This thread needs more pictures. And I have a couple excuses to post them.
So, do you guys remember my Kriss Vector? I sold it and used the funds to pick up one of these:
Yeah, I know, I know... I have a problem. But bullpups are just so... spiffy! I can quit whenever I want, really. Anyhow, it points like a dream and with enough rounds through it, it will stop smoking as the preservative burns off.
The backup sights are way off, but I can live with it.
No sooner had I purchased the Tavor, then the local gun store had a Sig Sauer day. A friend and I showed up, hoping to get in on their "buy one get one free" offer, but that was limited to the first 4 people. He was 4. I was 5. Oh well.
I'm not normally a Sig fan, as I think they're too heavy and the whole DA/SA trigger thing turns me off. What can I say, I learned on Glocks and Walthers. However... I could get behind a single action trigger. And I never have owned a 1911 before. And it was on sale...
This one is taking some getting used to. I have developed a slight flinch when I shoot it. I think it's the unfamiliarity that is causing it. The cure, naturally, is more range time. The trigger is awesome and I think I'm a little afraid of it. It's heavy, but lordy does it put holes in tight little groups. Alas, it really hates my handloads so it only eats factory ammunition for a while. I'm going to have to figure that one out one of these days.
Also, the grip is tearing up my hand a little. After a couple hundred rounds, it is leaving red areas right where the front sides of the grip reach my palms.
If there is one thing a remote-controlled, silent and unseeable surveillance/killing machine needs, it’s more whimsy. -- Marcus
