Here we can better view the expansion chamber within the compensator. This behaves more effectively than ported barrels and barrel mounted compensators.

...and some SOG knives. Top to bottom: Seal Pup, Seal Team, Tigershark...all made in Seki, Japan. Tigershark shows finish scuffs because one of the treasonous Jr Fusters snagged it from my desk top and hacked at a tree stump. The Sig is sporting the Hogue grips.

This image shows the slide cycled. Note the bull barrel and the sight relationship. Some folks make their own 220 Sport by adding the muzzle brake/compensator to a standard 220 with an extended barrel. However one can always spot a re-creation because the front sight is dovetailed onto the slide and not the compensator.

The bayonet is a Swiss make that I use on my Benelli shot gun.

Thanks man. If you ever find yourself in the SLC area and have a few minutes, we'll go shoot it.

There's nothing wrong with hacking at stumps with knives fuster that's one of the things they are for... some folks make good money carving stumps into art and statues and they all had to start some place... now if the jr. fuster in question had their own knife[s] they would not have had to "borrow" daddy's...

good discussion guys, great pix of some really nice arms. my iron is rather old, high standards 'victor' from my competition days, s&w model 66 4" and s&w model 29 6". ive always wanted the 1911, nostalga maybe! reading about the sig has given me options.

one of the guys i used to shoot with, had a sig, cant remember model etc but it was 9mm and i had the opportunity to shoot it. it handled well, very smooth, easy mag changes for the size of it.

fink, make that sub-forum already!

Hehe. You're right. He does have his own, but the grass is always greener.

It is comfy. I've never had anyone ask if I was carrying...and I carry pretty much everywhere (except work). You just can't see the pistol (which is the point) .

Here's my HS just for kicks. A tad rare nowadays with the XD in full swing. That was my AZ CCW, which is still good, but I now have one in WA (which was WAY easier and cheaper to obtain). Go figure.

interesting holster, i am loooking for one that doesn't buldge on skinny guys like me. So far the only thing that works is a belly holster but i would rather one that is closer to my wallet so that it would be easier to draw and catch a crook off guard if needed.

I'm not sure what you consider skinny, but I'm about 6' and 185lbs with a 33" waist. Anyway, Crossbreed is one option for you, among many.

Fink, where do you go shooting around here, any special place? I usually wind up down at Ozark Sportsmans supply... If you ever need anyone to go shoot with let me know...Im always down to shoot money down range, when I have time.

Well lets just say that slightly skinnier at:

6'2" and 163lb

The worst part is that i usually wear cloths that are light and airy but they also show a buldge easily.

All the holsters I have tied so far except the belly holster are fairly noticable, at least more then i like.

Honestly haven't had time to even propose the idea, but I will and hopefully it won't get veto'd.

I think the only thing that makes me hesitant about that holser is the size of it.
Looks like you'd be sticking a manilla folder down your pants (for the lack of a better analogy of course).

Well I work for the Rogers Police/Fire Department and we have our own range (outdoor) that I can use any time when the daylight is adequate.
However lately I have been ponying up the $8 to go shoot at Ozark Sportsman.

We should definitley go shoot sometime, where in NWA are you

Psh, you think you're skinny?

How about 6' 220lbs!
I'm more braun than anything but I've got me a belly - does help hide holsters though.

You might look into the Galco one that eluded to earlier on in the thread.
I know several officers that are similar in size that carry it off-duty with no problems at all.
