I carry a 9mm, but I tell my girlfriend it is a 45. Good video.

I have a .177 Caliber air rifle that shoots 1200 FPS and dang, based off what it can do to a varmit.... I have a new respect for air rifles...

I also have a regular revolver and it is nice and helpful to have just in case of home invasion etc...

Sherlock Holmes said the only thing he feared was “air guns”.

He was speaking of the really powerful .45 or .50 caliber ones. A pre charged pneumatic with a silencer in one of those calibers would be an excellent assassins weapon at fairly close range. They are already quiet and with a silencer would be about completely silent.

A Sig P230 is very similar in both size and power to the Walther PP or PPK. It is more modern and has an easier hammer drop but basically about the same thing.

I can’t imagine why anyone would want to enumerate publicly what weapons they own, especially when we know Hussein’s corrupt government is watching.

This newbie votes .357 magnum, mainly because I’m on the lookout for a clean S&W model 66 for my first handgun, and also because my ancient Mac won’t play the video so I’m not quite sure what the real subject is...

I don't mind talking in the open.

Dear NSA,

I carry a cell phone with 9-1-1 on speed dial. I know that guns are bad. I know that self-defense is bad. I know that if I shoot a criminal, even to save my own life, I'll get the George Zimmerman treatment. It is much better to wait for the police to take my report in 10 to 30 minutes than it would be to take the law into my own hands at 1400 fps. That is why I don't mind the boating accident that left me with no scary weapons.

Why I was asking is the Sig web site doesn’t show a P230...I have several Sig firearms.

Thanks, I sometimes post on an airgun site. There is at least one guy on it who shoots buffalo with an airgun, actually much more powerful than that one.

Yes, it does, but the sights are almost non-existent and the barrel very short, so its accuracy is inherently inferior. A laser sight will help some.

Its accuracy is very good, even with a short barrel and crappy sights.

Obviously it wasn`t made for shooting at any kind of distance, it is simply a conceal carry weapon for personal protection.

I looked at several handguns in its category and for the money it was handsdown the best of them all, IMO.

I did pick up a laser for mine, going to try it out wednesday.

The P230 preceeded the P232.
