    We were at the range the day she did it. She shut the door, there was a long silence, then she said "Bob, I just shut my finger in the door. I need to go to the emergency room." I said "There's not much the emergency room will do about a finger in the door." She showed it to me, and I said "Let's go to the emergency room." When we got there, the triage guy asked the problem. We told him. He said "There's not much we can do about a finger in the door." She showed it to him. He said "Follow me, I'll get the surgeon." As I recall, it took seven or eight stitches.

    You guys do realize that these Sigs don't exist without pictures don't you?

    O.K. I just like gun porn. I haven't seen one in person and this has been an interesting thread.

    Son just bought the compact in .40. Cost him $499 OTD. He has to wait 3 days before he picks it up. He had S&W Shield in .40 but sold it some time ago. I thought the Shield was difficult to control. I'm sure 9mm would have been better, at least for me.

    Update: I guess my son sold his M&P and bought the Shield in .40. I still think the Shield is just difficult for me to control in that caliber. Went out with his new Sig P320 Compact in .40 and I was very impressed with the trigger. By far, the most accurate pistol I've shot in a long time. Larger than Shield or PPS but fits well in my hand. Sights are very nice. I may have to add one to my collection in 9MM.

    I have shot the p320 in 9mm and 45.
    The 9mm didn't do much for me, but really only shot a few rounds through a couple of different ones that students had in class.

    Gun shop I was working at got a p320 compact in 45 ACP.

    I took that out, not expecting much.
    Boy I was wrong, it put a grin on my face that just couldn't be wiped off.
    I ran a couple of hundred rounds through it, all the 45 I had with me.

    Got back to the shop, the owner took one look at me and said 'No, you can't have it, it's mine'

    I guess my face showed exactly how I felt about it.

    Why did I like it so much, I couldn't even tell you, it just felt 'right' in my hands.

    As an instructor I get to shoot a decent variety of guns, and as much as I like them all, it is very rare for me to get truly excited about one.

    This was one of them.

    The real question in my mind is why the 9mm versions never did much for me, but the 45 did.

    Once they get in service we'll see how they hold up. Sig makes good guns so you shouldn't have any big problems.

    If your wife hated her Glock, why did she like this gun? They are very similar in nature and operation.

    Glock Protests Army’s Modular Handgun Decision

    FEBRUARY 27, 2017

    Glock Inc., filed a protest today against the Army’s selection of the Sig Sauer P320 to become the service’s new Modular Handgun System

    Glock filed the protest Friday, Feb. 24 with the Government Accountability Office. The move will likely delay the Modular Handgun System Program until June 5 when the GAO is expected to rule on the protest, according to the GAO website.

    Army Times first reported the story.

    The Army awarded Sig Sauer a contract worth up to $580 million Jan. 19. Sig Sauer beat out Glock Inc., FN America and Beretta USA, the maker of the current M9 9mm service pistol, in the competition for the Modular Handgun System, or MHS, program.

    The 10-year agreement calls for Sig to supply the Army with full-size and compact versions of its 9mm pistol. The pistols can be outfitted with suppressors and accommodate standard and extended capacity magazines.

    The Army launched its long-awaited XM17 MHS competition in late August 2015 to replace its Cold War-era M9 9mm pistol. The decision formally ended the Beretta’s 30-year hold on the Army’s sidearm market.

    The Army in December down-selected to two finalists for the competition: Sig and Glock, which had submitted its Glock 17 and Glock 19 models for consideration.

    Given the size of the contract, Glock was widely expected to protest the decision.

    The Army began working with the small arms industry on Modular Handgun System in early 2013, but the joint effort has been in the works for more than five years. It could result in the Defense Department buying nearly 500,000 new pistols.

    The Army says it is still trying to work out how many new pistols it plans to field, but Program Executive Office Soldier officials initially estimated that the service planned to purchase more than 280,000 full size handguns and approximately 7,000 sub-compact versions.

    The other military services participating in the program may order an additional 212,000 systems above the Army quantity.

    My wife shot a bordello field pistol match with the P320 compact just for fun. She was using the first load I tried: 3.8/231/125 Lee RF. This load seems to string vertically for me, but she shot it rather well. Lately I have shot some groups with factory loads, and I was especially surprised at how well it shot 115 gr. fmj. It actually grouped better with that than anything else I have tried so far. The grip is short for me. Sometimes I can get my pinkie on, and sometimes not. That may explain the vertical stringing. So far, everything that has gone bang has functioned perfectly.

    I got the wife one back around May of last year. so far it has close to, if not more than 1500 rounds through it with no gun related issues. I admit that there have been a few stove pipes but those were easily explained by the age and size of the grandson who was shooting it. Just doesn't have the wrist strength just yet.

    The oldest at 15 however, will burn through as much ammo as I have with me, and hasn't found anything that he doesn't like. Hard to actually keep track of the rounds through the pistol with him shooting. I just know I have loaded close to 3500 rounds since we got it and he also likes my P226 TO. The wife has had no issues with it running full power factory loads along side my lite loads of 4.0gr of Bullseye under a Berry 115gr RN for the kiddo's.

    My best friend just ordered a P320 compact in 9mm. He is going to get the subcompact grip and mags for carry. Prices on these things are all over the place. He is getting his for $449.00 before tax. My favorite shop has them for $489.00. Darth Vader's Gun Shop and Range aka Bud's wants $580.00.

    Was finally able to meet up and give my friend's P320 a try. Within the first mag I was shooting it as well as my Glocks. The trigger pull and feel of the grip is excellent, Sig did a first rate job with them. The slide is a bit wide for my taste and I really don't care for the forward cocking serrations and downward sloping contour of the sides. They should have just gone with the classic P220 series look. Can't have it all I guess, very nice pistol otherwise.
