Random Thots on the Sig P320
So, the Sig P320 must be on the OK list in Maryland because my local gun store has them for sale.
The 320 is the gun that won the Army slection process and is set to replace the Beretta. In case you have been living under a rock and don't know: It's a modular gun. The serial number part is the removable trigger group. This pops out of the frame. So you can swap frames easily. Or slides and barrel combinations. It's neat.
One of the things they use to sell the gun is an in-store display with the 3 different grip sizes for you to handle, small medium and large. I have to say, even the large isn't that large compared to the fat baseball bat that other Sig models seem to feel like in the grip. And the small feels downright concealable. Good idea, Sig, these displays. If you buy a gun and want a different grip you can order a new size sent in the mail for $40. I'm thinking there is potential for further customization in aftermarket shops. There could be as many P320 grips as there are 1911 grip panels.
I was prejudiced a bit against Sig before this. If I was rooting for anything it was for Smith and Wesson, but for no real rational reason. Mere nostalgia. But this will be fine. Part of that attitude is the apparent quality of the gun. The other is me shedding firearm prejudices as I learn more about shooting.
I am wondering how crazy the swappable barrels will be. How many different calibers will be possible. The standards, yes. But then what? My gun-geek mind boggles. .32 ACP just for poops and grins? Why not. 10mm for those people? Is that even possible? .38 Super? Ok...
I could get one. Lemme get better with my new 9mm before thinking about another pistol, with yet another OS, acquisition.
"You never select a shotgun as your primary anti-zombie firearm. It's great for onesy twosey, but zombies travel in hordes. The reload time is onerous, and the ammo, while effective, is heavy and bulky and short ranged."
Big Mistake for Her
If Ginsberg had let Scalia put the words "strict scrutiny" in Heller and Hillary said "Gun control is just not going to be a priority for my administration," Hillary would have been elected President.
