Beretta 92 and my P229. To big and heavy, but both great pistols. The largest gun I own now is a XDMc, which I find a adequate for a range gun and concealment.

...I do have a Hi-Power, which I find large, but I own it as a collector piece.

I have a list.

Prefer autos over revolvers.

Prefer hammers over striker fire.

Prefer double action, single action, over DA only.

Prefer external safety over internal ones that do what exactly?

In a 1911 style gun, prefer the safety with the hammer down, rather than cocked and locked only. Won't carry cocked and locked, EVER ! (Example Star PD )

Prefer double or tripple stacked mags over single stack.

Prefer decocker over other safeties.

Prefer Snap-on over Tupperware.

Prefer 10 mm with jumbo jammed full magazines, which means I get saddled with a striker fire, hammerless, no safety, DA only, half Tupperware, half gun, just to get the round and capacity I want.

Had the male Tupperware flame thrower twenty years so far, holding up well.

Recently purchased a Beretta Storm Subcompact. Fun having with some of the features I lost years ago.

I have a sigma, swapped one spring and LOVE that gun. Carry it every day. Id take it over a glock ANY DAY. it's proven it's reliability and accuracy to me time and time again. There are a few things s&w could've done differently but for 300$ you can't buy a better full size

Well good to hear you are having luck with them. Myself and my friends bought some years ago and had nothing but problems.

I loved, still do, the look of a 1911 style beavertail grip safety, and the idea is still awesome, but I absolutely loathe the actual feel and functionality of it. It forces a very particular style of grip which I, personally don't enjoy or shoot well.

I would really like to try that of an XDs or AMT Backup, to get a feel for any differences. I've handled both in shops, but never shot, and that's where the real feel comes in.
Have you tried the Sig Sauer 220 elite which has the beaver tail but no grip safety. Very similar to a 1911.

You should see what Colt All American 2000's did to THEM, and I have two consecutively serialized!

Don't judge all striker fired weapons by the smegma.
