New Sig P320 at last
#1
Well, I headed out early this morning, got to Cabela's at about 9:45... There were three reps standing at the counter waiting for a customer. One locked eyes on me as I purposefully strode up to the counter. Pleasantries were quickly exchanged, and I presented my drivers license and said, "The Sig Sauer P320 Full Size in .40 caliber, please!" He looked at me for a moment and said "I'm not familiar with that."

"You have one in the case right there," I pointed at it, "and four brand new ones in the back." He had a bit of a chagrin, and said "Well, I love starting the day with a customer who knows exactly what they want!"

He was back with the gun box in about 5 minutes, we unboxed and examined the pistol, and I said "I'll take it." Over to the computers to fill out our forms (which, by the way, were slightly more complicated than buying a fresh vegetable or a book, Mr Obama...), and then I checked out some new hot weather waterproof hiking shoes while the background checks were run. As I completed the forms, I observed the gun counter was absolutely swamped with customers. Whew!

A polite call to my cell phone about 25 minutes later had me returning to the firearms checkout with a couple of boxes of .40 for plinking, and some self defense rounds for... well, self defense, of course. Also picked up some 5.56, and .45. Alas, no shoes, as the ones I was interested in don't come in half sizes (12 too tight, 13 too long). Checkout was about 5 minutes, and since I was already OCing (well, visible but IWB Kimber) I was allowed to carry my gun out without an escort. Total turnaround from start to finish was about 35 minutes.

So, I've played around with the pistol a bit. Fully loaded it feels lighter than my .45 Commander. The muzzle seems very menacing with the full length rails. The night sights are very easy to pick up. The trigger is amazing at this price point, and reset is so minimal but you definitely know it has. The mags drop freely, the slide is easily workable for my wife, and the pistol feels extremely balanced. I'll get to a breakdown and thorough cleaning tomorrow. Sig nicely included some high speed/low drag synthetic gun grease, and a coupon for a cleaning pack (degreaser, synth grease, and synth oil for hard to reach surfaces.

The package came with two mags and a plastic paddle holster with adjustable tension, but I ordered a hybrid already. Sig says the P320 will fit any P250 holster. As a note, this is a large gun in its current configuration, and I may order the compact set first before a caliber change.

Now I just need to find some time to go shoot it.

Ammunition, it's the new lead bullion. Buy it cheap and stack it deep.

Dude, are you trying to spend my money for me or WHAT? Big Grin

Anything Sig is pure sex. That 320 is no different. Just so happens that I like brunettes and not blondes.

I do like that 320 btw!

I picked up a sig p320 carry (3.9" barrel, 17 round full sized grip). I love it. It feels good in my hand, the trigger is really great, and I like the "modular" concept. The one thing I noticed was I was a lot more accurate shooting 124 grain +p federal HSTs than with 115 grain FMJs. I have a ton of 115 FMJs, but I think the next bulk ammo purchase I do for 9mm will be 124 grain FMJs. My groups were cut in half by the HSTs.
