Handling your sidearm is like handling your vehicle. If you are negligent or arrogant: a severe cost could result. On the range you could see stove-pipe jams, a wide shot pattern on target, and experience having to take more time reacquiring between shots. In a gunfight these errors could very well get you killed. One training factor is how you grip the handgun. For semi-automatic handguns, I recommend the Combat Grip. This grip is also referred to as the Leatham-Enos Grip, in case you want to do more research, and it’s also commonly referred to as the “thumbs forward” grip.
The SIG-Sauer P320 is probably the most searched of firearms on Google and the most popular handgun on the market right now. I don’t believe that there are many who would disagree with that statement. Make no mistake, the P320 was popular before the U.S. Army concluded their Modular Handgun System program and named the striker-fired SIG the winner. The key word there – and stone cold fact – being modular. I was fortunate enough to be allowed to borrow a full-size 9mm P320 from a friend recently. I must say; this SIG platform continues to leave an impression on me. I have had the opportunity to fire several 9mm Compacts and one .45 ACP Compact, in the past.
This past month, I received my Concealed Handgun License, after it was released by the “Constitutional Restraint Unit”. No disrespect to the state police, but it’s asinine that anybody has to pay a ransom to obtain a Constitutionally-protected human right. That aside, just before July began, I picked up a SIG-Sauer P229 Scorpion TB for carry… which meant a whole new holster system. It was a clear departure from the Glock and Edge Works INCOG set-up that I had been running — mostly due to the fact that the Glock sponsored the SIG’s purchase.
