I just got one of these for my daily carry gun. The 6 + 1 did bother me at first, though you can get a factory 7 round magazine as well. (though it is highly overpriced in relation, with a retail price near $50) I have been to the range with it twice, and put 200 rounds through it. I had one FTE and it was my fault as I limp wristed it. I do with it was double action, but as I carried a 1911 cocked and locked for a while, doing so with this Sig doesn't bother me. The safety catch is well placed so that as you draw your thumb could easily disengage it and be ready to fire. It took me a while to convince myself to spend that much on a carry gun, but after doing so, I'm quite happy with the results. I've owned a few Sig's, and I've never been let down.
