My First Sig - P290 First Edition
My first trip to "our" Sig forum. So be kind, please. :mrgreen:
Generally I hang out in the Newbies, General Semi-Auto, Beretta, Ruger, S&W, and General Revolver forums.
I bought my Sig at Cabela's in Phoenix last Monday. Went to buy a Ruger LC9. They had 12.
I brought home the Sig for a LOT more money. A 240 mile round trip down and back up the mountains. tumbleweed
Below is the link to my "story" post in the "General Semi-Auto" forum.
If you go read it, you will understand why it is "there", and not "here".
I have a couple of long "impressions" of the gun, and there are some "queries" about it.
I really like the 290. But, I'm having a devil of a time getting the slide off. As in I haven't done it yet.
Yes, I read the instruction manual. Yes, I watched video's of folks field-strip other Sigs.
With the recoil springs, it's really hard to KEEP things lined up and push out the slide stop pin.
Maybe I need a third hand ? Maybe I'm doing something wrong ? Maybe I'm just a wimp >
Like I asked before, please be gentle breaking in a "Sig newbie".
As you can see from this post, I am a "touch-typing fool", and words just roll of my fingertips. :smt1099
