Ed Brown's latest offering, the Executive Target, has been submitted for California certification, in the all-blue configuration. It is expected to be certified in a month or two. See: http://www.edbrown.com/cgi-bin/start.cgi/customhandguns.htm

It seems to be loaded like a Valtro, but doesn't have front slide serrations.

They have to pay for the certification somehow. Lunde, are you waiting for the x-5 to be California certified and is that on Sigs list to get certified in California?

HEEYY!!! Some of the pics on that website have a distinct look to them.

gimmejr, you wrote:HEEYY!!! Some of the pics on that website have a distinct look to them. Yeah, Ed Brown uses some of my photos on their Kobra Carry and Executive Elite pages, by permission, of course. http://calguns.net/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

What's permission cost?
While I'm sure the glory is great, I'd be begging for a new pistol if my snapshots were as good as yours.

Permission costed nothing. For me, it was a great honor that Ed Brown (I worked with one of his sons, Travis) wanted to use my photos on their web site.

Still, it pisses me off to no end when my photos are used for commercial purposes without my permission. It's more of a courtesy thing.

AlumaGrips also uses a couple photos of mine, in their Photo Gallery for their Deluxe Checkered grips. Again, with my permission. Chris Lynch, its owner, is a fantastic gentlemen.

It's very unusual to see a model with these exact features, meaning the ambi-safety, big beavertail, memory-groove raised pad grip safety, adjustable sights, 25 lpi frontstrap checkering, and NO front cocking serrations.

I would really love to get one of these, this is what I've been waiting for. Darn that is a lot of dough, though. I'll have to sell some other first.

Why do you choose the DA/SA over the LEM trigger? I have no idea what the LEM is like.

I talked to a Sig rep at the grand opening of the Gun Room, in Elk Grove on the Friday of Memorial Day weekend. He said that the X-5 will not be Cali certified. Things may change, but I'll believe it when I see it on the list. The rep did have a Sig Mosquito on hand. Seemed well put togehter, but I'll let others be the beta testers to work out the kinks.

I had a chance to ring out my SK last week and after getting to know the LEM system, I'm wishing I bought my standard P2000 in LEM.

How do you like the LEM system Dr. Lund?

I must of missread something in another forum.

I had my two USP Compacts, a 357 and a 45, converted to LEM over a year ago, by HK. I chose the lightest variant, and also chose to ditch the control lever, which would serve only as a safety. I didn't see the point of a safety with the LEM trigger.

With that said, my P2000 V3 (SA/DA) shoots like a dream, and I consider it to be the finest 9mm combat pistol I own. I shoot it well no matter my condition, which speaks very highly of it. The P2000 trigger is different from those of the USP, and my limited experience with the P2000SK V2 (LEM) suggests that it is better than a USP LEM. It's the smoothness that makes the difference.

I think we're getting sidetracked here... http://calguns.net/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
