ahhhh, rememeber that thing called the lowest bidder..who do we think supplies the big army (read general military) with there weaponry....most army units the only handgun they will see will be the piece of shit beretta 92fs...junk in the sand and the miltary issue 9mm ammo is shit too...the one time i had to use that POS it ended up empty and i really wasnt comfortable till my long rifle became reaquianted with my hands....very quickly had my old man buy and send me a sig 226 (40 cal) and some corbon ammo so i could have a reliable sidearm...

however if PP is a fan of firearms..on the civilian side of his life, that is where i would seek his advice as there is a good chance he has ahndles more firearms ....

PP-correct me if i am offbase..as i highly doubt much has changed miliatirly in weaponry since i got out...

as for the topic...my weapon of choice is a sig 220 full size...i carry it just about everywhere.....love it....also a big fan of kimbers..but the sig sits better in my hand...and although i dont use the double action function (my first shot is always single action) i like having it as a possible approach....should i not roll the hammer right when the time comes....
