Stomping around New England

So I spent last week fighting canceled, delayed, and bumped flights to Boston-Logan and back at the behest of Sig Sauer, who has a couple of really interesting new guns coming out in a few months (more on that later) as well as to attend the opening of the company’s new 40,000 sq. ft. SIG Experience Center.

The facility includes a huge retail store where you can “try before you buy” anything Sig makes on the in-house series of shooting ranges ($10 per gun), a coffee shop, meeting and training areas, and the Sig Sauer Museum.

It is the latter, of course, that I found most interesting.

Originally an importer of West German-made guns established in Tyson’s Corner, Virginia in 1985, SIGARMS later became Sig Sauer in 2007 and has been manufacturing firearms in the U.S. for the past two decades.

I remember the $18,500 P226 Black Beauty from SHOT Show 2012, and it remains stunning.
