My wife is no longer interested in me for my CZ RAMI. She picked out a used Sig P239 with Hogue grips at the DC gun show this past weekend. Got a great deal, $399! This is her first gun, and now she is EXCITED about guns (as opposed to humouring me)! Went to the range yesterday, she LOVES it. After one magazine, she became much more comfy with the whole shooting thing. I guess this really shows the importance of finding the right gun.
Her P239 pros (vs. the rami): less recoil, fits her hand better, smoother trigger, easier to rack the slide
Her P239 cons (vs. the rami): likes rami sights and rami decocker better
1) Can anybody recommend a CCW holster she could try for the Sig P239, that is good for women. She is tall and long torso.
2) She is interested in getting Crimson Trace lasergrips. However, we heard that without the Hogue grips, the P239 is "a different gun." Anybody know how the CT's compare, shape-wise, versus Hogue?
She is getting better and better at the range. Meanwhile, I am becoming a source of constant embarassment for us. The RSO gave the "hold your fire" order twice on my account during our last two vists. Once, because I got hot brass stuck *under* my safety glasses, and in the act of trying to flick it out, I flung my glasses over the line. Then yesterday, I had a new rail-mount light on my CZ Phantom (from same gunshow), which when flying off and over the line on my 2nd magazine. Boy was I red faced. I need to do research--I fear I may have indavertently purchased an Airsoft-quality light.
