Default Back On The Horse

Howdy folks...

New to CalGuns, not new to the sport. I've been a lurker over the past few months and have been very impressed with the resources on this forum. In light of the current climate, I figured it was best to jump back into the fray and participate any way I can.

I haven't taken the opportunity over the past few years to go out to the range. I got sucked into other, much more expensive hobbies for a bit. But I have rearranged my priorities

One of my favorite pieces is a SigSauer P226 in .40. I bought it brand new when Sig was moving from stamped to the all-billet slides (jeez, I feel old). I've been shocked to read recently about the quality issues Sig has been having. Funny how times change.

At one point in my life, I relocated due to a career change and was couch surfing -- essentially living out of my car for a few months. While staying on a friend's floor (one of those trashy college houses with a bunch of dudes), they had a home-invasion robbery and apparently I was the only one who heard it. I came out to find 3 guys with the stereo and TV in hand. Professionals they were, they forgot to unplug all the electronics. In their hasty retreat, they quickly put all the booty down when the cords ran out. I got their license plate number and reported it to PD. Clowns were picked up a week or so later.

To this day, I still don't know what frightened them more -- the Sig -- or the angry, pasty white dude in his tighty-whiteys shouting obscenities.

Cheers.
