I recently read a blog by a well respected writer. In his blog he talked about what he shoots in competition and what he carries. He went on to state that he likes to carry the DA/SA because three times before he has had to pull his carry gun in defense of his life, and twice he has had to use it to hold suspects. He talks about the loss of fine motor skill being true, as I suspect it would be in a time of extreme durress. This has me to thinking that maybe I should reassess my own carry weapon. The author just ordered one of the new Sig P220 Compact models. It has a lot of the attributes of the 1911, it is .45 caliber, thin, has a beavertail, but also had the DA first shot. The first chance I get to look at one I will. I doubt that I will change my carry gun, as I REALLY like it, and not only is a change expensive, but I also have the cost of new leather, which I do not scrimp on. Here is a link to the author's blog: http://www.downrange.tv/artman2/publish/drtvarticles/86.shtml And here is the new Sig P220 Compact. Any thoughts on the matter?
