    So a couple of weeks ago I found a Sig P320 that I totally forgot that I purchased almost 2years ago. It was tucked away in a corner at the top of my closet. I cleaned it, lubed it and took out on the family’s property out in the county to make sure it still function and it did extremely well. So after I decided that I will show it some love and give it a make over, check out the pics below.

    A recurring nighttime dream I keep having is I find several guns that I forgot I had. It's never happened in real life yet.

    As Daniel Boone reportedly said when asked:

    “ I have never been lost, but once I was bewildered for three days.”

    I have never “found” anything, but I have “surprised” myself a coupla times. :dunno:

    Nice grips! For me, the SS slide clashes with the rest of the pistol, but it is nicely done!

    Thanks, The grips feel great in the hand, I also installed the Armory craft tungsten grip weights to give it a heavier feel.

    You can put it that way, I can’t say I technically lost it.

    This recently happened to me when I moved out of my old house. Found 6 pistols in my spare bedroom that I forgot I bought 3 years ago.

    A related problem is remembering I have some specific gun but have no recollection of where I put it.

    I knew I wasn’t the only one this had to happen to.

    Yeah, don't own nearly enough for that. Also too deliberate a purchaser to forget the weeks of research and debating before I pull the trigger.

    Closest I've gotten is thinking a relative had borrowed one only to find it in the safe later.

    Looks great OP! Really think those Wilson frames look slick.

    Nice upgrade in appearance. Can't comprehend forgetting about a gun I own. It it were bac1023, I'd understand.

    Just kidding with you bac. Don

    Evidently it’s more common than I originally thought. At least I didn’t lose it out in the streets.

    Your statement above really struck a chord with me; whenever I find myself interested in a firearm I go on a mission to find out as much as I can about it, particularly the quality of materials and workmanship, its fit and finish, reliability, and accuracy. Whenever it's not possible to shoot what I'm interested in before purchasing, if I feel confident enough in the sources of information that I'd gleaned during my information quest and everything sounded positive, I just go ahead with the purchase. Thankfully I've only rarely been disappointed.

    Happened to me a while back, haven’t been shooting in quite a while but want to get back into it if the range ever opens back up.

    Was rearranging some guns and found a Mossberg shockwave. Bought it a few years ago when they came out. It’s so short it fell behind other guns, a combination of out of sight out of mind and not shooting will do that to you.

    Anyone that feels like they have "too many" guns can send me a few, I'll hold on to them for ya!

    Nice! I need to get that grip module for my P320 that I never shoot anymore.

    I initially was going to get it from the WC official website, but it was cheaper on the Midway USA site.
