    Another 228 is on the way.

    Well, I did it again. I just bought another 228. This makes #6. I dont know why I keep buying them, but I do. Strange thing is, I've been carrying a Glock for the past 6 months, and its been treating me just fine.

    Is it a sickness? Is there a doc in the house?

    How do you treat them all fairly, and give them all the TLC they deserve? Poor things.....

    I guess they are like kids. You think you cannot love another one like you do the first, but once they get here you do.

    All but two are set up for long term storage. One is a project gun nearing completion, the other is a house gun. I keep finding them, and I cant turn them down.

    There's one NIB at the shop where Lima works that I've been drooling over, can the older Sigs be retrofitted with the SRT?

    Yes, you can never have to many.

    I have a love/hate thing going on with Glocks... I buy/sell/swap them all the time, but never get attached to them. They never have failed me or anything like that, and I'm happy to carry one. I guess I just get tired of them quickly.

    "I keep finding them" I did not think perps carried that quality of a gun.
