Greetings from Mrs. Borepatch. I went to the range today, by myself, and had a really good time. Sharp Shooters USA in Roswell Ga, great place, a little upscale, but not over the top. Now, as some of you may know, I am looking for a nice little carry piece, and I was itching to try some things out. I shot a Glock and a S&W M&P both in 9mm. Both guns were new even though they were rentals. They both had their good points, and I enjoyed shooting them, but I had some reservations about each. No question, I shot more accurately with the Glock, the magazine was far easier to load, and the sights were great. However, if I forgot to lock my wrists even once, the thing jammed. The S&W was really smooth and easy to handle, I loved the trigger, and I thought I was shooting well with it, until I compared it with the Glock, and it never jammed once. Unfortunately, the nice man at the range had to load the mag for me. It was a brand new one, and my weak little hands just couldn't do it more than the first time. It was awful, and I was having a terrible time with it. I know they have loaders, and I would have to get one if I owned this gun. Afterward, I went to a gun store and they had a used Sig p232 that I just couldn't keep from mooning over. I know the others might be great choices, but I really seem to have an emotional reaction to the little Sig. So my question to all of you out there is, for about $500, is there any real reason that I shouldn't get the Sig?
