Range trip in the morning and breakfast will be 115gr. brass!

You can't go wrong with a Sig and that one's a beauty. Lots of luck with it.

Default Here's mine

I have had to many guns bought and sold but never had a Sig. Last year I saw a picture of this one and had never seen one like it before. I was looking for "the most accurate" 9mm I could get and this Sig 226 X5 is probably it. So I bought it. It is crazy expensive but I think you get what you pay for. I like it a lot. It can shoot better than I can. There is another post here that shows one with a longer barrel. I think I like that one too (but I'm happy to keep the one I have).

Please stop showing pictures of all these 226's. My son was issued one in the PD and I have my old 228, but showing these new 226's is going to force this old fart into buying one too and my wife will kill me.

Yeah those are awsome pistols. The Sig X series are the best of what they do.

My first Sig (and only), the P250 compact 40sw. This gun won't win any beauty contest but it does what I expect it to be, reliable. DAO and the long trigger is the safety, no more. In case of SD, grab and squeeze.

Well...Wow!
1st shot with the new Sig and plugged the hostage taker in the forehead on a double silhouette at 15yds...not marksman, but the pistol points just right! 150 rounds of rem new brass 115gr without a glitch. Very balanced and smooth. Sights are great on the Extreme as well, visibly glowing in the range bag as I opened it up...

Comparison...or not, was my wife's Sigma 9mm. She loves her gun and I am glad she does...

My 1911 will certainly take it personally if I leave her in the safe on the next trip, but I know I will not be buying as much .45 ammo as I used to!

Other mentionables:
-Walther P22 performed flawlessly, as usual, on assorted 40gr .22 longs...not sure why so many hate that little pistol...
-1st time at the range for my Heritage .22 western revolver and we were both VERY impressed with the gun. Probably the most pleasant and rewarding (accurate as hell) .22 I own. Maybe I am gaining an affinity for revolvers after all these years...
