  1. Yes, I have never seen that model before today. This may be a hidden gem.
  2. Welcome to TN. With the exception of close family and friends that I take to the range occasionally, I generally train law enforcement that work for my agency and cadets that come though the local police academy. I have no clue where to even send people around your parts. It’s not the best time to get into handloading. It may be worth it for someone doing it for precision rifle loads, but not worth it for high volume, common caliber pistol loads.
  3. This is not what you want to hear. The Gold Dot 357sig has long had a reputation for not feeding well in Glocks. That has not been my experience, but it has been reported enough that I tend to believe it to be actual experiences. I know THP mostly used Remington in their Glock 31 and Glock 33. I never heard of any ammo related failures in the Sig p226, p229, or p239.
  4. I have shot a lot of 357Sig in duty sized weapons and carried one on duty for a very short period. I will say this, the 357Sig round has got to be the most accurate round I have ever shot in duty size pistol platforms. I have heard others say the same who have had extensive time with the 357 Sig cartridge. Yes, I shot tighter groups with a Glock in 357Sig and tighter groups with a Sig in 357Sig over their 9mm counterparts. However, there was always a slight bit more recoil with the 357Sig, but it didn’t effect accuracy. I don’t believe I ever thought it was as snappy as some people say 40S&W feels to them, but I don’t find 40S&W hard to shoot. The 357Sig always gave you the worst features of the 9mm with the worst features of the 40s&w. You get 40S&W capacity with .355-.356 diameter bullet. You don’t even get the cheap ammo advantage both 40 and 9mm offer. If you are a hand loader, the bottle neck 357 case is a little bit more difficult to handle. Nowadays, I wouldn’t bother with handloading 9, 40, or 357 Sig. I would just practice with factory made 9 or 40 in the appropriate barrel. I have not seen a single 357sig come through the local police academy since I have been instructing over the last two years. We do have a couple of small local agencies still using the 357sig in SE TN, or we did the last time I heard. The Chattanooga Housing Authority officers still have Glock 31, but there are plans to go to 9mm in the next two years. I know Meigs County and Decatur had 357sig Glocks the last time I asked, but this is roughly 60 officers total between the three agencies. The TWRA is also planning a transition to 9mm Glocks. I believe they, unlike THP, are going to do a pistol optic at the same time.
  5. I have a lot of the knives mentioned like the BM Bailout and a Spyderco Enduro 4. If I were buying knives all over again my first purchase would be a Buck 110 slim. It’s about a 3.75 inch blade and weighs about 2.8 oz. It’s also a $32 knife nowadays. Bucks 420 heat treated steel is equivalent to a lot of steel costing three times as much.
  6. No, the 12 rounds are way too short. It’s possible someone could make an adapter like the 10round magazines run to work in the xl module.
  7. I have heard, from a very reliable source, that 17 round magazines should be available around Christmas. Apparently there is an issue cranking out enough for the firearms that have been produced. This has happened before with Sig magazines. Grip modules should be available around the same time, and we may see combo packaging where you buy a grip module and magazine(s) together.
  8. The 15 round magazines are actually a little longer. This is one of the original Sig sleeves trimmed to fill the gap.
  9. This is a 17 round magazine in a Wilson Combat p365xl frame.
  10. My 365XL didn’t get that message. In fact, I have already modified 15 round XL mags to work in the Macro frame.
  11. Even at 400 it’s the cheapest used p365 I have ever seen. You can’t hardly by just the upper and mags for $400.
  12. Everyone, please send Wilson Combat an email requesting the Macro grip.
