    SIG TACOPS 9MM W/4-20rd mags.Unusually long beaver tail for a SIG.Siglite rear night sights,truglo tritium fiber optic front sight that stands out like a neon sign.Nitron finish.I immediately noticed a pretty short reset on the trigger.SA seemed a little stiff at 1st,but,seemed to go away quickly.Looong DA pull.The magwell is a nice option.I don't really do tactical reloads,etc,but,after doing a few speed load drills it went smoothly for me.My friend and i put about 4 boxes through it ringing 12"x12" steel at 10 yards and out.We both agreed it was a piece of cake.I didn't have any of the FTF issues with these mags that i've read about(knock wood).

    Pic right out of the case.Anybody have any experience with the SIG grease they're sending out?

    Springfield Armory XD-9,Sub compact.This filled a nitch i wanted in the most 9mm rounds i could get in a short package.Excluding my G26 w/33rd stick.13 & 16 rd mags.Once these things loosen up they're neat little guns.I say little,but,they're still blocky up top which is why i never really bonded with my full size XD.Trigger is meh,but,i don't care.Seems and feels reliable.Breaks sharply.

    Right out of the case.

    Very nice!


    Dis-assemble and clean the factory lube-goo out of the Sig mags. I run a silicone rag through after. I run 20 rounders with my X5

    I like that Sig. I contemplated buying one before I got my FNX-45T, but the 45 won out in the end. I think I may get around to getting the stainless elite P226 IF I get a 9mm again.

    Those XDs are nice, I'm thinking my daughter needs one. ;)

    A couple more.

    BCM MOD 0 16",came with MOD 4 BCM charging handle,BCM's newest stock,MAGPUL MOE hand guard.With a 30 rd mag this thing is LIGHT! I threw a DD rear sight on it and love it.If you're looking for a light weight carbine,check them out.

    FNH 20" A2,I've wanted an A2 style 20" AR for a long time.The only thing that made me pick this over the Colt and the Bushy is the carry handle on the FNH is removable.It has a flat top upper if you want to mount an optic.Experimenting with different optics now.Damned accurate though.I swiss cheesed a shoe box with iron sights at a smidge over 200 yds.For my eyes,that's Jerry Miculek shooting.

    I have the Sig 225. Same as the 226 but with a single stack, which makes the grip a bit easier for me.
    Made in W. Germany, came with 3 mags.

    Be kind of careful with the nitron coating if you care about that kind of stuff, a slight safe rub gave my 226 Extreme a little beauty mark. I was a little shocked that's all it took. It's no biggie to me, I shoot my pistols, but I would have figured that finish for all the bragging they do about it to be a bit tougher.

    Love the A2 look Craig. :aok

    I had an XD40 sub-compact. Loved it. An absolute cannon chambered in .40. Granted, I didn't like the trigger, and I didn't like the sights but it was a blast to put rounds through.
