Hi I'm Steve from Ellicott City, MD and I've been a long-time reader of this forum.

I have been a hunter & shooter for 30+ years.
So has my wife who was actually the one to get me into hunting & shooting.

I always make sure I stop by the SIG booth at the major shows such as the Great American Outdoor Show held in Harrisburg, PA.

My current SIG inventory includes:
-A pair of SIG P229 elite stainless
-A pair of SIG P220 match stainless elite
-One SIG 516 patrol

I particularly like service rifle competition but that's obviously not with the SIGs.

I use the P229's for personal defense at home and wherever I'm allowed to carry.
The 516 is also a personal defense firearm which we also took hunting with us on a recent successful hunt for feral hogs. It's a fine rifle for hunting with the right ammo.

The P220's are my next project. I would like to become a better pistol shooter; maybe get good enough to compete with the P220's. Toward that end I'm working on upgrading the sights on the P220's with help from AmerigunUSA.

I was paid to develop software for commercial & military satellites but I've been retired for almost 2 years.

I'm more of a reader than a writer: I would rather be quiet and thought the fool rather than open my mouth and remove all doubt. Smile
But hopefully I'll be able to contribute!
Steve

Indeed! She was the dairy farmer's daughter who grew up deer hunting and riding horses when farm chores & school allowed. I was the city kid who didn't grow up around guns at all.

Welcome to the forum from North Carolina. Before moving here a couple of years ago, I spent nearly 30 years in Olney in MoCo, so I know MD a little....

Cool, Those P220s are like potato chips (can't have just one?) as they seem to multiply gradually.

Welcome to the forum from Georgia.

You really were in the thick of things living in Olney.
We're planning on moving to High Rock lake or one of the other lakes nearby once the wife retires - maybe in a year or two.

Welcome from flyover country. I've got family in the Hagerstown area, but I've never lived there.

As I tell all newbies, feel free to talk about any make of firearm, we embrace diversity!
