In this article, I will review the SIG P320 Carry chambered in 9mm.  In addition to evaluating it in terms of Fit, Function, and Finances, I will also provide a range report on its reliability and accuracy.

A Little History

Since 1853, high quality durable products and innovation have been the hallmarks of Sig Sauer.  Known for producing the most sophisticated railway cars in Switzerland, the Swiss Wagon Factory made an ambitious move to build rifles for the Swiss Army.  After successfully winning a military contract to manufacture 30,000 Prelaz-Burnand rifles, they officially changed their name to Schweizerische Industrie-Gesellschaft (Swiss Industrial Company) or more simply: SIG.

For the next 100 years, SIG continued to manufacture small arms for the Swiss Army and Police while also expanding its product line to include  hunting and target firearms.  With their sights literally and figuratively set on … Read more »

An Alarming Trend – Women Are Shooting

Aegis Academy - Women Shooting - Alarming Trend - Steve TaraniAn Alarming Trend – Women Are Shooting 

A couple of years ago, a news reporter at a Detroit television station announced that people using guns to defend themselves from marauders may be the beginning of “an alarming trend.” Brace yourself, as the state of the Union may have further deteriorated since. In a related conversation, one of my training industry colleagues asked me if I had also noticed a similar trend – an increase of women in participation of more-than-cursory firearms training.

The answer is a resounding “yes!” The professional firearms instruction community is indeed witnessing more and more women of all demographics arming themselves in America. As a personal security educator, whose job it is to transform his clients into hard targets, this brings a tear of joy and inspired me to dig deeper. Inquiring of other professional educators plus a little snooping around the net for more detail, … Read more »

The Development of Shooting Specific Physical Skills

Train Smarter, Not harder…

Stacie Tovar, North CentralWhile physical skill development is discussed at length in training manuals for sports such as martial arts, cycling, powerlifting, and running, very little is written on how to apply periodization techniques to shooting. The application of modern training techniques in developing physical skills has massively changed the way professional athletes train. Over the years performance has massivley increased across the board. Unfortunately, those concepts have in large part eluded the vast majority of shooting enthusiasts and professional instructors. Too often the development of shooting specific physical skills is accomplished by instructors doggedly adhering to the “What I learned first, must be the best” theory. Fortunately, there is a better (or more efficient) way of developing the shooting specific skills you are looking for. The most widely known example of the principles of periodization is the workout routine known as Crossfit.

Physical skill development in any … Read more »

Domestic Violence and Guns

Everytowns’ latest work of fiction…

Aegis Academy Domestic Violence and Guns  Everytown for Gun Safety wants to ensure images of women defending themselves like the one above are a thing of the past. In his latest attempt to drum up support for his largely rejected theories about community safety, Micheal Bloomberg has started Everytown for Gun Safety. Domestic Violence and guns is the latest rallying cry. Similar to his other anti-gun organizations; Mayors Against Illegal Guns, the Bloomberg School of Public Health, and Moms Demand Action, the Bloomberg funded Everytown for Gun Safety is kicking things off with the fabrication of statistics in an attempt to perpetuate the emotional appeal that guns are bad. This time they have enlisted the help of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords who co-authored an article published by CNN titled Guns Killing Women : Time for Congress to Act.

Congresswoman Gifford, regardless of what you think of her politics, … Read more »
