Which Sig?

The P229R

or the P229 Elite Stainless

I already have P229R in .40 and love it but I've been debating whether or not it's worth get the stainless one.

First thing that would go if I bought that gun. Sig has wide grips as it is. The wood grips are even wider, and I don't like the way they feel. But they DO look good.

For our anniversary, Skeeter got me some really nice wood grips for my S&W. They feel as good as they look.

I like the stainless. I have a S&W 4013TSW. It is stainless and I have really liked it. I need some wood grips though. Those grips look awesome.

I have always liked the blacked out look, simply because of not blinding your adversaries, before shooting them. Or giving away your position, by the sun reflecting off your gun............I know, I watched too many old westerns...........

As already suggested, get the Nitron finish, with wood grips............or just get the one YOU want............

I'm a sucker for stainless, but it's 9oz heavier. And I don't like Sigs wood grips, as I said they are too wide. I was looking for wood grips to put on my nitron Sig but they don't feel right. So even if I got the stainless I would switch out the grips first thing.

^^ Ditto, what he said! ^^ Never been a big fan of much in stainless, shows every little fingerprint & smudge! With 2 toddlers, that is a real world concern, although, I guess it shouldn't matter in the selection of a handgun, just more as a general rule!

Ooops, sorry, Rip. We went to a gunshow and did some other stuff and I forgot to take the pic. Skeeter said he'll remind me to take a good picture tomorrow.

Here's my S&W m10 k-frame with 158 grain FMJ semi-wadecutter .38 special that we reloaded last weekend. We reloaded about 150 rounds of the .38 sp (and over 100 rounds of 30-30).

Cabela's has a Lee anniversary reloading press kit with everything you'll need except the dies, shells, powder and bullets. It's what we use and it does a good job. Oh, yeah, it's $70. That's not bad for a complete kit.

We saved enough on 30-30 alone to more than pay for all the equipment we got.

.05 shells
.12 powder
.02 primer
.15 bullets
.34 per round

$6.80 per 20

$34 per 100

$340 per 1000

We were paying between $10 and $15 a box for 30-30



Amy also did 50 rounds with one of these last night.
http://www.cabelas.com/prod-1/0032406215925a.shtml

It's a little slower but you can carry everything you need in a small tool box so you can reload when ever you're bored.
$26 for the press kit and $15 to $20 for a set of dies and you're all set.

I really need to start reloading again. 300 win mag is pricey and am running low on reloads.

Do you have a press?

This hand press will build up your pectoral muscles while reloading you ammo.

Have it all including the vibrating brass cleaner. I have the dies for 45, 300 win mag, 9mm, 357 sig, 38 special, and 40 smith. Just got out of the loop for a while when corperate America divorered what little free time I had. Now that we are out of the city and back in the country I might have to take up a few of my old hobbies.
