    No apology needed. It's just a issue of me rotating through my handguns and deciding to concentrate on one basic platform instead of a Sig DA/SA and a Baer 1911. A 220 is hard to beat and was my primary for about 9 years.

    My apologies to the OP if I misunderstood the question. If weight or bulkiness aren't concerns then the full sized Sig P220 .45 is tough to beat imho. But if they aren't I don't really understand the question.

    I'm new so I'll just shut up and keep my opinions to myself.... for now
    If that's the handgun you shoot the best, I'd look into a couple different holsters before you change to something that's more comfortable for you. A good holster and belt combo can turn a brick into a comfortable carry weapon imo.

    There are many custom holster makers that can probably give you a good head start on having a more comfortable carry experience with your pistol of choice.

    Sixto ?

    There is also nothing wrong with the 1911 platform, in fact, if I could I would still use it instead of Sig. I just think with what you currently have, the Sig has more to offer.[/QUOTE]

    SIXTO,

    Could you throw out a little more info on this since it's a little confusing? Both of my Baer's run perfectly as my 6 Sig's do. In some ways, I prefer a Baer and then I prefer a Sig. I just want to get down to one platform for primary carry instead of my constant switching between the Baers and Sigs. Any and all info from anyone is really appriciated. Thanks.

    Carrying your pistol in an Uncle Mike's "fits all kinda" holster is like airline travel with WalMart bags instead of luggage.

    While I carry different pistols, they all go into action with a pull of the trigger--I have an aversion to switches (aka safety) that need to be turned on to get the gun into gear! I carry revolvers, Glocks and a G model Beretta 92.

    With that in mind I don't see it as crucial to carry just one gun all the time, but to carry those that operate the same way.
