I'm here because I just bought a Sig P229 (E29R-9-LEGION) and have already benefited from answers to questions I had. Maybe 2200 rounds shot?

Sixty-something widower with five wedlock-born kids, all moved out except for one. She wants a pink gun for her 16th birthday.

I have a 1948 Winchester model 12 shotgun from my grandfather and a couple of (1930s?) old single shot 22 rimfire rifles. I'm not a big gun guy... yet... lol.

I don't own other pistols and have no immediate intent to get another except for maybe one for my youngest daughter. I do wanna learn the pistol I've got inside-out. I am thinking about getting a rifle , maybe something like a Colt LE6920/40/44.

Illinois sucks. A lot! My work holds me here. I plan to retire in the upper peninsula of Michigan (which I hope will stay better than Illinois).

Welcome from the NW side of Chicago. If you carry, it would be smart to abide by the Cook County 10- round maximum magazine capacity restriction.
