Gonna try something new
Well, after the training class the other weekend I got to thinking that I may need a different carry gun. You see several times during the shooting drills my glock would eject the spent casing but fail to strip off a new round.
I know this was due to my support thumb pressing against the slide and preventing it from going back all the way but try as I might to put my thumb elsewhere I always found myself returning to the same location with this malfunction (shooter induced) the result.
So, I thought well guaranteed this will happen if I ever need the weapon and then I'll get a click and not a bang on the second shot and. . .
So, instead of getting myself crazy over this I went out and bought a maybe new carry gun.
I say maybe just because I need to get some leather and put some more rounds through it and then carry it to see if it will work for me.
I also really like my Glock and don't know if I will feel right without it, but time will tell.
Anyway, here is a pic of the new addition next to my standard.
The Sig shoots great and I do love the trigger. Smoother and lighter than the regular DAK trigger.

I had trouble trying to convert to my custom BHP from a Glock. My high thumbs would drop the slide on the last round instead of locking back because I was riding the release.
It's better to get another quality gun thatn try to retrain yourself after years of conditioning.

Ahaha - looks familiar
Hope that works out for you because it will make a potentially excellent carry piece.

Nice looking piece! As a Glock 17 owner, I always enjoy seeing pics of prettier guns like that!

Congrats on the new purchase.
Slow is smooth, smooth is fast, fast is deadly.

I think if I did that she would be using it on me.

Now you have to start thinking about taking good care (more than normal) of your carry weapon. With the Glock, there is no such worry or thought.
I know that on bad weather days in Florida I reach for a Glock.
But again, sweet Sig!
Ask not what your country can do for you....

Wow Im jealous. That glock cant hold a candle to the sig. Thats one of the most beautiful sigs Ive seen in a while. Enjoy that new piece. Have a great day Sixgun.

Personally, I think its an ugly gun. But its a Sig and I love mine. I know it will shoot wonderfully for you. Go luck on the leather search as I am trying to find some myself.
Theres no such thing as owning to many guns.
