Also, same as I they do not like the trigger pull it seems very squishy and my friends as well me have a hard time getting used to the pull and I have never gotten used to it. The trigger pull seems way to squishy and light, I hate it.

      Currently, I'm looking to find a new semi-auto but have ran into some problems finding a trigger pull that I like. I like a trigger pull thats stiff and snappy kinda like a rifle which I predominantly shoot. I've looked at several makes and models of semi-autos. With several gun shops and dealers in the area I have alot to choose from but there are too many makes and models to try each one.

      I'm hoping you guys can help my narrow a decision in finding a suitable model that fits my liking. I'm just try trying to find one with a short, stiff, snappy trigger pull, not sloppy soft pull. I hope you guys can help.

      Thanks,

      Sounds like you need a 1911 to me. I prefer either a .45 ACP or 9mm. I never could quite warm up to the .40 S&W. It is a good round, but I could never shoot it that well. JMHO.

      Yeah, Walther went out of their way to get this one right. I agree with Grunt on this one.

      I just could never see purchasing a firearm, for usually alot of money, and then spending more money changing this and changing that....if the firearm isn't to your liking out of the box, maybe you should be purchasing another firearm.

      A gun is actually a tool , you must know what function you want it to perform , CC , targeting , home protection , etc. . Once you know that , then your quest begins , it's out there somewhere , just keep looking , it's like finding the right woman , she's out there .

      I own a Sig P220 compact in .45 cal.



      It comes in DAO and DA/SA.

      Very accurate gun with mild recoil.
