SiG P522 ... and its screaming to be SBR'd

I'm really not a "kid" anymore ... but I haven't grown up yet either!

If you really want something you'll find a way ...
... if you don't you'll find an excuse.

A Taurus pt940 (the "nickel plated sissy pistol" one but in the .40 S&W variety) Pic below is not mine, but that is the model and trim I bought. It was my first taurus which I bought with a little apprehension given a lot of what I heard about Taurus, but I've had zero problems with the gun. It's had about 500 rounds put through it so far of various types and brands without a single hiccup or failure.

A month ago I picked up an XD c 45 that was stolen in February from the police evidence room. I didn't want to keep it, so I went to my LGS and Traded it on a Kimber UC II.

The target represents the first 28 rounds I shot at ten yards. As you can see I started out high and slightly left, but began adjusting after ten rounds or so. I can't explain the little guy low and left.

I couldn't resist this on a local forum, the price was right and ended up with a hipoint 9mm carbine. I'm happy with it so far and the small PA microdot is perfect for it.

I don't think I've bought it yet.

My most recent purchase is a little NAA .22 magnum pocket rocket. Useful for puttering around the house or taking out the trash and for fighting my way to my major caliber guns.
