roxybisquaint: (derek more guns)
[personal profile] roxybisquaint
Several weeks ago, the man wanted to try out some different guns, so he rented a few at the range. I tried them too and fell in love with the Sig Sauer P229 .40 caliber. And... now I own one.



It's not exactly a cheap gun, so I'm sure I'll feel a twinge of regret when the credit card bill arrives. Right now, though, I'm in love with it. I just picked it up this evening at the gun shop/range and did some shooting. Despite being new and stiff, it shot beautifully. I did just as well with it as I do with the Springfield XDM 9mm that I've been shooting regularly for a year and a half. The Sig is noticeably heavier since it's a metal frame gun, but that also cuts down on recoil. So it's an even trade-off for me. It's got a nice feel to it and I also really like the sound of the .40 caliber.

Here's something fun:
The man and I went to a gun show recently and one of the dealers there remembered me from a purchase I made more than 15 years ago. He even knew what gun I'd bought! How freaky is that? And then he apologized for selling me such a crappy gun all those years ago. LOL. It was a Bersa .380 and compared to the guns we've bought in the last few years, it is pretty crappy. It was an okay first gun, though. I had to replace a spring in it a few years ago, but otherwise, I've never had a problem with it. It's just not all that accurate. With limited funds and a small hand, there weren't exactly a lot of choices then anyway. So I bought that Bersa and I loved it... until I got better guns :)
