I braved the cold today with my grandpa to go do some shooting. We were both using 9mm - I had my Steyr C9A1, and he had a Sig P250 compact. We stuck my Viridian C5L on the bottom of his gun, though even the green laser was a bit difficult to see on the snow in the bright daylight. Regardless, the difference in the two pistols struck me - I'd shoot his Sig with the double-action trigger and high bore axis, and I was accurate, but slow, and it took me a while both to get the sights back on target and to execute a proper trigger squeeze. Then, I went back to my Steyr, and it was like coming home! It just fit my hand better, had much less pronounced muzzle flip, and the sights were easier to align for me. I was MUCH faster with follow-up shots, and accuracy didn't suffer at all. In fact, I was more accurate with my Steyr with irons than with the Sig with the laser! That might have more to do with familiarity though. My Steyr is still new, but we've got a pretty cool bond going on now - It's definitely my favorite. I had been feeling kinda iffy on my Steyr after the light-strike problems, but after seeing the Sig choke on the same ammo a bit, and feeling the difference in ergonomics between the two, I felt much better about my choice. I gave it a good cleaning as an apology for my doubt, and I'm putting it back in my holster with confidence. Now all I have to do is wait for my custom holster to arrive, so I can CCW with my Viridian!
