    I'll be keeping tabs on this story to see what comes out in the wash.

    Question.

    It seems to me that almost all scenarios I hear about that involve a cop drawing his weapon are not so life threatening that he couldn't take the extra second to rack the slide as he's drawing, especially if he trains to do it. Why do these guys then carry a semi auto like a 320 which has no manual safety (at least my early model doesn't) in condition I ?

    Interesting how SEPTA is reportedly dumping Sigs for Glocks for its reasons and PSP dumped Glocks for Sigs for its reasons. Heavy sigh...

    What if the bad guy gets the jump on you first and blows your support hand off? I’ve done a lot of training for one handed firearm manipulation, but I’d say 99% of gun owners have not. A gun with no round in the chamber is a paperweight.

    The ease of use of the sig p396 makes 1 hand operation feasible unlike my kahr or literally any other handgun i own.
