    I'm totally freaking tortured.

    The police are not there to protect you from crime, they are there to arrest the guy after the crime has been committed, assuming they find him. It is your responsibility to protect yourself and your family.

    Ignorance is a long way from stupid, but left unchecked, can get there real fast.

    OK, here it goes...

    I've been using the 228 as my main gun (carry, HD etc) for years now. So much so, I've purchased several as I ran across them at good prices over the years. I have a lot of 228 stuff. I've stuck to one gun though, leaving the others moth balled or occasionally selling for an obscene profit or to friends in need.

    My main 228 has been rebuilt 4 times already, and is in need of number 5. This time it needs sights too, possibly a rebarrel. (doubt it, but it is getting close) My magazines are worn, they need new springs too. This all adds up to a tidy sum. So I started looking. In the middle of all this, I get sent off to an armorers class I didn't particularly want to go too, but I went, as any knowledge is good knowledge. I started playing and tinkering... looking and figuring. Ergonomics are pretty spot on with this pistol. The class was boring, so I entertained myself and found ways to fix things I didn't like. Most of the things I didn't like in the very beginning of this guns history were already fixed from the factory. Gone was the two piece striker assembly. Gone was the cheesy plastic spring retention... hmm... this can be a nice pistol after all.

    So, I signed one out of the armory and off to the range I went. It had been a while since I fooled with one on the range. It was 2005 actually. I was involved in some of the initial testing before a major purchase was made. I had a lot of concerns about the some of the ticky tack structural and material choices. But again, most have been corrected. Those that are not, the aftermarket has done so. Anyway, time to shoot. Trigger still sucks compared to my trusty Sig, but thats OK, I know how to fix that. Ergo's are spot on, balance is near perfect, and low, low bore axis. Groups are quick and tight, and I scored really well, better than I had in a long time, in the shoot house. Dang...

    Went back to the office and called up the factory rep. Now I have a demo to do what I please with. Time to play. And play I did. Shoot, tear down, put back together, shoot some more, etc, etc. I've found that I actually like shooting this gun more than my Sig now. I can buy magazines for nearly half what Sig mags cost. Parts and cheaper too. Dang nabbit...

    Sixto went to M&P.

    Which model/caliber did you go with? I carry the full size M&P45 in a Galco combat master. I'm still a Glock guy but I love my M&P.

    That really shouldn't surprise anyone, other than Glockman, whose opinion on the (modern) M&P series is well known.

    Full size 9, but will probably add a 9c soon enough. I really like the 45, I shot steel and did well with a borrowed one, but I prefer the 9.

    I thought you would have just gone to fists. I mean, you're SIXTO! What the heck do you need a gun for?
