    For the occasion of my naturalization last Thursday, I decided to treat myself to a top-shelf handgun to commemorate my citizenship.

    A coworker made me a good deal on a SIG P220ST. The gun has had less than 200 rounds through it, comes with new night sights, three 8-rounders, one ten-rounder, and a lined Bianchi paddle holster...all for $750.

    This pistol is extremely well-fitted, and tighter than the door on a Swiss bank vault. The action is smooth as butter.

    It's a wee bit on the heavy side for an EDC carry gun, but it'll serve fine as a "Sundays & Social Events" gun and range toy. Most importantly, it'll be durable enough to serve as a shooter for many years to come, and remain a handsome reminder of the occasion.

    Congratulations on becoming a citizen of the greatest country in the world (IMO, of course).

    You know... while a citizenship commemorative pistol is a good idea, that only happens once a lifetime.

    What you need to do is Tax Return Commemorative Pistol. That would happen at least once a year. Um, er... that is, if you make it a habit of loaning money to the gubmint. :uhoh:

    U.S. citizenship = German commemorative gun?

    That either speaks to a keen sense of irony, or utter obliviousness. :D

    That's what I thought at first, but then again isn't the P220ST made in Newhampshire, and how many of us really have our roots in America.

    Myself, I have an awful lot of German in me.

    Congratulations, Marko Kloos

    BTW Where were you born, if you don't mind me asking?
