Didn't know you could get talk to Tex, that may help translate to someone from there. In the Midwest we find talk to text will normally screw up what you are trying to say about 99% of the time. But your talk to Tex may exceed that. I really like the new iPhone voicemail that translates the message into totally bizarre text that is nowhere close to what was said or meant. Steve Jobs ghost must be laughing his head off.

The gun you actually shoot is better than the one in the corner that you don't, and I just have no use for a rifle any more. It's a nice rifle, but it pretty much stays in the corner. I do however need another handgun. I plan on taking it to the range and practicing and having fun with it a lot. Already have a bulldog that I love. I'm debating whether to take the plunge and get a good full sized auto for home defense, self defense, etc. I am totally new to autos, never even fired one before. But they're practical and have large capacity which I like. If I did go auto, I'm leaning towards a SA/DA like a Beretta as opposed to a Glock, but I do like Glock's reputation. But they're so damn ugly. I really don't like all polymer guns. Other side of the coin...I love revolvers and have shot them many times and feel completely at ease with them. I have a Bulldog that I love, but I prefer Single Actions (although I wouldn't turn down a nice Model 29). But as much as I'd love a Vaquero in 45 colt, it's not the most practical or tactical defensive weapon, although I have no doubt in my ability to use it, having done so many times before. So should I spend roughly 5-600 bucks on a nice Beretta or Sig, for a first auto, or go with a nice Single Action Vaquero or Ulberti, that I'd love shooting, but might not fill all the tactical niches?
Using Tapatalk and the new version apparently has a bug. If there's a picture below, please ignore it. I didn't intentionally add it.

Now to your question. Post #2 is exactly the advice I'd give you. Sig is hard to go wrong with. I have a P238 that I love. That new 9mm is a very nice gun. Go for one with night sights, though they might be standard. Sigs night sights are the best I've ever seen in any lighting.
