    Picked up the P226 .357 finally yesterday and got to pump about 2 boxes through it real quick (don't mind the range ammo in pic) I have to say it fires a lot smoother than expected, to compare it to ones I've shot I'd say it's like the F92S with a bit more kick. Here's some Pic porn...

    Congrats, I have the same gun but with black slide and in 9mm. It's a great gun :bigthumb:

    Get some grips for it too, it's well worth the $

    This is the one I posted that my best friend I got into shoot was looking at and he's planning on getting the Crimson Trace for it.

    I'm pretty settled that I want a M&P .45 but I might get the M&P Compact or even the new Beretta PX4 Compact so it's more concealable and get the .45 later..

    It's a .357..you can change the barrel to the 40 but why when the 357 is gonna do more? Plus he wanted something big not a 9.

    Nice, my buddy has a 229 in .40, great gun to shoot, but im not big on the SA/DA trigger, i dont like all the creep in SA mode, but it still shoots really good, and you definatly get used to it.
