After a shooting parctice at my local gunshop/range, I saw one of those previously-owned P-226 and I asked to check it out. Oh Lord, it felt goooood! I love the trigger pull on both double and single action, feels great in my hand and I could tell it is built with care and craftsmanship. And the price was $585 which I don't know if it was good or not but darn I was tempeted.
Me: "(insert pleasure sounds here) Oh man... great gun!"
Missus:" Don't even think about it."
Me: "I know, but it is a great gun."
Sales guy: "They are great guns and the price ain't bad."
Missus:" Don't even think about it. I mean it."
Me: "Yes dear I know. But Hon, this is Jack Bauer's gun."
Missus: "And when you make as much as Keiffer Sutherland you can get one."
So I was dragged, kicking and screaming out of the gun shop, but I do understand now the SIG thing.
