    Went to the gun show...came home with this

    My B-day was Friday and it just happened the gun show was this weekend so I told my wife (the chief financial officer of the house) she should take me. I thought I wanted a Kahr P9 but ended coming home with a Sig Sauer P250c. I was looking for something light but didn't like how small the grip of the Kahr was and the Sig just felt so right. I like that I can swap frames and calibers (whenever they become available) to .357 .40 and .45. Picked up an extra mag now I'm looking for an IWB holster for it. I'll shoot it tomorrow and post an update.
    Thanks,
    Rock

    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

    Congrats on the new P250c! I have really enjoyed mine. It has been 100% through +/-2500 rounds.

    FWIW, CompTac offers a MTAC Minotaur for the P250.

    I found them when searching online for a holster last night, I wanted to try one for my 1911 anyway so I'll just pick up an extra body for the 1911 and have two holsters in one. Do you have one?

    I do have a MTAC. Currently carrying my Sig P239. The MTAC is a great holster IMO.

    I have a body for the P250 and a Glock 19 on order. Should be here tomorrow.

    I have considered the 250 in the past,the problem is lots of guns i like with small cash flow

    OK here's the obligatory pics, the target has approx 75 rds on it from both my wife and I at the 9 yd line including a few mags of double taps. Of course all the ones in the center are mine The ones at around 9 O'clock are the last mag, by then my shoulder was really bothering me (I had shoulder surgery a few weeks ago and this was the first time shooting since then).

    We put 150 rds through it (WWB from wally world) and I had 3 failure to fires, all 3 went bang when I pulled the trigger again so I'm not sure if it was the ammo or if I had a light primer strike, will have to keep an eye on that but the gun is plenty accurate and comfortable. Cleaning the thing was a breeze

    I think I may need to pick up a small frame for my wife and one of the conversion kits later. I'll also probably order the MTAC and hopefully by the time that comes in I'll have more rounds through it and worked out

    Thumbs up Mtac

    Thumbs Up for the Mtac.

    Not too $$$, quick turnaround time, good design, and good product. I like the kydex/leather hybrid.

    Only thing I don't like about it is the part on the holster where the Clips screw in. The female part where the Clips screw in is a piece of thin metal. When starting to thread the screw you have to push kind of hard on the clip and rubber spacer making it not overly simple to get the screw in. It feels like you could easily strip the threads if you aren't very very careful. You really have to make sure the screw is in the right position before you put much force towards screwing it in.

    my carry equip = Mtac, Glock 30, Beltman 1.5" horsehide. I love the combo.
