    I went and spent the money I could have used to replace my iPad and Macbook on four pistols plus accessories. Yep, I got the pistol bug. I started out buying one just to have in the house just in case. Then I became interested three other pistols that I had to have. I've never been a fan of all the gun nuts we have in America and now I have become one - go figure. Sorry Apple maybe 2017.

    Okay, I'll load three daytime tomorrow 2/1. I want to retake photos with serial numbers not exposed. The fourth I don't have yet as it should arrive at my local FFL on Tuesday for transfer. I can name them however: Springfield XD 9 Mod2 Sub-Compact 9MM, Walther PPQ M2 9MM, 4", Walther PPS M2 9MM, and in transit Sig Sauer P229 Legion .40 S&W. The Sig was an impulse purchase. After seeing it I had to have it.

    A Patriots fan and a gun nut. Let's go for the trifecta.

    I would imagine there are emergency meetings at Apple HQ following this thread going live.

    You could always use the pistols to acquire Apple products this year if you wanted?

    I used to have a PPK 380. It was compact without that compact feeling.

    I like your choices. I'm looking to purchase one in the near future. Trying to decide whether to go with a full size or something I can carry with me.

    Well, what can I say. I moved to Georgia. I gotta fit in down here you know. There is one City here, Kennesaw, Ga, has a law on the books that every citizen in the City "must have a gun" - I sh*t you not.

    Nice pic. How do you like the P229 Legion? I used to have a Sig P226 and really liked it.

    I don't have it yet - picking it up tomorrow at FFL. Actually, the gun is the same as the old P229. The name "Legion" is all marketing. Aesthetically, the gun is beautiful. A friend has one.

    Fellow Georgian here. I also happen to live in Kennesaw. It gets a bad rap on the internet, but what is kinda funny is that we actually have one of the lowest murder rates in the country. I think there has only been 1 fatal shooting here in the past 20 years or something.

    Also a gun nut and mac lover myself.

    Ummm....not quite. The Legion series is not the "old" 229. The Legion models carry an upgraded trigger, polished internals, rounded corners to reduce snagging, etc. While you might upgrade your other guns, there is little to nothing you should ever need to do to get the Legion to get it running like a dream. It's priced higher to account for that, yet is still produced enough to be considered a mass produced firearm.

    TTAG and a few others might aptly consider it to be the Apple of the handgun world.

    I wasn't dumping on Kennesaw but when I moved to Georgia in 2006 and read about Kennesaw's ordnance my reaction was WTF. You see I'm from Massachusetts, need I say more.
