my first choice

At the risk of disrespecting greasypaws recomendation of which gun to get, I decided on this awesome Sig P226, It felt like it was made to fit in my fat hands. And very easy to shoot, no manual safety and all. The glocks just felt too fat in my hand and would jump around when I squeezed off a round. Damn, I think I'm moving back to Tenn. after hearing "Basil Marceaux's" run for gov. speech.

everytime i go to my local gun store, i always stop by and ask them if i can see the sig 226 in .357, ive had plenty experience with that round and im thinking instead of buying a conversion barrel for my glock 23, ill just buy the sig.

i grew up on 1911's and smith and wessons, but when is started to own fireamrs, my first handgun was also a glock 21, the grip was too big for me, i then switched to a glock 32 and also bought a glock 19, i now have a glock 23 and thinking of having a .357 counterpart to it.

i hear ya sarge

before i worked at the place i am now(a deli) i used to be a porter in the docks here in the bad side of town, i would carry two 13 round mags on my ankle and have my g23 in an inside the waistband holster, but nowadays considering i am cooked up inside a meat factory, i dont even bring it no more, i just carry a pocket knife, i really like the mid size glocks and im gonna make sure ill always own one, and considering that my state screwed me over by overpricing assault rifles, i might as well just get a sig.

Check out those sites.......their prices are well under 2000........depends on what you exactly are looking for.Sling Point has some stuff that is made locally ........checked them out one day in their store not bad looking weapons......Of course it can look good not perform......but you should check out both sites.Take care I'm out for the night.
