Top 3 Sig Models You should know

Today, I’m going to break down for you my Top Three Sig Sauer models That I have chosen for range training, home defense and every day carry!

Over the years, I’ve had the privilege of working for Sig Sauer Academy and training thousands of students and officers around the country and overseas. If you’ve never taken a course through the Academy up in New Hampshire or when offered in your area; I’d highly recommend it. You will be exposed to such a professional setting and be steeped in a great foundation of the fundamentals.

Something to note, you don’t even have to train with a Sig when you go there… As a connoisseur of handguns, I’ve had my share of certain Sig models and the three I’m showing have grown to be my go to’s.

Sig Sauer (P320) M17 Custom – Full Size

This is one a model I chose for heavy duty training on the range and for home defense. It’s a full size frame, so, it’s easy to handle recoil, great for adding a weapon-light and a red dot optic. I’ve shot and trained with this platform for well over 10k rounds down range prior to a full cleaning, I did lube the gun, but rarely clean it. I love the versatility of the grip modules, accessory adaptability and more importantly the trigger. It has such a smooth trigger press, especially with the flat trigger and the reset is manageable.

One last thing to mention, Magazines… This model comes with 17rd mags, and 21rds magazines are available. Totally worth having!

Sig Sauer (P320) Custom Carry

This model is sexy if I do say so myself. I started with the Wilson Combat Grip Module. It feels the best in my hand with a medium sized, ergonomic and textured feel and with a bit of a magazine-well flare. I also chose the Pro Cut Slide from Sig directly. Like the Full Size Slide above, they come with a great set of night sights. For those who aren’t in the know of how to acquire all of these parts.

I ordered the barrel, slide, recoil spring online at www.SigSauer.com. The Grips I ordered online as well. However, the Trigger Module I purchased from a local FFL dealer. It is the key component that is serialized and must be purchased through an authorized gun dealer. For the magazines, I used some of my old Gen 1 Mags and replaced the floor plates to adapt to the gen 2, grip module from Gray Guns.

Overall this model is extremely versatile for training, home defense and concealment, it has a full-size grip and magazine and still light enough for carrying but rugged enough for hardcore training.

Sig Sauer P365XL –  Compact -My EDC

I’ve mentioned this model before but I thought I’d throw this one in just because it’s a Sig Sauer and one of my all time favorite EDC guns. For years, I was looking for such a model and ones previously offered either didn’t have the ammo capacity or the dependability.

I know for those of you who have trained with me or know me, know I typically am labeled a Glock guy, but I’ll tell ya this model is my go to!  From the nights sights, the great flat trigger like the others mentioned to it’s compact-ability, ease of use and retrieval, it certainly has not underperformed for me.

Train to WIN!

I know for many of us, we like to get on the range and have a great time, but I’m here to tell you, if you aren’t training for a real world encounter or take yourself and your gun handling seriously, you will fail when seconds count.  Train to Win, train with purpose, evolve yourself and your skills. Your life or someone else’s may just depend on it.

So, watch and learn, feel free to Like, Comment & Share. Ask questions and I’ll be more than happy to explain in other details or give you more resources to help you make a decision with your next purchase or concealed Carry option!

The insights or wisdom we need to get us going often don’t have to be more than a few words

Published

on

I’ve spoken to 1075 audiences at conventions, conferences, and meetings, and have had the opportunity to hear probably 800 other speakers as well.

The insights, perspectives, or wisdom we need, to get us going often don’t have to be more than a few words. Here are 52 of my own six word “speeches,” drawn from my keynotes and breakout session on the topic of work-life balance. Some of these likely will resonate with you:

Choose from what you already have.
Everyone needs breathing space, especially you.
Information overload obscures meaning and relevance.
Deep breathes are essential for well-being.

Make every day an organized day.
Allow your natural rhythms to rule.
Stay confident and in control daily.
Manage your time, manage your life.

Slow down to plot your course.
Look for the best in others.
Make yourself indispensable on the job.
Compete with yourself, not with others.

Learn to take control of today.
Manage your time to make time.
Take control of your desk clutter.
You’re the best when you’re fresh.

Do something to take control now.
Major projects often require a jumpstart.
Methodically pare down your paper piles.
Don’t attempt too much at once.

Evaluate your situation and what’s important.
Narrow your priorities to stay focused.
Avoid making promises you can’t keep.
Learn to embrace your many talents.

