You need to spend time with ammo, not picking out new clothes

I'm good...just went for a short hike with the G26 in tow. It carried very well, let's go to the range...

I went and handled one yesterday at Cabellas and it's bigger than I thought. Overall it's bigger than the G26 but slimmer.
Still it is very nice and the trigger felt good.
I'm gonna wait until the price drops because they were asking exactly MSRP of $449 but then again it was Cabelas so that wasn't surprising.

I'm 6-8 months before I buy, see what the "on street" feedback is.
Done....

Interesting note regarding Cabela's:

I corresponded with Dustin Edwards, the Senior Hardlines Manager at the Cabela’s in East Hartford. He apologized for my less than satisfactory experience at the store on March 26th. And I quote "I will take a second to explain our price match policy: just for future reference we will match any price on ANY item in our store where the customer can show direct proof that the item is available for purchase at a facility within approximately 100 miles of our store."

So, the next time Cabela's has something that other stores don't, but their price is higher, you can get the better price.

its not much different then my 9c. I kinda think it was odd for S&W to come out with this. I like the safety better then mine but hell the guns almost exactly the same width and length and I have 12+1 rounds instead of 7 or 8.

That stinks :( ...but at least you don't seem to upset about it.
Right now I'm not in the market for new firearms.

Someone needs to let one of the site admins know that someone hacked PaiN's account.
