Default I joined the club today (2 actually).

I sold my handguns a few years back, got married, had kids, yada yada. Years go by, and I finally convince the wife we needed some home protection.

So, first I dropped $270 on a perfect gen2 Glock 17. Then I started reading forums (first step of any obsession), and decided I needed a 1911.

Well, today I picked up my new Sig TacPac. Man, it is a smooth looking piece of engineering. I know 1911 purists aren't fans of the Sigs, but I totally dig it. And for $709 shipped, I can't complain. Can't wait to hurl some lead downrange with it!

Welcome and youll enjoy that sig immensely....i see only one problem-you wasted $270 on a lego piece when you can get 500 pieces for bout $15 at wal mart. Or saved the money for another sig.
