Default Missed out on BF, but got these bad boys instead!

Was late on a few deals for BF, but was lucky to get in on a few rares I've been eye balling for a while: Sig P210A Target, Sig P320 X-5, G17 Gen5, G17 RTF2 and another Shadow 2.

The P210 is really nice - super tight, but silky smooth when you rack it.
Target grips feel really good in the hands. Interesting the takedown is just like CZ, but w/o the notch (I miss it). Took me sometime to put it back together.
I know its single-stack, but was hoping Sig would have had an extended 10 round mag option (regular is 8). I can't wait to test it out!!!

Honestly, I think the G17 RTF2 feels better than the Gen4/5 texture. Kinda weird I don't notice the finger grooves as much w/ this RTF2 than I do w/ the Gen 3/4.
The Gen5 trigger is probably best stock out of the other Gen2-4 glocks I have.

You have a great selection! The Sigs! In fact all are great. I really like the heavier in hand handguns, and longer like the X-5 series.
The HK Mark 23 is another I like. The heavier handguns that feel substantial strike a chord that resonates well. 1911s have this effect on me. And prefer the G17 over 19/26. One day will seek a G35 or G40 Glock, as long slides

That being said, fawn over LCPs and Seecamps as well.

So many it never gets old. Congratulations on your recent pickups. Rare gems especially in CA.

Congrats on the P210A! If it had a larger magazine, it would've been perfect!

No comments on the P320 X5?

Sorry but those 2 Glocks just don't deserve to be in the same company as the others. Congrats on some nice shooters. Obviously you aren't living in the sad state we call California. But then again, I could be wrong and you spent a lot more money to acquire these.

Very nice pistolas!

Been wanting to handle a Sig P320 X5 and P210. Where in the Bay Area do they have them in stock?

You know, I was actually more hyped for the P320 X5 than I was about the P210A. I actually shot it the other day and wasn't too impressed by it. I was expecting the flat trigger to be better than regular (have a regular P320) and I wasn't wowed by it. I guess I was expecting something similiar to my Legion SAO flat trigger vs. regular P226.

Have you shot the P210A? That thing is way smoother than the P226 SAO Legion, even after mine has been worked on by the Sig Armorer. Not to say that Robert did a bad job on mine (in fact, he did an awesome job!), but the P210A is just made way better from the factory. I'd love to compare the P210A with the German or Swiss made P210 some day.

You live in CA? Then it must've taken you more than a few weeks to get all five guns, as roster exempt person? Good job getting those guns in CA!

I'm just envious. Congrats. I handled a P320 X5 and was totally not impressed. I expected the trigger to be much better like the German made X5's. Would love to hear your thoughts of the Shadow 2 and P210-A after you take those bad boys out.

As a CZ fan, I would hate to admit this. The P210A could match my Cajunized S2 if it had a larger magazine capacity!
