Just recently switched over to the 320 and striker fire. Love the 320 so much that had to buy a compact model for carry. I never thought I'd convert. The two 320s were all I took to the range the last four times out. My C3 that I've carried for years was last shot the first time I took the 320 to the range. First weeks of idleness since it's purchase. I'd never dream of selling.... ANYTHING. I learned that there will always come a time I will want a sold gun back. But, they are definitely going to see a lot of safe time going forward.

Words of wisdom if I've ever heard them.

Huh?

Striker fired guns are definitely "in" right now with many good ones available. I wouldn't sell the DA/SA guns just yet, they are still an excellent system and inherently mechanically sound and very safe.

Well after 35 years with her... I guess so...

Anyhow, after ya'll great feedback and much handling of each of my DA/SA's I decided there is only one Beretta I am willing to let go of.

Best laid plans of mice and men...

I have gone through such a thinning and reordering in the past 12 months I think I finally figured that I am down to the ones that I truly love and have a valid use for, aside from the one that was picked up in a trade as a bit of an experiment.

My SIG's I loathe parting with because ... well, they are SIG's! That and each one has a valid purpose that it can fill.

My Beretta's are much the same as each serves a purpose, albeit somewhat unique as it relates to the SIGs.

Thanks for the great input and talking me off the ledge. I will focus most of my training to the 320. I realized too that the majority of the time I use the DA/SA's they are post rack SA. I have never trained properly for the DA pull, thus the 320 simplifies that a bit. However, I do need to spend a bit of time training on the DA portion.

Same here, never thought I would own a striker gun, but the 320 won me over.

As for the latter, I had a Colt Custom Shop Python...never fired...sold it for around $1000. Now they are worth $3000.

Yep.

I used to be like: "all striker fired cause the same trigger pull and whatever" ( to paraphrase a million other posts )

Then I decided I could learn the DA/SA trigger as I consider it safer to carry, and you know what? I learned it just fine like most other people on this site do.

And so can you.

THe custom shop Python was extended barrel, with trigger work and a few other changes I cant remember.

As for consistent trigger pull, it is totally a training thing to be sure. Both, in my mind, are totally viable.

I agree with this. If you want to dedicate your time to one platform that is fine! I actually recommend you do one or the other, actually, but unless you just want to use the DA/SA guns for more striker guns/accessories, I highly recommend keeping them. Of course, you're reading input from a guy who did exactly what you're contemplating. I got rid of all my DA/SA guns to dedicate my entire focus on striker fire, but I do intend to get an entire line of DA/SA guns sometime in the future, as well as a line of 1911s to boot.

I've gone the other direction, all my defensive handguns are DA /SA with a decocker (HK, SIG, CZ Beretta). However I've kept my strikers for range guns, don't use them often just didn't want to part with all of them yet.

Secret to a long marriage?

Every morning I wake up and first thing from my lips is, "I love you honey!". She answers, "You can't afford a divorce!".

I sure love her!

Congrats on all those married years, bear! I know they weren't all of 'em easy, they almost never all are. But a promise is just that, and working to make it work is worth it. I respect that.
