Someone made me an offer that I could not refuse today. We expended some of my ammo stash and swapped money for plastic. I have never had a real desire to own a plastic pistol, but I can't help but liking this, just a little....Used, but very lightly.

Welcome to the future. You'll be an operator in no time :)
Range toy. I will continue to carry my little old 8 shot compact 1911. However, I did like the idea of having the Trifecta of common military automatic handguns of the last 100 years, 1911, 92, and the Sig.

Have a Colt 1911 Model 70 Government Model and a Beretta 92FS: those were essentially the two issue handguns when I was in the Army. I personally have no interest in the Sig since I was long retired when they came out (also I'm not a Striker-fired pistol fan). The 1911 and 92FS bring back pleasant memories.

Also, no fan of the AR platform: Mini-14s rule! M1 Garand in JROTC, M14 in SROTC.

Once you step off the straight and narrow things start happening you did not plan for. Next will be an AR or AK.:rolleyes: The devil made me do it.

Since it's got a rail on it, the Club requires him to start hanging lasers, flashlights, the skulls of his enemies, etc. off the bottom of it.
I like to travel light; that is without light, laser or other bells and whistles. Maybe a small bayonet, but that is about all. ;)

Please let us know how well it shoots when you get a chance.
It is a good gun, no doubt. I have shot it and it did fine, no problems. Like all of my other modern guns, the gun is more accurate than I am. When I don't shoot well, and sometimes I don't, it is never because of the firearm. I was grouping respectably on the target at 50', so it could be a viable defensive weapon for me.

Being used to shooting 1911s, the bulk of, even the smaller, frame doesn't feel right, but if I shot it on a regular basis, I think I would get used to it quickly. As far as I am concerned, it is too big to carry concealed unless I was bundled up for cold weather. In any case, I have been completely happy carrying a 1911 for the last 30 years. Everything about carrying and shooting the type has become natural to me, my routine is hard-wired, so I am not looking to change.

Having over 20 rounds available is interesting, but when I am shooting targets, I usually only load five rounds, no matter what I am shooting. It keeps me from getting carried away with the fun of shooting and not paying attention to the basics.

I certainly did not need another semi-auto pistol, especially in 9MM, but I am way past the "need" stage of firearms, but it gives me joy to add to my modest collection. I would rather have a new pistol in the safe than another $500.00 in the bank.
