    On another note - how do you sub-compact .357Sig owners like that platform/caliber combo? I've only ever fired the .357Sig out of "compact" sized pistols (P229/G32) and found them to be loud and bright compared to 9mm/.40/.45. Snappy, too, but certainly not uncontrollable...how are they in a smaller platform?
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    Thanks, but I already got that covered

    I am hoping I can have the new gun before I go to Larry's Level 3 course on weekend of 8/18. And I can get some good trigger time in (second time I have taken that class)

    And then its force on force the next weekend (second time as well)

    Also if I did jinx myself and something does happen, the training comes before the new pistol.

    Very good question!!! I would really like some input on this from anyone who knows!

    And, isn't there going to be a similar issue with the snubby .357Mag?

    Thanks

    I voted for the Glock. Great capacity in a reliable and concealable package.

    It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!
    You cannot choose the conditions for a gunfight, so train in all conditions!

    I voted for the Nightstalker. Strong as they come and looks AWSOME in the Black T!!! Seriously though it would make for a great BUG or primary when deeper concealment is called for.
