So, I picked up a 226 9mm in a trade awhile back and really enjoy the way it feels and shoots, so when an older West German 220 .45 was offered at a very good price came up, I got it also. It was kinda dirty and old looking, but after cleaning it up and putting about 100 rds thru it, I really like it. Then last week, a buddy wanted to sell his 220 carry and a Sparks VM II for it, I got that one too. Although they don't shoot like my 1911s, they are fun to shoot and so far, are very dependable. I would have no problem with these as carry pistols. With the right holster, they are just as comfortable to carry as my Kimber or Colt. Anyone else a Sig fan?
