New to pistols, but not new to marksmanship. Used to shoot .22 rifles in high school (actually had a meet at West Point--- what an awesome experience), recurve archery as well but can't say that's practical. Looking to get back into shooting sports now.
I took a basic handgun class and demoed a lot of rental pistols at my range and fired a couple of hundred rounds. At the end of the road I was deciding between the Sig p226 and a G17--- Glock won. Gonna pick it up this weekend.
Welcome to the forum,i would have got a sig but my g22 was only 419 new with my LE discount and a sig would have cost 900 so the glock came home with me.But money wasn't all,i liked the simplicity of the glock.Have fun this weekend,let us no how you like it.
I really liked the feel of the 226 and I really like the double action / single action concept, but it's a hefty pistol compared to the Glock. Knowing I was going to do IDPA/USPSA shooting, I think that double action would do me in.
