    Got the Wife’s Sig Legion out of Layaway

    And I have to say, it’s killing me to have it here and not shoot it!

    Her birthday is not until Tuesday, but since she already knows about it ( she chose it and picked it out), I’m thinking I’ll give it to her tomorrow so she can enjoy it, and of course, I’ll get to shoot it too!

    That's really nice. I noticed the 238 Legion was not in the 2020 catalog, so it could be a timely purchase.

    Nice. I can only chalk this up to "great minds think alike." My wife's birthday is a week from Monday. She didn't want a gun though.

    I got her one of those "Legion" model LaZBoy loungers - that thing does everything but make your coffee.

    If I ever buy another pocket 380, it will be a Colt Mustang Pocketlite.
    I just think they are beautiful pocket carry guns.

    This is a 938. Are they not listed also?

    Sig messed up by making their grip too blocky.

    Yep. It does mess up the visual.

    In her quest to find a gun that fit her, the 1911ish micro 9’s was what she preferred, because she could manipulate the slide easy and reach the controls better without radically shifting her grip. Maybe the bigger grip gives one more control of the 9mm during recoil.

    They have the same grip shape on the .380.

    This is true. She also fired the 238, and really liked it, but in the end, I’m glad she went with the 9mm, if nothing else, for the price difference in the ammo:)

    Oh that's right. Was thinking 238 for some reason. The 938 Legion is listed for this year. Appears they dropped the 238 Legion.

    You are correct G-man. Visual, Yes. Actual grip, No. I find the design of the grip very helpful in handling the recoil. It actually fills the palm nice.
