    P220 Carry vs. P220 Compact

    I was wondering if anyone had first hand expierence with both of these guns and could offer up some useful insight?

    I like to concealed carry in jeans and an untucked polo or t-shirt.....

    I have read reviews of the 220 Compact and they said that you can now get 4 fingers on the grip and the beavertail makes it nicer to shoot.....

    I cant find a 220 Compact (245) to hold but I can get one ordered if it's what I decide on.....

    I like the ergos of the 220 carry as it feels perfect in my hand.

    Anyway enough rambling just look for insight and advice, how you carry, your holster, opinions on concealing full size grip vs the compacts shortened grip..........

    Anyway thanks in advance guys......

    If you feel like making a pretty long drive (approx 2hrs.) I know where there's a 245. PM me if you'd like the details.

    The Sig 245 is no longer in production.

    Sig scraped the 245... only the 220 carry is available.

    The 220 carry conceals okay if you have a holster with a lot of cant. In a straight drop the grip would stick out like a sore thumb.

    I shoot both the P245 and the P220. Love both guns. I don't find either gun all that difficult to conceal, though the shorter butt of the 245 offers a smaller package. The beauty of the P245 (and the current P220 Compact) is that you can either use a grip adapter with the 8 round mag to have a standard size butt or use the 6 round mag for a shorty butt.

    I can't see any difference in accuracy or dependability between my 220 and 245. Great guns! Haven't played with the newer (beavertail) 220 Compact.
