I am heavily invested in the 1911 and Glock platforms. That said I would like to get a striker fired full-size gun with a manual safety-a modern approximation of the 1911. I’ve come to the conclusion that for 24/7 use in rural or wilderness areas a manual safety is a big plus. Additionally though I live in Free America, as a CCWer trying to obey inane restrictions, I end up having to unholster and stow the gun periodically (post office, school, government bldgs, airport pickups, gun buster establishments etc.). A manual safety makes unholstering, stowing, reholstering safer.
This forum got me thinking hard about the S&W M&P 2.0 5” and maybe compact but now am thinking about the Sig M17.
Any experiences with the M17 or opinions on it?
