    I have an older Sig P225 from the 80's that I really like. It is a single or double action, and a single stack. The overall look of it is just like that one you posted above without the rail. Sigs haven't changed much over the years.

    This new one though. Not sure if it would have the same feel. The shelf P320 is neat, with the modular grip options, but with the thumb safety added in on the military version, it really grabs at me. I will have to BOLO for one after they go into production.
    Well, I'd like to see what one feels like in my grubby paws also. I'm currently shopping a Beretta 92FS pretty hard. I want to shoot one.

    I assume it is hammerless as it is advertised as striker fired
    It is ironic how police departments went away from safeties (ie Glocks, Smith M&Ps, etc.) and the military requires them. The police departments had too many incidents of police drawing their gun and forgetting to swipe the safeties off and bad things happening. Sounds stupid but under stress you are only focused on what is in front of you and common everyday things are easily forgotten.

    What is hogwash? That police sometimes need to be able to shoot at a moment's notice under high stress and adrenaline and would not forget something as common as swiping the safety off? I would disagree pretty strong there. I have seen people who carried 1911's back during military service and to this day still carry and train regularly with a 1911 at the range under no stress try to pull the trigger and realize the forgot to flip the safety off. Under no stress is becomes immediately obvious what happened, when in extreme danger; cops, soldiers, etc. have been known to panic and keep trying to pull the trigger because simple, obvious tasks are not so simple or obvious during the stress of a gun fight.

    Well, I'd argue that the majority of shoots aren't at a moments notice. Overwhelming majority. And frankly, you don't have to ride with the safety on. You can leave that bad boy off all the time. Hogwash.
