I do, I've been reading a lot, and watching a lot of videos about the Howa in the Bravo chassis.

I have decided I'm not doing anything until i attend of participate in a match.

SIG made these, not Sig. SIG has never made garbage. And technically, the 550 is SAN/Swiss Arms not that SIG has sold the company

Sig is SIG on my phone.

Anyway, the 550 was back when quality mattered. I appluad your sense of taste (except that whole beretta 92 fetish you have).

You have more patience than I!

They are absolutely gorgeous with the wood grips. An 88 is definitely on my bucket list as well, right next to a Hi Power

Also, waiting for my permit amendment so I can go pick up my firearm is THE WORST. But at least I'm one of the lucky ones that gets no restrictions.

Sorry, I don't understand the question. A good belt is basically a requirement for carrying most guns in my experience. Lately I tend to use single clip kydex holsters but admittedly have been lazy about carrying more often than I should.

That does not sound like fun. What are you picking up? Tomorrow I'll go pick up my new AK WASR underfolder...love the platform, have wanted an underfolder, and I finally bit the bullet and ordered one last week.

Father in law gave me this pretty sweet gift. Dated to about 1971 or so. I replaced the grips, have the orginals.



Thought you gunners would enjoy. I find it really easy to shoot accurately, and it has very little muzzle flip or recoil. Very nice.

A paddle holster is an OWB holster that has a large paddle shaped piece of plastic that fits down along your leg which eliminates the need for a belt.

Picking up a P320 XFive.

I always wanted a hi power. At one point he showed me a picture of his small gun collection. He is from Montana, so it was a couple of wood stocked shotguns, a rifle or two, a western style revolver, and this hi power. I made a comment about the hi power, and I guess he remembered! I was thrilled. The crazy old bat just threw it in the mail in an unmarked USPS box and shipped it to me directly. Got lucky I guess!

I'm familiar with paddle holsters but personally wouldn't want to carry much of anything without a belt. I don't really think they negate the need for a belt.

You definitely still need a solid belt for a paddle holster. The paddle supports it laterally but not vertically, that's what the belt is for. I was in a shop last week talking to a guy behind the counter. He had a Sig TacOps in a bladetech paddle holster and was complaining about how it carried. I looked and he had a crappy belt similar to the ones that come with cargo shorts. You could see it flexing and straining to even support his pants. Are you looking for a holster to carry the xfive?

I’ll probably only actually carry it at the range. I’m not gonna attempt to ccw a 5” barrel. To be honest, the only reason I really went that direction was because I assumed I would get target/hunting restrictions. I’m going to have to go shopping for something a bit more compact. Which isn’t really a BAD thing.

He put it a lot better than I could...but yeah, a good belt makes a big difference.

My most carried guns are a Glock 26 and 43. I have a lot of Glock 19s and would prefer to carry them more but the seats in my car kill my back if I carry anything with a longer grip than a 26/43.

Since it's a 320 you could always get a compact grip module and different slide. My brother in law just picked up an Xfive. I could do a holster for it if you're interested.

I shoot firearms with varying regularity, but the gun I shoot every week is an air rifle. It also has by far the most actual varmint kills. Dozens of rats, chipmunks, and squirrels. Althought lately I give the squirrels a break because it is too easy. The Nikon EFR close focus scope is perfect for this thing. Any airgun shooters or is this thread only for guns that go bang?



I live in the city, in close quaters, and this is the quietest most lethal airgun I have ever seen. It doesnt phase my close neighbors and it shoots a dandelion off its stalk at 100 ft. Really amazing weapon IMO.
