So, I have been a died in the wool DA/SA hammer fired guy from the get-go. Having owned just about everything SIG and Beretta make, along with a few others, I never thought I would even own a striker fired gun.

Mid last year I finally succumbed and picked up a P320 and found myself falling in love with it. I was, at the time, typically carrying either my highly modified Beretta PX4 Storm Compact or my P229C.

After getting the 320 I began carrying and shooting it more and more, really getting hooked on the consistent trigger pull and the modularity.

Not long after I picked up an RX model and a Carry .45 to compliment my Carry .357. A member was letting his 9mm Compact go so I got that too along with a few other grip goodies and a .40 barrel. I built a case and now have quite a lot of variability in this platform along with spare parts. I also added Gray Guns triggers to my Carry and RX versions (both curved and straight face triggers).

So now I am actually contemplating getting rid of my remaining DA/SA's (except for that highly modified PX4, I will keep that forever). I am thinking about this total switch to focus on constantly training with a single manual of arms.

Anyhow, just thought I would throw this up here and get you guys thoughts.

Sounds to me like a wise plan. I've tried to warm up to the DA/SA trigger system, just can't (or should I say not willing to) do it. I prefer the same manual of arms on my defensive handguns.

Go ahead and switch to the 320 for carry and training; that's what I've done.

But don't get rid of your DA/SA guns unless you genuinely need the cash. I still enjoy shooting mine, I have just moved in a different direction for defensive purposes.

Yea, I don't see me ever getting rid of the German 228. It the PX4 and a custom 92FS Compact will remain with me. I would, primarily, be getting rid of the 229c a M9A3 and a custom 96FS.

There is a great deal to be said for one manual of arms and consistency in trigger pull. Go with you feel most comfortable with. I have had Xds and everything else DA/SA and finally got rid of the XD as it was just getting used as a nightstand gun.

Don't.

Just put them away and forget about them for now. After the "new" wears off, you will wish you had kept them.
Very smart person. :cool:

Unless you really don't like a particular firearms don't sell it if you can afford to hold onto it.

that's why i changed over from da/sa sigs to a g3 g30.
Okay, I've given up on getting it free, after waiting at the mailbox every day for several months, all for naught. Does that mean you are going to finally sell me (inexpensively) that pretty P229 SSS you were supposed to be sending me to insure you continued health after I threatened you with bodily harm and all manner of violence visited upon your scrawny little body if you did not . . . and then you shunned me, huh, does it? Huh?:confused::rolleyes::)

Variety is a good thing. I mean you wouldn't want to be stuck with the same woman all of your life, would you?





Seriously, sticking with one platform for training and primary carry or defensive use is a great idea. But having something a little different as an occasional change of pace just to play with at the range or to remind you why you switched platforms in the first place is never a bad thing.

I think I've done that consolidating for uniformity thing twice...Didn't work out for me. I'm in the hold onto them camp, unless you're sick of guns and dumping everything you own...in which case you should still keep the 228.

Just recently switched over to the 320 and striker fire. Love the 320 so much that had to buy a compact model for carry. I never thought I'd convert. The two 320s were all I took to the range the last four times out. My C3 that I've carried for years was last shot the first time I took the 320 to the range. First weeks of idleness since it's purchase. I'd never dream of selling.... ANYTHING. I learned that there will always come a time I will want a sold gun back. But, they are definitely going to see a lot of safe time going forward.
