    Just bought me a SIG.

    Also got free shipping and won't have to pay any sales tax.

    And yes, I'm a very happy camper.

    It's exactly like this one: Sig Sauer 226 TACOPS 9mm Threaded Barrel w/Ship : Semi Auto Pistols at GunBroker.com

    Here's a close-up: http://pics.reedssports.com/gb/sige26r-9-tacops-tb2.JPG

    Ammo isn't a problem.

    I'm thinking I have about 7K rounds of 9mm on hand.

    1. a metal frame or container holding cartridges; can be inserted into an automatic gun
    (synonym) cartridge holder, cartridge clip, magazine

    Well.....I sent off payment today. Now, I just have to wait. Disclaimer on seller's site says that due to increased current market demand of firearms / accessories, shipping could take an add'l. 5 days or so.

    I'd heard that the bootleg maker was Hi-Point.

    At least Taurus is a step up from them.

    Hey, Paratrooper... interested what brand mags your gun comes with (Sig/Checkmate/MecGar), as well as the case/cardboard box.

    The Tac Ops has had some changes since it was introduced (mags/packaging) and I was curious to your model came with when ya get it.

    It's supposed to come in a plastic case, that much I know for sure. Not sure about the mags though.

    I'm gonna buy another light, and I'm thinking a SureFire X300 would serve it well.

    When it shows up, I'll let ya know about it's particulars.

    BTW.....did yours come with a holster?

    No, but those Sig holsters are junk... got one with my P238 and it's way too tight, and cheap too... like most holsters that come with guns.

    I got the standard plasic Sig case... but have heard a lot of people getting them in a cardboard box from Sig.

    My mags are Sig Brand... but are working fine. The ones from Checkmate are the ones with issues. Obviously if you get Mec Gar ones your good to go as well.

    I bought an Itac holster for my SIG P250C. It came from Israel and fits like a fine driving glove.

    I'm hoping the one that comes with my P226 fits as well.

    I've been using a Kydex one from Zero Concealment Systems (ZCS) for my Tac Ops and it required no break-in. Tight retention with a smooth, quick draw. $55 is hard to beat for a custom holster made to your exact specifications (color/cant/sweat shield/light/belt loop size).

    Well, I usually don't put the horse before the cart, but I just ended up winning an auction for the SureFire X300 Ultra Light for my Sig that has yet to arrive.

    I got it at an extremely good price that included free shipping. I did my homework on this light, and it's one of, if not the best, handgun lights that you can buy.

    I have a StreamLight TLR-1 on my Sig P250C that is rated at 135 lumens. It's so very bright that you can't look at the beam.

    The SureFire X300 Ultra is rated at 500 lumens. It's totally shock-proof, dust-proof and water-proof, down to 35' or so, and of course, is mil-spec.

    Between the 20 rd. capacity of the Sig P226 Tac-Ops, and 500 lumens of brilliant white light, I should be good to go.

    Here's a link to it: http://www.surefire.com/illumination...s/handgun.html Ultra

    Just received an e-mail message that my payment and copy of FFL has been received. My new SIG has been sent to the shipping dept. for processing.

    I'm hoping to have it within a week or so.

    News just gets better and better.

    I just received an e-mail message / tracking number from UPS. My gun has been picked up and is en-route, 2nd Day Air.

    It's scheduled to arrive this Friday. I purchased it from Northern Firearms, out of Walker, MN. First time I've dealt with them. Totally a 1st class run business. They kept me apprised of each step and were very fast to respond to my order. They also had the best price, as well as free shipping.

    I'll be doing business again with them in the future.
