That's exactly what I thought. I never thought a gun that looked that blocky would fit me, but like all the metal Sigs it just does.

Better luck next time I guess. There's always gun shows that you could pawn it off on someone else at. Most retailers that buy used guns will give you ~70% of the blue book on it.

Have you shot the PPS? Seems like it should be a good little gun.
It's a fact that 70 percent of the people who purchase heavier tackle do so with the categorical I just lost a huge snook! Einstein Hairdo.The other 30 percent have either Tarpon Fever or are sporting a hand cramped into a claw from a deepwater grouper.

Have you seen the PPS slimline? After I pick up a Kimber that's what I'm getting. Real nice gun. I didn't used to like the H&K style mag release until I learned how it's meant to be used, and now I like it a lot.

I have a PT92AF and I love it. Have shot thousands of rounds through it and have had to failure to feeds with that cheap crap blazer ammo. I have cleaned it twice in the 18 years I have owned it and it still will unload the clip as fast as I can slap the trigger. I load my own ammo now so the feed issue won't be one plus I can heat them up a little with a heavier slug. I can't speak for all makes but my Taurus has given and continues to give good reliable service.

if you can find one, the H&K P7 sounds like a good choice for you. VERY reliable, although a little pricey. If that doesn't fit your fancy, check out the Kel-tec P9.
