    Very nice. I would never shoot it, but it would be fun to show off.

    That would need to be a post lottery win purchase for many folks. It's nice though and has had a lot of custom finish work done on it. I'd pass on the diamond set in the recoil spring guide rod even if I did win the lottery. That's a bit much for my personal tastes.

    Why? Because my guns are tools, not jewelry.
    I have a very strict gun control policy: if there's a gun around, I want to be in control of it.

    Why? Why does SIG do this. Build solid guns people will buy them, bling doesn't make them function better.

    meh.. Can't see it. Like blinging out a geo metro. If your gonna do it do it right. Colt Gold Cup National Match maybe with a high polish or custom engraving with maybe something fancy added on yet in good taste, but even then...Really?

    I doubt that Sig did this but they have done some ugly guns in the past. Still, I love my Sigs and have more Sigs than another brand.

    Ha! I just saw this on gunbroker.com, I didnt even bother clicking on the link. I am looking for a P238, too many choices, not sure which one.
    I carry a .357mag because no one bickers about the .357mag being "enough".
