    Just wanted to share this.

    My best bud is an avid shooter and we chat daily during my 30 minute commute to the salt mine about many things but typically a day doesn't pass when the topic of guns isn't brought up. I guess I might mention Steyr's enough that he laughingly said its like Im trying to convert him from HK, CZ, Sig etc.

    I found this pic and tweaked it to fit that narrative and sent it to him.

    Do you find yourself acting like a Steyr advocate at times?

    357SIG is a loud round and it's not hard to have a people or two look over at my lane to see what kind of "magnum" I'm shooting. People are usually friendly enough I let them shoot my stock M357-A1.

    After a mag, you can see all sorts of thinking going on inside their head as they come up to me and ask where I got the trigger job done..... :D

    Reloading really isn't that hard or expensive to get into. And you save alot of $ rolling your own. You do need a small desk or bench area to do it. But once you start reloading you'll never go back. Plus the custom aspect, playing around with different bullet weights and powders. Your accuracy will go threw the roof.

    I second this. Once I started reloading, the only ammo I'll buy is defensive carry ammo and birdshot. Especially not buying .357 Sig when I can load it for 10-12 cents per round.

    Apostle nope, advocate at times.
    I also like CZ, Tanfoglio, Glock, Tikka ... but there is something unique about Steyr stuff.

    Same, I wouldn't say apostle, but I do think Steyr sidearms are woefully underappreciated.

    Generally Steyr speaks quite well for themselves. I do have a tendency to introduce people to Steyr firearms. Steyr handguns, AUG and others are usually a very pleasant surprise to those who fire them. I love Steyr, always have, but good Lord their marketing is...let’s just say, less than optimum.

    I've shown off my L9A1 to several friends. Most all had never heard of one but were quite impressed with the ergos.

    I usually talk everyone's ear off about whatever new I've got.
    Maybe I just like b-llsh-tting, maybe I just own only what I love
