If 9X9 = 81, why is it I get two nines, and they multiply into a .45?

    Yes, I officially have the sickness...or Signess, however you want to define it.

    After getting a baby 9mm, and then a classic 9mm, the fucking guy I got the P226 from made me an offer I couldn't refuse; I am now officially the proud owner of one of America's finest hand weapons, in the caliber that is truly American. I am the proud owner of a Sig Sauer half German/half New Englander P220...a nearly perfect weapon! It's DA/SA, and I may get aluminum grips for it, but am almost definitely getting an SRT...Short Reset Trigger. By the time you let up on the trigger after the first DA pull, the SRT gives you an audible click letting you know the next round is ready to be fired. In a "stressful situation," the SRT can save your life, and the kit is only @ $50 to install...easy to do for me. I also like that it has a rail on the front, so I can attach a high intensity light (with or without a laser sight), so it'll make for a great bedside self-defense weapon. It helps to be able to see exactly what it is you're shooting at, so you don't fuck-up and shoot a friendly. The laser works as a rather nice deterrent, so hopefully you wouldn't need to fire the weapon at all. Having a blue or red dot painted on one's chest will often make an intruder downright compliant, and we can just wait together for the cops to arrive.

    I promise this is the final weapon purchase this year though, except perhaps for a Ruger 10/22 rifle for the little man for Christmas! I need to get that kid away from video games, and out of the house more, and I believe a nice .22 rifle would do the trick! Plus, I want some company at the range...and to teach the boy a little responsibility! He will NEVER have access to the rifle while I'm not around...unless he can break into a hidden safe!

    Anyways, the P226 I bought for cheap had 100 rounds through her, and is fucking cherry, which is rare for a nearly 30 year-old weapon. The p220 was shot a little more, but only an additional 200 rounds, on a weapon that can easily shoot 20,000 cartridges without anything more than a few new springs! I paid more for the P220, despite the fact the P226 is worth at least twice as much, but again...both were awesome deals!

    Here's a couple pics from a nearly 10 year-old gun that still looks new:

    You're a technonerd...don't tell me you can't read that shit in 60 seconds.

    Since when did feigning being a moron become something to celebrate?

    I should have believed you...WTF is this California bullshit I keep hearing about, with the laws changing 1/1/15? And blocking-off 15 round mags so they only fit 10? That is some bullshit right there.

    Here's the @ 30 year-old German P226.

    I paid under a geezel for both, including 10 original Sig mags...four-15s and six-8s.

    Like I said...he made me an offer I couldn't refuse!

    I saw a picture of a 1906 Colt "pocket pistol"...it looked pretty sweet, especially for its age.

    If anyone's in the market, there are some awesome deals on the auction sites these days...peeps must need money for Christmas.

    I just got really lucky...friend of a friend thing.
