    Military service will sometimes get you off a jury. There were 3 of us that got bumped from a murder trial. I never figured out why but I was happy to get cut loose.

    Yep, I have both. I also have Sig P series and a few colt 1911's. I'd say the reliability factor is what sucked me in.

    I never could figure out why the P-30 isn't more popular. Is it the trigger?

    I have one but it's the defiled V-1 LEM so I can't really compare it to a normal P-30 trigger. I hear they aren't that...

    My question would be at what range do we expect to use these SBS's. I would think open sights would be all one would need out to 40 yards. Open sights are so much faster and rib/bead is even faster.
