Default Sig 232 is coming

I just won an auction for a Sig 232 stainless .380. The last time at the range I shot my PPK/S and it beat the web of my hand terribly.
I think the larger grip of the Sig will be more comfortable to shoot. Goodbye Walther and hello Sig.

Those Sigs are surely nice pieces, hope it solves your problem.

Thank you. I took the Walther to the dealer and put it on consignment this afternoon. The Sig arrives
tomorrow and I'll start the paperwork tomorrow. An extra magazine has been ordered.

The Walther sold about 1/2 hour after the store opened this morning. The Sig arrived in the afternoon and included an extra magazine.
It is a bulkier pistol than the PPK/s and fits my hand much better.

I never could shoot well with a gun where the grip ended and left my pinky dangling. The PPK is better than some but not nearly as good as the Sig. That's a very good swap I my book! PPKs do have a cult following for some reason but I aint one of them.

Let us know how you like it!

I brought the Sig home this afternoon. This evening I walked into a dark room and checked the night sights. They work just fine.
To me it's amazing because after a while the radioactive material will degrade and not lightup anymore. This gun left the factory
in June 2008. I'll take it to the range on Sunday and see how it performs.

I once flipped a coin between a stainless P-232 and a .41 Blackhawk. Iíve since decided I lost, me and that Blackhawk canít seem to come to an understanding.

Iíve been told my hand is too big and the SIG will eat me alive. A chance Iíve wanted to take, Elizebeth Taylor never seemed to want for suitors either.


I need a kinder gentler machine gun

Well, darn it. Because of the virus and social distancing, the range is closed until further notice. Someday in the future I'll be able
to shoot this Sig, I hope.
