Throughout 2017 I was on a quest to find the right mix of guns. Both for range use and for regular carry. After spending more than I want to admit and going through a year of buying and selling I came to a few realizations. First, I prefer to carry as much gun as is comfortable and; Second, I like a change from time to time. I finally settled on the P320 as my go to EDC and have the ability to carry it in 9mm, .40, SIG 357 or 45. For the most part all in the same holster. So that out of the way I looked to the fact that I like to carry a 1911 from time to time as well. So this got me pretty settled on carrying either SAO or striker. My lone hold out from this theory is my Sig P229 SAS Gen II in SIG 357. THe interesting thing I also observed was that of all the 45’s I tried I kept coming back to the P320 for its 10 round capacity and light weight. It is a very soft shooter as well and very controllable. I had quite a few different types of 45’s through the year and aside from the P320 the other observation I made is, when it comes to 45 ACP it is truly very hard to beat the 1911. I know not everyone is a 1911 fan, but when you compare carrying an 8 round 45, which lets face it they mostly are all 8 round guns, the 1911 really is just about the best out there to carry. I even find myself opting for it over the P320 with 10 rounds because I like carrying it so much. Yes, I got a bit better an lighter version in commander length (Dan Wesson Guardian). Taking a nice slim 1911 Commander with an extra mag is really quite comfortable and with just a little practice I have found few that do not shoot the 1911 well. All in all a good year. Now, as I noted elsewhere, on to 2018 and getting to be a much better shooter.
