I haven’t bought a new firearm in a while. Like since before I got laid off in August 2013.
Add to this that I’ve been looking for a compact/subcompact 9mm pistol to supplement the carry arsenal.
For the longest time I wanted a Springfield EMP, but I’m still hearing about QC issues and continuing “jammomatic” status with them, so I kept putting it off.
After accidentally bumping into some comparisons on the intarwebz, looking up some reviews, and going into the local large chain retailer for a grope, I decided on which small nine is my “new hotness”.
Christmas is coming up, and my birthday shortly thereafter. I’ve been a very good boy and know a place with a decent layaway program in my area.
So, sometime after the first of the year I’ll be putting some cash down o a Sig P320 Compact.
For reasons I still cannot bring to the surface, I really like the idea of the serial numbered part being the trigger group, that is interchangeable between grip shells. If I could buy just the trigger group, I’d probably buy two and just have the rest of the parts delivered to my hizzie.
