I thought about trying to justify (scam) a class out of the army, but it's pretty hard when your the only anesthesiologist at your hospital, and the command doesn't want to even pay for the anual training I really do need.

Until you are driving down some road in Afghanistan and someone starts to light-up that convoy you're in. Everyone is a rifleman first and something else second.

Yeah, money getting tight and will only get tighter now that the war in Iraq is "over". It's funny how we all still know Soldiers that are still there.

You're exactly right, except they wont pay to have enough staff to run a hospital as it is, let alone to have enough staff to cover so everyone can go get the real training they need to survive in country.

We shot about 600 rounds. Those who had bad aim ended up shooting more.

I took my .40Sig P229. I decided I don't like it much after this class though. My thumb rests on the slide lock, so when you shoot the mag dry the slide doesn't lock to the rear. I'm trying to switch my grip from thumbs forward to thumbs up, but it's hard to break bad habits. Also I don't like the 1st hard double action trigger pull. I'm looking to replace it with a Wilson combat 1911 CQB LE in .45ACP. The $2800 price tag is the only limiting factor. I also really like the XDM 4.5 in .45ACP.

I am also a Sig guy. I have the P239 in .40 and .357sig. It is currently at Gray Guns getting a trigger job. They will reduce your 1st DA pull dramatically and also decrease the SA pull as well as making the entire pull smooth. A little hard on the pocket book at 325.00 but will be a dream to fire.

That is a lot for a trigger. Especially when I can by a whole brand new glock for just over $400.

I'm not a gun nut. I don't hunt and I don't shoot for fun. We have a glock 9mm with tritium sights for home protection and that's it. I know a lot of people enjoy shooting for recreation but I'd rather spend the cash on gas for the boat!

Yes you can by a Glock for around 400, however I am not a Glock fan at all. Some people love them others like my self hate them. I can not shoot them, they feel cheap to me. They are proven by LE and military, but not for me.

I think Sig and H&K are some of the most durable and rugged pistol you can get. This trigger job will be well worth the money!!!
