    Well......the gold one sold.

    That just goes to show, there's something out there for everyone.

    Or....you could say....Some have more money than they do common sense.

    X5 models are Sigs custom competion models and normally run well over 2K for the basic model. No different than the custom 1911 models that run 2K to 5K.

    I like the gold one... not diggin' the other.

    I'm suspecting that it's just me. I've never been into commemoratives, partially or fully-engraved, or limited edition firearms.

    I don't like animals, skulls, or cross-bones on mine. No weird or contrasting colors, flags, or persons of historic significance.

    I do prefer an understated elegance, one that is complimented by smooth, graceful, and well thought out lines.

    Yup.....that's what I'm talkin about.

    When I hit 500 posts, I received a gift certificate for $300.00, a ball cap with the forum logo on it, and a letter of congrats from President Obama.

    I was quite sure that I mentioned it on this forum.

    No decocker... these are competition target models that traditionally have safeties vs decocker (tactical/combat) models.

    On your TAC Ops, do you find the decocker very useful

    Of course... use it all the time to make the firearm safe after shooting. Sig's decocker is second to none... even better than the Beretta 92 and much better than a CZ (I own all 3).

    I don't like safeties on my guns, although my Sig P238 has one (cocked & locked 1911). I find a good DA/SA to be more appropriate for a HD or tactical duty firearm.

    Thanks, I'm looking to get another couple guns now that my wife wants to shoot. She took the fla class last week, and Nys application is in the works. The NYS COULD TAKE OVER A YEAR TO GET, if approved.
    But now that the wife loves to shoot,lol. Every gun I get is gonna be for her,lol hehe.The flood gates are open.
