    The seduction begins

    Well, I took my first step over to the dark side, beginning the process of carrying an auto instead of a revolver. I bought the P226 today (pics below). It will be a while before I actually start carrying it, I need to fire a few hundred rounds thru it at least.

    It has some holster wear and the internals show noticable wear, so I figure the break-in period for this gun has been met, but I still need to get used to the feel and manual of arms.

    That's the hilt of my NCO sword sneaking into the pics.

    Welcome to the world of Sigs. They are a very good firearm in my opinion.

    Congratulations, enjoy shooting it.

    I hope (and think) you will like it.

    Despite the prob phase I had with mine last year, which was not the gun's fault - I just go on liking mine more and more.

    A bit of practice with decocker in particular and setting slide lock will soon have you familiar - then it's just a case of enough shooting to register the feel of DA and SA. I do a lot of draw and fire two shots - thus DA, then SA. Decock hammer - repeat!

    Two shots usually not as close as double SA but - with practice the discrepancy gets smaller and not enough to matter.

    Let us know how it performs for you.

    Congrats I think you'll like it. Like Chris said, work with the "controls", most of it is very intuitive. The only folks I've ever heard having any problems are lefthanded folks.

    Excellent choice. They're one of the absolute best on the market IMO. They kick the crap out of Beretta that's for sure.

    As a rightly, I've tested out Sig's controls left-handed and don't think it's a big deal. It's not hard to hit the decocker with your left index finger. It would be nice if the slide stop were ambi, but not a real big deal on a combat pistol.

    Well, I'm right handed and I just can't get the Sig controls into memory. I'm mostly a 1911 shooter and the Sig's decock and slide release screw me up EVERY TIME! It's a damned shame because I love the feel of the 229 and a 220 would be really nice (love that ACP). Seriously, I fumble with the controls every time I pick one up in the gunshop ... not a good omen for what would happen under stress in a life threatening situation! Sadly, I think that rules out the Sigs for me.

    Tank, how about some detail pics of that sabre?
