Most people call their first finger next to the thumb, the index finger or pointer finger.

My daughter today, sitting at a restaurant while we waited to get our order and she goes, "My trigger finger has a sore on it."

Umm...

I’m stoked. I’ve been waiting for the 357 Sig conversion barrel that I ordered months ago for my XDM to ship and I received notification today that it’s finally on its way.

The Springfield XDM?

I haven't bought anything in like 3 weeks, starting to feel like a crack addict going thru withdrawals

Yeah. I have it in 40 S&W and never bought the conversion barrel for whatever reason. And, of course, when I want one….well, fucking Covid happens and everything sells out.

I ordered a ported barrel. I know that it means I’ll need to clean it more often, but the recoil reduces to a bare minimum.

I hear you. Other than a very high end Nighthawk, I think my next buy will either be a Ruger 57 or the Sig P320 XFive Legion.

I've been really close to buying the FN 57 but the Ruger is def being considered too

I’ve been looking at both of them. The FN is a lot more expensive, but I like them both. The ammo is absurdly overpriced, though.
I have half a case of the stuff at the house, and I am using that as an excuse to buy the Ruger. Soon as I get off the rig, that will happen. Should work wonders on pigs. Definitely do better than a 9mm anyway.

You ain't kidding, my brother managed to get quite a bit from a friend of his who sold off a bunch of stuff so I can get least a few hundred rounds from him at a decent price

I was dumbfounded as to how expensive that ammo is. Many of you guys know that I have properties in both Dallas and L.A., and the cheapest that I’ve seen that ammo in gun shops (TX or CA) was like $55 a box and $80 for hollow points. It’s a bit cheaper online, but not much.

Yeah 5.7 is one of the rounds I haven't seen a sale on in a long time. If I catch one on ammoseek I'll post it asap

I found 5.7x28mm ammo at a gun store today for $48/50rds. That’s the cheapest I’ve seen it for a good while.
