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!

That’s All I Got For You Today, Stay Tuned for more and follow my training at PatriotOutdoors.

Covid

Give Me Liberty or Give Me The Vaccine

Patrick Henry Speaking About Freedom

The American history books use to teach of a patriot named Patrick Henry.  Patrick Henry was a founding father of American.  Yes the term founding father is a term that Google still finds worthy as they identifies Henry as one.  Patrick Henry was a man who stood up to the oppression of King George.  In the second Virginia Convention in 1775, he proclaimed “give me liberty or give me death.”  In days past, Patrick Henry was a symbol of the American spirit of freedom.  His passion and his ability to communicate his desire for freedom are powerful words that continue to motivate bold and courageous leaders for the last 200 years.

Today it would be wise for patriot Americans who value freedom to again pick up this sentiment.  The call that freedom is the most essential component of existence which brings life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

Vaccine Manipulation:

Trending on PolitiCrossing.com: Red Herring Argument: The KKK Agrees With You

President Joe Biden now declares that Americans who do not take the Covid19 vaccine are “not as smart as he thought they were” and that they (American citizens) are “a real problem.”

Many Americans believe in the vaccine, but they believe more in freedom.  Donald Trump, the leader of the Republic Party has also encouraged people to get the vaccine.  The vaccine is not a Republican or Democrat issue, but how the vaccine is administered very much speaks to how the political leaders look at freedom.

Free Americans should believe that the Government should not be able to dictate the health decisions that an individual should make.  They believe that they should have the ability to review facts and data and not be forced to make a decision about their health based on strawman arguments like you “if you care for your pet, you should get vaccinated.”

Maybe instead of shaming people or trying to bribe people into getting the vaccine, lawmakers should convince people on the merit of the issue and allow them to exercise their freedom to make the best choice for themselves and their country, after all that is what freedom is about.  Maybe President Biden could try to solve the real problem in the vaccine issue.  He could do that by answering the questions that many Americans are still looking for as they analyze their decision about their own health.  Answering any or all of the following questions would be a start:

Vaccine Questions About Covid19:

  1.  What are the top 3 risks that a person might experience with the Covid19 vaccine?  Instead of answering this simple question, those that are in charge get offended when people seek good answers to health.  It has been the history in America to outline the potential health hazards to the choices that people make such as a warning on a pack of cigarettes.  But this concept seems foreign to those that would like to manipulate the public to make a decision without a choice – that just seems wrong.
  2. Why does everyone need the vaccine, including those that already have had Covid19?  This is an honest question and one that Senator Rand Paul has asked.  There may be a case to be made for those who have had Covid19 to receive the vaccine, but it seems like no logical or rational person is making one.
  3. Is there anyone who should not get the Covid19 vaccines?  Health issues are very personal issues and often are different for people with different issues and demographics.  There has been very little talk in main stream media about exceptions to the vaccine and more and more talk about how even babies should be getting the vaccine.  John Hopkins recently misled their readers with statement on their website about children getting the vaccine – “Yes. Experts, including those at Johns Hopkins, believe that the benefits of being vaccinated for COVID-19 outweigh the risks. Although COVID-19 in children is usually milder than in adults, some kids can get very sick and have complications or long-lasting symptoms that affect their health and well-being. The virus can cause death in children although this is rarer than for adults.”  Further the CDC is now recommending the pregngnant women and new mothers who are breastfeeding should receive the vaccine.  They state on the website “Pregnant and recently pregnant people are more likely to get severely ill with COVID-19 compared with non-pregnant people. If you are pregnant, you can receive a COVID-19 vaccine. Getting a COVID-19 vaccine during pregnancy can protect you from severe illness from COVID-19.”  These kind of one sided statements, should be carefully read to consider the political biases of the organization.  One has to wonder if they are really concerned about the health of the individual or the health of the whole.  I would be very hesitate to recommend a trial vaccine to a pregnant woman when there has not been studies to show that no impact will be made on the mother of the child.
  4. Where did Covid19 orginate?  An essential question in the vaccine conversation, should be consideration as to where Covid orginated.  If Covid19 orginated in a lab as a way to kill off a part of the communist elderly in China, then that would dedicate who needs the vaccine.  The idea a communist country was developing a method to kill off part of their population for population control should be considered and explored.  Americans politicians on the left seem to forget that just a few years ago communist China limited the number of babies that their people could have and would kill a child if it was born and was above the number that the government dictated as acceptable.  It is fair for the American population to wait to understand where Covid19 began before making health choices about their own health.

These questions and many more still deserve an answer.  It is the responsibility of the leaders and press in a free country to answer the fair and honest questions of free people.  Until those questions, millions of Americans will still cry out “give me liberty, or give me the vaccine.”  These Americans still choose freedom first.

Out-of-Context ‘Journalism’ Prevails

Liberal publishers and reporters revel in anything that lambasts, lampoons, and demonizes any view that strays from the liberal narrative

Published

on

Aided and abetted by a gullible populace, the ‘mainstream’ media, 24/7, 365 days a year, for decades, knowingly misrepresents any viewpoints that differ from its own. Indeed, many media outlets do this, all the time. They take sound bites and out-of-context material and run with it.

Making broadsweeping generalizations is often fraught with danger, but the evidence is ample and non-stop. Simply click on HuffPost.com, Daily Kos, or The Daily Beast, or any of dozens of other left-leaning sites, at any given time.

Not an Even Playing Field

Do right-leaning news outlets and websites do the same? Less so if only because the GOP does not control the narrative as do the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Washington Post, and the major papers in Boston, Philadelphia, Charlotte, Atlanta, Miami, Detroit, Chicago, San Francisco, ad infinitum.

As a lifelong registered independent and I have voted on all sides of the political spectrum. In recent years, I’ve seen the ‘progressives’ go too far on a range of issues.

I recognize that some in the GOP are behind the times. However, consider that most of the press votes Democrat (85% to 88% in every election) decade after decade, across all jurisdictions, regardless of the candidate, the issues, or the platforms.

The U.S. press, in the main, slants everything to the left. Life-long liberal publishers and reporters revel in sound bites and out-of-context journalism that lambasts, lampoons, and demonizes anyone or any view that strays from the liberal narrative.

Indoctrination Nation

The journalism schools, from Columbia in Missouri, on down, invariably steer students to the left. To sell newspapers, advertising, or other services, the Left’s sound bite, out-of-context approach works as well and, as quickly, as anything.

The Left predictably is most vicious and displays its unbarred racism when characterizing right-leaning African Americans or other minority individuals – those who have the temerity to form their own opinion. Think Condoleezza Rice, Allen West, Armstrong Williams, Larry Elder, Jason Whitlock, Clarence Thomas, the late Herman Cain, Alan Keyes, Senator Tim Scott, and Candace Owens, among legions of others.
