    I’m with ‘Bone, my defensive guns need a stiffer trigger than my fun range guns.

    Same with me, I just knew in my heart I had to have a P220 SAS. Gorgeous, just had to have one. BUT, it didn't work for me. Mostly that safety/decocker sweep was just too much and a grip like a Desert Eagle. There was another one, slipping my mind now that I knew I had to have but the minute I picked it up, I didn't like it. Too big, too clunky controls. I didn't buy either one so didn't have to add them to the toy box, I don't sell or trade much.

    Just remembered HK USP.

    I got rid of my P227 full size. Between the big grip and the long slide it was not my cup of tea. But my 227 SAS, which is about 3/4" shorter with the same grip is fine and in fact it's become my wintertime goto. Something about 11 shots of .45 on hand that just makes me feel comfortable. I guess that I don't mind a handful of gun, so long as it's not yardstick long. I've never owned a 1911 government and probably won't but a Commander with standard grips is very comfortable to me. The P239 is a single stack with a 3.6" barrel, so it's not a lot of gun to hold onto, or hide.

    I had an opportunity to pick up a USP in .40. Nice and smooth like an H&K but once again, a bit too stout in the grip dept. also. My P2SK is a notch down in size, which is probably why I like it. I would prefer a grip to be a bit large, rather than too thin. Too thin and you get too much movement, and you have to use a death grip.

    I found the grips on my P2K and P2KSK to be a tad too thin, and coupled with the fact that I wanted some other guns more I traded them both off. Since then I've discovered the P30 family and love them with their 3 sets of backstraps and side panels. Twenty seven combinations to fit most any hand. You gotta love the options we have these days!

    Hogue does make thinner grips for them...both G10 and aluminum material. Also on the P220's they make a THIN stock plastic OE grip. Makes a big difference.

    Aluminum grips on a Sig are nice as long as you never wear your gun when the temp is below 40°

    I just found 200 rounds of 41 mag as I was routing around. I've never had a 41 mag. I guess I best start looking for one. 4 boxes of factory 41 mag, that's a gold mine.
    Maybe I can find an old Ruger, love my 44's, had a 357 that my daughter got.

    Let the search begin.

    If there was ever a good reason to buy a new gun Colonel, especially in these days of ammo shortages and ever higher prices, you've found it. I might try to use that myself
