    Re: Just got my new sig...

    I actually have thigh rigs for both... but they are both left handed. I actually found it to be a decent option for when my back is out and I don't want to carry something on my waist. But I have to admit, I'm kind of a geardo to.

    One third of all Police in the US have Sig's. The others wish they had Sig's.

    Congrats Damon. You'll enjoy the heck out of yours.

    Congrats

    Congrats on the Sig. By the way Guys and Gals, Glocks rule. There are more Glocks in use than the rest.
    I like them all (Sig, 1911s .....)but I had to put in something for Glocks. Yes, I carry 2 Glocks G21 and G30. G21 is on my
    hip and the other is a secret.
    The important part is we all carry.

    Re: Just got my new sig...

    I've been eyeballing those sig 1911s. The best of both worlds for this 1911 and sig lover. Anyone have any experience with them?

    Yes, both Bill and I have and carry Sig 1911's. They shoot like a top end 1911 and have Sig's reliability. Bill has the C3 and I carry the Commander size.

    AND.....looking at the different gun for sale forums, there are more glocks than any other 2 brands combined.

    Gen 4 is not as popular as previous generations.

    Re: Just got my new sig...

    I'm beginning to believe I may be the only person on the planet to have had a bad experience with a Glock. I won't ever buy or shoot another one!

    If you trust one with your personal protection, I truly pray you never experience the failures I did!!

    Have had my P228 for twenty years and still love it. Now a Sig 1911 might have to be my next purchase.

    Re: Just got my new sig...

    I've seen some pretty narly stuff happen with glocks that have had internal work done. Not a huge deal, if you don't plan to have anything done. But I like my guns to be made out of metal please and thank you. Oh, and I'm trying a desantis IWB holster. It's ok, but not near as comfy as any of the ways that I open carry.

    Is the "Dig" a cheap Sig knock off?

    Just wondering, if they are good, they may become the new poor mans Sig.

    Re: Just got my new sig...

    Finally got a chance to shoot it today along with the AR15 I finally got around to finishing and my trusty 1911 for good measure. I gotta say, for a less than 4 inch barrel, it's very accurate. And it ate both cheap stuff and good quality. And man is it easy to shoot quickly. I love my 1911, and when I feel the need to drop bowling pins at 65 yards(no joke, two hand unsupported) the 1911 is deffinately the gun I'm reaching for. But for capacity, weight, and combat effectiveness, I may have a new favorite carry... I'll be shooting it a lot more in the next two days, so we shall see. Oh, and my AR has a slight problem... It's getting kinda boring. It was fun at first to ring the 250 yard gong at the tacoma sportsman's club, but the guys with the fancy ARs with the fancy scopes are starting to get mad at me with my carry handle gong song. Not to brag or anything...
