Hey Caddi - It only makes sense that you would bring up "thunderware" .....It so fits your great sense of humor. I'm hoping that maybe a better holster will help because I really like my Sig 229. However, I'm still keeping my eye open for something smaller as I'm not confident I'll ever be comfortable carrying something that large. I too like the idea of having more than just a few rounds ready. I guess for every benefit, there is also a sacrifice. Why can I just find a 350 pound linebacker that can run faster than any receiver???
