Reports are that it will have a MSRP that is anywhere from $90 to $200 more than the Ruger LC9, depending on the source quoted. Both of these guns will be shown at the big 2011 Shot Show this month. As far as when any new firearm will make it to dealer shelves, I believe that only God knows that.
Here is a link to the previous discussion about the SIG P290:
A representative from SIG had said a couple of months ago that the SIG P290 would be on dealer shelves by Christmas. However, that obviously did not happen.
If you want to listen to the complete interview all about the P290, checkout the Podcast on this web page at GunTalk:
People have been pocket carrying steel framed S&W J frame snub nosed revolvers for many decades, and they weigh 22 to 23 oz.
Even the tiny Walther PPK in .380 weighs 20.8 oz So this SIG is no more heavy than a PPK.
If you are having problems with your pants, do what us old farts do, and wear suspenders.
Eh, I think I'll stick with my First Edition Walther PPS thank you.
Gun control can be blamed in part for allowing 9/11 to happen.

Nothing about the gun itself would disqualify it from purchase in those states.
However, the process to get a handgun certified for sale in those states is quite a lengthy procedure. There is a lot of Government Red Tape involved.
People in California and Massachusetts will have to wait for the gun.
