The NSSF’sSHOT Business magazineis reporting that SIG Sauer is getting ready to introduce a brand new product line called theP320 Modular Pistol. The new SIG P320 will be astriker-fired, polymer framed handgun that is designed to easily change configurations to match the shooter’s hand and use.
A shooter can change the SIG P320 to different frame sizes, different hand sizes and even different calibers. Essentially, a single serial numbered fire control unit serves as the basis for the pistol. Different sized barrels, frames and magazines can then all be used with the pistol to make a semi-custom gun to match the shooter’s need.
Currently, the company has a modular pistol in the catalog: the P250. The P250 is a hammer-fired gun, while the new P320 is striker fired. While comparisons between the two guns will inevitably happen, a comparison of the new gun to Glock, Smith & Wesson’s M&P and Springfield Armory’s XD(M) is likely a better one.
What to do on Christmas Eve? Well, like millions of others I had to do some final shopping, so I did hit Wal Mart, which was not as crowded as I thought it might be, except for the toy department, which, or course, is where I needed to shop. Anyway, before the shopping, I decided to take an opportunity to visit the gun range, and I am glad I did. I decided to shoot the usual 100 rounds with my Sig p250, and shot further than the last time, when I went between 7-11 yards. I spread my shots from 9-15 yards, with over half from 12 yards or beyond, except for my last magazine, which I just fired as rapidly as I could from about 6 yards. Anyway, like last week, I went for as much speed as possible, gun up, on target, fire. I am really used to the double action trigger now, I have the reset point down, and it showed in my shooting.
Out of 100 rounds, I had 96 in the 8-10, not quite as good as my 98 out of 100 last time, but I put 87 of those in the 9-10 rings, better than last trip’s 75, and I had about 40 of those in the 10 circle, it is hard to tell exactly since a good portion of the 10 ring was gone. So, overall my best day of shooting. I was darned proud of myself. Then I came home and watched this guy, Max Michel who captains the Sig Sauer shooting team
At age 31, Max Michel is a legend within the world of competitive shooting. A three-time World Speed Shooting Champion, six-time USPSA National Champion, and three-time US National Steel Champion, Max is a dominant force in pistol shooting sports. Born and raised in New Orleans, LA Max began shooting when he was just 5 years old. In 1999 Max joined the famed USAMU’s Action Pistol Team and served in the U.S. Army for 10 years as an Army shooter and trainer. Max is also the current captain of the Team SIG SAUER shooting team. Today, Max is recognized worldwide as a top tier athlete and instructor.
18 shots, and two reloads in under 5 seconds? DAMN!
Here is the best advice for a new shooter
Cracker Barrel chose to stop selling some Duck Dynasty merchandise, that is fine, their business, their call, but their statement bothers my common sense.
The statement reads:
Cracker Barrel’s mission is Pleasing People. We operate within the ideals of fairness, mutual respect and equal treatment of all people. These ideals are the core of our corporate culture.
We continue to offer Duck Commander products in our stores.
We removed selected products which we were concerned might offend some of our guests while we evaluate the situation.
Mutual respect? What a silly thing to say. They made a decision that will please some folks and offend others. Had they chosen differently, they would have gotten similar results, just in reverse. I am really tired of this fake sensitivity. Cracker Barrel knew they would offend fans of Duck Dynasty by pulling merchandise, but, to Cracker Barrel, offending Christians, and those of us sick of bullies like GLAAD, is obviously preferable to offending publicity whores. In an effort not to offend, Cracker Barrel ends up offending many more people. I really wish these corporations would start realizing that appeasing emotional terrorists, yes, GLAAD, that would be you, is not a worthwhile aim.
And no, I man not going to boycott Cracker Barrel over this. First I have a strong distaste for boycotts no matter who does them. Secondly, I have been boycotting Cracker Barrel for years over their horrible food.
Bearing Arms brings us the sad tale of the Washington Post’s attempt to push the “guns are bad” line
The facts are conclusive.
Gun ownership is up tremendously. Young, urban, and female shooters are the fastest growing segments, ensuring that the next generation of gun rights advocates is not only expanding in numbers, but in spreading in geography and influence. Shooting is now an increasingly popular recreational and social pastime among family and friends.
The most popular firearms? Semi-automatic pistols, particularly those models of pistols most useful for concealed carry, are the fastest growing handgun segment. Modern sporting rifles—which are now available in more calibers, configurations, and price points than ever before—are the most popular rifles in the market. The AR-15 is the most common and popular centerfire rifle sold in the United States, year after year.
As gun ownership grows and spreads, violence crimes are down across the board. Rape, murder, armed robbery, assault and other violent crimes are on a decades-long decline. Gun accidents are down as well. Despite the endless dramatizations from the citizen control groups, you’re twice as likely to be killed by Bambi than a mass shooter.
And so perhaps it is very, very telling that on the eve of the Sandy Hook tragedy, the desperate citizen control cultists of the Washington Post are reduced to casting about for sob stories instead of making a scientific, mathematical, economic, or otherwise rational argument for citizen disarmament.
Go share your story of how you, or a friend used a gun to defend yourself, or how much fun you have at the range, let the Post have facts, they hate that!
Just one question about this tragedy. Why are we not hearing this message from Liberals?
Paul Walker would still be alive, were it not for the easy availability of super fast cars. Yes, the Porsche that Walker and his friend died in was very expensive, but any car can go fast enough to kill can’t it? Does anyone really need a car that goes over, say 55? No one needs a car that is that fast. Isn’t it time we demand action by the car makers? No car with a high-capacity engine should be allowed. Isn’t it time that Congress enact common sense car laws? Lower speed limits might have saved the lives of those two men, and if it saves just one life.
I am calling for Congress to pass the Paul Walker Law. It would restrict every car to no more than 55 mph. It would also mandate ban possession of any “assault vehicle” capable of more than a top speed of 55 mph. Anyone owning one of these weapons of mass destruction would have 90 days to turn in their vehicle, or face prosecution. They would be compensated with a voucher for a government-approved vehicle, complete with a Hope and Change bumper sticker or a lifetime pass on public transportation.
The bill would also set aside $600,000,000 (or more) for the development of a website, TradeYourCar.gov that would allow people to “easily” see their choices for their new government approved cars. The website will be developed by the Obama administration to ensure a rapid, and efficient car exchange experience.
I do not do my Rule 5 or links posts like I should anymore, but here you are, an overdue Link-A-Round. Click the links and be amazed at what you might see. some politics, some humor, some fun, and yes, just to antagonize Feminuts and overly Social Conservatives, some pics of hot women
Soylent Siberia NSFW!
I mentioned previously I purchased a new handgun, a Sig Sauer P250 .45 compact a couple of weeks ago. I have now been to the range twice, and after 200 rounds I can say I LOVE THIS GUN! It is accurate, the sights are super easy and once I really got the feel of the trigger action, it is a blast to shoot. It is the most accurate, and the easiest to field strip and clean, and reassemble of any gun I have ever owned. In short the gun is simple, and crafted to perform. It feels better in my hand every time I fire it.
In appreciation for the fine work Sig Arms does, I am making Sig Sauer the OFFICIAL gun maker of The Daley Gator. Maybe they will hire me to go over tp Switzerland one day to test fire their weapons? Yeah, I know a guy can dream though. Of fine arms, and hot Swiss gals!
