Not to deviate the thread, heavymetalman, but I strongly suggest you get a copy of "Shooting Missology" from TacticlResponseGear.com - It extensively covers pistols that shoot low and left.
I agree with Sixto; once you solve that problem you can pick up about any gun and put the shot where you want it.

Where self preservation is concerned, if you're not cheating, your not trying...
Low and to the Left (if your right handed) is probably not the gun. Even if you go to a more expensive gun it may not solve the problem. With a gun used for self defense (i.e. Combat gun) I would fix your trigger control issue before you spend the money on something else.
SIG220 is probably one of the most accurate reliable combat handguns out of the box. But it really comes down to the user. The last course I took their where people in the course with Les Bear and I was shooting a very loose tolerance G21 SF. I had the best Qual score then anybody in the course with a gun that cost a fraction of the price. I know this is probably not what you want to hear, but before you go out and just drop some more cash on another handgun shoot a bunch of difference onces before you do. You may find that going UP in price may not be the solution. You may find that a cheaper XD, Glock, or M&P may fix your solution for combat acurracy. However, you could just shoot your Sig until it breaks in and then stick with it.

Just out of curiosity, what is the CCW that worked for you?
Also, dry fire! It doesn't cost anything, at it will greatly improve your shooting.

I find that once you develope good shooting habits they follow you no matter what gun you shoot and vice versa,I think Tx CHL is taking 90+ days now,I carry a RIA 1911 the gun cost about 379.00 and will shoot the center out of the bullseye at 10 yds slow fire.I also carry a SA 5" 1911 and conceal them wearing cargo shorts and a T-shirt 11 months out of the year,For times when I need something smaller and lighter I have a Keltec P11 9mm that is currently getting fixed.and will also be my BUG.The P11 has one of the stiffest triggers i've pulled in a long time and I need lots of practice to get to where I can feel the "break"
