M17 Pistol & Camera Test

Doc and I were out at the range getting some things done.  Nothing serious. Just for fun.  Lite range maintenance. Pistol practice. Shooting his new US Army M17 (P320). Testing a new camera.  These are some video outtakes from that testing.    Sincerely,  Marky www.John1911.com “Shooting Guns & Having Fun”

Not Everything That Glitters is Gold

While at the Indy NRA Show, I happened upon Bruce Gray’s booth. Grayguns has been around for quite a while and has a stellar reputation.  When I saw he had a SIG P320 X-Frame gun on the table, I was legitimately excited. Having never fired a 320 (that I recall anyway), playing with an X-Frame version at a local gun …

Sig P320 X-Carry

Like many of you, I am curious about the P320s since they were picked up as the service pistol by the US Military. Beyond that, I haven’t payed them too much mind. Haven’t even shot a 320 as of this writing. As for why? There are so many variants, I haven’t really found the time to deep dive on a …

SHS 19: SIG P320 Compact Medium

I’ve been keeping my eye out for a used SigP320. Ideally I would prefer something with a full-sized frame so I’m going to pass on this example. But I know many of you would prefer a Glock 19 sized frame of handgun. This may be right up your alley. Stats: Carry sized gun. 9mm / 9×19 4 15 round mags …

US Army Selects the SIG P320

As I sit and type, the last day of SHOT is wrapping up and Donald Trump is 15 minutes away from being sworn in as the 45th President of The United States. 2017 is turning out to be one hell of a year. In short, 2017 is the year both Hillary Clinton and Glock are losers. Wow. Now for some …

Handguns Seen at 2016 Ft. Benning Sniper Challenge

I know the subject of issued military handguns is always a hot-button topic among most firearms enthusiasts. I suspect the reason for this isn’t the significance or primacy of handguns in combat. They are secondary and rarely used. But rather civilians live in mostly a handgun world. So any brand confirmation hits them right in the feels. But let us …

Glock is Already the Military Service Pistol

The fix is in. I thought maybe with the rumors about the SIG P320 being the FBI favorite, things would change? But the FBI just choose a Glock. And IMO it will be a standard Glock. Not some crazy custom, new Glock. Why? Because the 9mm Glock is already in the FBI’s Table of Equipment (TOE). You see, the FBI …

Custom VP & P320 Triggers: The YGF

I realize this post will be somewhat controversial, but I was asked for an honest opinion. The reader wanted to know, “who is the best “custom shop” for HK VP9 and SIG P320 triggers?” My answer as of July, 2016? They all suck. To explain why I answer this way it is important to understand who I am speaking with. …

FBI Selects Glock 9mm

I will start off by saying that I know as much as you do regarding the FBI’s decision to choose a Glock 9mm as the next standard service pistol. Also like many of you, I too had heard that the FBI’s RFP basically seemed written to give the SIG P320 the win. Now before we all start going off the …
