So I was sitting at work yesterday, avoiding my actual job, when I started browsing craigslist as I sometimes do. I stumbled upon an ad titled “Sig”. I rarely see anything on craigslist that I’m interested in but being in to guns, I had to see what was inside.
Up for sale was a Sig Sauer 1911-22 with an extra mag, extra handguards, and 200 rounds of 22lr ammo. And it was priced extremely well. I wanted it.
I mentioned it to a co-worker and how I was worried about meeting someone from craigslist in person. He laughed and said, “that’s a friend of mine! He really wants to sell that thing, you should call him, his name is Bradley”. Its amazing how small the world really is . . .
I gave him a call and we agreed to meet at the FedEx office (I had to pick up a package there anyway) on my lunch break. I made sure to bring cash with me. Knowing he really wanted to sell it and because I worked with a friend of his, I was able to talk him down about $25 more from what he was asking.
It a fantastic weapon. I took it to the range after work, along with my Ruger SR22, and put the two head to head. A post in the next few days will compare my performance with both and discuss the differences between them.
