My first pistol - Sig P320 VTAC
I am a novice shooter and did a lot of research before deciding to buy the Sig P320 VTAC. Prior to purchasing the pistol, I went to a range several times with my cousin who is an avid shooter for most of his adult life. He taught me the basics of shooting and gun safety and I got some experience shooting various guns in multiple calibers from .22, 9mm, .45 acp and .357. I also shot an MPP AR-15 but I don't remember what caliber. Among his pistols, I shot S&Ws 9mm, .45 & .357 and Glock 9mm.
I performed best with his Glock but I was'nt a fan of the gun itself. I didn't like the way his S&Ws felt in my hand and I wasn't thrilled with their trigger on the 9mm.
What originally led to me to try a Sig was hearing that they marginally beat out Glock for the Military contract. I figured that I tried the Glock, why not try a Sig I rented a P320 full size from the range and I shot as well as I did with the Glock but I liked the way it felt in my hand more. It just fits in my hand better.
Now, onto the VTAC.
The Day/Night Sights are great. I hope never to have to use the night sights or it means I have an intruder in the house. I am fairly accurate within 7 yards with paper targets at the range to the head and chest. Probably means nothing in the real world under duress. I have shot a total of 250 rounds with this pistol so far with no sighting issues. It is an accurate pistol even for a novice like myself. I have shot less than 2,000 rounds of ammo since I started shooting in October of 2019. No misfires, no jams, and fired fine out of the box.
I love the two-tone color scheme and VTAC engravings on the frame. The grip feels great and the gun fits in my hand perfectly. The gun has a solid feel but I don't feel like I'm carrying a sledgehammer like a stainless steel S&W .357. The pistol has good balance and weight feel to it.
I know I could have spent far less money for a gun but I didn't want to regret it just save a few hundred bucks and then waste time searching for a better gun. I got it right the first time and am really happy with this pistol.
