Gander Mountain has had good deals on firearms recently. That's where I picked up my AR.
How long have you had your Glock? I have had the Sigma just over 3 months so I hope to eventually get to 6k myself. Glocks have been on the market for considerable more time than the Sigma also so I would say that they would have the majority of the market share. No one said that the Glock wasn't a superior weapon and hasn't proven itself through the test of time. What I said was just because you love the Glock is no reason to put every other gun down. If that wasn't the case then you would've said for a 100.00 more you can get a Sig or some other gun. All Glock people do the exact same thing, suggest the one gun that they feel is superior to all other weapons on the planet, a GLOCK. Furthermore, the fact that you abuse your gun by firing it 6k times without cleaning it doesn't impress me. It tells me that you want to teach bad habits to new gun owners in an attempt to prove how reliable one gun is over another. He should clean his gun after each tirip to the range. Do you take a bath every 6k days? I'm sure you could go that long but it isn't advisable. opcornThe funny thing is they always say it will fail on you but out of all the forums I have been on I have not seen one bonafide post where someone said that their Sigma failed them in a defensive situation.
Perhaps that's because you don't see that many people carrying sigma's to begin with, coupled with the fact most civilians won't be involved in a SD situation where they'll use a firearm to begin with.
Can you cite any examples of any sigma's being used in a SD situation where that gun was used? I couldn't find any in a search on the net myself, perhaps you can cite any example of one even being used in that role.
I have put 1500 rounds through my Sigma and have had no issues whatsoever.
That's good to know, congratulations on getting one that runs well. Now, when your sigma can run 6K+ between cleanings regularly without a malf and gets to 97K+ rounds without one function problem I'll be very impressed. 1500 rds though your sigma? Using 1.5K through a gun in an attempt to prove reliability doesn't impress those who can run 6 times that through a glock without cleaning it regularly.
The Sigmas are being issued to the Iraqi police------ they aren't carried by any LE agency in this country that I know of presently, however the glock owns 80% of the LE market here in the US.
That speaks volumes if you take the time to listen.
