This is the Tech21 Eco Mesh in Clear/White. Wife got the orange band so we can tell our phones apart.
The Tech21 cases have been my go-to as they are slim, feel good in the hand, add minimum weight and bulk, and most importantly, actually protect the phone.
I wheeled and dealed (and I was selling my Ruger GP1001) and ended up with a Sig Sauer P320. It seems to be a current favorite of the gun crowd, and I can see why. The trigger is very good, especially for a stock striker-fired pistol. I would say it’s easily up with an H&K VP9 or a Walther PPQ. It is much better than the old M&P triggers2 or XDM.
Ergonomics are solid. The P320 fits as well in my hand as my M&P 9C, or the H&K VP9, or the Walther PPQ. I find it a bit more comfortable than the XDM series. I say solid and not great, as the slide height/bore axis is higher than my trusty M&P and the grip angle is different. I can draw my M&P and get right on target; that’s not the case with the Sig. Of course, that’s also because my M&P is the one I train with the most and carry the most.
Speaking of sights, they are SIGLITE® Night Sights and are quite good, especially for stock sights. Big enough to pick out, narrow enough to see light around the front sight. I read on the Interwebs that you have to hold at 6 o’clock at 10-15 yards. I found that holding on the desired POI worked at that range for me.
Right now, still debating selling it or keeping it. I want to like it, and I do like 9mm carry guns. Maybe some more time on the trigger to see how rapidly I can get accustomed to the different grip.
1 I know, I know, but I picked up an SP101 for trail use and I don’t like having safe queens.
2 The new M&Ps have better triggers, like the M&P Shield. I also read that Smith and Wesson is dropping the Pro Center triggers across the whole M&P line.

The final nail in the coffin for Aperture in email form from Apple.
Very nicely executed Outlook for iOS and Android released by Microsoft. A lot of modern UI concepts well executed, a nice design, and works with Dropbox, Google Drive, and OneDrive.
Shame my IT folks have our services locked down so tight that even a phone approved by AirWatch can’t use this app. “Productivity and checking out our competition? Nah, we can’t have that!”
Flying Dog Kujo Imperial Coffee Stout. Good coffee flavor but not at all overpowering. Just damned good – perfect for a cold winter night.
Lost Rhino Rhinoel. Belgian style Dubbel. Low IBU (30 IIRC), 7.5% ABV. Sweet bouquet, good malt flavor. We did not drink it from snifters since we aren’t hoity (plus the glasses need to be washed). You can definitely feel the warmth from the alcohol. A good winter afternoon beer; not one for longer sessions.
