    Is it Sig time ? A day at the range , Part 1

    Well , Ethan and I finally got to the range today . It's hard to pin down an active
    teenager - esp. one going to school 2 hrs from home AND with a girlfriend .

    While I packed up an assortment of handguns I had a desire to inquire as
    to whether they had a Sig P938 in their rental selection .
    And they did .

    I've been eyeing the Sig for a while and I realized that for $10 I could possibly
    road test one . I already have a few pistols that I bought on impulse that
    don't see the daylight much . So I figured it was time to do the research .

    The P938 is characterized as " a mini 1911 " . And I do love me some 1911s .

    It's even smaller than I expected . Thankfully the rental unit had the extended 7 rd mag .
    And it also had the rubber finger-grooved grips . My pinkie rested comfortably right at the
    lowest point of that grip .

    So how did it shoot ? Most excellent ! Ethan drilled out the 10 ring . I did almost as well .
    I got an excuse ....... I just can't think of it right now .

    The gun is very controllable and I didn't find it snappy , although Ethan did .
    I also found it very easy to get back on target for followup shots .

    It has an ambi thumb safety and it is darn small . I see online that you can
    swap out and use a P238 single sided safety if you prefer .

    It also has nightsights .

    No FTF or FTE or any such nonsense .

    I think I will save my lunch $$$ and get one soon .

    I have yet to see the first bad Sig. Very good quality & reasonably priced.

    I looked at them when they first came out but that small grip put the very small safety practically in the web of my hand. No way to manipulate the safety with any sort of speed or consistency
