    the P45 has grown on me. it's certainly made me appreciate a good out-of-the-box trigger.

    until i start reloading .45, the main feeling i get from shooting the Grand Power is how quickly it lightens my wallet.

    I wonder if the 45 Grand power fucks brass as much as the 9mm version

    Latest model sig competition series X5 and X6 are modular in you can upspeck the various models from production right through to open divisions ipsc or action. They certainly look the shiz, at a typical pay what you get price, that's if you can even get hold of one. There are aftermarket trigger kits to get best out of them but also hard to get out of the state's.
    Living in NZ for a competition pistol you really need to go with something with parts availability or at minimum buy two of same pistol, which is 1911 frame really, STI, Les Baer above are good competition pistols.

    Yes, then you end up back the full circle of glocks, xdms, M &P' s, CZ's, 1911's, Tangfolio now.
    I was really keen on an X5, put it in the too hard and too expensive basket.
