Love their wheel guns though, I have 2.
Hmmm... is this a good look? I think so. Fits my goofballness.
I'm honestly thinking of getting the P365 XL with 15 round mags as my night stand a bigger gun. I handled my friends with the 15 rounders and it's somehow still a smaller footprint than a G19. I don't know how SIG did it but they hit it out of the park with the P365 line.
I'm a converter.
If Uncle Arthur had not destroyed my right hand and wrist bones I would never have looked at another brand of gun for my Semi autos and would have remained a Glock Girl to my dying day. For revolvers I felt the same way about my S&W's.
Now all my 9mm Glocks are gone - two to Gramps and the rest sold. I still have my G42, but can't rack the slide anymore without using a Handiracker gizzie, and the trigger on that 42 always was a lot stiffer than any of my 9mm's.
I now have an assortment of brands in .380 and .22. With the reversible mag release on my Shield EZ and my M&P .22 compact, they tend to be used more than any of the others for range use, and especially in the few competitions I participate in anymore. Having to teach myself to become a left handed shooter made those two plain Jane guns particularly appealing.
But for sheer beauty, my two SIG P238's have to take first place. They shoot well too!
I still have two of my S&W revolvers, and I can even still shoot one of them with ONE trigger finger. The other requires the trigger fingers of both hands now but I won't part with it. It goes to my best female friend when I die. My Model 60 .357 went to Gramps, so it is still in the safe at our home. I can visit it if I wish.
Yes, even though I am very happy with my new assortment, I still miss my Glocks!
Getting old was not on my list of "things to do" in the Golden Years!
Talking to each other here is good, but taking action is better.
DarthBojangles, it is good you turned from the dark side. As a SIG owner you have started your journey. You must now enter the world of the 1911s to complete your transition to the light.
I carry a glock everyday at work. After I carried a Shield 2.0. Reciently sold the shield and purchased the Springfield 911 9mm. I carried 1911's for ten years in the military so the 911 fits my need.

Congratulations on the new Sig, DarthBojangles; they seem to be really well designed for carry. Glad to see you back!
Be careful of people who brag about who they are - a lion will never have to tell you who he's a lion.
