I've sold some guns recently and their absence left a black hole in my safe. The vacuum was sucking the air right out of the house, so there was only one thing I could do - repair the damage. Soooo, I bought a Sig 220 Carry. That seems to have stablized the imbalance for the time being.
I'm typically a 9mm fan, but I do like .45ACP too, well, until I went to Walmart to by some .45 ACP ammo and went into sticker shock! The 9mm was going for $15.88 per 100; the .45 ACP for $28.99 per 100. Talk about re-evaluating!
But I am totally happy with the 220 Carry. It is my current carry gun. For those not familiar with the Carry model, it is a 220 with a 1/2 shorter barrel. Grip and everything else is the same.
Hmmm, looks like I've got a little lube sneaking out of the slide on the 220.
I was expecting some major recoil, being accustom to 9mm and having a shorter barrel, but it wasn't nearly as bad as I anticipated. In fact, it didn't seem any more than a 9mm, but I'm sure it was.
I've only shot 150 rounds through it so far, but it does shoot good! The sights index just a bit low; well, lower than my P226R and P229R.
Didn't have a problem of any kind except running out of ammo before I was ready quit.
So why the Carry? Well, since it has the full size grip, it holds 8 + 1 rounds, and that 1/2" shorter barrel can be significant. For my carry method, it seems to be just about the perfect barrel length and I don't have to give up capacity to get that.
If they come out with a 226 Carry, I'll have to sell another gun, 'cause I'm gonna get one.
