New female handgunner needs help
My ex-husband had a Sig P220 I remembered shooting and loving. It was all stainless steel looking. My girlfriend who shoots with me ( she let's me shoot her guns) has let me take her Glock 19 home, for long peroids of time. She is a Glock fanatic, and swears by them owning several. She knows I live alone and scare easily. Anyway, I found out that I like the 9mm caliber over the .45. I can shoot it better ( More control) I guess the official term is.
The the Glock is sooo light. [I] I like solid steel guns.[/I] Remembering the P220, I liked the weight and feel of the grip. So I decided to order a Sig model P226 9mm. Not the stainless, but the regular black one with some kind of rail. My first gun! Was $850.00 a good price?
I could have gotten two Glock 19's!
Anyway, here are my questions. One thing I noticed about the Glock 19, was that it had a plastic guide rod. How cheap is that! Does the new P226 have a metal guide rod? No one is open today, and I forgot to ask. I Imagine I'll be asking you guys a lot of stuff in the future. Which is why I decided to join this internet site. So, a plastic guide rod or metal one?
Also, I use Remington oil on the Glock she let me use. I see it in my local gun store, and even at Wall Mart. I'm returning the Glock to Sara this week. Is this the oil I should use on the P226 also?
