    Default Full Size Comparison

    I had nothing in particular to do this morning, so I thought I'd get an accurate weight on three of my full sized handguns that I frequently carry. To make the comparison fair, I included 17 rounds of ammo with each.

    First is my Wilson Combat CQB. Gun, two eight round mags, +1:

    3 pounds, 5 ounces.


    Second is a Sig P226R. Gun, eighteen round mag downloaded to 17:

    2 pounds, 8 ounces.



    Third is the Glock 17. Gun, seventeen round mag:

    2 pounds, 1 ounce.

    So..........what does all this mean?

    Not a danm thing, other than I was bored for about 15 minutes. I'm over it now & I'm going outside & do something.

    Less than 8 pounds if you pack all three.

    My wife was on some sort of diet a few years ago & she bought a kitchen scale to weigh food. I've found better uses for it.
