    Female Cousins New Gun

    So my cousin used me to take her to the big bad gun store and help her pick out a gun. She narrowed it down to a PX4 and a Sig p250. She ended up picking the p250. Of the two I think she made the right choice. Now I need to find her a decent range holster, and become somewhat familiar with the manual of arms. Does anybody here have any experience with these guns? I am probably going to be teaching her the basics. She is not going to be CCW anytime soon. Thanks in advance.

    BTW Sorry I do not have pictures. LOL

    The P250 manual of arms is pretty simple. It's a DAO gun that should go bang every time you pull the trigger. It should be the same as any semi-auto pistol, really. No decocker or safety to get used to. I know a few of our resident holster makers have P250 molds by now (I am pretty sure, at least). SIG makes their own paddle holster for it, so that's a start.

    By all reports it should be a great shooter!

    I am a Glock man by trade. I understand DAO and actually prefer it. I know SIG is qualiyt and they would not be putting out inferior guns. I am just looking for any advanced advice anybody can offer.

    IMHO SIG 250 is to NEW to make a accurate assessment on either in favor or against.

    I've had very good reliability with the SIG's I own and have sold, but those SIG's have been in production for quite some time. I hope the SIG P250 becomes another great gun for SIG, but only time will tell.

    The 250 is "new" enough that you probably won't have a large choice in holsters yet. On the plus side it's a SIG and most the the reviews/comments have been positive.

    As far as manual of arms, of course the owner's manual is good, but here is a promo video. The first half explains operation and the second half shows detailed field strip and reassembly.

    good for her. I would have a SIG if I could justify the extra cost compared to a Glock ;-). eyeing a SIG239 or subcompact SIG250 in the long run.

    For a range holster you might as well buy a Blackhawk SERPA for now. $48.00
    That should serve her decently well as an immediately available rig.

    +1 on the Serpas. If you have not tried one yet I suggest picking one up. Whatever you do don't pay the extra for the fake-o carbon fiber. Other than that, tell her congratulations for me and shoot safe!

    I handled one. It feels awesome in the hand just like any Sig. I would like to pick one up down the road. The only thing that I didn't like was that the back of the slide looks like it will collect a lot of dust bunnys that can work their way into the gun.

    It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!

    I have a T&E sitting on my desk right now that I got direct of Sig. I love the Sig "P" series, but I got to say, I'm not impressed with the 250, or any of the Sig polymers. I don't think this will be a hot seller for Sig, and expect it to go down the same path as the Pro series.

    It does feel nice in hand but the trigger is a bit spongy, not at all what I would expect on a Sig. The modular design made for a lot of compromise IMO, it is a bit bulky and well... very Taurus like in appearance.
    It does point and handle very well, just like the rest of the Sigs.
    The ambi slide stop is a cool feature, and the trigger housing is plenty large enough for a gloved hand. It is equipped with a light rail, those are always a plus.
    Take down is simple and straight forward, much like any other Sig. Cleaning and routine maintenance should not be an issue.

    Shooting is OK once you get past the looong spongy trigger. I have about 100 rounds through it, 0 malfunctions and it was plenty accurate. It shot rather soft compared to a Glock, probably more comparable to an M&P. It was pleasant to shoot, but it wasn't anything to write to Momma about.

    I'll post a few, but my pictures always stink and it wont look anything different than the ones found on Sigs website.




    There it is; but I told you I wasnt a photographer!

    Another smart feature I forgot to mention was the indents on the bottom of the grip; its mags gripping and stripping the mag out much quicker and easier should you need to do that.
