Where the fuck have I been?
At first I was pissed off at bad stuff happening to me, then I just realized the world was stuck, like a record skipping.
It’s all the same shit over and over, I’m waiting for the next turn of the wheel before I get back into blogging. I mean, it’s all just the same shit over and over again. AQ (Saudi Arabia) V Hezbollah (Iran) in Syria, Obama flouting the law with the GOP fecklessly whining about it, the economy fucked, allies pissed at us, enemies laughing, what’s more to say?
I want to post this in reply to DPUD’s post about the LCP, I wrote it in the comments but I figured I should include a picture and I need the dashboard here to figure out how to do that.
So here goes
(It took a bunch of takes to get the pic just as the bullet was leaving the barrel)
I got a Sig SC (sub-compact) 250, it’s fucking awesome.It cost mid-$400s with deluxe-type, tritium night sights.
It’s somewhat bigger than the LCP and the rest of the .380s or even 9mm pocket stuff, but .45ACP.
It’s just about the size of my hand, so still pretty small.
With a Blackhawk, inside the belt, holster, you can’t even see I’m carrying. I even put it in the cargo pocket on my cargo shorts occasionally.
The grip is small, my pinky hangs off, but that’s the classy way to drink tea so I figure, it’s the classy way to shoot. I’m sure I could get mag-extenders to fit my pinky, but it fires so smoothly so two fingers are enough.
I’m not used to double-action only, I always fire handguns in single-action mode, so that took some practice, but not much. I also should have done that (practiced double-action firing) long ago, so it’s actually helpful.
I almost bought one of those LCPs or maybe an LC9, I like the Ruger best for pocket .380s and 9s. Notice the rounded edges on it, if you’re sticking a gun in your pocket you don’t want sharp edges catching on stuff, but I kept delaying it until I saw the 250SC and you can’t argue with .45ACP.
Well you can, but you’ll lose.
It’s also convertible to 9mm and .40 S&W, I don’t know if I’ll get he conversions, but it’s there. You can buy it in any of the three calibers, but if you can get .45ACP, why would you get 9mm? It’s not as if the cost is all that different right now. $38 for 50 vs $32.
I’m pretty well disgusted with Beretta.
I got the Storm pistol and hated it. I mean, I took it shooting once and never again, I ended up selling it.
It was sloppy.
The sights sucked and the action was loose. I liked the 14 round mags (.40 S&W), but that’s about it.
I’ve become a Sig guy, of course, I don’t see any more black, scary pistols in my future so it’s moot,
but that’s my advice for people asking.
Now, since I notice there’s been a decided lack of hottasery since I’ve posted, hottassery.