Take the time to become organized.
Become aware of how you react.
Arrange your space; help isn’t coming.
Manage the flat surfaces in life.

Periodically challenge yourself to perform better.
Take long, deep breaths as needed.
Reclaim your places, spaces, and graces.
Start big projects well in advance.

Don’t rush the truly important things.
Make the best use of today.
Schedule accordingly: plan for your future.
Be kind, cut yourself some slack.

Opportunity knocks, but are you answering?
Conventional wisdom has diminishing value.
When practical, substitute time for money.
The market for top talent lives.

The self-reliant survive and thrive.
Leadership requires forethought and super-vision.
Learn from and capitalize on mistakes.
Firmly face the future with confidence.

“Now” holds a lot of opportunity.
Control but don’t curb your enthusiasm.
Treading water won’t propel you forward.
Have you ever really tested yourself?

Life goes on; do your best.
Continually seek out the higher ground.
Luck is distributed evenly, but disguised.
You must be doing something right.

America’s Accountability Crisis

Published

on

Accountability used to matter and should matter now more than ever. We hear the complaints from average Americans expecting authorities to uphold the rule of law: “It’s a revolving door for criminals; they’re in and out the same day!” “If they don’t have to pay off their student loans, why should I?” “How come some get special treatment?”

Responsible students and their parents paying the bills are wondering why graduation ceremonies are being canceled because of a few hundred irresponsible demonstrators. Responsible students want to fulfill their dream of a college graduation in front of their proud family and friends.

Now, at times violent and destructive anti-Israel demonstrators are demanding amnesty for their actions. In America, demonstrators certainly have the right to take a stand for their views. It’s another matter entirely to attack police officers, destroy university property, or threaten to kill anyone because of their race, religion, or politics. Coming with the right to demonstrate, comes the corresponding responsibility to endure the consequences for their actions.

Thankfully, some university administrators are taking steps to hold students responsible. Even with many liberal faculty criticizing his response, UCLA Chancellor Gene Block announced that he remains committed to using facial-recognition technology to identify those who carried out violent attacks: “To that end, inaugural Associate Vice Chancellor and Chief Safety Officer Rick Braziel is leading a law enforcement investigation to identify the perpetrators of the violence and hold them to account. The LAPD has committed a detective to assist in our investigative efforts, and we have also connected with the FBI about possible assistance. We have spoken to Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón to solicit his help in ensuring that the instigators will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.”

Rhode Island School of Design president, Crystal Williams, had had enough. She confronted the demonstrators on campus requiring them to undergo a “restorative justice process.” They had to return the occupied space to its original condition and have constructive dialogue with the students negatively impacted. If they did not honor her deadline to leave their encampment, those remaining would face expulsion. Faced with strong leadership, the students complied.

Senators Marco Rubio and Representative August Pfluger have written, “The First Amendment guarantees every American the right to free speech, but no one has the right to destroy private property, trespass illegally, or attack innocent people. This is why college administrators are justified in disbanding anti-Israel protests-turned-riots by force. We can and should, however, go one step further: we should deport the non-Americans who have participated in these riots.”

In short, criminal demonstrators should face consequences and not be rewarded with amnesty. But our crisis in accountability goes beyond how we respond to the demonstrations in support of Hamas. When you do any crime, you should be responsible to do the time. The failure to face consequences just encourages more crime. It’s time to end the revolving door for any criminal and return to requiring bail in order to be released. Violators should be charged and know that those charges will remain on their record.

The crisis of accountability goes beyond how we handle crime. Students should be responsible for the loans they incur in securing a degree. They signed the loan; it’s their debt to pay. President Joe Biden’s unconstitutional practice of forgiving student loan debt for some in hopes of securing their vote strikes at the core of our shared values. Why should anyone pay off their debt? In fact, why doesn’t Biden forgive our mortgage debt, our credit card debt, or our medical debts?

Aristotle took a stand for accountability when he wrote, “At his best, man is the noblest of all animals; separated from law and justice he is the worst.” There is a cost to the failure to hold people accountable. That cost is our very freedom.

John Locke observed, “The end of law is not to abolish or restrain, but to preserve and enlarge freedom. For in all the states of created beings capable of law, where there is no law, there is no freedom.”

Society functions because everyone is required to play by the same rules. When rules are not enforced, when criminals are set free instead of being held accountable, and when some citizens are given special treatment, we put our republic in jeopardy. In November, take a stand for accountability. Return Republicans to office with every vote you make.
