I hope you like it:) I have to admit that me and little .40 guns have never gotten along, but lots of folks love them. Make sure we get a range report!

I have the .40 sc blue, its a great gun, and tough as nails, I agree the accuracy is very good for a small barrel too. Nice choice!

My sc cam in today. I got a call from some kid at the shop telling me that the .40sc only came with 2 9round mags.:shock: Well i new better but he insisted that he knew more then me about it sense he had it right there.
1st he said it only come with 2 9round mags from the factory and there is no 12rnd mags. made.:roll:
2nd he seize o sense this is NY they only allow 9rd mags:roll:
I tell him that the NY one comes with 1 9rnd and 1 10rnd full size mag.
well he didn't know what to say and just said that i can come pick it up today.:roll:
I tell him that i doubt that my paper work came from Albany yet sense it took 3 weeks on my other 2 handguns.
Well i figured i better go in and see for my self. I got 2 more weeks be for the paper work comes so i want to take care of this be for i pick it up.
I go in and yes it did come with a 10rnd instead of the 12rd but they have ordered my 12rnd and will swap it out.
So if your a LEO and your in NY Springfield will send a 10rd, don't worry but make sure the shop knows to swap it out.

My sister works as a manager at a hotel right off the thruway. She works 4-12 and some times 12-8. She should be armed. Nut jobs come in there at night all the time. I worry about her all the time so $500 is well worth it.

After retiring--I now consider myself a "hippie". Hair/beard is long, off-duty wear consists of "anything that just might be/could be clean, jeans/boots and an assortment of old od mil-issue jackets". I'm quick to flash a piece sign...and offer a hand to someone who is down and out. But I am still armed to the teeth 24/7.

Pierce grip extentions, well worth the money, I have five mags set up, two extended, two with pierce extentions and the stock short mag for deeper concealment, but one of the others is always in my back jeans pocket. The little extentions are worth they're weight in gold. I have a blued 40 sub with about 600 rds thru it,lol, last time at the range, out shot two young bucks with service glocks,lol. Ticked them off and they left. They take some getting used to and don't really break in till about 300 rds, then they settle down nicelly. I purchased and installed night sights myself and love them. I think next is a better trigger. You'll love the sub, mine has never failed me. Good thinking and good purchase!
