Let’s start today’s discussion with a pop quiz. Which of these activities is most likely to result in loss of a body part? Trimming your fingernails with a circular saw Checking the condition of your 1973 Chevelle serpentine drive belt while the engine is running. Cocking a break-barrel airgun incorrectly. OK, so we probably should […]
I have a Sig Sauer P320 pistol in the fire, smoke and noise variety. I love it, in part because it’s chambered in a caliber that’s more filling AND creates more noise. That would be .357 Sig. If you’re not familiar, think of a turbo charged 9mm that comes darn close to matching the ballistics […]

Last week we endured modern air travel and hit the road to Exeter, New Hampshire to check out Sig Sauer’s U.S. headquarters – the home of the company’s air gun manufacturing. That’s now branded as SIG Air and no longer the Sig Sauer ASP (Advanced Sport Pellet) Division. The idea is to support the company’s product strategy of disrupting the air market in many different arenas, not just in the sporting and competition fields.
