          I love how a ricochet round flew up and cut a tree limb. Convex metal target..That's some safe shootin.

            My sidearm of choice is the SIG 229, 40sw. Smaller than the 226 which is perfect for me.

              I like the CZ. My personal choice of auto is G19, but I don't think you can go wrong with something along the lines of this type revolver.

                I've got a Sig 225 back in 1990/91 when Sig was still made in West Germany. Says it right on the slide.

                Like the grip on it better than then 228 being a single stack, but plenty of spare mags. Don't plan on being in a major shhotout though.

                Most accurate fix sight pistol if ever shot. Very reliable. Stoved piped once when I first shot it, then I cycled reloads without a hitch no matter hollow points or fmj. Surprised Sig stopped making the 225 guess because of single stack. They did still have the 228 which is same frame.

                My little jewel is S&W model 632 .327 Federal Mag. Muzzle energy close to .357 but in a smaller package. Wide variety in cartridges is great too.

                  I heard the 229, 40 is excellent. In fact I was thinking of getting one. IIRC, the P229 is the sidearm of choice for LEO's. I also heard the triggers can be a little funky. Kinda like 'clink'. I have the Sig 1911 .45 and I do love that gun. But it's big so not a great cc or to take out on hikes. But I still do like it. I really need to go shooting. I haven't gone in well over a year and I'm not a great shot to start with. Especially with pistols. But, I just got new glasses and I wonder if that will make a difference?

                  I also have the S&W .38 and while I do LOVE the size and simplicity of it and it's so nice n' easy to conceal and take hiking, I'm definitely not a very good shot with it because it kicks like crazy. I need something in between. So I guess I don't have a favorite sidearm at the moment.

                    Is that a S&W .357? I really LOVE the idea of the .357 and probably with a 4" barrel so it's no so long. I also LOVE the idea you can put .38 hollow points in there so it doesn't kick quite as bad. I think that would be a good sidearm for me. But, I also LOVE that the 1911 has the double safety. I know a lot of people don't think you need the double safety but I like that. Plus, out hiking in the ice it's easy to fall down and with that double safety it's almost impossible to have an accidental discharge. Wouldn't that just be the WORST luck to fall down while hiking and have your side arm go off and shoot yourself too!!! Crap, just falling down is bad enough!!!! I think I'll just practice more and get used to the 1911.

                      You are correct about the trigger on the 229 being strange. Seems like you need to double pull it sometimes. Plus the guard they have on to keep your thumb away from the slide coming back gets irritating after a while. I took a rotary tool and ground mine down to take the edge off it!
                      I also love the simplicity of a 38 revolver. Just point and shoot!

                        Well. A sidearm is just what you fight with till you can reach your battle rifle imho.

                          Not if they're 30' or less from you rover. There's no time to get the rifle adjusted most likely and you'd, I should say I'd, be stuck with whatever sidearm I had. Of course if that's a revolver that's only 5 shots for the .38 and I believe 7 for the .357. At least the 1911 has 8 shots. That some advantage there. IMHO. I'm liking the 1911 more and more. Plus, that thing is rock solid even if it is big. It has the 5" barrel.

                            Gotta admit, point and shoot is nice. I've had some stove pipes in my .45 and I need to work on that. The good news is I'm very good at unsticking them now. Although it would be better if that didn't happen. I'm wondering if I need to check out what type of ammo I'm using because I shouldn't be having that problem. I really need to get to the range and work out all these kinks in my shooting program. Wouldn't it be just AWFUL to have a jam in an emergency!!!

                              You should count your rounds out Mogli. When your training. It will help you focus.
