¡Cuánto duele crecer, cuan hondo es el dolor de alzarse en puntillas y observar con temblores de angustia, esa cosa tremenda, que es la vida del hombre! - René Marqués
Been looking at a SIG 1911, this just makes the deal sweeter.
When you have to shoot, shoot. Don't talk.
"Don't forget, incoming fire has the right of way."
That's all fine and good, but I will NOT give my information out to a unknown party i.e. SSN etc. to redeem a rebate.
The kid making $8/hr at the main office is not gonna give 2 craps about a photocopy of my DD214 or military ID with my SSN on it.
I think they should ammend it to dealers upon visual confirmation of a retired ID card with no photocopy requirement would be a better way to go and place the burden on the dealer.
Just to "bend" this thread a little......
In this weeks Army Times there was a SIG ad, and basically if your Unit (members) would like, and can order a minimum of 25 weapons, SIG will throw in 3 mags, night sights, and engraving! The pistol in the paper had the patch of the 10th Mountain Div. engraved on it. I think the models offered under the program are the 220, 226, and 229.
Last year the EOD community had a commemorative run of 200 EOD 220s made to help raise money for the EOD Memorial Fund, but this was the first time I'd seen SIG advertise the service.
