It's been too long.
My June wrist injury has thus far kept me from shooting most handguns for more than a few shots, so it's been kinda frustrating these last few months. But today, the wrist wasn't hurting, and my physical therapist told me to "go out and shoot and see how it feels".
Hey, that's great! Can I get a prescription for a thousand rounds of .40 and .45 ammo, and can we get my insurance to cover it as medically necessary?
Sadly, the answer was no. But I still went out, and I took my somewhat new (to me) Sig P229 out.the last one turned out to be Double-Action Only, a fact that I was unaware of when I bought it, so it was re-sold and the money set aside for one with the DA/SA trigger.
(There's nothing wrong with DAO pistols...they just aren't my thing.)
I'd been wanting a Sig for quite some time, but after getting it and comparing it to my Glock 23, I have to wonder why. They are both about the same size, although the Gock with it's polymer frame is half a pound lighter AND it holds an extra round in the magazine (13 vs. 12 for the Sig.)
